Charles had also featured in the television series' 'The Bionic Women', 'Barnaby Jones' and 'Emergency'. Her 'Grease' co-star Conaway died on 26th May 2011 after family members made the decision to switch off his life support machine. The actor, who played 'Kenicke' in the classic musical film, had previously been found unconscious at his home in California.
