Some actors have had more opportunity to perfect their grimacing death face than others, and despite the fact that he has been decapitated in Game of Thrones, chucked off a satellite in Goldeneye and torn into quarters by galloping horses in Black Death, Sean Bean isn't actually the most likely person to bite the dust according to the numbers.

Vocative have taken the time to do a lengthly post-mortem on the multiple and varied demises of Hollywood heavyweights and the most unlucky dude in Hollywood might just surprise you.

In order to take into consideration the length of an actors career, the most likely to die has been calculated in percentages to avoid skewing the numbers. For example, vintage horror actor Vincent Price has died 42 times on-screen, but that is a speck in the ocean considering he appeared in 199 movies.

So, read on to find out who has been disproportionately touched by death, but beware there are SPOILERS ahead. You have been warned!
