10 Actors Pissed Off By Their TV Character Deaths

These actors hated their TV dirt naps.

TV shows by their nature are far more complex than movies, if only because they're a longer-form medium with so many more actors, storylines, and moving parts.

It's impossible for everything a series does to please everyone, not least its cast, who over the course of multi-season arcs are bound to have their own creative misgivings with a show's direction.

This is particularly tricky when it comes to an actor being written off a series, especially if it's by way of a death that's either shocking, violent, or controversial by design.

These 10 roles, all played by terrific character actors and A-listers alike, met ends which left the actors themselves frustrated, irritated, and straight-up pissed off.

But rather than play things diplomatic and keep their feelings to themselves, they sooner or later sounded off about their issues with how their characters were 86'd.

Whether these death scenes worked or not - and in many examples they absolutely did - the actors were nevertheless crushed to be killed off, often when they least expected it...
