Profile Bio Text
River Jude Phoenix (August 23, 1970 – October 31, 1993) was an American film actor and musician. He was listed on John Willis` Screen World, Vol. 38 as one of twelve "promising new actors of 1986", and was hailed as highly talented by such critics as Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel. At the age of 18, he was nominated for an Oscar and a Golden Globe in the category of Best Supporting Actor for his role in the 1988 film, Running On Empty. Also well known for his animal rights activism, he was a spokesperson for PETA and a strict vegan. On Halloween morning, 1993, Phoenix died of a drug overdose on the sidewalk outside the West Hollywood nightclub the Viper Room, then co-owned by friend Johnny Depp. He was the oldest sibling of actors and actresses Rain Phoenix, Joaquin Phoenix, Liberty Phoenix and Summer Phoenix. He also has an older half-sister from his father`s previous relationship, Jodene (who later changed her name to Trust).
On October 31, 1993, Phoenix collapsed from a drug overdose of heroin and cocaine (known as a speedball) outside the Viper Room, a Hollywood night club partially owned, at the time, by actor Johnny Depp. Phoenix had returned to Los Angeles early that week from Utah to complete the three weeks of interior shots left on his last (and, uncompleted) project Dark Blood. His younger sister Rain and brother Joaquin had flown out from Florida to join him at his hotel. River`s girlfriend Samantha Mathis had also come to meet him, and all would be present at the scene of River`s death.
