Three-time Emmy Award nominated actress and pop culture icon Farrah Fawcett passed away this morning after a long battle with anal cancer.
With a career that spanned three decades, Farrah was best known for her role on Charlie's Angels. Fawcett ultimately left the popular series to pursue roles in film and television that would allow her to stretch her acting talents.
She may have only been an angel for one season, but she definitely made her presence felt.
After her departure, Farrah was replaced by actress Cheryl Ladd, who just spoke to Hollyscoop.com expressing her sadness about Farrah's passing.
“I’m terribly sad about Farrah’s passing. She was incredibly brave, and God will be welcoming her with open arms,” Cheryl told Hollyscoop.
Farrah's former Charlie's Angel co-star Jaclyn Smith also expressed her sadness telling Hollyscoop, “Farrah had courage, she had strength, and she had faith. And now she has peace as she rests with the real angels.”
Kate Jackson added to Hollyscoop: "I will miss Farrah everyday. She was a selfless person who loved her family and friends with all her heart, and what a big heart it was. Farrah showed immense courage and grace throughout her illness and was an inspiration to those around her.
"When I think of Farrah I will remember her kindness, her cutting dry wit and of course her beautiful smile. Today when you think of Farrah remember her smiling because that is exactly how she wanted to be remembered...smiling."
Farrah is survived by her son with Ryan O’Neal, Redmond, and her father James. In lieu of flowers the family has asked that donations to support cancer research be made to: The Farrah Fawcett Foundation
