July's Space Babe is the late Farrah Fawcett, who we're honoring for several memorable roles from the Space: 1970 era. The stunning feather-haired blonde was a pop culture icon of the 70s, and graced several genre films and television shows with her beauty, presence and talent.
Her role as Holly in the 1976 feature, Logan's Run, was small but star-making, and she also made strong showings on several episodes of her then-husband's TV series The Six Million Dollar Man (most notably in the 1974 episode, "The Rescue of Athena One," in which she played NASA's first female astronaut). In 1980, she co-starred in Stanley Donen's sci-fi gothic, Saturn 3, as Alex, a sexy space scientist, lover of colleague Kirk Douglas (lucky guy), and the object of obsession for both a psychopath (Harvey Keitel) and his equally deranged robot.
Fawcett's life and career was something of a roller coaster, with triumphant highs and tragic lows. Although initially typecast as a lightweight, airheaded bimbo, she eventually proved herself both a formidable dramatic actress and talented comedienne. In the 1970s, she was married to another Space: 1970 icon, Lee Majors, but they divorced in the early 80s. Sadly, she passed away in 2009 from cancer at a too-young 62.
