You know what sucks? Watching a movie or TV show when you already know a major plot point that was supposed to be a secret. You can blame a fair number of day-ruining reveals on actors who spoiled their character deaths, but then, can you really blame the actor? Between talk shows, press tours, and social media, it's a shock any movie or show manages to keep a lid on spoilers. Especially when every interviewer and question seem intent on peeling away any and all mystery that an upcoming release may hold. Perhaps the real surprise is that there aren't more actors who ruined their character's death.

On top of the press blitzes, you've got the Sherlock Holmes-level of sleuthing that occurs online to analyze the slightest of details in interviews, trailers, publicity stills, and set photos no one was supposed to see before a movie came out. To be fair, most actors who spoil death scenes aren't doing so by revealing clues some obsessive blogger decodes; they just kind of spill the beans without really being prompted. But it's gotta be tiring to do multiple interviews every day for weeks or months, while traveling around the world. Something's bound to slip out at some point. Actors who spoiled their deaths need empathy more than ire.
