At the point when news broke that Robert Wagner was a suspect in the 1981 passing of Natalie Wood and that her reason for death is currently considered “dubious,” entertainer Christopher Walken — one of the last individuals to see Wood alive — didn’t say something. Yet, don’t anticipate that he should state much on the theme — ever.
Walken was one of the three individuals on Wood and Wagner’s vessel, the Splendor, when she was discovered dead, skimming in the water off California’s Catalina Island, on Nov. 29, 1981. The third individual was Dennis Davern, the pontoon’s skipper. While Wagner expounded on the disaster in his 2009 journal, Pieces of My Heart: A Life, and Davern has offered meetings to any semblance of Today and TMZ, Walken has once in a while remarked.
He gave a brief statement to People magazine about Wood’s demise in 1986: “I don’t have the foggiest idea what occurred,” Walken said. “She slipped and fell in the water. I was sleeping at that point. It was an awful thing.
Be that as it may, Walken opened up additional in a 1997 meeting with Playboy, speculating how Wood wound up in the water.
Walken had gone with Wood, his co-star in the 1983 spine-chiller Brainstorm, and her celebrated spouse on their Thanksgiving weekend trip. Walken suspected that Wood likewise might have hit her head before falling into the water.
TMZ recorded Walken’s reaction (well, nonresponse) to an inquiry regarding Wood in 2011 after the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department revived the case dependent on new data. The video was hailed as Walken “ending his quietness,” which gives you a thought of exactly how calm he’s been regarding the matter, in any event out in the open.
Davern, the third man on board the Splendor, had demanded for a considerable length of time that Wagner and Walken were contending before Wood’s vanishing since Wagner was desirous.
Wood’s sister, Lana, wrote in her own book, titled Natalie, in 1984, that Wood had an extraordinary friendship for Walken: “I don’t have the foggiest idea whether Natalie’s [love affair] with Chris was nonexistent or genuine. However, my solid doubt is that it was all in her brain, and that maybe she just wanted it to be so.”
