|Gottfried John (1942 - )|
|Berlin Alexanderplatz (1980) [Reinhold Hoffmann]: Shot repeatedly in the chest by Gunter Lamprecht in a dream/hallucination sequence; when Gunter looks down at the ground, Gottfried's body has been replaced by Barbara Valentin's. (Gottfried survives the mini-series in reality.)
Mata Hari (1985) [Wolff]: Shot repeatedly in the chest in a shoot-out with police in the street.
Wings of Fame (1990) [Zlatogorski]: Dies (off-screen) some time before the movie begins (I can't recall whether the circumstances of his death were revealed); the movie takes place in the afterlife.
GoldenEye (1995) [General Arkady Grigorovich Ourumov]: Shot in the chest with a machine-gun by Pierce Brosnan while Gottfried is holding Izabella Scorupco at gunpoint on the train. (Thanks to Matt and Andrew)
