Ross Martin in 'The Twilight Zone: Death Ship'
Ross Martin (1920 - 1981)
Conquest of Space (1955) [Sgt. Andre Fodor]: Hit by a meteor while he's outside the ship doing repairs to the hull.

The Colossus of New York (1958) [Dr. Jeremy Spensser]: Hit by a truck while retrieving Charles Herbert's toy plane from the road. His father (Otto Kruger) places Ross' brain into a robot body (Ed Wolff); his brain and new body finally die when Charles deactivates his control switch.

The Twilight Zone: The Four of Us Are Dying (1960) [Johnny Foster]: Plays one of the identities assumed by Harry Townes (using his shape-changing ability); after his Don Gordon identity is shot by Peter Brocco, he briefly changes back to Ross before finally resuming Harry's original appearance in death.

Experiment in Terror (The Grip of Fear) (1962) [Garland Humphrey 'Red' Lynch]: Shot to death by Glenn Ford as Ross tries to escape.

The Twilight Zone: Death Ship (1963) [Lt. Ted Mason]: Killed (off-screen), along with Fred Beir and Jack Klugman, when their ship crashes on an alien planet; their bodies are shown afterwards when they discover their own bodies. A variety of explanations are suggested for the situation (time travel, a telepathic illusion) before it's revealed that the "living" crew are actually ghosts, being prevented from moving on to the afterlife by Jack's refusal to accept his death.
