Born 1943 in Dallas, Texas, Sharon Tate was an American actress and model, as well as the wife of director Roman Polański.
Hailed as one of Hollywood’s most promising newcomers in the late 1960s, she was revered for her flawless blonde looks and sweet personality, one that seemed to radiate with warmth and a magnetism.
Her work in Don’t Make Waves and The Wrecking Crew as well as her Golden Globe-Nominated performance in Valley of the Dolls had her on the verge of becoming an international star when she was tragically murdered by Charles Manson and his followers in the summer of 1969. At the time of her death, she was eight-and-a-half months pregnant with the couple’s son.
Shahrokh Hatami who was her close personal friend, as well as her favorite photographer shot many beautiful pictures of Sharon from 1965 to her last days of life. And here some of them.
