Most famous roles of Sharon Tate and how she was about to become the main star : She’s the doe-eyed starlet whose eye-catching face right away conjures up a picture of unspeakable horror.
50 years ago, on a hot summer night model and actress Sharon Tate was on the edge of a new life as an A-list movie star and inside her carrying a new life.
But the heavily pregnant wife of Roman Polanski, a film director was about to have the most important role in a bloody, a real-life horror story.
In the past half-century, Sharon who is 26-years old has featured in more movies and TV documentaries regarding the murder.
While own sister of Tate, Debra, has praised the portrayal of the Aussie star, a lot of critics claim Texas-born Sharon has, once again, been unjustly portrayed as a sexy vixen; rather than the compassionate, clever and talented actress about to take the film world by storm.
Thus who was Sharon, and how did she start her Hollywood story?
Sharon was born in Texas to an army officer dad and entered into the first of numerous beauty contests at just 6 months old by her mother, Doris. She was also crowned Miss Tiny Tot of Dallas and won further tournaments before moving to Italy where her dad was posted in her teens.
