Film Deaths[edit | edit source]
- Caravaggio (1986) [Lena]: Drowned off-screen in a lake by Sean Bean; her body is shown floating in the water afterwards, then lying on a table after being fished out. She is shown again in a lengthy sequence of Nigel Terry using her body as a model for his painting, with an interlude of his mournfully cradling her in his arms. Tilda was pregnant at the time of her death, consequently, her unborn child also died.
- Conceiving Ada (1997) [Ada Byron King, Countess of Lovelace]: Dies of uterine cancer in her bedroom, while communicating through time with Francesca Faridany on Francesca's computer monitor.
- The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (2005) [The White Witch]: Killed by the lion Aslan (voiced by Liam Neeson) during the final battle; we only see Aslan about to strike. Her body is not shown afterwards.
- The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) [Madame D.]: Poisoned (off-screen) by Adrien Brody; we see her body in a crime scene photo and later when Ralph Fiennes visits her body in her casket. (Tilda was in heavy old age make-up for this role.)
- Doctor Strange (2016) [The Ancient One]: Fatally wounded after Mads Mikkelsen stabs her through the chest with a magically-conjured sword and kicks her through a portal leading to the side of a skyscraper; she dies on the operating table shortly afterwards, using her powers to extend her final moments to talk to Benedict Cumberbatch as astral projections.
- Suspiria (2018) [Madame Blanc / Dr. Josef Klemperer / Helena Marcos]: Portraying three different characters, Madame Blanc is lethally wounded by supernatural powers of Helena Marcos and her head is almost separated from the body (although her death was never shown on-screen as she stands on her knees barely alive at the end of the film), and Helena Marcos received the kiss of death from Malgosia Bela under Dakota Johnson's instruction. Dr. Josef Klemperer survives the movie.
TV Deaths[edit | edit source]
- Zastrozzi: A Romance: Murder (1986; mini-series) [Julia]: Stabbed repeatedly by Hilary Trott.
