#10285 Keanu-Reeves
Keanu-Reeves - Keanu Reeves, whose first name means cool breeze over the mountains in Hawaiian, was born in Beirut, Lebanon on September 2, 1964. He is the son of English-born Patricia Taylor, a showgirl, and American-born Samuel Nowlin Reeves, a geologist. Keanus father was born in Hawaii, of British, Portuguese, Native Hawaiian, and Chinese ancestry. After their marriage dissolved, Keanu moved with his mother and younger sister, Kim Reeves, to New York City, then Toronto. Stepfather #1 was Paul Aaron, a stage and film director - he and Patricia divorced within a year, after which she went on to marry (and divorce) rock promoter Robert Miller and hair salon owner Jack Bond. Reeves never reconnected with his biological father. In high school, Reeves was lukewarm toward academics but took a keen interest in ice hockey (as team goalie, he earned the nickname The Wall) and drama. He eventually dropped out of school to pursue an acting career.After a few stage gigs and a handful of made-for-TV movies, he scored a supporting role in the Rob Lowe hockey flick Youngblood (1986), which was filmed in Canada. Shortly after the production wrapped, Reeves packed his bags and headed for Hollywood. Reeves popped up on critics radar with his performance in the dark adolescent drama, Brzeg rzeki (1986), and landed a supporting role in the Oscar-nominated Niebezpieczne zwiazki (1988) with director Stephen Frears.His first popular success was the role of totally rad dude Ted Logan in Fantastyczne przygody Billa i Teda (1989). The wacky time-travel movie became something of a cultural phenomenon, and audiences would forever confuse Reevess real-life persona with that of his doofy on-screen counterpart. He then joined the casts of Ron Howards comedy, Spokojnie, tatusku (1989), and Lawrence Kasdans Kocham cie na zabój (1990).Over the next few years, Reeves tried to shake the Ted stigma with a series of highbrow projects. He played a slumming rich boy opposite River Phoenixs narcoleptic male hustler in Moje wlasne Idaho (1991), an unlucky lawyer who stumbles into the vampires lair in Dracula (1992), and Shakespearean party-pooper Don John in Wiele halasu o nic (1993).In 1994, the understated actor became a big-budget action star with the release of Speed - niebezpieczna predkosc (1994). Its success heralded an era of five years in which Reeves would alternate between small films, like Feeling Minnesota (1996) and The Last Time I Committed Suicide (1997), and big films like Spacer w chmurach (1995) and Adwokat diabla (1997). (There were a couple misfires, too: Johnny Mnemonic (1995) and Reakcja lancuchowa (1996).) After all this, Reeves did the unthinkable and passed on the Speed sequel, but he struck box-office gold again a few years later with the Wachowski siblings cyberadventure, Matrix (1999).Now a bonafide box-office star, Keanu would appear in a string of smaller films -- among them Sezon rezerwowych (2000), Obserwator (2000), Dotyk przeznaczenia (2000), Slodki listopad (2001), and Krótka pilka (2001) - before Matrix reaktywacja (2003) and Matrix rewolucje (2003) were both released in 2003.Since the end of The Matrix trilogy, Keanu has divided his time between mainstream and indie fare, landing hits with Lepiej pózno niz pózniej (2003), Dom nad jeziorem (2006), and Królowie ulicy (2008). Hes kept Matrix fans satiated with films such as Constantine (2005), Przez ciemne zwierciadlo (2006), and Dzien, w którym zatrzymala sie Ziemia (2008). And hes waded back into art-house territory with Ellie Parker (2005), Rodzinka (2005), Prywatne zycie Pippy Lee (2009), and Henrys Crime (2010).Most recently, as post-production on the samurai epic 47 roninów (2013) waged on, Keanu appeared in front of the camera in Side by Side (2012), a documentary on celluloid and digital filmmaking, which he also produced. Hes also directing another Asian-influenced project, Czlowiek Tai Chi (2013)..

#10382 Linda-Blair
Linda-Blair - From the age of five, Linda Blair had to get used to the spotlight, first as a child model and then as an actress, when out of 600 applicants she was picked for the role of Regan, the possessed child, in Egzorcysta (1973). Linda quickly rose to international fame, won the Golden Globe, and seemed to be set to take the Academy Award for that role, but when it leaked how some parts of the role were not performed by her (the demonic voice was dubbed by Mercedes McCambridge, and eight seconds of a stunt dummy were used) that dream broke, and with that disappointment probably came the first blow to what looked like the beginning of an A-list career.Over the next few years she had no trouble securing lead roles in a number of pictures, including the highly successful television films Born Innocent (1974) (the #1 TV movie of that year) and Sarah T. - Portrait of a Teenage Alcoholic (1975), as well as the Exorcist sequel Egzorcysta II: Heretyk (1977). However, when she was peer pressured into buying cocaine at the age of 18, it led to an arrest and subsequent sentencing to three years probation. The much-publicized drug bust caused Linda to be blacklisted in Hollywood, and her career was soon reduced to B-movies and occasional TV guest appearances only.Although her career never returned to its former glory, Linda proved to be a good sport about embracing the change, and out of the 80s emerged lead roles in two cult classics: the women-in-prison film Slodkie anioly (1983) and the femme fatale vigilante action film Dzikie ulice (1984). She continued acting in numerous films throughout the 80s and 90s, including the Exorcist spoof Egzorcysta 2½ (1990). In 1997, she also took to the Broadway stage and starred as Rizzo in the revival of Grease. She received widespread mainstream attention again in the 2000s with the theatrical re-release of the Exorcist, followed by a hosting job on the hit Fox Family TV series Scariest Places on Earth (2000), which ran for six years and followed Linda as she visited notorious haunted locations around the world.Linda was born in St. Louis, Missouri, to Elinore, a real estate agent, and James, an executive headhunter. She has a brother, Jimmy, and a sister, Debbie. Linda has been a Hollywood icon for over 40 years, but it is her first love of animals that has ultimately taken center stage in her life. She now runs the Linda Blair WorldHeart Foundation, a non-profit 501C3 tax deductible organization dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating abused, neglected, and abandoned animals from the harsh streets of the Los Angeles area, as well as from the overcrowded and overwhelmed city and county animal shelters. She works and lives on the 2-acre rescue sanctuary full-time in California, which was featured on The Today Show in a segment titled From Devil to Angel. Of course, she also makes frequent appearances at horror fan conventions to celebrate the legacy of the Exorcist..
