Dirty Dancing's Abigail Breslin on Filming 'Time of My Life' Finale: 'He Knew I Would Murder Him if He Dropped Me'

Abigail Breslin is spilling on what it was like shooting the iconic “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” finale scene for ABC’s upcoming Dirty Dancing remake.

The 20-year-old actress says she was super nervous to recreate the classic moment from the 1987 film, but her co-star Colt Prattes made it easier!

“There was this weight of everyone loving it so much,” Abigail told TV Insider. “Just being graceful is a big enough feat for me, but being graceful while in the air? It was terrifying.”

“Yet we pulled it off – partially due to Colt’s talent, but also due to the fact that he knew I would murder him if he dropped me,” she joked.

Dirty Dancing centers on Frances “Baby” Houseman (Abigail), who, while vacationing with her family in the Catskills Mountains, falls in love with the camp’s dance instructor Johnny Castle (Colt).

Don’t miss Dirty Dancing when it premieres on May 24!
