Death Summary: Farrah Fawcett died after a long hard battle with cancer.

Ryan O'Neal, Fawcett's longtime companion, released the following statement...

“After a long and brave battle with cancer, our beloved Farrah has passed away. Although this is an extremely difficult time for her family and friends, we take comfort in the beautiful times that we shared with Farrah over the years and the knowledge that her life brought joy to so many people around the world."

Who was Farrah Fawcett : Fawcett was an actress and a pop culture icon. At the height of her career, she was a sex symbol to millions of young men and a fashion icon for young women… most notably being her famed hairstyle.

Fawcett began her career doing commercials in the late 19060s and early 1970s for Wella Balsam Shampoo. Around the same time a poster company, Pro Arts Inc., got in touch with Fawcett’s agent to discuss a possible poster. Bruce McBroom was hired to take the poolside photos of Fawcett, he used an old worn-out Indian blanket as a backdrop… to their surprise, the poster would go on to become one of the best selling posters of all time at around 12 million copies. (You can see the image at the top of this page).

In the late 1970s Fawcett got a role on the new television show entitled Charlie’s Angels. The show was about three women who work for a private investigation agency ran by Charles Townsend and his liaison Bosley. The first episode of Charlie’s Angels aired on September 22, 1976 and became an instant sensation, but Fawcett left the show after just one season.

Fawcett was married to Lee Majors, star of The Six Million Dollar Man, from 1973 – 1982. During her relationship with Majors, she was known as Farrah Fawcett-Majors. Shortly after their divorce in 1982, Fawcett became romantically linked with actor Ryan O’Neal.

Along with her television career Fawcett also appeared in quite a few theatrical films…
