Farrah Fawcett Death Anniversary: 'Charlie's Angels' Actress Died 4 Years Ago Today

Posted: Updated:

Four years ago today (June 25), iconic "Charlie's Angels" actress Farrah Fawcett lost her long battle with cancer at age 62.

Fawcett first captivated audiences with appearances on "I Dream of Jeannie" and "The Partridge Family," though it was her best-selling 1976 poster that turned her into a pop-culture icon.

Fawcett's final project, a video diary titled "Farrah's Story," chronicled her painful battle with anal cancer, a disease she was diagnosed with in 2006. The film drew an estimated 8.9 million viewers, making it the most-watched television program in its Friday night time slot in over a year, excluding the Olympics, according to NBC.
