Tragic Celebrity Deaths: Actors Who Died During Filming

Fans love to watch their favorite stars mature on the big and small screens, but sometimes a celebrity’s life is cut tragically short due to unforeseen circumstances. The following actors died due to a variety of reasons — from drug overdoses and murder to even their own wife killing them unexpectantly while in bed.

Paul Walker

Walker died at age 30 in a motor vehicle accident. The Fast & Furious franchise actor was the passenger in his friend’s (Roger Rodas) Porsche Carrera GT. Rodas crashed into a lamp post while the pair was on their way to a charity event. Rodas was reportedly driving 100 miles per hour in a 45-mph zone.

Paul Walker

Walker was in the middle of filming Furious 7 when he died in 2013. Producers decided to retire Walker’s character from the film series. The actor’s brothers Caleb and Cody were hired as stand-ins in order to complete the film. He left behind his daughter Meadow, and girlfriend, Jasmine Pilchard Gosnell.
