Jennifer Saunders (1958 - )
Adrian Edmondson
The Young Ones: Time (1984) [Helen Mucus]: Crushed to death when a medieval knight suddenly bursts in, causing the door to fall on her. (Played for comic effect, obviously.)

French & Saunders: The Exorcist (1990) [Assorted Characters]: Commits suicide by jumping out of the window during an exorcism, in a parody of Jason Miller's death in The Exorcist. We only see her going out the window; neither the fall nor the body is shown. (This episode is available on the compilation video Gentlemen Prefer French & Saunders.)

French & Saunders: Thelma & Louise (1993) [Louise]: Commits suicide by driving her car over the edge of a cliff, in a parody of Susan Sarandon's death in Thelma & Louise. Unlike the original, Jennifer discovers that Dawn French (parodying Geena Davis' role) has jumped to safety at the last second. The scene ends with a freeze-frame of the car falling through the air, while Dawn waves goodbye from the top of the cliff. (This episode is available on the compilation video French & Saunders at the Movies.)

French & Saunders: The Phantom Millennium (1999) [Porq-Dim Summ]: Stabbed in the stomach with a lightsaber by a "Darth Maul" look-alike, in a parody of Liam Neeson's death in Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace. She dies in Dawn French's arms shortly afterwards. (Jennifer is made up to look like Liam Neeson, complete with false beard.) (This episode is available on the US DVD of French & Saunders at the Movies, but not on the VHS version.)

French & Saunders: French & Saunders Actually (2003) [Jennifer Saunders]: Dismembered with a chainsaw (along with Dawn French) by Felicity Kendal, after Dawn and Jennifer do a parody of Felicity's TV series Rosemary & Thyme. Various body parts are shown flying through the air. (Played for comic effect.) (This episode is available on the US DVD French & Saunders: Back with a Vengeance.)

Shrek 2 (2004; animated) [Fairy Godmother]: Disintegrated into a cloud of bubbles when her spell ricochets off of the King's (John Cleese's) armor. (Thanks to Marc)

Coraline (2009; animated) [Miss Spink/The Other Miss Spink]: Playing a dual role in the two realms, "The Other Miss Spink" ceases to exist after Coraline (voiced by Dakota Fanning) frees the trapped spirits. (Thanks to Tommy)
