Robert Wagner booking
Robert Wagner was the son of a Detroit steel executive. When his family moved to Los Angeles, his
original interest in becoming a businessman was replaced by a fascination with the film industry.
Thanks to his father’s connections, he was able to make regular visits to the big studios. Soon, a talent
scout noticed Wagner, and he made his debut in ‘The Happy Years’ in 1950, then he signed with 20th
Century Fox. He played romantic leads with ease, but it wasn’t until he took on the role of a shellshocked war veteran, in ‘With a Song in My Heart’, that studio executives recognized his potential as a
dramatic actor. He went on to play the title roles in ‘Prince Valiant’ and ‘The True Story of Jesse
James’, and then, in contrast, a cold-blooded murderer, in ‘A Kiss Before Dying’, in 1955.
In the early 1960s, however, Wagner suffered a series of personal and professional misfortunes. His
marriage to actress Natalie Wood had dissolved, and his film career faltered after ‘The Pink Panther’ in
1964. He made a respectable comeback as star of the light-hearted TV espionage series, ‘It Takes a
Thief’, in 1968. For the rest of his career, Wagner enjoyed his greatest success on TV, most
memorably opposite Stefanie Powers in the 1970s detective show, ‘Hart to Hart’. On the domestic
front, Wagner was briefly married to actress Marion Marshall before remarrying Natalie Wood in 1972;
after Wood’s death in 1981, Wagner found lasting happiness with his third wife, Jill St. John, a longtime friend and co-worker. Robert Wagner continued to successfully pursue a leading man career into
his sixties; he has also launched a stage career, touring with his ‘Hart to Hart’ co-star, Stefanie Power,
in the “readers’ theatre” presentation, ‘Love Letters’. His film career received a revival through his role
in Mike Myers’s Austin Powers series with his role as Dr. Evil’s henchman known only as Number 2 as
well as becoming the host of Fox Movie Channel’s Hour of Stars, featuring original television episodes
of The 20th Century-Fox Hour (1955), a series which Wagner had appeared on in his early days with
In 2007, Wagner had a role in the BBC series Hustle, where he played a crooked Texan being taken
for half a million dollars. He also made a return to film starring in the comedy horror film ‘Netherbeast
Incorporated’ as the assassinated president James Garfield. He also enjoyed a recurring role in the
comedy ‘Two and a Half Men’, playing a rich suitor of the main characters’ mother. His most recent
appearance occurred in May 2008. Over the course of 2010 and 2011, he starred in three episodes of
‘NCIS’ playing Tony’s father. He was set to star in a remake of ‘Charlie’s Angels’ as Charlie in 2011 but
pulled out due to conflicting schedules. On 18 November 2011, Los Angeles Police announced they
will be reopening the case into Wood’s death in 1981. While filming ‘Brainstorm’ she enjoyed a
yachting trip with her husband Wagner and co-star Christopher Walken but drowned in what was
thought to be an accident.
Wagner’s publicist stated that the actor and his family, including Courtney, his daughter with Wood,
welcomes the reopening of the case. Since then, he has kept a low profile paying tribute to the wife he
loved very much at a question and answer session about his life and career at the Lyric Theatre in
Florida on 14 December 2011.
