More about Jennifer Grey (courtesy of Biography.com)
Actress Jennifer Grey was born on March 26, 1960, in New York, New York. The daughter of actor-dancer Joel Grey and singer Jo Wilder, she grew up surrounded by show business. She first appeared on screen in 1984 with three films: “Reckless,” “The Cotton Club” and “Red Dawn,” which marked the first time she worked with Patrick Swayze. Two years later, she played the sharp, jealous sister in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” with Matthew Broderick. While she gave a strong comedic performance in that film, her next project made her a star.
In “Dirty Dancing” (1987), Grey played Frances “Baby” Houseman, a teenager on a family vacation at a resort in New York’s Catskill Mountains. At the age of 27, she did a very convincing job of portraying an adolescent who falls for a dance instructor at the resort played by Patrick Swayze. Set in the 1960s, the movie scored big at the box office as did its retro soundtrack.
