      Veteran movie and television actress Sharon Farrell enjoyed her longest stint as a cast member on the original tropical cop drama series "Hawaii Five-O," but also appeared on such TV staples as "Wagon Train," "Gunsmoke," "Dr. Kildare," and "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.." Her career began in 1959 and took off three years later when she landed the recurring role of Polly Holloran on "Saints and Sinners." When she transitioned to feature films in 1968, Farrell found work alongside such leading men as Kirk Douglas, Steve McQueen, Dennis Hopper, and Peter O'Toole. She costarred with McQueen in the Oscar-nominated "The Reivers," adapted from the novel by William Faulkner. In the '70s she began making more TV movies before starring in the horror movie "It's Alive" in 1974. After a string of appearances on various TV series, she played the recurring role of Detective Lori Wilson on the popular "Hawaii Five-O" from 1977 to 1980. In 1980, she had supporting parts in two well-received films, the drama "Out of the Blue," starring Dennis Hopper, and the Golden Globe-winning actioner "The Stunt Man," starring Peter O'Toole in an Oscar-nominated performance. In the '80s and '90s, Farrell continued to play small and supporting roles in various B films. Her last starring role was in 1995 as Ma Samuals in the drama "A Gift from Heaven." Sharon Farrell died on May 15, 2023 in Orange County, CA at the age of 82.
