Kate Jackson ACTOR


Kate Jackson was born on October 29th, 1948 in Birmingham, Alabama with the birth name Lucy Kate Jackson to parents Ruth and Hogan Jackson.  When she was sixteen years old she began working as a professional model.  After completing her early education at The Brooke Hill School for Girls, she attended college at the University of Mississippi, however she left before completing her degree.  She moved to New York city and began studying acting at the American academy of Dramatic Arts. 
Jackson's career in entertainment began when she was working as a NBC page and also doing summer stock.  Along with becoming a very successful model for Max Factor and Revlon, she was also a highly talented actress and later even worked as a producer and director.  In 1972 she was listed as one of twelve "Promising New Actors" in John Willis's Screen World.
Her acting career began when she was discovered by Paramount Studio's head, Robert Evans who was taken back by her beauty.  Her role that first brought her to the attention of critics and the public was in the franchise, "Dark Shadows" (1970-1971).  She also worked on a number of other television shows such as "Satan's School for Girls" (1973), "Bonanza" (1972), "The Rookies" (1972-1976), "Baby Boom" (1988-1989) and the remake of "Satan's School For Girls" (2000).
Kate's most well known role came in 1976 when she was the first Angel to be cast in "Charlie's Angels".  Her career continued with a number of film roles such as "Making Love" (1982) and the television drama series "Scarecrow and Mrs. King" (1987) which she also co-produced with Warner Brothers through her production company, Shoot the Moon Enterprises.
Her career was highly successful however she has had some disappointments in her personal life such as two bouts with breast cancer as well as finding out that she was actually born with an atrial septal defect (ASD) that she had to undergo open heart surgery to correct.
Jackson has not had great success with men.  She has been married three times throughout her lifetime, first to Andrew Stevens whom she wed in 1978 and divorced two years later.  She then married David Greenwald in 1982 and again this marriage only lasted two years.  Her third marriage was to Tom Hart in 1991 and once again, by 1993 she was divorced.  She has currently not remarried but did adopt a son, Charles Taylor in the year 2000. 
Throughout her career she has earned three Emmy's and four Golden Globe nominations as well as two humanitarian awards for her work with children and animals.  Kate has also had two bouts of breast cancer and is a survivor, therefore she speaks on the importance of mammogram screenings.   

In 2010 it was made public that Jackson would be writing a memoir titled "The Smart One" which will release in 2011.
