A former Bond girl and "Charlie's Angel" who was typecast for her physical attributes, actress Tanya Roberts became something of a cult icon thanks to feature roles in "The Beastmaster" (1982) and "Sheena: Queen of the Jungle" (1984), only to relegate herself to erotic thrillers that bordered on soft-core pornography in the early 1990s. Throaty and lithe, Roberts exuded a sexuality that was innate and allowed her to land roles as superficial characters in a variety of low-budget films and television movies, before she hit her stride by taking over for Shelley Hack on the popular "Charlie's Angels" (CBS, 1976-1981) for its final season. Despite her likeability, the iconic show hit a low point in the ratings and was summarily canceled. Undeterred, Roberts gained cult status in "The Beastmaster" and "Sheena," before landing what could have been a career-altering role as the Bond girl in "A View to a Kill" (1985). Unfortunately, the last 007 movie starring an aging Roger Moore was considered one of his worst and Roberts was criticized for her character's lack of depth. By the late 1980s, she began treading water in steamy thrillers like "Night Eyes" (1990) and Deep Down" (1994), before she surged once again as the foxy, free-thinking mom Midge Pinciotti on "That '70s Show" (Fox, 1998-2006). Though she had to leave due to her husband's terminal illness, Roberts proved that she was capable of delivering a quality performance on a critically acclaimed project.
