Madonna - Lourdes Leon lands high school Grease role

Madonna's daughter Lourdes Leon is to star in her school's version of 'Grease'.

The 17-year-old fashion designer has landed the role of Betty Rizzo in the LaGuardia High School production of the iconic musical, which is set in a 1950s high school, New York Daily News column Confidenti@l is reporting.

The role was played by Stockard Channing in the 1973 movie - which starred John Travolta as Danny Zuko and Olivia Newton-John as his love interest Sandy Olsson.

Wisecracking Betty is a member of The Pink Ladies clique of girls with Sandy and ends up dating T-Birds group member Kenickie (Jeff Conaway).

Lourdes enrolled in the exclusive New York school in 2010 and it was there where she met her boyfriend, 'Homeland' actor Timothee Chalamet.

Shortly after they began dating, Madonna arranged a meeting between her and Timothee so she could get to know the boy who had impressed her daughter so much.
