Jill Munroe was a founding employee of the Charles Townsend Detective Agency. After resigning, Jill became a champion racecar driver. She won the Grand Prix in 1979.[1]

She continued to stay in touch with Charlie after she stopped working for him. She even did one more job for him in 1979. This job required her to go deep undercover and become Damien Roth's lover and get in a fight with Kris and the other Angels. She found the assignment very difficult, and promised Kris she wouldn't accept another one like it.

In 1980, Jill heard about a 12-year-old girl in Phoenix who wanted to be a racecar driver when she growed up, but after being diagnosed with leukemia realized she never would be. Jill made a trip to Arizona to see her.[2]

When last seen, Jill had begun a relationship with Prince Eric, and had made plans to continue seeing him in Europe.

Background

According to Kris, Jill's father was someone who got down on his luck and started drinking, but when he got dried out "he sure was a hell of a guy".[3]

When Kris was asked if she had ever lost a parent or a sibling, she replied that she had lost a friend (implying that both their parents were still alive).[4]

Jill was trained in the Los Angeles Police Academy, and was a member of the LAPD.[5]

Jill had never been to Detroit.[6]

Jill is very good at roller-skating and is also a champion-level swimmer.

Fashion

For the most part, Jill tends to dress as the occasion demands. Despite her California girl image, she is only known to have donned a swimsuit once during a mission, while going undercover as a swim coach.[7]

Covers and Techniques

Jill was skilled at working undercover. She was proficient with handguns and at self-defense.[8] She was a skilled typist.[9] She knew how to rappel.[10] She was comfortable on horseback, even while under fire.[11] She knew how to bake a chocolate cake.[12]

Jill spoke Italian.[13]

Jill could often be unpredictable in both the way she talked (for example, out-of-the-blue asking about a suspect's astrological sign[14]), and acted (for example, crawling over a truck hauling potatoes during a chase, causing Kelly to state she worries about her sometimes)[15]). At times it is unclear how much of this is genuine and how much is an act (at one point, Sabrina mentioned that Jill was supposed to be taking classes to improve her memory, to which Jill replied she forgot to go.[16]).

Fellow Angels

Jill was one of the founding Angels, alongside Sabrina Duncan and Kelly Garrett. She worked as one for about a year.

Jill claimed to be Kelly's best friend.[17]

On several occasions after resigning, she returned to L.A. and worked alongside her fellow former Angels, as well as her sister and (after Sabrina also resigned) Tiffany Welles.

Memorable Quotes

Jill: [talking about driving] 35. I'll never go faster than 35 as long as I live.[18]

Appearances

Jill Munroe was played by Farrah Fawcett in the first season of Charlie's Angels (1976 - 1977). She returned for three episodes in season three and another three episodes in season four.
