Jaclyn Smith is truly an extraordinary beauty. On top of that, she got married in a Methodist
church where my grandfather was once the pastor! ;-)
Smith was born in Houston, Texas. She found fame, of course, playing Kelly Garrett on "Charlie's
Angels" from 1976 to 1981. (She was the only one of the original trio who stuck with the show. Farrah Fawcett
left after the first season, though she did return for six future episodes. Kate Jackson bailed after the third
season, no doubt incensed that she'd been unable to get out of her "Angel's" contract in order to accept another role she'd
been offered: the lead in "Kramer vs. Kramer", for which Meryl Streep won an Academy Award.) Since then, she's consistently
found work on the small screen, with a few highlights, such as the 1988 version of Robert Ludlum's "The Bourne Identity".
In 1981, she was nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance in the title role of "Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy".
In 1989, a poll of backstage Hollywood workers (such as gaffers and grips) found Jaclyn Smith to be among
the nicest, most agreeable actresses to work with.
