Farrah Fawcett aka Jill Munroe

Farrah Fawcett

A Corpus Christi girl at heart, Farrah left her home town to attend The University of Texas, and began her major in Biology (later changed to Art). Farrah left college in her Junior year and headed to Hollywood. There she met Lee Majors and fell head over heels in love. One of Farrah's first films was 1969's Myra Breckenridge and soon after she went on to be a semi-regular in Lee's series Owen Marshall Attorney at Law and The Six Million Dollar Man. Farrah and Lee got married and she became known as "The Bionic Wife." Farrah's own career took a huge turn after she auditioned for and won a starring role in a new series called Charlie's Angels. Farrah Fawcett-Majors became known as the sexy blond Jill Munroe. Charlie's Angels became a huge success but Farrah became a phenomenon. She was a house-hold name around the world, and before anyone knew it her famous "swimsuit pose" was hanging in everyone's bedroom. Farrah shocked the world when she left the hit series after only one year to pursue her film career. She went on to a court battle with the shows producers, Aaron Spelling and Leonard Goldberg. Farrah settled the court suit by appearing on Charlie's Angels for six episodes during the next two years. During that time, Farrah shot three films: Somebody Killed Her Husband, Sunburn, and Saturn 3. Unfortunately the three S's were bombs. Farrah and Lee split and she found her true love, Ryan O'Neal. Farrah returned to television in the film Murder in Texas, in which she won the critics' praise. She was next found off Broadway performing the lead role in Extremities. Broadway critics raved about her performance which won her the title role in the television film, The Burning Bed. The Burning Bed was Farrah's strongest role of her long career. After The Burning Bed, Farrah as an actor was never questioned. Farrah then when on to do the film version of Extremities. Soon after, Farrah was graced with her son, Readmond, by long time lover, Ryan O'Neal. In 1991, Farrah and Ryan starred together in the short lived series Good Sports. In December of 1995 Farrah finally gave in and did a pictorial for Playboy. Farrah's Playboy issue sold over four million copies making it the biggest issue for Playboy for the nineties.   Farrah was nominated Emmy  for her work on  CBS's The Guardian.  On March 23, 2005,  TVLand's Chasing Farrah a reality show starring  Farrah hit the airwaves.

In 2006 Farrah, Kate & Jaclyn surprised the world when they reunited for a tribute to the late Aaron Spelling on the 60th Emmy Awards.

Farrah was diagnosed with anal cancer in 2006.  In February 2007 she was declared cancer free but the cancer returned.  Farrah fought her cancer until she passed away on June 25, 2009.  Farrah was 63.
