Actress. Born Mary Farrah Leni Fawcett, she is best known for her role as Jill Munroe from the television series "Charlie's Angels." She appeared on the series from 1976 to 1980. She left the show at the conclusion of the first season in 1976, but returned to the series in guest role appearances over the next three seasons as part of a contractual settlement, avoiding a potential breach of contract lawsuit. Fawcett became one of the premier sex symbols of the 1970s and 1980s, appearing on the magazine covers of "Playboy," "Harpers Bazaar," "People," "Time," "Cosmopolitan," "Vanity Fair," "Vogue" and "TV Guide" among others. In 1976 she posed in a red swimsuit poster, selling over 12 million copies worldwide. Fawcett was the former wife of actor Lee Majors and live-in girlfriend of actor Ryan O'Neal. She began her career appearing in television commercials for Ultra-Brite toothpaste, Noxema shaving cream and Wella Balsam shampoo before moving on to television and motion pictures. Her motion picture credits include: "Myra Breckinridge" (1970), "Logan's Run" (1976), "Somebody Killed Her Husband" (1978), "Sunburn" (1979), "Saturn 3" (1980), "The Cannonball Run" (1981), "Extremities" (1986), "See You in the Morning" (1989), "Man of the House" (1995), "The Apostle" (1997), "The Lovemaster" (1997), "Dr T and the Women" (2000) and the "Cookout" in 2004. Her television credits include: "Mayberry R.F.D.," "I Dream of Jeannie," "The Flying Nun," "The Partridge Family," "McCloud," "Marcus Welby M.D.," "The Six Million Dollar Man," "Ally McBeal," "Spin City" and the "Guardian." In 2004 she was the recipient of two TV Land Awards for her work in Charlie's Angels, and in 1977 she earned a People's Choice Award as Favorite Female Performer in a New TV Program. She also drew critical acclaim for her work in the television motion picture "The Burning Bed" in 1984, and was also nominated for her work in "Small Sacrifices" (1989), "The Guardian" (2001), "Poor Little Rich Girl: The Barbara Hutton Story" (1987) and "Nazi Hunter: The Beate Klarsfelt Story" in 1986. In 1995 she was awarded a star on Hollywood's prestigious Walk of Fame, and in 2003 she was inducted into the Texas Film Hall of Fame. Diagnosed with cancer in September 2006, she waged a long battle with the disease before eventually succumbing to it at the age of 62. (bio by: Nils M. Solsvik Jr.)
