Jennifer Gray will once again put herself in the shoes of Frances 'Baby' Houseman 35 years later. The American actress will star in the sequel to Dirty Dancing, the film that made her famous.
Gray spoke exclusively to Extra about the reshoot, which is due to start in the spring, and hinted that it will take place at the same fictional resort, called Kellerman's, where the original story was staged.
Gray admitted that crafting the Dirty Dancing sequel has been "complicated and exciting at the same time." The interpreter announced that in the second part of this love story that takes place during the summer we will be able to see a Baby "quite a few years older" and other characters from the original film will also appear.
The actress did not talk about whether or not there will be the role of Johnny Castle, her partner in the original film and who was then played by actor Patrick Swayze, who died of pancreatic cancer.
The film was released in theaters in 1987, being awarded various awards, including the Oscar for Best Original Song for (I've Had) The Time of My Life, performed by Jennifer Warnes and Bill Medley.
