Bill Paxton was born on May 17, 1955 in Fort Worth, Texas. He was the son of Mary Lou (Gray) and John Lane Paxton, a businessman and actor (as John Paxton). Bill moved to Los Angeles, California at age eighteen, where he found work in the film industry as a set dresser for Roger Corman's New World Pictures. He made his film debut in the Corman film Bad Blues Girls (1975), directed by Jonathan Demme. Moving to New York, Paxton studied acting under Stella Adler at New York University. After landing a small role in Bombázók a seregnek (1981), he found steady work in low-budget films and television. He also directed, wrote and produced award-winning short films including Barnes & Barnes: Fish Heads (1980), which aired on Saturday Night Live (1975). His first appearance in a James Cameron film was a small role in Terminátor - A halálosztó (1984), followed by his very memorable performance as Private Hudson in A bolygó neve: Halál (1986) and as the nomadic vampire Severen in Kathryn Bigelow's Alkonytájt (1987). Bill also appeared in John Hughes' Különös kísérlet (1985), as Wyatt Donnelly's sadistic older brother Chet. Although he continued to work steadily in film and television, his big break did not come until his lead role in the critically acclaimed film-noir Egy rossz lépés (1992). This quickly led to strong supporting roles as Wyatt Earp's naive younger brother Morgan in Tombstone - Halott város (1993) and as Fred Haise, one of the three astronauts, in Apollo-13 (1995), as well as in James Cameron's offering True Lies - Két tűz között (1994).Bill died on February 25, 2017, in Los Angeles, from complications following heart surgery. He was 61. - IMDb Mini Biography By: Leslie Walter <leslie@snoopy.usask.ca>
