Lee Majors
TV: North side of the 6900 block of Hollywood Boulevard
Actor
Born April 23, 1939 in Wyandotte, MI

Lee Majors had his first big break on the TV western “The Big Valley” in the 1960s and his last big role as the stuntman at the center of “The Fall Guy” in the ’80s, but it was playing Col. Steve Austin on “The Six Million Dollar Man” from 1974 to 1978 that made him a pop culture touchstone.

Majors played an astronaut, “a man barely alive” after crashing in a test flight vehicle, who was rebuilt with electronics. As the show’s intro stated, “We can make him better than he was before. Better, stronger, faster.” With a new arm, eye and pair of legs, Austin employed his superhuman abilities as a government agent.

Off the screen, Majors had another claim to fame: From 1973 to 1982, he was married to Farrah Fawcett (his second wife, of an eventual four), and with her starring in the hit “Charlie’s Angels,” the two formed a true TV power couple. Fawcett’s “Charlie’s Angels” contract even stated that she had to be home by 6:30 nightly to make dinner for Majors. Though their marriage ended in divorce, when Fawcett died in 2009, Majors called her “an angel on earth and, now, an angel forever.”
