45. Christopher Pettiet
Cult ’90s comedy Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter’s Dead made a star out of Christopher Pettiet, who played young Lothario Zach Crandell in the movie. Watching it now, though, may be bittersweet, for the actor passed away in 2000, aged just 24, as a result of an accidental substance OD. A scholarship named for Pettiet at his old acting school has helped keep his name and legacy alive since.

44. Lisa Robin Kelly
Anyone who watched That ’70s Show during its first five seasons will recognize Lisa Robin Kelly, who as the manipulative Laurie Forman portrayed a character that fans loved to hate. That said, Kelly’s troubled personal life rather than her talent was to the forefront in many obituaries when she passed away in 2013. The cause of the 43-year-old’s death was ruled as “multiple drug intoxication.”
