Who is James Dean?
James Byron Dean, born February 8, 1931, died September 30, 1955, was an American film actor.
Dean's status as a cultural icon is best embodied in the title of his most celebrated film, Rebel Without a Cause, in which he starred as troubled Los Angeles teenager Jim Stark. The other two roles that defined his star were as loner Cal Trask in East of Eden, and as the surly farmer Jett Rink in Giant.
His enduring fame and popularity rests on only these three films, his entire output in a starring role. His death at an early age cemented his legendary status.
