Farrah Fawcett, the star of "Charlie's Angels" who has been fighting a nearly three-year battle with cancer, died Thursday at the age of 62.
She died at 9:28 a.m. PT in a Santa Monica hospital.
In 2006, the Hollywood golden girl was diagnosed with anal cancer, and has waged a public battle with the disease ever since.
Fawcett became a television star when she burst onto the scene in 1976, playing one-third of the female crime-fighting trio in "Charlie's Angeles."
She left the show after one season and starred in a film, "Somebody Killed Her Husband," which was a flop. She played more serious roles in the 1980s and 1990s, and won critical praise playing an abused wife in "The Burning Bed."
Barbara Walters, who had been in constant contact with Fawcett's family, said Thursday morning that Fawcett would likely not make it through to the end of the day.
"She's had her last rites," Walters told ABC's Good Morning America.
