Jaclyn Smith

Kelly Garrett

Green-eyed Breck shampoo girl Jaclyn Smith is a native of Houston, a trained ballet dancer who once taught classes for underprivileged children as part of the Head Start program. Early in her career, Smith got bit parts on The Rookies (also starring her future Charlie's Angels co-star Kate Jackson) and Get Christie Love and had recurring roles on McCloud and Switch. But it was her role as Kelly Garrett on Charlie's Angels, the only Angel to last the entire run of the series, for which she is best known.

She went on to launch a successful clothing line at K-Mart stores and continues to delight audiences as one of the reigning queens of the made-for-TV movie. She played the title role in 1981's highly successful Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, Sally Fairfax in the famed mini-series George Washington (1984) and in 2000 starred in Navigating the Heart, a Lifetime TV movie. In 2002, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and fully recovered. The next year she had a cameo in the big-screen 2003 sequel Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle and went on to garner a two-year recurring role on crime drama The District, as well as appearances on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. She is married and has two children.

Character Bio

Kelly Garrett was abandoned as a small child at the St. Agnes Home for Orphans in Houston. Despite her modest beginnings, she grew up to be a glamorous and sophisticated woman. She claims to have heard every line in the book - most of them while working as a cocktail waitress in Las Vegas and as a flight attendant before joining the LAPD. Though she dates Dr. Alan Samuelson in the first season, she is usually unattached. She drives a Mustang to and from her small canyon home, where she lives with her very large pet poodle Albert. Though she is a skilled PI as well as a sharpshooter, during her five years as an Angel she manages to get shot twice - once in the head.
