Vanessa Hudgens Thanks Fans for Support After ‘Grease: Live’
Vanessa Hudgens is grateful for the support she received while starring in the Grease: Live TV event just one day after her father passed away. The actress played bad girl Rizzo in the U.S. television musical on Sunday night, with the performance taking place mere hours after she revealed her father Greg had lost his battle to cancer.
The show was ultimately dedicated to her 65-year-old dad, and Hudgens won praise for her stunning appearance from critics and fans alike, with co-star Mario Lopez tweeting, “Imagine if you had a day like @VanessaHudgens & performed like that. Wow. What a strong woman.My new hero.”— Mario Lopez (@MarioLopezExtra) February 1, 2016
