10 Actors Who Di*d in the Middle of Filming

10. John Ritter

On September 11th, 2003, John Ritter collapsed while on set of 8 Simple Rules for Dating my Teenage Daughter. While working on the ABC TV series, he became ill and eventually collapsed. After arriving at the hospital, it was discovered that he had a tear in his aorta. Keep in mind that this is a rare medical condition that can occur without warning. Unfortunately, he died that same evening, despite being under medical supervision. The show ended up being called “8 Simple Rules”, and continued for one more season with James Garner and David Spade as replacements. This just goes to show that even multi-millionaire actors aren’t invincible.
