For Cheryl Ladd, Charlie's Angels was a launchpad to stardom, although replacing Farrah Fawcett was a tall order. The multi-talented Ladd flourished as an Angel alongside Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith, and stayed on the show for its remaining four seasons. Ladd continued to work as a TV actress through the '80s, '90s, and into the 20th century. Still, being one of the stars of TV's hottest action drama in the late '70s leaves a mark. "I don't think people will ever forget I was an Angel," Ladd has said, "anymore than they'll forget Sally Field was The Flying Nun."
