Fawcett finishes cancer treatment
Farrah Fawcett
Fawcett starred in just one full series of Charlie's Angels
Charlie's Angel actress Farrah Fawcett has finished the chemotherapy treatment she began after being diagnosed with a cancerous tumour.

"I am starting to feel better," the 59-year-old told Access Hollywood.

The star, who confirmed she was ill in October, also thanked her fans who she said had kept her "strong".

She now plans to get back to work after the holidays. Fawcett's publicist, Mike Pingel, said: "Her spirits are high, she's feeling good."

Good prognosis

"Her plans are to recover and take the time to heal, and she is also looking forward to the holidays with her family," he added.

He refused to disclose the type of cancer she was treated for, but insisted her prognosis was good.

Fawcett starred in just one series of Charlie's Angels but made guest appearances in later programmes.

She has since appeared in a number of movies and mini-series, including Spin City and The Guardian, securing three Emmy nominations.
