Dorian meets and falls in love with young budding actress Sibyl Vane (Rachel Hurd-Wood) and after a matter of a few weeks proposes, but after Henry tells Dorian that having children is 'the beginning of the end' Dorian and Sybil argue and he leaves her, the next day discovering that she has killed herself - and that she was carrying his child. His initial grief disappears as Henry persuades him that all events are mere experiences and without consequence, and his hedonistic lifestyle worsens, distancing him from a concerned Basil. Dorian goes home to find the portrait of himself warped and twisted and realises that his pledge has come true; while the portrait ages he remains ever-youthful, while his sins show as physical defects on the canvas. The chaos of the picture of Dorian Gray starts.
