Elijah Wood (1981 - )
The Witness (1993) [Little Boy]: Strangled by Gary Sinise in the concentration camp. (Thanks to David)

North (1994) [North]: Shot by a hitman as Elijah runs towards his parents (Jason Alexander and Julia Louis-Dreyfus) in a dream sequence; the scene cuts abruptly as Elijah wakes up. (He survives the movie in reality.) (Thanks to Tommy)

The Ice Storm (1997) [Mikey Carver]: Accidentally electrocuted when a power line falls and hits the metal guardrail he's sitting on. His body is shown again later on when Kevin Kline discovers him, then takes him to Elijah's family's home. (Thanks to Mike)

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003) [Frodo Baggins]: Is shown setting off in a boat leaving for The Undying Lands; while it's arguable whether this could be considered a literal journey or a symbol of death, I'll go ahead and list it because several people have suggested it as a "death scene." (Thanks to Caleb and Frank)

Sin City (2005) [Kevin]: Decapitated with a hacksaw (off-screen) by Mickey Rourke in the woods, after Mickey amputates Elijah's arms and legs and lets a wolf eat part of Elijah's torso. His severed head is shown afterwards when Mickey holds it up, and again when Mickey presents it to Rutger Hauer. (Thanks to Gary and Robert)

Paris, je t'aime (2006) [The Boy (Le Garcon)]: Bitten on the throat and drained of blood by Olga Kurylenko, after he slashes his wrists with a broken bottle in an attempt to attract her and then falls down a flight of stairs. He then comes back to life as a vampire. (Thanks to Zachary)

Day Zero (2007) [Feller]: Commits suicide by jumping from a building. (Thanks to Raea)

Revenge for Jolly! (2012) [Thomas]: Shot in the stomach by Brian Petsos after Elijah dismisses the death of Brian's dog as "just a dog"; he dies shortly afterwards while apologizing to Brian.

Maniac (2013) [Frank Zito]: Fatally injured after being hit by a car; he dies after making his way back to his apartment and hallucinating that his mannequins are tearing him apart. His body is shown afterwards as the police investigate. (See also Joe Spinell in the original 1980 version.) (Thanks to Tommy)
