49. Glenn Quinn
Roseanne actor Glenn Quinn’s battle with addiction ended tragically in 2002 when he passed away as a result of a heroin overdose at only 32 years of age. His story is a desperately sad one about the dangers of drugs: by the end of his life he had been fired from his role as Doyle in Angel and needed to resort to sleeping on a friend’s couch.

48. Nicole DeHuff
Nicole DeHuff’s acting career got off to a good start when she played Deborah Byrnes in 2000’s smash hit movie Meet the Parents. Sadly, though, the promise shown in that performance and DeHuff’s ensuing string of other minor film and TV roles never saw her make it to the top, as by 2005 the 30-year-old had passed away following a bout of viral pneumonia. At least her character apparently lives on in the Meet the Parents sequels, where Deborah is still alluded to although never seen.
