#11 The Final Scene: Gareth Jones (1958)

Gareth Jones was a British actor who suffered a fatal heart attack, off-camera, in between the scenes of the live-shot television play, Underground.

The director of the play, Ted Kotcheff, and other cast members resolved to improvise lines, to make up for Jones’s absence, and more importantly, carry the play to its conclusion.

Ironically, Jones’s character was scripted to die of a heart attack in a later scene of the same play.
