Patrick Swayze died of cancer, aged 57. The Washington Post said:
While undergoing chemotherapy for his cancer, which was diagnosed last year, he received good reviews for his gritty portrayal of an undercover FBI agent in “The Beast” (2009), a drama series for the A&E cable network. Mr. Swayze missed only one day of work while filming the series. “One thing I’m not going to do is chase staying alive,” he told interviewer Barbara Walters at the time. “You spend so much time chasing staying alive, you won’t live.”
The final scene of one his movies, Point Break was filmed at Bell’s Beach in Australia in 1991. In that movie, the character he played, Bodhi, faced the waves rather than surrender to the Feds. Now he played the Feds before taking to the waves. Well, Bell’s Beach is still there.
