Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I almost said no [to the role of Cha Cha in "Grease"]. I was working really hard to become an actress and didn't want to be thought of as just a dancer.

Trivia:

During the Thunder Road sequence in Grease (1978), she was experiencing terrible pain due to a tubular pregnancy, in which the fertilized egg begins growing in the fallopian tube rather than the uterus. This explains why she is frequently seen leaning against the cars. She received leave from her doctor to shoot the scene and upon finishing it, she was rushed to the hospital for surgery. See more »
