25 – In fact, many actors and stunt doubles have died during filming.
Like David Holmes, many other actors and stunt doubles have died tragically while filming. It’s expected that a few small injuries every now and then can occur when filming scenes involving explosions, hand-to-hand combat, high speeds, and more, but sometimes the injuries are much more serious.
For instance, stunt doubles or members of film crews have been accidentally killed or seriously injured while filming movies such as: The Hangover Part II, The Expendables 2, The Dark Knight, XXX, Top Gun, and more. However, while filming The Crow, the main character, Brandon Lee (son of Bruce Lee), was killed when a projectile from a prop gun actually shot him in the abdomen.
