James Dean is a name that everyone is familiar with. You hear his name getting mentioned in movies, songs or even in commercials. He is a very iconic actor that has been engrained into our culture. James Dean is best known for playing the role of Jim Stark in the movie Rebel Without a Cause in 1955. Soon after he starred in two other movies: East of Eden during the same year and then Giant the year after. These three movies became the defining trilogy of his career because not long after these, he met a car crash that took his life at the age of 24.
His death only seemed to fuel his icon status even more, making him the only actor who has received two Academy Award nominations posthumous.
