Born Sharon Forsmoe on Christmas Eve in 1940 in Sioux City, Iowa, she moved to New York, where she acted and modeled.

She made her film debut in 1959’s Kiss Her Goodbye, then danced on Broadway.

In 1962, Farrell starred on the short-lived NBC newspaper drama “Saints and Sinners,” and appeared with Tony Curtis and Suzanne Pleshette in the comedy film, 40 Pounds of Trouble.

Farrell was a frequent television guest star throughout her career, having appearances on “My Favorite Martian,” “Wagon Train,” “Gunsmoke,” and “The Beverly Hillbillies,” among many other shows.
