She may not have a lot of dance experience, but actress Abigail Breslin is confident she’ll have the right moves for her role as Baby in “Dirty Dancing”.
The 19-year-old actress has been cast as Jennifer Grey’s iconic character Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman in the new ABC adaptation of the classic 1987 movie which showed the late Patrick Swayze as Johnny Castle introduce Baby to the world of raunchy routines, reported Femalefirst.
“I haven’t had a lot of dance experience and we’re in the very beginning stages of training, so it’s been interesting. I think it will be crazy when we get into the choreography. I haven’t really danced much other than when I’m with my friends, but Baby, my character, was not super into dancing in the beginning either, so hopefully I can play to that. But I’m down to become a good dancer.”
Abigail has always been a huge fan of the “Dirty Dancing” film and is thrilled to have landed the part of Baby in the TV remake, admitting it’s a dream role for her.
