People killed in films or on TV die in real life.This section contains beliefs all on a common theme: People killed in films or on TV die in real life..
When I was a boy I used to believe that actors who die in the movie were really dead but one time I watched another movie, and I saw him again and he played different story.
I used to believe that when someone died in a movie they really died. So after I saw Titanic I was completely dumbfounded when I saw Leonardo on tv again!
I used to believe if someone was killed in a movie then that meant they were killed in real life too. I thought actors accepted roles voluntarily and knew that they would be killed and wanted to die for whatever reason. It wasn't until my mom and I were watching a movie together and I asked why a particular character wanted to die that she figured out what I had thought was going on and corrected me.
When I was a child, I used to believe that the actors really died in a series or film. I spent a long time thinking about that because I was feeling so sad. Then when I saw a movie where the same actors I was very impressed because I didn't believe that they were alive...That really scared me!
when i was a child, i used to believe actors really died in films so i said to my father "that soon there would not be films any more " because no one would want to become actors. My father answered "maybe one day, but not now".
When I was 3 or 4 my older sister told me that actors volunteered to be killed in a movie during a murder scene.
As a child I believed that if a character died in a film so did the actor playing them, though I knew that they were only actors. I asked my dad why film makers didn't just use criminals to play baddies as it wouldn't matter so much when they died. He was totally bemused. I just though it was part of the job if you were unlucky enough to get the role of a baddy.
I used to believe that when people died in movies and on tv they actually died in real life...that's why I was so sad at the end of titanic...
I used to think when they showed someone dying on TV (falling from a building, fire, etc) that the filmmakers had to get prisoners who were going to die anyway so they could get their shot.
When I was little I believed when an actor died in a movie, he died in real life.
When I was 6, I used to believe that each time we saw a character dying in a movie, the actor representing him was proudly giving his real life for the sake of the movie.
when i was about 6, i was convinced that when a movie was made where people get shot, they would ask people who wanted to kill themselves to do the job.
I used to belive that people really died in TV shows. I'd wait for Lassie to go for Timmy's throat after the barn burned down. But Jonathon Prost grew up to be a has been. I'm glad I was wrong!
That when someone died in a movie they died for real.
Also when it showed the persons life in stages that they used the same person through out the whole film. Like when there and then they had to wait till they grew up to do the scenes for when there older.
I used to think that when they killed someone in the movies they would get a stunt double that looked identical to the actor, and then kill him (for real).
When I was young, I thought that when a person in a movie died, they really died. I remember thinking that they must have paid them A LOT of money to kill themselves for a movie.
One day my sister and I were watching a movie with my aunt where an entire singing group died. I think it was that same day or soon after where we saw the group perform live at a concert. I started freaking out because in my mind they had all died and I believed that their ghosts were performing. It took my aunt a while to get me to believe the whole actor/fake death explanation.
When i was about 5-6 I used to believe that people that were killed in movies and such actually got killed for real - but I didn't feel that sorry for them because I was convinced that it had to be really mean people already in for death row that got punished and that they deserved it.
when i was 12 i was in love with Elvis. i saw a movie where he dies. I cried for hours, cause i thought he was really dead. i would not belive my mom when she said it was just a movie and he was alive
I used to believe that if an actor died in a movie, that they would die in real life--thus, they would have to say good-bye to their families and friends before they did the movie.
Course, I was also five/six at the time!
