Patrick Swayze

Have the time of your life dancing with Patrick Swayze's wax figure inspired by his legendary film character, Johnny Castle from "Dirty Dancing."

Did You Know?

  • In high school, Swayze had hopes of going to college on a football scholarship. Only, the night scouts came to check his team out, Patrick got his left leg nearly snapped in half at the knee and it ended his career like that.
  • He almost didn't get the part of Johnny in 'Dirty Dancing' -- and for a few reasons too. According to Moviefone, he was a bit older than the character was supposed to be at 34.
  • He considered the pottery scene in "Ghost" to be one of the sexiest things he's ever filmed.

"My work... is my legacy."
