Matlock: The Star (1989) [Catherine McKay]: Stabbed in the chest (off-screen) on a movie set; her body is shown afterwards lying on the bed as the crew films her (thinking that she's just acting dead), they discover that she's really dead when she doesn't get up after they call "Cut!" (Thanks to Greg and Big O)

Melrose Place: Love and Death 101 (1995) [Stella Rivers]: Anita does not actually appear in this episode (as it was filmed after her real-life death), but it's revealed that her character died (off-screen) of unspecified natural causes when her son (Grant Show) gets the news of her death.
