29. Ashleigh Aston Moore

1995 coming-of-age flick Now and Then was chock-full of fledgling and future young stars, with the likes of Christina Ricci, Thora Birch and Gaby Hoffman among them. And Ashleigh Aston Moore, who played Chrissy Dewitt, might have had a career as successful as, if not more so, those of any of her co-stars. It was success that Moore sadly never lived to find, however, as she passed away in 2007, aged only 26, of pneumonia and bronchitis.

28. Michael Clarke Duncan

Michael Clarke Duncan was incandescent as John Coffey, the falsely accused gentle giant in The Green Mile. Moreover, the power of that performance, and of many of those that followed, perhaps makes it all the more surprising that the actor’s death went by relatively under the radar. In 2012 Duncan sadly passed away in hospital, a few weeks after a heart attack, aged 54.
