Yes, There Is Someone Who Dies Onscreen More Often than Sean Bean
Two years ago, we debuted the Sean Bean Death Reel here at Pajiba, a supercut of all of Bean’s onscreen deaths. At that time, the count was 22, although it did not yet take into account his TV deaths on [spoiler] and Missing. I do not know, however, if he died in recent movies, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, Soldier of Fortune, and Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, but even assuming he had, he would still fall below 30 onscreen deaths, which means that he could not hold the title for most onscreen deaths.
Actually, I don’t know who officially holds that title, but I do know that Kim Coates — who most of you know as Tig Trager from Sons of Anarchy (Spoiler: He’s still alive) — has been killed onscreen 32 times now. Twenty-three movies, nine TV Shows. Give it another year, and he’s guaranteed to add to that total on Sons of Anarchy.
Congratulations, Kim! You’ve successfully suffered more gruesome deaths than Sean Bean.
