Brother of
Joseph Fiennes and Martha Fiennes (director)
Ex-Mr. Alex Kingston
Wuthering Heights (1992) [Heathcliff]: Dies (off-screen) of natural causes (possibly brought about by Juliette Binoche's ghost); his body is shown afterwards when Paul Geoffrey enters the room.

The Baby of Macon (1993) [The Bishop's Son]: Gored to death by a bull while Ralph is in a barn with Julia Ormond. (Nudity alert: Full frontal and rear) (Thanks to Matt)

Schindler's List (1993) [Amon Goeth]: Executed by hanging. (Thanks to Leanne and Cedric)

The English Patient (1996) [Count Laszlo de Almasy]: Dies of an overdose of morphine, adminstered by Juliette Binoche (with his implicit consent) as a mercy killing. (Ralph is covered with burn make-up for this role.) (Thanks to Leanne)

Oscar and Lucinda (1997) [Oscar Hopkins]: Drowned after being trapped inside the church as it sinks into the river. (Thanks to Beth and Cindy)

Sunshine (1999) [Ignatz Sonnenschein/Adam Sors/Ivan Sors]: Playing a triple role as three generations of the same family, the grandfather "Ignatz" dies (off-screen) of natural causes; his death is mentioned in the grandson "Ivan's" narration. The father "Adam" is frozen to death by being hanged by his wrists and sprayed with cold water in the yard of the concentration camp in winter. (The son "Ivan" survives the movie.) (Nudity alert: Full frontal and rear as "Adam")

Red Dragon (2002) [Francis Dolarhyde]: Shot three times in the head by Mary-Louise Parker, after being shot repeatedly in the chest by Edward Norton. (See also Tom Noonan in the 1986 version Manhunter.) (Thanks to Leanne)

The Constant Gardener (2005) [Justin Quayle]: Shot repeatedly (off-screen) by hitmen in the desert; the scene cuts from Ralph sitting in the desert to a scene of his funeral (where Richard McCabe's eulogy points out the impossibility of the official "suicide" story), then cuts back to show Ralph waiting as the hitmen arrive.

The Hurt Locker (2008) [Contractor Team Leader]: Shot to death by an Iraqi sniper during an ambush in the desert. (Thanks to Tommy, ND, Nilescu, Vegeta, and Matthew)

In Bruges (2008) [Harry Waters]: Commits suicide by shooting himself in the mouth, after accidentally killing Jordan Prentice while shooting at Colin Farrell. (With Jordan being a little person, Ralph mistakenly assumed that he'd killed a child and committed suicide out of guilt.) (Thanks to Christina, Jack, Nilescu, ND, and Tommy)

Coriolanus (2011) [Caius Martius Coriolanus]: Stabbed to death by a group of conspirators led by Gerard Butler. (I haven't seen this, but I'm roughly familiar with Shakespeare's play.)

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011) [Lord Voldemort]: Disintegrates into ash during a magical battle with Daniel Radcliffe, after the last of Ralph's horcruxes is destroyed by Matthew Lewis. (Thanks to Tommy and ND)
