There is allegedly an actor in India called Ashish Vidyarthi that has died 182 times in movie. He was not included because he is not part of the 5000 Top Actors.

Danny Trejo and Christopher Lee played in so many titles not surprising that they crush everyone in the number of deaths.

Good idea and great title. : )

May I suggest two edits? (1. a semi-colon instead of a comma and 2. period inside quotation marks)

These are the 25 actors that died the most often in movies; they are also referred to as the "Dying League."

Thanks! Oh, and if this goes live before you see this post, you could always do the edits in a re-push if you want to.

Yes, https://cinemorgue.fandom.com/wiki/Cinemorgue_Wiki

It is a wiki about deaths in the movie, I could send several links to news articles like this one: https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/what-actor-has-the-most-on-screen-deaths

But in the end, all those articles use the same source, so I went straight to the original source to make my poll.

In that case, you could also mention the site in the intro text.

I hesitate fandom is not generally perceived as a reliable source by the internet community. When talking about fandom wikis, the quality really depends on the commitment of his founders and administrators.
