When Dorian first sees Sybil Vane, she is an actress on stage - she is an art; however, when Dorian and Sybil meet, and Dorian confesses his love to her, something in Sybil changes. Her change can be undoubtedly be seen in chapter seven, when she performs on stage in as Juliet, the play in which Dorian and Lord Henry go to see. Sybil exhibits none of the poise, skill, emotion, or grace as she had before. Instead, she "showed no sign of joy when her eyes rested on Romeo" and "the staginess of her acting grew worse as she went on. Her gestures became absurdly artificial" (87). Sybil is no longer an actress; she is no longer an art. She no longer sees herself as only an actress in life. Now, she has committed herself to reality, and Dorian is furious. Dorian only loved the art in Sybil because Dorian himself is an art, and his painting is his reality. After the show, Dorian tells Sybil in an outrage that "you have killed my love" (91). The next morning, despite Dorian's changed state of mind to write Sybil an apology letter, he hears news that Sybil has died by probable suicide.
After breaking up with Sybil.
First he doesn't want to believe it, saying Sybil is below Dorian's rank. When Dorian arrives, he takes offense Dorian informed Henry first. Finally, he hopes Dorian will be happy.
Dorian Gray fell in love with Sybil Vane because she was such a wonderful actress: he felt that she could really make Shakespeare's plays come to life. However, when it occurred to her that it was wrong to mimic passion on a stage when all her real passion was centered on Dorian, she lost her acting skills. Dorian, after seeing this, went to her and declared that she had 'killed his love', that he now found her 'shallow and stupid' and that he 'couldn't see her again'. She committed suicide that same night. Eighteen years later, James Vane, Sybil's brother, was accidentally shot dead while seeking revenge for her death.
They're both interested in themselves. They're both "seekers" as well, probably.
