Actor and dancer Dennis Stewart's career looked to be on the up when, after playing a dancer in the 1978 Beatles-inspired film Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, he landed the role of Leo, aka 'Craterface', leader of rival gang The Scorpions in Grease. He also was cast in Grease 2, the widely-panned sequel starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Maxwell Caulfield. But 12 years later the actor and dancer contracted HIV and Dennis eventually died of complications from AIDS in April 1994.

best_know_for: Constance, along with her sisters Natalie and Norma, was the youngest of the trio of sisters who took Hollywood by storm in the early days of cinema, and made their family name, Talmadge, one of dynasty proportions in the town of stars. Constance (Connie to her friends) was a silent screen legend who drifted towards comedic roles but stopped acting once talkies made it to the screen. Sadly few of her films survive today and she died a recluse succumbing to alcohol and substance abuse.
