Today marks seven years since the passing of Farrah Fawcett.

Farrah Fawcett was born Mary Farrah Leni Fawcett on February 2, 1947.  She was best known for playing Jill Munroe opposite Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith in the popular 1970s Aaron Spelling series Charlie’s Angels.  At the time, Farrah was married to Lee Majors who had earned a name for himself playing Steve Austin in The Six Million Dollar Man.

Farrah who was known at this time as Farrah Fawcett-Majors, instantly became the break-out star of the series and pin-up of many a teenage boy due to a best selling poster of many a teenage boy.

She starred in such films as Logan’s Run (1976) and The Cannonball Run (1981). But it wasn’t until after dramatic performances in the movies The Burning Bed (1984) and Small Sacrifices (1989) that Farrah became recognized as an actress, receiving  Emmy and Golden Globe nominations. She had a recurring role on the sitcom Spin City (2001).

In 2006, Farrah was diagnosed with anal cancer. She succumbed to the disease three years later on June 25, 2009.

On the anniversary of her death, we thank Farrah Fawcett for her many contributions to film and television. She’ll never be forgotten.
