Mylene Farmer in 'Tristana'
Mylene Farmer (1961 - )
"Libertine" (1986) (music video): Shot by a group of soldiers while she's riding on horseback with her lover, in an ambush arranged by Sophie Tellier. (The 1989 sequel video, "Pourvu qu'elles soient douces", revealed that Mylene was only wounded, but it seems clear that the original video intended this as a death scene.)

"Tristana" (1987) (music video): Killed (off-screen) by Sophie Tellier, method unclear (although Sophie holds out a poisoned apple as in the traditional Snow White story, we then see blood splashing against the wall). Her body is shown afterwards when Vladimir Ivtcenko enters the cabin and finds the dwarves gathered around her; Vladimir then picks her up and carries her out across the field.

"L'Ame-stram-gram" (1999) (music video): Playing a dual role as twin sisters, one sister falls to her death down a staircase after being injured in a battle with bandits; she appears as a spirit afterwards to rescue her sister. The second sister commits suicide by jumping from the Great Wall of China to join her sister. They both appear as spirits at the end of the video.
