Billy Zane Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Feb 24, 1966
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Actor Billy Zane kicked off his stage career in his hometown of Chicago. Able to harness his spoiled-brat countenance and quirky gestures to invoke either sympathy or repulsion, Zane has been seen principally in secondary roles in such films as [[Feature~V3671~Back to the Future~backtothefuture]] (1985), [[Feature~V32162~Memphis Belle~memphisbelle]] (1990), [[Feature~V122084~Orlando~orlando]] (1992), and [[Feature~V38821~Posse~posse]] (1993). His most flamboyant role was as the young drifter who -- obvious to everyone but the hero and heroine -- is not what he seems in the Australian thriller [[Feature~V12688~Dead Calm~deadcalm]] (1989). Zane had a rare starring role in the filmization of the once popular comic strip The Phantom (1996), in which he showed off his lithe, muscular physique in a form-fitting purple body suit and performed many of the stylish film's daring stunts himself. The following year he had a lead role in the most successful film of his career, playing [[Performer~P198332~Kate Winslet~katewinslet]]'s vile fiancé in [[Feature~V158894~Titanic~titanic]]. Zane is the younger brother of film and TV actress [[Performer~P78413~Lisa Zane~lisazane]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
