Like her mother, Natasha is an actress who first appeared in the 1992 film, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," as shown in her IDMB profile.

Natalie's drowning incident may have had some foul play, with an investigator considering her second husband, Robert Wagner, a "person of interest."

Born on September 29, 1970, in Los Angeles, Natasha is Natalie's daughter with British producer and writer Richard Gregson. The couple, married from 1969 to 1972, separated before Natasha was a year old.

Natasha expressed an interest in acting at an early age. With her beautiful dark eyes and dark hair, Natasha is unmistakably the daughter of Natalie, who starred opposite James Dean in the 1955 film, "Rebel Without a Cause."

THE HOLLYWOOD ICON'S TRAGIC DEATH

Natalie tragically died from drowning on Catalina Island on November 29, 1981, when Natasha was only 11 years old. This traumatic childhood experience influenced Natasha's dark-edged roles in Hollywood.

Her uninhibited and risk-taking characters include a cheating girlfriend in David Lynch's "Lost Highway" (1997), the feisty and street-savvy Lou in the improvisation-styled romantic triangle, "Two Girls and a Guy."

Her other memorable movies are "First Love, Last Rites" (1997), "Dogtown" (1997), "Another Day in Paradise" (1998), and "Urban Legend" (1998).

Natasha has two half-sisters. When she was two years old, her mother re-married. She tied the knot with Robert Wagner, whose last name eventually was added to Natasha's.

Robert also had a daughter, Katie, from a previous marriage. He and Natalie also later had a daughter together, Courtney, as reported by Hello Giggles.

HUSBAND AS DETECTIVE'S PERSON OF INTEREST

In 2018, the mysterious circumstances of Natalie's death resurfaced with the airing of a documentary show called "Natalie Wood: Death in Dark Water," as reported by Heavy.

Initially ruled an accident, Natalie's drowning incident may have had some foul play, with an investigator considering her second husband, Robert Wagner, a "person of interest."

Wagner recently opened up about Natalie's tragic death.

"When Natalie died I thought my life was over. Natalie was such a special, wonderful woman," he said.  

Wood's death haS been controversial due to conflicting witness statements, with Wagner being named a person of interest at one point during the investigation.
