❤ James Dean was born on February 8, 1931, in Marion, Indiana. He starred in the film adaptation of the John Steinbeck novel East of Eden, for which he received an Oscar nomination. His next starring role, in Rebel Without a Cause, made him into the embodiment of his generation. Shortly after completing work on the film Giant, Dean was killed in a car crash at 24 yrs old. ❤ Favorite James Dean Quote- Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today ❤
