Describing what it was like filming the kiss, Newton-John said, “Of course I was nervous. I remember just before that we were sitting on a rock and actually in the movie those waves were crashing on us… It was a special day and it was a really good way to get to know John a little because we didn’t spend much time together. time for rehearsals, dancing and all that, but it was our first acting day. . This was spectacular. It was special.”
Despite her nervousness, Newton-John revealed that Travolta helped calm her down and guided her along the way as she was new to acting. Describing his generosity, Newton-John continued: “He was very thoughtful and would cheer me up if he thought I wasn’t doing well enough.”
