Actress who played Cha Cha in 'Grease' dies

LOS ANGELES -- Actress Annette Charles, best-known for her role as Cha Cha DiGregorio in ''Grease,'' has died. She was 63.

Longtime friend Tom LaBonge, a Los Angeles councilman, said she died in the city after a battle with cancer. She died Wednesday night, said her agent, Derek Maki.

Her death comes a little more than two months after the death of ''Grease'' actor Jeff Conaway, whose character Kenickie was Cha Cha's date at the school dance.

Oozing a sultry confidence on film, Charles introduced her character at the dance by saying, ''They call me Cha Cha, 'cause I'm the best dancer at St. Bernadette's.''

Summit responded to her denial Thursday in a news release saying Santia earlier acknowledged making a systematic attack on the company's servers and email accounts over several months.
