Another Grease actor has died.

Annette Charles, who played Cha Cha DiGregorio in the 1978 movie musical, lost her battle with cancer at age 63 on Wednesday, Access Hollywood reports.

As the self-proclaimed "best dancer at St. Bernadette's," Charles's character famously hit the floor with John Travolta during the dance competition scene.

Anne Hathaway & James Franco Do Grease's 'You're The One That I Want'

Is James Franco the one that Anne Hathaway wants for the Oscars?

Apparently so, as the Academy Awards co-hosts reenact the iconic carnival scene ("You're The One That I Want") from 1978's Grease in a YouTube clip that the Oscar-nominated actor posted on Twitter Wednesday afternoon.

In the 19-second video, Franco slicks back his hair a la John Travolta's Danny Zuko and Hathaway shakes her tush – clad in the skin-tight leather pants made famous by Olivia Newton-John's Sandy Olsson.

Will this homage to Grease be included in their Oscars telecast? You'll have to tune into the 83rd annual Academy Awards, airing live Sunday, Feb. 27, at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT) on ABC, to find out!
