Titanic:Movies and Stories

Sabina Antal

What actors/actresses were hired to be in the movie Titanic? What were their roles and where was it filmed?

The main actor was Leonardo Dicaprio and he played Jack Dawson in the movie. Kate Winslet is also in the movie and she plays Rose DeWitt Bukater. The movie was mostly filmed in California and Mexico when they were filming scenes on the ship. When they filmed water scenes, the cast was placed in large water tanks. They filmed the boat sinking scenes in the Northern Atlantic Ocean close to the site of where the Titanic sank.

How many people survived and what did they say when they reached the Carpathia?

About 2,200 people were on board including the crew,but only about 740 people survived. There were 1,500 fatalities because of the sinking. Many people were in shock over what happened. I found an interesting quote which said "My brother, who was my only living relative,went down before my eyes. He scorned to disobey the discipline, so now I'm alone." Many people were upset and talked about their friends,family, and the passengers who were on board the ship.

The youngest passenger aboard was 2 months old.
