“With my sweet friend @angelcherylladd. No time has past when we are together,” the 73-year-old wrote of her pal, 67. Cheryl also shared the same photo on her Instagram, but she wrote, “So loved see my wonderful friend again.” Take a look at it below!
The pair reunited in the photo 38 years after their iconic show ended. The ABC program aired from 1976 to 1981. Jaclyn played detective Kelly Garrett, Kate Jackson played Sabrina Duncan and the late Farrah Fawcett was Jill Munroe. Once the latter left the show after one season, Cheryl stepped in, playing her younger sister Kris Monroe. In fact, the Las Vegas alum once exclusively revealed to Closer Weekly that she originally didn’t want the role.
“What maniac would try to do that? Aaron [Spelling] asked me to do it, and I said no!” she said, and continued, “I almost got the daughter role on Family. Meredith Baxter and I were fighting for it, and when she got it, I was devastated. Then Aaron, whom I had worked for a bunch of times, asked me to come in to replace Farrah, but I wasn’t feeling it. I wouldn’t even know where to start to do that.”
Eventually Cheryl took the role. “After he spent months looking at hundreds of girls, we happened to bump into each other at a restaurant. I said, ‘I don’t know how anyone is going to pull this off,'” she recalled. “‘I would not know what to play or how to play it. I’d have to do more than replace Farrah — to be something different — and I can be funny.’”
But the legendary TV producer had an idea. “He said, ‘What if you were Farrah’s little sister?’ I thought that was genius and knew I could play her. She would be different and let’s face it, no one can fill Farrah’s shoes. Farrah was huge! I really did look up to her as her little sister. Kris was quirky, funny and allowed to make mistakes.”
