Kate Jackson      

Actress & American Heart Association Spokeswoman

Over the past three decades, one actress has embodied the constantly changing roles of women in society through her own roles in a record five TV series. From young ingénue to single working mom, from private eye with two partners to super spy with two kids, Kate Jackson has consistently brought to each of her roles a combination of beauty, brains and talent.

Jackson will forever be known as one of the original Charlie's Angels. However, even before she came to that legendary series, Jackson was popular from her roles on the cult classic Dark Shadows, Aaron Spelling's early hit The Rookies, and from the television show Scarecrow and Mrs. King. Recently, she began yet another new chapter in her career: she stepped behind the camera for the first time to direct an episode of Showtime's Dead Man's Gun.

Now, Jackson adds spokesperson for the American Heart Association’s Power of Love fund-raising campaign to her resume. She knows firsthand how important it is for women to learn about heart disease. Her mother had heart problems, and at age 45, she herself underwent heart surgery to correct a hole that had gone undetected since birth. Thanks to surgery and a lifetime of healthy eating and exercise, Jackson now has a perfect heart. While researching heart disease for herself and her mother, she learned that it’s the leading killer of women, yet many women don’t realize they are at risk.

Jackson is working with the American Heart Association to raise awareness and raise funds for educational programs and heart disease research. She is a wonderful role model for women, exercising regularly and watching her diet. To stay healthy she uses a treadmill or stationary bike four times a week for 45 minute sessions, and enjoys hiking, skiing, and working out with weights. Jackson has found that limiting fat and eating plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, and fish also helps her keep fit and feel great.
