With Furious 7 only a week away from its release, audiences everywhere are already gearing up for the chills that are almost guaranteed to accompany seeing Paul Walker on camera for the first time during his long-awaited final performance. The entire cast has obviously had heavy hearts over the past few months. This installment is supposed to be the best yet, and it's clear that the cast and production crew will dedicate it to Walker and his family.
He's not the only member of a a film or TV production who passed away, though. Here is a list of some notable people who passed away in the middle of filming a TV or Film production and may they all rest in peace.
1. Heath Ledger
Australian actor Heath Ledger had just wrapped filming Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight and was in the middle of production for Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus when he was found dead in his Manhattan apartment from a drug overdose. Gilliam brought on Ledger's close friends Jude Law, Johnny Depp, and Colin Farrell to step in for Ledger in his remaining scenes.
2. Marilyn Monroe
During the middle of filming comedy Something's Got to Give, one of Hollywood's brightest stars ever was found dead at her Brentwood, CA home on August 5, 1962. Marilyn's death was probably suicide, as she passed from an overdose of barbiturates.
