Love Boat Angel

her first Charlie's Angels episode "Love Boat Angels"

Shelley joined the cast of Charlie's Angels in 1979; and her first episode was "Love Boat Angels". There was so much publicity about her being chosen to fill in Kate Jackson's empty slot in the TV series, and everyone was excited to see THE Charlie Girl/Supermodel become an Angel. But fans were disappointed when, in her first episode, she wasn't given much to say or do. Although relatively new in acting, Shelley wasn't clueless about what she was doing. She did go to acting school prior to being in the series; plus, she did pass the auditions, so that means she could handle the material. She just needed a chance to show what she could do.
