I used to believe that the movies were real and that people who died in those movies actually died. Which is why I thought actors were very highly paid.

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.

I used to think actors in movies sometimes had to actually die to make the movies look real.

When I was little I used to watch old western movies with my grandpa. There was alot of shooting involved and in the movie the actor dies. But when I was little I didn't know it was all fake. I thought people that just wanted to die figured hey, might as well come out in a movie and be famous.

When I was about 4 or 5, I used to think that when people were killed in movies that the actors really died. I thought that real-life people who just didn't want to live anymore volunteered to play the parts in movies where people were killed. I just couldn't figure out that it was "pretend blood" or a "fake gun."

I used to believe that people who got killed in movies really died and that the directors etc had to find sufficient people to be killed in their movie!

I used to believe that in movies like star wars, when a character died, they were murdering the actors.

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!

When I was about 3 I used to think that all films were real and events in a film were actually happening in real life as I watched them. Apparently I would cry for hours when someone died, and my parents would never know why - until I told them a year or so later.

I believed that when you were watching TV or a film and someone died that the makers of the film would go out and look for people who didn't want to be alive anymore and actually kill them on film. Horrific!

I used to believe all the people that got killed in movies were prisoners sentenced to death, and that's why it was so realistic, because they were using real people, not stuntmen.

When my mom watched movies when she was little, she thought the people getting shot in the movies were really criminals sentenced to the death sentence, so they would just shoot them on screen.

Thiz is probably really weird, but I always thought that when people died in the movies that they REALLY died. I thought they hired actors that were willing to die. I never understood why anyone would of done that.

I used to puzzle over how they got people to agree to die on films and TV programmes. I worked out that the producers must have the contacts for all terminally ill people in the world and would phone them up to persuade them that as they were going to die anyway, it would be better if they did so on a film and earnt money to leave to their family. I never did work out how they got people just to be injured and mutilated! I remember seeing a two-parter of Batman when Robin was stuck in a giant clam till the next episode a week later. Obviously he had a luxury apartment inside the clam for the rest of the week.

I saw 'gorillas in the mist' when i was just little, at then end when the lady dies it says something about it being a true story, i thought that the main actress had worn the real persons skin and pretended to be her, but i was confused because how could they be allowed to kill her again??

i used to think that everyone who died in a film was a volunteer. This was shattered when a comic - probably the 'Eagle' - printed a feature on how film stunts worked!!
