Was he using a stage prop?
Was he an actor?
did he think the gun was empty?

he is an actor and in the play he has to shoot himself in the head and die. He continues to do this in one play after another then one time he hears a balloon pop or some other loud bang and thinks he actually shot himself, but dies from a heart attack?

When you say he "fires" the gun, does it actually go off?
Is the gun a firearm?
Did he die from shock, a heart attack, hypnotic self-suggestion or something like that?

The clue confusing me is you said he dies from doing so but then you answered no to did he die from being shot with the gun.

did he die instantly after firing the gun?

So far my theory is... he shot the gun, perhaps messing around knowing (thinking) it was empty, but inside the chamber and thus released by firing was some king of toxic fume that he eventually died from inhaling / some kind of small pellet that didn't in itself cause major damage, but broke the skin and introduced a toxic substance into the body, thus eventually killing him.
