Actress Gloria Steward was the only person on set who lived during the real shipwreck of the Titanic. The woman was born in 1910. Gloria Steward inherited the role of old rose. In the film rose had turned 101 years old and the actress was only 86 years old. She repeatedly stressed that he was unhappy with the make-up artists who “salariali” her even more.
