Lunch Break Video: Some scenes from Farrah Fawcett’s career on what would have been her 72nd birthday

Farrah Fawcett was one of those stars whose beauty, talent and fighting spirit left an indelible mark.

She will never be forgotten.

Farrah, who died in 2009 after more than a two-year battle against cancer, would have turned 72-year-old today.

It seemed like a good time to remember her movie and television roles and a reunion with her Charlie’s Angels co-stars Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith which took place in 1998 as part of a tribute to Aaron Spelling.

Farrah may have left Charlie’s Angels after just one season (she returned for a series of guest appearances in seasons 3 and 4) but it was a season that had quite an impact on television and on the culture.

She wanted to be taken seriously as an actress and while her first post-Angels films Somebody Killed Her Husband, Sunburn and Saturn 3 did little to help her, she eventually found meaty roles in television and film – most memorably The Burning Bed, Small Sacrifices, Extremities, The Apostle, Murder in Texas and Between Two Women.

Let’s appreciate some of Farrah:

One Remark

  1. Farrah Fawcett was amazing, and I am so glad she had the chance to demonstrate what a powerful actress she was. She was so beautiful and sexy – I think every other boy I knew had that swimsuit poster of hers hanging on his wall, LOL – but in the end she proved that there was so much more to her than just being born good-looking. You are right. She will always be remembered.
