Farrah, who died in 2009 after more than a two-year battle against cancer, would have turned 74-years-old today.
It seemed like a good time to remember her post-Charlie’s Angels movie and television roles which resulted in three Emmy nominations and five Golden Globe nods as well as an Independent Spirit Award nomination.
