Marjorie, Kelly Bishop
Although best known for her role as Emily Gilmore, on Gilmore Girls, Bishop played Marjorie, Baby’s mother in the film.
Bishop wasn’t actually the first choice for the role and was initially cast in a much smaller part. However, Lynne Lipton, the actress assigned the role, fell ill during the first week of shooting so Kelly ended up playing the role instead!
Bishop has starred in a range of films such as Queens Logic, Café Society, Miami Rhapsody and Blue Moon. However, her real big break came in 2000 when she was cast as the wealthy matriarch, Emily Gilmore. mother of Lorelai and grandmother of Rory. She reprised the role last year for the miniseries Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life on Netflix.
Baby, Jennifer Grey
The star of the film and Swayze’s love interest was Frances Houseman, better known as Baby.
Grey was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actress in this defining role, however, following a car crash she decided to withdraw herself from acting and her career for a few years.
From 1999 she starred as herself in ABC sitcom It’s Like, You Know…, until the early 00s. She then made one-off appearances in shows such as House and Friends. Most recently, she publicly took part in the 2017 Los Angeles Women’s March! She still looks beautiful all these years on!
