IS THE REAL LIFE ROSE FROM TITANIC STILL ALIVE?

The character of Rose DeWitt Bukater in Titanic was a fictional character played by Kate Winslet. Director James Cameron wanted Rose, her mother Ruth, and her fiance Caledon Hockley to be representative of a typical wealthy family in 1912.

There were many characters in the film who were based on real life passengers: Kathy Bates played Molly Brown, Victor Garber played ship designer Thomas Andrews, and Bernard Hill played Captain Smith.

Millvina Dean, the last living survivor of the actual Titanic tragedy, died April 22, 2009.
