a writeup on Shelley from 1979
When Shelley began filming her first episode for Charlie's Angels, "Love Boat Angels", many unfortunate incidents plagued the set. In fact, the cast and crew's plane trip to St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands wasn't smooth. They encountered plane problems, bad weather, a strike, missing luggage and really bad sunburn. "I didn't realize it was going to be this hard," Shelley was quoted saying, "Nevertheless I'm not going to let this put me off wanting to be an Angel." She was determined to make a success out of her new opportunity.
