Farrah Fawcett, who rose to fame as sporty undercover detective Jill Munroe in the 1970s series Charlie's Angels, is remembered by her two former costars, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith. Take a look back at the life of Farrah Fawcett. Kate Jackson released the following statement to Usmagazine.com: "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."
Smith, the other member of the original Charlie's Angels trio, reminisced about her friend as well. "Farrah had courage, she had strength, and she had faith. And now she has peace as she rests with the real angels," she told Us in a statement. See photos of today's top news stories.
