Profile Bio Text
Farrah Leni Fawcett (February 2, 1947 - June 25, 2009) was an American actress. A multiple Golden Globe and Emmy Award nominee, Fawcett shot to international fame in 1976 due in part to her role as private investigator Jill Munroe in the TV series Charlie's Angels. Fawcett went on to become a critically acclaimed actress, appearing off-Broadway and in highly rated television movies in roles often challenging (The Burning Bed, Nazi Hunter: The Beate Klarsfeld Story, Poor Little Rich Girl: The Barbara Hutton Story, Margaret Bourke-White) and sometimes unsympathetic (Small Sacrifices).
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.
Farrah Fawcett was born in Corpus Christi, Texas, to Pauline Alice (née Evans), a homemaker, and James William Fawcett, an oil field contractor. She was of French, English, and Choctaw Native American ancestry. Fawcett has said that her first name was "made up" by her mother because it went well with her last name.
A Roman Catholic, Fawcett's education was at the parish school of the church her family attended, St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church in Corpus Christi, Texas. She graduated from W.B. Ray High School in Corpus Christi in 1965. From 1966–1969, Fawcett attended the University of Texas at Austin and became a sister of Delta Delta Delta Sorority. She appeared in a photo of the "Ten Most Beautiful Coeds" from the university, which ran in Cashbox magazine. A Hollywood publicist saw the photo, called Farrah and urged her to move to Los Angeles, which she did in 1969, leaving after her junior year with her parents' permission to "try her luck" in Hollywood.
