Who was Farrah Fawcett?

Ferrah Leni "Farrah" Fawcett was an American actress and artist. A multiple Golden Globe and Emmy Award nominee, Fawcett rose to international fame when she posed for her iconic red swimsuit poster and starred as private investigator Jill Munroe in the first season of the television series Charlie's Angels.

Fawcett later appeared off-Broadway to critical approval and in highly rated and critically acclaimed television movies, in roles often challenging, such as in The Burning Bed and Poor Little Rich Girl: The Barbara Hutton Story and sometimes unsympathetic, such as in Small Sacrifices.

In 1996, Fawcett was ranked No. 26 on TV Guide's "50 Greatest TV Stars of All Time" list.
