The rogue, the every man, the boy next door and the statesman: Frank Dean's played it all in his nearly 35 years of acting. He got his start in daytime television but soon made the jump to movies. His breakout role in the 1980s vaulted him into superstar status.

The official biography says that Leslie was raised in the heart of New York, attending small private schools on scholarships. Her love of the arts and natural talent drove her into theatre and dance. She went on to an education at Julliard but quit school to take her breakout role.
Leslie James met Frank Dean when they were cast opposite each other in Lemon Sky. Their attraction was instantaneous but it would be several more years before they would marry. Contrary to most Hollywood marriages, Leslie took Frank's last name though her professional work is still Leslie James. It's a fairy tale romance that middle America can embrace.
PB: Kyra Sedgwick
Frank Dean and Leslie James are successful actors, well-known in Hollywood. They have one daughter, Karolina, who manifested rather visibly as a mutant in February 2006. Faced with the added complications of raising a mutant daughter, her parents eagerly accepted the suggestion that she attend Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, and kept her there despite her loud and frequent complaints. Karolina's parents are not strictly heartless, but busy with their careers and perhaps a little over-sensitive to suggestions they spoil Karolina, steering the other way. Eventually, realising she was truly unhappy at the school, they agreed for her to come home and complete her schooling in California.
