Charlies Angels

Who is your favorite ANGEL?

See results

Jaclyn Smith as Kelly Garrett

1976 - 1981

Jaclyn Smith was the only angel to stay from start to finish and reprised the role in a cameo in the 2003 film Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. Also in my opinion she was the most graceful and beautiful angel. Kelly Garrett is the most sensitive of the three Angels. However, she is also the street-wise and tough Angel, and miraculously survives countless car chases, kidnappings, chloroformings, explosions, and hostage situations.

Farrah Fawcett as Jill Munroe

 1976 - 1977

Jill is the sporty and athletic angel, and is seen coaching a kids' basketball team, playing tennis, swimming, and rollerskating on the show. Not just a tomboy, she also frequents the model-type covers, once as a playmate centerfold. Farrah was only on the show for one season but seems to have stayed the most well known angel through the years.

Kate Jackson as Sabrina Duncan

 1976 - 1979

Sabrina is known by fans as the Smart Angel, she was a more strategic thinker than the other Angels and acted informally as the brains of the operation. In the Agency conferences, she was the most assertive in dealing with Charlie. In the field, Sabrina tended to take "outside" covers, such as a reporter or city employee while the other Angels would approach a case from the "inside" as decoys

Cheryl Ladd as Kris Munroe

1976 - 1981

 Kris Munroe is the younger sister of former Townsend Agency detective Jill Munroe.  Kris is at most age 24 when she joins the show, as Jill herself was 24 in season one. When Jill left the Agency to become a race car driver, Kris basically shows up for the job. Kris is noticeably less sophisticated than the other Angels, has a stronger accent and seems more gullible. In the first few episodes, she has to prove herself to Sabrina Duncan and Kelly Garrett.As she becomes accepted by her co-workers, Kris becomes more glamorous and loses her "little sis" persona.

Shelley Hack as Tiffany Welles

1979 - 1980

Tiffany is more refined and educated than the others, pledging Kappa Omega Psi in Whitley College, graduating top in her class from the Boston Police Academy, mastering the violin, learning to speak fluent Latin, and even studying in the field of parapsychology.

Tanya Roberts as Julie Rogers

1980 - 1981

Although Angel Kelly Garrett was initially assigned a "streetwise" personality, it faded over time to match Jaclyn Smith's more sensitive personality. The producers jumped at the chance to give the new character of Julie Rogers the tough-talking, rough edges that had been lost and she ended up being known as the sexy angel with an edgy attitude.

      Of the six Angels in the 1970's/ 80's television series Charlie's Angels all six would have been proficient in martial arts as they would have learnt women's self defence techniques during their training as police women. I particularly recall Kelly being able to throttle (pun intended) her male opponent when confronted. There may have been other fighting sequences i didn't see.Sabrina who was portrayed by the gorgeous Kate Jackson already had karate skills that she put to good use in The scarecrow and Mrs King. The new Angels in the two movie remakes did have the trio of super sleuths tackling rogue males and apprehending villains all in a days work and not even a strand of hair out of place afterward.

      I was wondering if all of the Angels were proficient i martial arts as i'm aware of the new Angles having these skills but in the 1970's television series i can only recall Kelly using karate to subdue an adversary.

      Returning to this hub to view any further comment, i thought that it would have attracted quite a response given that Charlie's Angels was critically acclaimed when the first series aired. Right at the onset of the Women's Liberation Movement it was inevitable for television producers to bring strong women of independent means to 'beat men at their own game'. Not only that but beat them up as well. After the initial five seasons, Charlie's Angels influenced 'spin off ' versions where women working as a team were able to take the most baffling cases, track down the perpertrators and bring them to justice. All in a days work!

      i was only a 27 year old unattached male when Charlie's Angels premiered on T.V. in 1976 i think that was. At the time some critic described the series as 'sacharin' which i don't know what that means in terms of systemic language. Women wearing their hair up is a 'turn on' for me.
