10. Brandon Lee – Fake Gunfire Leads To Death


Although at the time of his death he was on the cusp of sharing his father’s success, being the son of Bruce Lee did not make Brandon Lee indestructible. While shooting a scene for Alex Proyas’ 1993 film The Crow, Lee was required to walk through a doorway carrying a grocery bag while actor Michael Massee fired blank rounds at him from approximately 15 feet away.

He died later that day at the age of 28
