Reece was a child model of five when he was given the option of a small role in Titanic or a petrol advert.

But the role of ‘Irish little boy’ proved lucrative, earning him £30,000 at the time and royalty cheques since.

His small but unforgettable scene, which sees the boy, his mother and sister lying down on their bed to die as the third class doors remain locked, was among the most tragic in the movie.

Reece has turned his back on showbiz, and now works as a digital marketing director at Brian Head Resort, a skiing resort in Utah.

He still gets the occasional royalty payment through the post; he told Business Insider: “It’s weird because it’s not present in my mind anymore. It’s not like, 'Oh, when am I going to get a new Titanic cheque?’ When it happens, it’s like, 'Oh, freddo, an extra $100.

“It’s pretty bizarre. But hopefully they keep playing it a lot because that means more money for me.”
