Steve Emerson (19?? - )
Note: IMDB currently has some of Steve’s credits divided up into two separate listings, but after comparing his appearances in Bloody New Year and Shaun of the Dead, I believe they’re the same person.
- The Terror (1978) [Burning Man]: Burned to death (though I can’t recall the exact circumstances.)
- Bloody New Year (Horror Hotel; Time Warp Terror) (1987) [Dad]: Thrown through a wall and over a cliff by the undead Suzy Aitchison; due to the time/reality warp on the island, he later appears as an undead being himself.
- Shaun of the Dead (2004) [John]: Dies, off-screen, of the zombie virus; he appears as a zombie afterwards in the pub and is finally destroyed when his head is knocked into the jukebox after being beaten with pool cues by Simon Pegg and the others.
As a professional stunt performer, Steve has probably “died” in place of other actors, though I don’t know any specific examples.
