Natasha Gregson Wagner Pens Memoir About Life With And Without Her Mother, Natalie Wood

Natasha Wagner visits The Front Row Network

Front Row Classics kicks off September with a very special interview. Brandon and Eric welcome Natasha Gregson Wagner to the Front Row. Natasha is the daughter of Natalie Wood and stepdaughter of Robert Wagner. She has written a beautiful memoir about life with and without her mother called, "More than Love: An Intimate Portrait of My Mother, Natalie Wood."

The interview covers many aspects of the book including growing up in the spotlight, finding your own voice in life and coming to peace with your own grief. We also take time to celebrate the life and talents of a woman whose death has often overshadowed her amazing accomplishments. This interview will certainly leave you feeling like you've spent time with an old friend. "More than Love" is available from Scribner Books, an imprint of Simon and Schuster.

Natasha Gregson Wagner has acted in such films as "Another Day in Paradise," "High Fidelity," "Two Girls and a Guy" and David Lynch’s "Lost Highway," and in the television shows "Ally McBeal," "House MD" and "Chicago Hope." In 2016, she coauthored a coffee table book titled "Natalie Wood: Reflections of a Legendary Life." She is one of the producers of the HBO documentary of her mother’s life "Natalie Wood: What Remains Behind." Wagner lives in Los Angeles with her family.

Brandon Davis is the host of Classics and Zone-i-Sodes on the Front Row Network. A true fan of cinema history, Brandon holds the distinction of being the official film historian of the Network.
