However, the family never went to lifeboats and later tragically died in their cabin.

Reese now works as a digital marketing director at Brian Head Resort, a skiing resort in Utah.

After winning the competition, she started as a child model when she signed with a talent agent.

Agent Reese gave his mother the option of acting in a petrol commercial or playing a minor role on the Titanic.

Speaking of Business InsiderShe said: ‘My mother said: “Let’s do it. It’s cool. Even though the movie sucks, we watch it.” Obviously, it ended up exploding, so it wasn’t a bad decision on her part, that’s for sure.

This is a good decision as the former actor still receives royalty checks for his appearance in Blockbuster.

He said: ‘It’s strange because it’s not in my mind anymore. “Oh, when am I going to get a new ‘Titanic’ check?” When that happens, it’s like, ‘Oh, cool, extra $ 100.’

‘A couple of times: “Oh, wow, that’s a $ 250 check.” The film was 12 years old. That’s pretty strange. But hopefully, they play it a lot because it makes me more money.

After the release of the film, Reese was originally paid about $ 30,000 for his role, the money was safely placed in the account and used for his education, car and living expenses.

The remuneration is far from the $ 2 million reportedly paid to star Kate Winslet for the film, and $ 2.5 million for Leonardo DiCaprio.

In the years immediately after the film’s release, in 1998 and 1999, when the VHS and DVD versions of the film were released respectively, their royalty checks were spiked with “fewer thousands,” he explained.

After the Blu-ray release in 2012, the film was later re-released on DVD in 2005, although Reese said that Titanic’s 2012 3D re-release did not receive much fanfare.

According to Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists WebsiteVideo / DVD, original cable and free or paid television, or new media. ‘

Titanic was released in 1997 and stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet in the lead roles.

It was the first film to win 11 Oscars and grossed over $ 1 billion at the box office, and remained the highest grossing film of all time until Avatar in 2010.

After the 2012 re-release to mark the 100th anniversary of the disaster, the film’s box office climbed to $ 2 billion.
