Actress Farrah Fawcett Dies at 62

In sad news, television and movie star Farrah Fawcett has died Thursday at the age of 62.

Fawcett had a wide variety of roles in the last four decades, but in recent years has suffered from cancer.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Farrah Fawcett, whose luxurious tresses and blinding smile helped redefine sex appeal in the 1970s as one of TV’s “Charlie’s Angels,” died Thursday after battling cancer. She was 62. The pop icon, who in the 1980s set aside the fantasy girl image to tackle serious roles, died Thursday shortly before 9:30 a.m. PDT in a Santa Monica hospital, spokesman Paul Bloch said.
