17-year-old "Rizzo" from "Grease" was 34 years old

17-year-old “Rizzo” from “Grease” was 34 years old

20. October In 1978, the movie “Grease” appeared. So this year, the film’s creators can celebrate the film’s 43rd birthday! What distinguishes “grease” is that it is still popular.

Although the movie came out in the 1970s, many were born many years later with something special to do with the movie. The same goes for “Dirty Dancing”, for example!

We’ll probably never forget the love affair between Danny and Sandy, songs like “Summer Nights” and “You The One That I Want”, and the character Rizzo who also made a huge impression.

The last character was played by Stockard Channing (77). Since the appearance of “Grease,” Channing has been seen on the series “The West Wing” as the character of First Lady Abby Bartlett.

But perhaps this is the role of Rizzo Channing that she is best known for. In the movie, she played the toughest girl in Riddle High School. You might also remember from the movie that she thinks she’s pregnant and that rumors circulate at school.

In the movie, Channing plays a 17-year-old, but in reality she was 34! In fact, very few of the characters in “Grease” were close to the age in which they played.

Roger, played by Kelly Ward (65), was among those close. He was 21 years old when the movie came out. Dina Manoff (65) played Marty and was just one year older than Kelly Ward. Jimmy Donnelly (74) played Jean, perhaps the most childish role in the movie.
