Olivia Newton-John was that rare thing: a wonderfully unselfconscious star

After soaring to fame in Grease, Newton-John – who has died aged 73 – became the queen of the movie soundtrack album, and her roles in oddball hits Xanadu and A Mom for Christmas meant audiences never stopped loving her.

She’s perhaps best known for her role as Sandy Olsson in 1978 musical Grease, starring opposite John Travolta. She is noted for her vocal performances in tracks ‘Summer Nights’ and ‘You’re The One That I Want’ – which is still one of the best-selling singles of all time.

Muere Olivia Newton-John, protagonista de ‘Grease’, a los 73 años

La actriz británico-australiana es conocida en todo el mundo por protagonizar la película musical Grease, de 1978, junto a John Travolta. Su papel de Sandy la catapultó a la fama con canciones como You’re the One that I Want, Summer Nights o Hopelessly Devoted to You. Olivia Newton-John se resistía inicialmente a aceptar el papel de su vida. No terminaba de convencerle el cine y además sentía que, con 28 años, no era la más apropiada para interpretar a una estudiante de instituto.

I’m devastated to hear the news that Olivia Newton-John has passed away. One of the great privileges of my life was getting to know her. Not only was she one of the most talented people I’ve known … she was one of the most open hearted, generous and funny.
