Movie actor Patrick Wayne Swayze was more than just a good-looking person. The American actor, dancer, and singer-songwriter, who possessed several talents, left a lasting influence on the entertainment industry with his distinctive primary parts that ranged from gritty to hilarious to romantic.  He was born in, 1952.


He followed several passions, including ice dancing, classical ballet, acting in school plays, and even football before a knee injury altered his path. His “self-deprecating rage” was expressed in martial arts, encompassing Aikido, Taekwondo, and Wushu among other schools. To improve his dance skills at the Joffrey Ballet and Harkness Ballet schools, he moved to New York City in 1972.

Swayze’s career began when he was hired as a dancer for the Disney Theatrical Group, which was his first professional gig. His major break came when he signed on to play Danny Zuko in the widely-seen Broadway production of “Grease”. He debuted in a movie called “Skatetown, U.S.A.” in 1979.

Swayze’s career took a drastic shift in the 1980s after he was cast in successful movies such as “The Outsiders” (1983) and “Red Dawn” (1984). But it was the 1987 smash song “Dirty Dancing” that shot him to stardom throughout the globe. Swayze performed in the movie as resort dance teacher Johnny Castle, showcasing both his acting and dancing talents. The movie achieved remarkable success, being the first to sell one million copies on video.

After starring in action-packed roles in films like “Point Break” (1991) and “Road House” (1989), Swayze’s career surged. With the romantic thriller “Ghost” (1990), he cemented his status as a leading man even further. His on-screen chemistry with Demi Moore particularly during the iconic pottery wheel sequence earned him a nomination for a second Golden Globe.

Swayze played a hilarious drag queen in the 1995 film “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar,” in which he costarred alongside Wesley Snipes and John Leguizamo.

In “Donnie Darko,” a daring part he took on in 2001, he showed off his range as an actor. Despite injuries incurred during the HBO filming of “Letters from a Killer” in 1997, Swayze made a remarkable comeback with the release of “Forever Lulu” in 2000.

Swayze played a more significant role than an actor. Working with his real-life wife Lisa Niemi, he co-produced and appeared in the 2003 dance film “One Last Dance,” which was a work of fiction.

His career took a sharp turn in 2006 as he made his theatrical debut in “Guys and Dolls” on London’s West End. Along with his roles in “Powder Blue” (2009) and “The Fox and the Hound 2” (2006), Swayze also voiced Cash.
