Actress Jennifer Grey is still struggling with the death of Dirty Dancing co-star Patrick Swayze because she has only recently realised just how strong her feelings were for the actor/dancer.
Grey and Swayze became iconic onscreen lovers in the hit 1987 film and, despite reports the two didn't get along on the set of the romance movie, the actress reveals her former co-star's cancer battle and passing have hit her very hard.
Opening up for the first time since Swayze's death in September (09), she tells U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight, "I think the reality (of his death) is shocking to me and really sad. I have been sad for the two years he was sick.
"I realised I had a real depth of feeling for him that I hadn't felt like I got to express to him enough. For that, I feel grateful for the chance to have him in my heart. In that sense it was beautiful because I felt the gift of him in a strong way.
"He was a very original, special guy... It (death) was such a shock, even though there was no surprise."
