10 Actors Who Asked To Be Killed Off Their Shows


Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey)

Actor Dan Stevens played Matthew Crawley on the British television drama series Downton Abbey, although when season three was about to finish, Stevens decided to take a crucial turn in his career and try out his talents in theatre work, literature and, of course, movies. Long story short, the character Crawley died in a car accident. “From a personal point of view, I wanted a chance to do other things. It is a very monopolizing job. So there is a strange sense of liberation at the same time as great sadness because I am very, very fond of the show and always will be,” Dan Stevens said.
