  • Stalingrad (1993) [Lieutenant Hans von Witzland]: Freezes to death with his men in the snow. 
  • The Stendhal Syndrome (1996) [Alfredo Grossi]:
  • Prince Valiant (1997) [Thagnar]: Stabbed in the chest and stomach at the end of a swordfight with Stephen Moyer (after the stabbing, it's unclear who stabbed who until Thomas collapses).
  • Tease (Poison) (2000) [Johnny Krieger]: Stabbed to death by Mandy Schaffer while having sex with her in a hot tub.

  • Blade II (2002) [Damaskinos]: Throat torn out by his son (Luke Goss); his body turns to stone and breaks apart afterwards. (Thomas was wearing heavy vampire makeup for the role.)
  • Adolf Eichmann (Eichmann) (2007) [Adolf Eichmann]: Hanged for war crimes. (I haven't seen this film, but this was the fate of the real-life Eichmann)
  • Next (2007) [Mr. Smith]: Shot in the head by Julianne Moore. This turns out to be one of Nicolas Cage's future visions; the movie ends before it plays out in reality, so it's unknown whether Thomas will still be killed or whether he'll be captured alive this time.
