Patrick Wayne Swayze was more than simply a handsome movie star.  He was born on August 18, 1952. With his unique main roles ranging from romantic to gritty to funny, the multi-talented American actor, dancer, and singer-songwriter made a lasting impression on the entertainment business. Sadly he passed away on September 14, 2009.

Early Life

Swayze was raised in an artistically inclined home, with his father, an engineering draftsman named Jesse Wayne Swayze, and his mother, a dancer and choreographer, Patsy Swayze, having a strong artistic impact. Swayze, who was raised in Houston, Texas, showed an early love of the arts and sports.

Before a knee injury changed his course, he pursued a variety of interests including ice skating, classical ballet, acting in school plays, and even football. His “self-deprecating rage” found expression in martial arts, which included styles like Wushu, Taekwondo, and Aikido. He relocated to New York City in 1972 to hone his dancing abilities at the Joffrey Ballet and Harkness Ballet schools.


Swayze’s first professional job was as a dancer with the Disney Theatrical Group, which marked the beginning of his rise to fame. When he joined the popular Broadway version of “Grease” as Danny Zuko, he had his big break. 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.

Swayze’s career took off when he starred in action-packed parts in movies like “Point Break” (1991) and “Road House” (1989). He established himself as a leading guy even further with the romantic thriller “Ghost” (1990). He was nominated for another Golden Globe because of his on-screen chemistry with Demi Moore, especially in the well-known pottery wheel sequence.

In “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar,” which he co-starred in 1995 with Wesley Snipes and John Leguizamo, Swayze had a humorous turn as a drag queen.

He demonstrated his range as an actor in “Donnie Darko,” a bold role he took on in 2001. Despite injuries sustained during the 1997 HBO production of “Letters from a Killer,” Swayze rebounded admirably with the 2000 release of “Forever Lulu.”

Swayze was more involved than just an actor. He worked with his real-life wife, Lisa Niemi, on the fictitious dance film “One Last Dance,” which he co-produced and performed in 2003.

After making his stage debut in “Guys and Dolls” in London’s West End in 2006, his career took a dramatic change. Swayze also appeared in “Powder Blue” (2009) and provided the voice of Cash in “The Fox and the Hound 2” (2006).

Who are Patrick Swayze’s Children?

Patrick Swayze did not have a child with his wife Lisa Niemi. However, he had a son from his relationship with Bonnie Kay. His son’s name is Jason Whittle.
