US actress Farrah Fawcett has died in a Los Angeles hospital, aged 62, after a three-year battle with cancer. Fawcett rose to fame in the 1970s, starring in the popular TV series, "Charlie's Angels".

Reuters - Actress Farrah Fawcett, the "Charlie's Angels" television star whose big smile and feathered blond mane made her one of the sex symbols of the 1970s, died on Thursday after a long battle with cancer, her longtime companion actor Ryan O'Neal said. She was 62.
 
Fawcett was first diagnosed with anal cancer in late 2006. She died in a Los Angles hospital after being admitted earlier this week.
 
"After a long and brave battle with cancer, our beloved Farrah has passed away. Although this is an extremely difficult time for her family and friends, we take comfort in the beautiful times that we shared with Farrah over the years and the knowledge that her life brought joy to so many people around the world," O'Neal said in a statement.
 
Fawcett's cancer spread to her liver in 2007, proving resistant to numerous medical treatments in Germany and California.
