I was so sad to read that Tanya Roberts has passed away at the age of 65. I always called her the "Underrated Angel," because I don't feel like she was appreciated enough during her short stint on Charlie's Angels, but I thought she was really great. What sad news. I adore her. pic.twitter.com/feCbwf05Yk— Amanda Reyes (@madefortvmayhem) January 4, 2021
