Stephen Fry in 'Blackadder II: Chains'
Stephen Fry (1957 - )
Actor/director/novelist
The Young Ones: Bambi (1984) [Lord Snot]: Killed in a (comical) explosion when Adrian Edmondson throws a grenade at Stephen's team during a game show; we see a flash of light and smoke, then four empty chairs where the team had been.

Blackadder II: Chains (1986) [Lord Melchett]: Stabbed to death (off-screen), along with the rest of the cast, by Hugh Laurie. His body is shown lying of the floor with the others afterwards, with the killer standing over them disguised as Miranda Richardson (indeed, he's actually played by Miranda with Hugh's voice dubbed in).

Blackadder's Christmas Carol (1988) [Lord Melchett/Lord Frondo]: As "Lord Frondo," he is disintegrated (along with Patsy Byrne and Hugh Laurie) with a futuristic device by Rowan Atkinson, in Rowan's vision of "Christmas Future." (Played for comic effect, obviously.)

Wilde (1997) [Oscar Wilde]: Dies (off-screen) of meningitis; his death is mentioned in the on-screen text at the end of the movie. (Thanks to Sheena)

V for Vendetta (2005) [Gordon Dietrich]: Executed (off-screen), after a forbidden Koran is discovered in his home when he's arrested for ridiculing John Hurt on television. (Thanks to Patrick)
