Ferris Bueller star Jennifer Grey posts sweet throwback photos


You know what they say about life moving pretty fast. It’s been almost 35 years since Ferris Bueller’s Day Offfirst hit screens, with the tale of a righteous dude and his quest for the ultimate day off, and now starJennifer Greyis sharing a time capsule of the iconic film’s production.

With the Ferris Buellercast set to reunite for the final episode ofJosh Gad‘sReunited Apartseries on Sunday, Grey, who played Ferris’ sister Jeanie in the 1986 film, posted a series of throwback photos on Instagram, showing herself, writer-directorJohn Hughes, and co-starsMatthew Broderick,Alan Ruck,Mia Sara, andRichard Edsonduring filming.

In another Instagram post, Grey shared a hilarious behind-the-scenes story from the film. Grey, it seems, was bored on set because she didn’t get to take part in fun sequences like the trip to the art museum and the parade where Ferris lip-synchs to “Twist and Shout.” So, as Grey puts it, “she decided to make her own fun.”

“She dressed up one day and got autographs from of all the stars…and they called security,” Grey wrote, alongside photos of herself in disguise and posing with Edson on location in downtown Chicago. (Missed opportunity not making her an extra in the parade scene in that getup.)
