Film Deaths:[edit | edit source]

  • Deadfall (1993) [Eddie]: Scalded to death when Michael Biehn pushes his head into a deep-fat fryer causing the skin on his face to burn off.  It should be noted Nicolas reprises the role in Arsenal with no explanation to his survival.
  • Face/Off (1997) [Castor Troy]: Shot with a spear gun and pinned into a wall by John Travolta (with Nicolas' face), while wearing his face; he dies later after he sings “Ready, ready for the big ride, baby” for the last time.
  • Windtalker (2002) [Sergeant Joe Enders]: Shot to death by Japanese soldiers as Nicolas tries to carry Adam Beach to safety. He dies whilst Adam prays over him.
  • The Wicker Man (2006) [Edward Malus]: Burned to death by Erika-Shaye Gair when she sets fire to the wicker man with Nicolas inside, on top of having his legs broken and having been stung by bees, while the colonists look on. (See Edward Woodward for the 1973 original.)
  • Next (2007) [Cris 'Frank Cadillac' Johnson]: "Dies" several times in his future visions, under various circumstances (car accident, shot, explosion), though he survives the movie in reality.
