Known In The '70s For: Playing Jennifer Pace on the soap opera Search for Tomorrow

Don't buy the fancy name, Morgan Fairchild was born Patsy Ann McClenny in Dallas. And yet that is precisely what has made her so appealing during her whole career: the ability to be a high class dame and a sultry Texas blonde simultaneously. She didn't achieve true stardom until the '80s, with iconic performances on dramatic series Flamingo Road (1980-82) and Falcon Crest (1985-86), but throughout the mid- and late '70s she was an in-demand TV babe, appearing on Kojak, Happy Days, Search for Tomorrow, Barnaby Jones, The Bob Newhart Show, and Dallas.
