Patrick Wayne was an American actor, dancer and singer-songwriter. He was best-known for his roles as romantic leading men in the films Dirty Dancing and Ghost and as Orry Main in the North and South television miniseries. He was named by People magazine as its "Sexiest Man Alive" in 1991. Diagnosed with Stage IV pancreatic cancer in January 2008, Swayze told Barbara Walters a year later that he was "kicking it". However, he died from the disease on September 14, 2009. His last role was the lead in an ill-fated A&E TV series, The Beast, which premiered on January 15, 2009. Due to a prolonged decline in health, Swayze was unable to promote the series. On June 15, 2009, Entertainment Tonight announced that the show has been canceled.
Born August 18, 1952, his primary personality traits are represented by the Chinese Zodiac elemental animal sign, the Water Dragon. Water won't put out the Dragon's fire, but this is definitely a more tolerant, more easy going Dragon. You may, however, be less likely to complete all those big projects you start. For a Dragon you are introspective and thoughtful and can excel at the arts, writing and, or, philosophy.
