James Dean was a promising young actor aged 23 years of age; he died in a car crash in 1955. However, Alec Guinness a famous actor explained in a BBC interview in 1977 that he was talking to James Dean, whom he only met once, as he was showing off his new car, and saying that it could reach 150 mph. Guinness said later that something weird came over him and he told James Dean “please do not get in that car, if you do by 10 o’clock next Thursday night, you will be dead”. So, he predicted the actual date that he would die which was September 30th, 1955.
