Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood
The lifeguard who pulled drowned Natalie Wood's body from the water three decades ago has welcomed a new investigation into the tragedy - because he still believes the actress could have been saved if officials had started a search for her earlier.

TV veteran Robert Wagner will replace the late John Forsythe as the voice of Charlie in a planned Charlie's Angels small screen remake.

The actress, who plays Maya Ward in General Hospital, is billed to play a martial arts expert.
