==Cheryl Ladd== (born [[Cheryl Jean Stoppelmoor]]; July 12, 1951) is an American actress, singer, and author. Ladd is best known for her role as [[Kris Munroe]] in the ABC television series [[Charlie's Angels]], hired amid a swirl of publicity prior to its second season in 1977 to replace the departing [[Farrah Fawcett-Majors]] who played [[Jill Munroe]], the sister of Ladd's character. Ladd remained with the show until its cancellation in 1981.
[[Ladd]] was born [[Cheryl Jean Stoppelmoor]] in Huron, South Dakota, the second daughter of [[Dolores (née Katz)]], a waitress, and [[Marion Stoppelmoor]] (1929–2001), a railroad engineer. She married fellow actor [[David Ladd]], with whom she had a daughter, [[Jordan]]. She took his surname as her own, which she kept after their divorce.
She has been married to music producer Brian Russell since 1981, and has a stepdaughter, Lindsay Russell. Ladd is a celebrity ambassador for the child abuse prevention and treatment non-profit Childhelp.
Ladd initially came to Hollywood in 1970 to begin a career in music (she was known as "Cherie Moor" when she was the singing voice of Melody on Hanna-Barbera's Josie and the Pussycats animated series). She soon began to land non-singing roles in commercials and episodic television—including guest appearances on shows such as The Rookies, The Partridge Family and Happy Days. The Charlie's Angels series made her an overnight star, and Ladd took the opportunity of her sudden popularity to further pursue her musical interests, guest-starring in musical-comedy variety series and specials, performing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl XIV in January 1980, and releasing three albums, enjoying a Top 40 Billboard Hot 100 single and a Gold record. In September 2000, Ladd starred on Broadway, taking over the title role from Bernadette Peters in a revival of Irving Berlin's Annie Get Your Gun. She played the role until January 2001, when Reba McEntire took over.
Following Charlie's Angels, Ladd remained a familiar face on television and has starred in more than 30 made for television films, including as Grace Kelly, the Philadelphia heiress who became a Hollywood glamour girl and then a European princess, in a biopic that was begun shortly before Kelly's death. She also appeared in a number of feature films such as Purple Hearts, Millennium, Poison Ivy (featuring Drew Barrymore, who later starred in the film adaptations of Charlie's Angels) and Permanent Midnight. Ladd had the lead role in the television series One West Waikiki (1994–96), and made guest appearances in other TV shows such as Charmed, Hope and Faith and CSI: Miami. From 2003 until the show's cancellation in 2008, Ladd played Jillian Deline, the wife of the lead character Ed Deline (James Caan), in 29 episodes of the television drama Las Vegas.
In 1996, Ladd published a children's book, The Adventures of Little Nettie Windship. In 2005, she published Token Chick: A Woman’s Guide to Golfing With the Boys, an autobiographical book which focused on her love of golf. For several years, Ladd hosted a golf tournament sponsored by Buick.
On April 17, 2010, Ladd, along with her co-angel, Jaclyn Smith, accepted the "2010 TV Land Pop Culture Award" for Charlie's Angels.
In 2010, Ladd filmed a TV movie titled Love's Everlasting Courage for the Hallmark Channel, which aired on October 1, 2011. That same month, she guest starred on NCIS in the show's ninth season episode "Thirst" as the love interest of medical examiner Dr. Donald "Ducky" Mallard. In December 2011, she guest starred in an episode of Chuck, playing Sarah Walker's mother
==Biography by Hal Erickson==
Actress/singer [[Cheryl Jean Stopelmoor]] billed herself as [[Cherie Moore]] when she performed as a backup singer on the 1970 Hanna-Barbera animated TVer [[Josie and the Pussycats]]. She reverted to her given name when appearing as a regular on the prime-time programs [[The Ken Berry WOW Show]] and [[Search]] (both 1972), and in various TV guest assignments. Stopelmoor was occasionally written up in fan and industry magazines of the period, more because of her unusual name than her acting skills (often, her last name was longer than the parts she played). Stopelmoor finally became a star when she adopted her married name of Ladd (her husband of many years was actor [[David Ladd]], son of film luminary [[Alan Ladd]]) and replaced [[Farrah Fawcett]] on the highly-rated ABC "jiggle" show [[Charlie's Angels]]. She played blonde angel [[Kris Munroe]] from 1977 through 1981, then concentrated on made-for-TV films, wherein she was permitted plenty of creative input. Ladd's TV movies found her cast as both victim ([[A Death in California]]) and victimizer ([[When She Was Bad]]); arguably her best outing was the title role in the 1983 TV biopic Grace Kelly. She has since returned to series TV from time to time, playing [[Liane DeViller]] on [[Crossing]] (1986) and [[Holli Holliday]] on the syndicated Baywatch wannabe [[One West Waikiki]] (1994). Tirelessly active in civic and charitable endeavors, Cheryl Ladd was at one time Goodwill ambassador to [[Childhelp USA]].

I don't think people will ever forget I was an "Angel", anymore than they'll forget Sally Field was "The Flying Nun".
I practice my golf swing naked.
[In 2000, recalling her first year on Charlie's Angels (1976)] I wasn't overly, warmly received, I wouldn't say that. There was a really interesting dynamic that had occurred between Kate Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith that to this day I really don't know all the details of. There was a camaraderie, and they had success. I think when Farrah left, there was some awfully hurt feelings from Kate and Jaclyn.
