Die Hard Wiki

This is a list of unnamed civilians with spoken lines and/or credited actors seen in the Die Hard film series.

Die Hard[]

Airplane passenger[]

Airline passenger

As John McClane approached LAX, the passenger sitting next to him noticed he was uncomfortable flying. He suggested making fists with his toes on carpet while barefoot after arriving to his destination as a way to cure jetlag saying to trust him, he'd been flying for nine years. He then grew uncomfortable and concerned when he saw McClane had a gun, but McClane explained that he was a cop and to trust him as he had been doing it for eleven years, using the passenger's own words to prove the point in a clever way.

This man ended up being the reason that John was barefoot throughout most of the film, having given him advice with good intentions, only to inadvertently cause McClane much pain and suffering. 

This airport passenger was played by Robert Lesser in "Die Hard."


Stewardess first film

This stewardess was seen briefly, after the flight to Los Angeles landed, passing John as he was moving down the aisle, toward the exit. Their eyes met for a moment while she was eyeballing McClane.

Her original lines were cut from the film but appear in the deleted scenes on home media. Her lines were much more suggestive towards McClane, than was her brief glance in the final version of the film.

This Stewardess was played by Stella Hall in "Die Hard."

Girl at Airport[]

Girl at Airport

This girl blew past McClane at the Los Angeles airport. Running, she screamed and wildly embraced and kissed her boyfriend. She was a blonde and tanned "California Girl." McClane seems somewhat take aback at their public display of affection.

This girl at the airport was played by Terri Lynn Doss in "Die Hard."

Boy at Airport[]

Boy at airport

This Boy was seen embracing his girlfriend after an arrival at the airport in Los Angeles. The girl comes running up to the boy and screams before launching herself at him. During the embrace they kiss. This exchange is McClane's first off of the plane, likely giving him his first impressions of L.A. and California.

This boy at the airport was played by Jon E. Greene in "Die Hard."

Convenience Store Clerk[]

"Thought you guys just ate donuts."
―Convenience Store Clerk [src]
Convenience Store Clerk - Profile

This convenience store clerk was working a late shift at AM PM Mini Mart, when LAPD Sergeant Al Powell was buying some bag loads of Twinkies for his pregnant wife. The clerk commented how Powell must have a love for Twinkies since he is buying so many and states that cops typically stick to donuts. Powell corrects that they are for his wife and tells him to put them in the bag. After that, Powell gives the employee a tip before leaving. Powell then took a car to investigate Nakatomi Plaza because terrorists took over the building.

This convenience store clerk was portrayed by Kip Waldo in "Die Hard."

Girl in Window[]

Girl in Window 3

The girl in the window holds the receiver of the phone to her head with her left hand, while holding the base of the phone to the side with her right.

The girl in the window appears very briefly, through the open sliding door of her balcony, across from Nakatomi Plaza. She is in her underwear and pacing around while talking on a telephone.

Her purpose in the film is a point of some contention. The script appears to imply that the ease and nonchalance with which she is talking on the phone is meant to juxtapose the situation that McClane finds himself in, and in particular his limitations for contacting help.

This girl in the window was portrayed by Michele Laybourn in "Die Hard."


KFLW Producer

This producer was seen very briefly at the KFLW-TV studio as Dick Thornburg and Sam were passing through the control room.

This producer was portrayed by Bill Margolin in "Die Hard."


KFLW Soundman

This soundman was seen with Richard Thornburg and Mary in the background of the KFLW-TV news van.

This soundman was portrayed by David Katz in "Die Hard."

City Engineer[]

City Engineer

The city engineer and Walt were near the circuit boards changing a pipe when at the request of the FBI, wish to have power cut to Nakatomi Plaza. Unfortunately the power could not be cut locally. The city engineer attempts to explain this, telling FBI Special Agent Johnson that it must be done from downtown and that they do not have authorization to do so. The agent retorts that their authorization is "the United States Fucking government."

This city engineer was portrayed by Bill Marcus in "Die Hard."

Die Hard 2[]

Information Booth Girl[]

Information booth girl

This girl was seen working an information booth at Dulles International Airport. McClane asked her where the telephones are and she smiled, directing him to them, saying, "Right over there." She then looks down to a broadcast from WZDC news which leads into a report regarding the extradition of General Esperanza from Escalon Airport in the Republic of Val Verde.

This information booth girl was portrayed by Connie Lillo-Thieman in "Die Hard 2."

Rent-a-Car Girl[]

Rent a car girl

The Rent-A-Car-Girl works at a Budget Car Rental booth at Dulles International Airport. She is seen working at a booth at the airport when John McClane quickly borrows her ink stamp pad before taking off, giving her the wrong impression he is stealing. McClane needed the ink in order to identify Oswald Cochrane and the situation in the luggage area. He is later seen at the booth again with the lady, talking to her as well as faxing the information with Al Powell in Los Angeles. She tries to hit on him, asking him out to dinner, but he shows her his wedding ring before saying "Just the fax, ma'am. Just the fax.", in a classic Dragnet reference.

This Rent-a-Car girl was portrayed by Lauren Letherer in "Die Hard 2."

Northeast Airlines Passenger[]


On the plane, Holly McClane just finished speaking with John McClane through the phone and the old lady sitting next to her had a brief conversation with Holly. She said "Isn't technology wonderful?" Then she began to talk about the advancement of technology and how she no longer needs mace and instead carries a taser for protection. She also explains how she tested it out on her dog and that it limped for a week. Later when the old lady is asleep, Holly borrows her taser to use it against Richard Thornburg to stop a broadcast being transmitted to Dulles International Airport. After John McClane defeated the terrorists, the plane safely lands and the old lady is pursued by Thornburg, who is having a panic attack after the landing. Refusing to help, she calls him an "asshole", then walks away leaving Thornburg in the snow.

This elderly passenger is portrayed by Jeanne Bates in "Die Hard 2."

Connie - Northeast Airlines Stewardess 1[]


Connie was the flight attendant stewardess of Northeast Airlines 140. She was seen in a brief argument with news reporter Richard Thornburg, who was complaining of switching seats in the plane due to Holly McClane's nearby presence. Thornburg had placed a restraining order on her for punching him after he revealed her identity to Hans Gruber at the Nakatomi Plaza. Connie refused, but asked Holly what Thornburg meant when he said he didn't wanna be near her. Holly replied saying he has within 50 feet of distance from her, to which he rephrased her word making it 50 yards; because of Holly's actions, Connie asks if she would like some champagne. During the climax of the film, Thornburg uses the restroom to send a news broadcast to Dulles International Airport, barging through Connie. Fed up of his games, she allowed Holly to enter the restroom to stop his broadcast, which caused a massive panic at the airport. Following John McClane defeating Stuart, Esperanza, and the other terrorists, Connie is last seen helping Holly down from the plane after they safely land.

This stewardess is portrayed by Sherry Bilsing in "Die Hard 2."

This stewardess is portrayed by Karla Tamburrelli in "Die Hard 2."

Northeast Airlines Pilot[]

Northeast Airlines Navigator[]

Northeast Airlines Navigator

This navigator was aboard Northeast Airlines flight 140. He was the first of the aircraft personnel, presumably, to notice that Dulles Tower was using the outer-marker frequency to broadcast a warning message to the planes circling above. It is for this reason that the planes overhead knew of the peril of their situation.

This Navigator was portrayed by Tom Everett in "Die Hard 2."

Windsor Airlines Pilot[]

Windsor Airlines Pilot

This pilot was the primary pilot aboard Windsor Airlines flight 114. Colonel Stuart made good on his threat that Dulles technicians not try to establish contact with any airplanes in flight by detonating the Annex Skywalk, then "punished" them by impersonating Dulles air traffic control, giving Windsor clearance to land. Unknown to the captain or his crew, Stuart's men have tampered with the guidance to change the plane's trajectory to 200 feet below sea level. John McClane desperately attempted to signal the flight by standing on the runway and lighting torches of its true altitude. However, McClane's efforts were too little too late as he was seen very briefly by the pilot. Despite the pilot's attempts to pull up at the last second, the fuel tank collided with the ground and exploded on impact. Windsor 114 was lost.

As part of a tacit agreement between Samantha Coleman and McClane, this chopper pilot helmed the nighttime news helicopter, taxiing McClane and the rest of the WNTW crew towards the Boeing 747 being used as an escape vehicle by Esperanza, Stuart and their band of mercenaries. McClane asked the pilot to get in front of the plane and stop it from taking off. The pilot replied, "I am not playing chicken with a 200 ton plane. I'm crazy man but a I ain't that crazy, forget it." He did however agree to get over top of the plane's wing, allowing McClane to drop onto it and eventually bring the plane down himself.

Not Smiley Bill

This custodian worked at Dulles International Airport for Northeast Airlines. John McClane, who becomes suspicious of Garber, Miller, and Cochrane in the airport lounge, slowly followed them. A custodian was working near the doors of the luggage area that Miller and Cochrane trespassed; he did not see them go in though. As McClane approached the doors, he told the custodian to open the door and get the airport police. He did as he was told and brought the airport cops over to the luggage area.

This custodian is portrayed by Dwayne Hargray in "Die Hard 2."

Highland Lake Community Church Custodian[]


An elderly man worked as a sexton in a small chapel adjacent to Dulles Airport. He likely lived there as well, as he was eating his dinner, watching the news on his TV about the trial of General Ramon Esperanza when the doorbell rang. Two "electricians" stood by and asked if they could come in, and the sexton obliged. This suggests that Colonel Stuart (or his underlings) knew about the sexton's work habits and learned he requisitioned workmen to do repairs. As the electricians randomly inspect the chapel, they made small talk with the sexton, who complained that the once proud chapel has seen better day and how he feels "part of me is dying down with this place." Responding to his words, the electrician Baker shoots him three times in the chest, and Thompson proceeds to call Stuart and the rest of his men with language coded from the movie Our Gang. Already showing deep disrespect to the chapel by murdering its sexton, Stuart's men commit further sacriledge by turning the chapel into their makeshift communications center to hold Dulles Airport and several airplanes in flight hostage.

Because Zeus had a gun, he did not know he was using it for self-defense so he was really frightened. Then again, when he was obeyed to drive with Zeus pointing the gun at the driver, he drove at a fast speed. While driving, the taxi driver heard McClane and Zeus talk until McClane told him to drop them both off at 1 Police Plaza.

This taxi driver is portrayed by Daryl Edwards in "Die Hard with a Vengeance."

Unfortunately, the other phone is out of order. Zeus orders the man to give the phone to him because the other one is broken, but the man told him that he's here first before calling him "bro." Now Zeus is very angry and yells at the man to get out of the telephone until the transit cop orders him to put his hands up in the air for snapping at the man who was about to talk on the telephone and passing through the checkpoint without a subway ticket not realizing he is helping the NYPD to stop the bomb or many people will be killed and is John McClane's partner.

This juvenile thief is portrayed by Patrick Borriello in "Die Hard with a Vengeance."

New York Kid Thief 2[]


Of the two, he is the only one who barely speaks at all. He could be considered the apprentice of the duo as he just stands during the run in and only complains when McClane and Zeus take away their bicycles.

Yuppie Stock Broker[]

Yuppie Stock Broker 2

Yuppie Stock Broker

After John McClane and Zeus Carver arrived at the New York City Water Tunnel No. 3 with truck driver Jerry Parks, McClane went to the foreman and asked if there were any extra dump trucks coming in the last few minutes. The foreman says he's going to write up a few guys up because they tore open the tube and the workers are actually loading in the different area. As McClane was trying to call the police since terrorist Simon Gruber and his men are heading for tunnel 3, he asked the foreman for the map of the tunnel. The foreman shows McClane and Zeus that tunnel 3 ran under the saw mill until they get to the cofferdam. After that, they get the water down to the reservoir. As McClane asked if anybody can get in or out of the tunnel, the foreman says there's a vent shaft every two miles. McClane corrected him that he meant to get out with a truck after he hung the phone when he couldn't get through with the police. The foreman says that he can get a the truck up to the cofferdam and to get there, follow the saw mill parkway about 20 miles away. He was present when McClane tells Zeus to get to Yankee Stadium quickly since they got less then two hours as McClane rode with Jerry to get inside the tunnel. As they we're heading into tunnel 3, the foreman asked McClane as he was entering the tunnel if there was something wrong, but was ignored.
