RIP: Annette Charles passed away last night in Los Angeles

Just over two months after the death of Grease star Jeff Conaway, another cast member has passed away.

Annette Charles, who played racy Cha Cha DiGregorio, died last night at her home in Los Angeles.

The brunette beauty was 63-years-old and had been suffering from cancer.

The actress is most famous for her role alongside John Travolta in the movie Grease

Cha Cha was the girl who stole Danny Zucco (John Travolta) from Sandy (Olivia Newton John) half way through the film.

Before her role in Grease, Annette had a highly successful television career appearing in several long running series in the 1970s including Emergency! Barnaby Jones and The Bionic Woman.

After retiring from acting in 1978, she became a teacher and taught at the California State University in Northridge.
