Vanessa told the audience that she was shocked when she found out she was being considered for the character Rizzo instead of Sandy.
“When I heard they were doing this, my manager called me and said, ‘Yeah, they’re doing Grease, and they’re interesting in you for Rizzo,’” Vanessa said. “I’m, like, ‘Are you sure? Not Sandy?’ I always saw myself as Sandy. I was always the good girl in my mind. Then I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, Rizzo is so amazing. This is gonna be so much fun.’”
