She starred in one of the most iconic romance movies of all time.

And Jennifer Grey was thrilled to see a fellow passenger watching Dirty Dancing as she took a flight on Valentine's Day on Tuesday.

The actress, 62, shared video of the traveler watching the final dance scene to her Instagram account on Wednesday. 

'On a plane this valentine's day and lookit what i spy with my little (eye emoji)!! #dirtydancing,' she captioned the photo.

The original film was released in 1987 and followed the romance of Baby Houseman and her dance instructor Johnny Castle, and now a sequel is in the works with Jennifer returning to her original role.

In November, Jennifer spilled a few new details about the upcoming sequel - including that multiple characters from the original will be back.

Jennifer dished to Extra that audiences who go to the sequel will be treated to the sight of her own character 'Baby, quite a few years older.'

She added: 'You will see other characters that are from the original,' while acknowledging that making the sequel will be 'tricky and exciting.'

Jennifer noted that the sequel will bring back not just some old faces but also an old setpiece - a made-up Catskills resort called Kellerman's.

She starred in the original 1987 movie as a 1960s high school girl who goes to Kellerman's on holiday with her parents and falls for the resort's resident dance instructor Johnny Castle, played by Patrick Swayze. 

Patrick died in 2009 at the age of 57 after a battle with pancreatic cancer, and Jennifer has previously confessed that his absence will make the sequel a challenge.

'What happened happened, and that will never happen again,' she said of the original movie in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

'There will never be another Johnny. There will never be another Patrick. This sequel has got to be its own standalone piece. It's very tricky.'

When asked about the sequel in general, she replied: 'I can't tell you much, sadly, but I will tell you that it will involve Baby. It will involve Kellerman's. There will be music.'

Jennifer, who now has an adult daughter, added with a self-deprecating laugh: 'Unless there's a lot of CGI, Baby's going to be a little older.'

She went on: 'It's going to be Kellerman's, music, dancing, love story, romance. I'm just so super committed and invested in making it a fresh [take].'

Laying out the logistics, she shared: 'There's a script, we're working on the script. We're going to shoot it in the spring of 2023, and it comes out on Feb. 9, 2024.'

Dirty Dancing was directed by Emile Ardolino, who went on to make Sister Act before dying of AIDS complications in 1993 at the age of just 50.

The forthcoming sequel is being directed by Jonathan Levine, whose filmography features such movies as 50/50 and Warm Bodies.
