IN MEMORY OF ACTRESS RAQUEL WELCH
The superstar catapulted to fame in the 1960s with "Fantastic Voyage" and "One Million Years B.C."
"Raquel Welch, the legendary bombshell actress of film, television and stage, passed away peacefully early this morning after a
brief illness," her rep, Steve Sauer, said. "The 82-year-old actress burst into Hollywood in her initial roles in One Million
(Years) B.C. and Fantastic Voyage.
"Her career spanned over 50 years starring in over 30 films and 50 television series and appearances. The Golden Globe winner, in
more recent years, was involved in a very successful line of wigs. Raquel leaves behind her two children, son Damon Welch and her
daughter, Tahnee Welch."
Welch starred alongside some of Hollywood's leading men through the years, including Frank Sinatra, Robert Wagner, James Stewart,
Dean Martin and Burt Reynolds.
