Original 'Grease' Stars Didi Conn & Buddy Pearl Join Fox Production 'Grease Live'
The 27-year-old actresses were joined by their Grease Live co-stars Carlos PenaVega, Aaron Tveit, David Del Rio, Andrew Call, Jordan Fisher, Kether Donahue, Keke Palmer and Carly Rae Jepsen for the star-studded bash.
During the panel earlier in the day, it was revealed that original Grease stars Buddy Pearl and Didi Conn, who starred as Doody and Frenchy, would be joining the live special.
While it’s unknown what role Buddy will play, Didi will play Vi, the waitress at the local malt shop who interacts with Frenchy (Jepsen).
“We do have a moment where we have the generations staring at each other and having this really wonderful scene and that was pretty thrilling to watch to say the last and incredibly moving for all of us,” director Thomas Kail shared.
