Here’s What The Cast Of “Grease” Looks Like Now

Grease OMG is the word!

Posted on

John Travolta as Danny Zuko

Fun fact: Before Travolta landed the role of Danny, producers wanted to cast Henry Winkler in the part. Winkler turned down the role because it was too similar to his iconic character, Fonzie, on Happy Days.

Olivia Newton-John as Sandy Olsson

Fun fact: In the stage version of Grease, Sandy’s last name is actually Dumbrowski, and she isn't from Australia (she's American). When Newton-John (who is Australian) was cast in the role, Sandy’s nationality (along with her last name) were changed to tailor the role more to her.

Lorenzo Lamas as Tom Chisum

Fun fact: In order to get the role, Lamas was asked to dye his dark brown hair blond to avoid looking like a T-Bird. He was also the only actual teenager in the film; he was 19 during filming.

Didi Conn as Frenchy

Fun fact: Conn was the only actor (excluding the actors who played the teachers and school administrators) to reprise her role in Grease 2.

Jeff Conway, who played Kenickie, sadly passed away in 2011. RIP Kenickie.
