Patrick Swayze's Widow Recreates 'Dirty Dancing' Scene With His Wax Figure


On hand during the unveiling of her late husband's likeness at Madame Tussauds wax museum in Hollywood, Lisa Niemi admits that seeing the statue two years after his death is bittersweet.

Lisa Niemi made the most of Patrick Swayze's wax figure. When attending the unveiling ceremony for her husband's likeness at Madame Tussauds wax museum in Hollywood on Tuesday, October 18, the 55-year-old struck a pose with the statue that recreated one of the iconic scenes from "Dirty Dancing".

The unveiling of Patrick's doppelganger came two years after the actor died of pancreatic cancer at 57. Speaking of the statue, Lisa told Access Hollywood, "He had this kind of mischievous, but confident look... and things like his core [were] very, very strong and they worked on his arms more, so it's very detailed. There"s a lot of work that goes into this."

The actress/dancer, who was married to "The Beast" actor for 34 years, also said, "In a way, its really wonderful and exciting and everyone's in such a good mood here, and it's gonna be so fun to have this figure in the museum here, and at the same time it's bittersweet." She added, "I wish he were here, really here."

Patrick's wax figure is perching on a faux log, recreating the famous "Dirty Dancing" when he teaches Jennifer Grey's character the importance of balance in dance. About the pose, Lisa commented that her husband is saying, "Come and be fearless with me. Go out there on a limb. Just trust. Don't look down. Take a chance in whatever you do."
