Grease star Edd Byrnes dies, aged 86

2 monthes ago   |   By Radio Times

American actor and former television teen idol Edd Byrnes has died aged 86, following what his family believe to have been a stroke.
International audiences will probably best remember Byrnes from the 1978 musical film Grease, in which he played Vince Fontaine, who hosts the televised dancing competition at Rydell High School and seduces female student and ‘Pink Lady' Marty.
Set in the 1950s, the film featured a number of stars from 1950s television, including Brynes himself and Frankie Avalon, who sings the dream sequence tune Beauty School Drop-out.
