‘Charlie’s Angels’ Stars Jaclyn Smith, Cheryl Ladd Reunite To Answer Your Questions

Published

In the 1970s, everyone loved Charlie’s Angels. The drama featured three beautiful private detectives working for an unseen Charlie. The show has resonated with fans since its premiere in 1976. Recently, stars Jaclyn Smith and Cheryl Ladd reunited for the first time on The Hollywood Reporter’s It Happened in Hollywood podcast to discuss why the show is still iconic with fans.

Aaron Spelling’s Vision

Smith, the only Angel to star in all five seasons of the hit show, knew the show was special. She credited executive producer Aaron Spelling for his vision. It was his idea to produce a show with a winning formula: three beautiful female PIs working together to solve cases for a faceless boss.

“Really, Charlie’s was Aaron. He liked bright, happy, popping. He said it was ‘mind candy.’ It wasn’t meant to be Shakespeare,” Smith said. “The lighting was not shadows and moody. Get into their faces, get into their eyes, really look at these girls.”

An Overnight Success

The show was an instant success, turning stars Smith, Kate Jackson, and Farrah Fawcett into overnight sensations and sex symbols. Smith recalls, “It’s like you’re a rock star. You don’t go anywhere without being bombarded.”

Smith added that the three original Angels took a lot of heat during the show’s first season. Critics thought the trio were “Barbie Dolls prancing around in pretty clothes.” That’s far from the truth.

“Our characters were emotionally and financially independent,” Smith said. “We were making our own way. We were strong— we did a lot of our stunts. We had each other’s backs.”

The Angels Are Back

In the podcast, Smith and Ladd (who replaced Fawcett in 1977) shared anecdotes from the set. They also discussed the upcoming film reboot, starring Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, Ella Balinska, and directed by Elizabeth Banks. Expect to see the Angels back in action on November 1, 2019.

“What I hope is they keep some of the simplicity of our show,” said Smith. “I think I just want to see the girls work together, believe their friendship. Because I think that is what made our show special.”
