Bio

Farrah Fawcett (2 February, 1947 – 25 June, 2009) was an American actress who became a noted pop culture figure and legendary sex symbol of the 1970s, then an iconic actress in the 1980s, changing the cultural landscape of how television actresses appeared on film.

She is best known for playing Jill Monroe on the original television series of Charlie's Angels.

Fawcett was married to the star of The Six Million Dollar Man, Lee Majors, from 1973 to 1982, during which time she was known as Farrah Fawcett-Majors.

Fawcett was also a pop culture figure whose hairstyle was emulated by millions of young women and whose poster sales broke records, making her an international sex symbol in the 1970s and 1980s.

Fawcett was diagnosed with anal cancer in 2006, and began treatment, including chemotherapy and surgery. In June 2009, Ryan O'Neal asked Fawcett to marry him. She accepted his proposal and O'Neal said the wedding would happen "as soon as she can say yes." The two never married.

Fawcett died at 9:28 a.m. PST on 25 June, 2009, in the intensive care unit of Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, California, with O'Neal and Stewart by her side.
