Goodnight, Tanya

Tanya Roberts had “it.”

Maybe it was the smoky eyes, maybe the smokier voice, but the actress, who passed away at 65 after collapsing on Christmas Eve, had a magnetic pull on the camera.

She spent most of her career as a B-movie star, and The Beastmaster, Sheena, and Tourist Trap remain what they were intended to be, enjoyable romps.

Roberts was on the final season of Charlie’s Angels, played a Bond Girl in A View to A Kill — opposite Roger Moore and a devious Christopher Walken — then wrote her swan song on That ’70s Show.

She won’t be forgotten.
