In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Farrah appeared in TV commercials for Noxema shaving cream, Ultra Brite toothpaste, Wella Balsam shampoo, and the 1975 Mercury Cougar (Later in 1978, after achieving TV stardom, she appeared in a series of commercials for her own brand of shampoo, marketed by Fabergé).
Fawcett's first appearance on a TV show was a guest spot on I Dream of Jeannie, this was followed by guest appearances in Owen Marshall: Counselor at Law. She later appeared in The Six Million Dollar Man with Lee Majors, The Dating Game, and several episodes of Harry O alongside the late David Janssen.
Farrah rose to international fame in 1976 when she played private investigator Jill Munroe in the TV series Charlie's Angels (then billed as Farrah Fawcett-Majors) along side Kate Jackson, Jaclyn Smith and John Forsythe as the voice of Charlie. Farrah emerged as a fan favorite in the show, and the actress won a People's Choice Award for Favorite Performer in a New TV Program. Farrah was also a pop culture figure whose hairstyle was emulated by millions of young women and whose poster and T-Shirt sales (See Above) broke records, making her an international sex symbol in the 1970s and 1980s. Farrah left the show after only one season, and as settlement to a lawsuit stemming from her early departure, she appeared three more times as a guest star in each of seasons three and four. Cheryl Ladd replaced her on the show, portraying Jill's younger sister Kris Munroe and Farrah later went on to become a critically acclaimed actress, appearing in highly rated television movies like The Burning Bed, Nazi Hunter: The Beate Klarsfeld Story and Poor Little Rich Girl: The Barbara Hutton Story.
In a 1977 interview with TV Guide, she said: "When the show was number three, I thought it was our acting. When we got to be number one, I decided it could only be because none of us wears a bra".
