Leading Australian actress and singer of the 1970s Olivia Newton-John died at the age of 73 on Monday morning at her Southern California home after a long battle with cancer.
In one of her latest pictures, which she posted on social networks, Olivia is shown with a radiant smile, surrounded by a field of sunflowers. “I wish you all the best and send you love and light,” she said in her latest video.
Her husband John said that her last wish was to ask her friends and fans to donate to charity instead of flowers.
Olivia’s biggest film success was her role as Sandy in Grease, where she co-starred with John Travolta in 1978. Producer Allan Carr even adapted the script for Olivia, making the character an Australian immigrant to accommodate her accent. When the film was released, it became an international hit, and the singer turned into a world sex symbol.
