41. Zoë Tamerlis Lund
Abel Ferrara’s cult movies Ms. 45 and Bad Lieutenant made Zoë Tamerlis Lund a star, but her death in 1999 at the age of 37 may have gone unnoticed by both fans of those films and the wider public at large. Tragically, Lund passed away due to heart failure, prompted by her cocaine use – a habit the actress acquired as a reported replacement for taking heroin.

40. David Graf
In 2004 David Graf’s widow Kathryn debuted a one-woman play in which she spoke about her late husband and her loss – perhaps to the surprise of some, who may not have known that the Police Academy star had even died. The Sgt. Eugene Tackleberry actor – who also had a recurring role in The West Wing – passed away in 2001, aged 50, owing to a heart attack suffered while at the wedding of his brother-in-law.
