In fact, Randal found out 30 years ago that the couple was destined for each other.

“I actually interviewed Kelly for the Blue Lagoon. She’s one of the  people we considered for that but she seemed too wise to me,” he said. “At  the time I interviewed her, she said ‘Grease is my favorite movie and  some day I want to marry John Travolta’,”
