Melina Mercouri (1925 - 1994)
Mrs. Jules Dassin
Former Greek Minister of Culture
Stella (1955) [Stella]: Stabbed in the back by George Foundas in the town square, after she walks up to him despite his warnings that he's going to kill her. (Thanks to Elina)

The Gypsy and the Gentleman (1958) [Belle]: Drowned in a river by Keith Mitchell, who also drowns during the struggle. (Thanks to Gordon)

Promise at Dawn (1970) [Nina Kacew]: Dies of a terminal illness. It's been so long since I've seen this movie, I can't recall whether she had an on-screen death scene, if her body was shown, or if we were merely informed of her death afterwards.
