A computer scientist has created a fascinating chart of top 25 deadliest actors of all time by on-screen kills.
In an accompanying blog post, Olson notes a couple of interesting facts:
•Uma Thurman is deadliest woman with 77 on-screen kills.
•150 of Tomisaburo Wakayama's 226 kills came in the film "Lone Wolf and Cub: White Heaven in Hell" (1974). It is considered the highest kill count by any one person in a film.
Olson told BI the body count database took more than five years to build, but some kills may be missing from the list because "some actors have worked in dozens of low-kill-count, B-rated movies" that haven't been cataloged.
Olson added that there is one key omission in the database: John Wayne.
"I'm almost certain he'd be ranked in the 'deadliest actors' chart if some film-watching hero were willing to do the counts on his [pre-1960] films," Olson, who is a PhD student in Michigan State University's Computer Science program, told BI. "That said, it may be best to qualify that these counts cover the period of 1960 and onward."
