Zbigniew Hubert Cybulski

Zbigniew Hubert Cybulski (1927 –1967) was a Polish actor, one of the best-known and most popular personalities of the post-World War II history of Poland.

Cybulski died in an accident at a Wrocław Główny railway station on 8 January 1967, on his way from the film set. As he jumped on the speeding train (as he often did), he slipped on the steps, fell under the train, and was run over.
Cybulski remains a legend of the Polish cinema. His style of acting was revolutionary at the time, as was his image (leather clothes and big sunglasses). He was often referred to as "the Polish James Dean". Like Dean, he played nonconformist rebels, and like him he died young.
