The history of the world was marked with one of the great nautical accidents in history, the sinking of the titanic in April 1912, and it was not until 1997 when what happened was taken to the cinema, making it one of the highest grossing films in the industry starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, but what many wonder is if the main roles of the plot existed or not and here we tell you the story.
Without a doubt, the talent of James Cameron as a director and the commitment to talent led the film to obtain a total of 91 awards and 49 nominations, among which stand out: eleven Academy Awards, four Golden Globes, eight Satellite Awards, two People’s Choice Awards, two MTV Movie, a SAG Recognition, and an Annie Award Below is a list of the awards and nominations the film garnered at the Oscars, BAFTAs, and Golden Globes.
And it is that the film is considered one of the great jewels of cinema, because 25 years after its premiere, fans have been amazed with the love of ‘Jack’ and ‘Rose’, two young people from different social classes who fall in love after embarking on the huge ship that would take them to the other side of the world, without imagining that a tragedy would interfere with their plans.
It is worth mentioning that the protagonists were quite young and were still beginning their career as actors, so the critics were not very supportive of their success, but the American and British broke all possible barriers and are currently one of the most beloved celebrities in the industry, but everyone wonders about the love story that is reflected in the film and if it existed or not, here we tell you.
The story behind Rose and Jack from Titanic
Being a story that was taken to the seventh art, the typical ‘fairy tale’ had to be given for it to engage and sensitize the public, so we regret to tell you that in real life the characters never existed, much less the romance of two teenagers who are separated by the sinking of the luxurious cruise, because everything was an invention of cameron and the bet worked out for him.
On the side of the character played by Winslet, it was an inspiration with the artist Beatrice Wood by the director to create a character that has nothing to do with the ship, and he himself cameron He recounted that he was reading the singer’s autobiography during the development of the production and ended up capturing aspects such as, for example, the woman’s love for art or her wealthy family.
While on the side of the role played by DiCaprio, Jack. did find the name of a passenger on the boatJ. Dawson, some initials that many related to the protagonist as Jack Dawson; however, the initial corresponded to Joseph and his story was totally different from the character. It is important to add that not all the characters are part of a fiction, because some of them did exist in real life and we will present them here:
- The owners of Macy’s, Isidor and Ida Straus, who decided to remain on the ship to give their places on the boat to women and children
- the aristocrat Margaret Brownbetter known as Molly, who gave life in Titanic the actress kathy bates
- The founder of the shipping company White Star Line, J. Bruce Ismay, whom he played Jonathan Hyde
- The first mate of the cruise William Murdochwho despite the fact that in the film he commits suicide, in reality it is not known how he died
- Captain Edward John Smith
- The architect of the Titanic thomas andrews
