Emily Hampshire in 'The Life Before This'
Emily Hampshire (1981 - )
Happy Face Murders (1999) [Tracy Billings]: Beaten to death and throat crushed (off-screen) by Rick Peters in a hotel room. Her body is shown lying in a field early in the movie when Marg Helgenberger and Henry Thomas investigate, then again later on in the morgue. The murder itself is shown in a later flashback. (We only see the start of the assault, at which point the movie cuts to Rick telling his story to Marg and Henry; her body is shown lying on the floor when the flashback resumes.) Additionally, another version of her death is shown in a "fictitious flashback" when Ann-Margret falsely confesses to strangling Emily with a rope while Nicholas Campbell beats up Emily. (Nudity alert: Full frontal and rear; however, all scenes involving nudity were actually done by body double Stacey Ziegler.)

The Life Before This (1999) [Margaret]: Shot in the side (off-camera) in the crossfire of a shoot-out between David Hewlett and Joel Keller in a cafe; her body is shown lying behind the counter afterwards. (After this opening scene, the movie "rewinds" to the start of the day, leading up to an alternate outcome; in this second version, Emily gets Sarah Polley to cover her shift, so Sarah dies instead.) (Thanks to Tal)

Legend of Earthsea (2004) [Rose]: Strangled by Jennifer Calvert, who then hangs her body from the ceiling to make it look like suicide. Her body is shown again during her funeral. (Thanks to Stephen)

Snow Cake (2006) [Vivienne]: Killed in a car accident when a truck hits the car she is riding in with Alan Rickman (who survives the accident). (Thanks to Graeme)
