Patrick Swayze, star of Ghost and Dirty Dancing, dies
The actor, who is most famous for his lead roles in Ghost and Dirty Dancing, died with his family by his side yesterday (September 14th) after battling the disease for nearly two years, according to Annett Wolf.
Swayze had been filming scenes for the hit US TV series The Beast and was planning to write a memoir with his wife shortly before he passed away.
His Dirty Dancing co-star Jennifer Gray led tributes to him, saying: "He was fearless and insisted on always doing his own stunts, so it was not surprising to me that the war he waged on his cancer was so courageous and dignified."
During his career, Swayze was nominated for four Golden Globes, including one for his role in 1995's To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar.
