Sexy and energetic dancer Annette Charles from the 1978 film "Grease," died Wednesday night. Her rep says the 63-year-old passed away in her L.A. home due to complications from cancer.
"Annette had recently had difficulty breathing and when she went to the doctor she learned that she had a cancerous tumor in one of her lungs," Charles' family member revealed to TMZ. Doctors had learned about her serious condition only a few months ago, and the actress was hospitalized for about a month prior to her death.
Annette, best-known for her saucy role as Cha Cha DiGregorio, who danced the "Hand Jive" with John Travolta, was also a speech professor at California State University Northridge.
