Sharon Marie Tate Polanski or Sharon Tate was indeed an actress and model from the United States. As during 1960s, she appeared in tiny television parts before moving on to movies, and she was a regular model as well as cover girl with fashion publications. Tate was recognised as among Hollywood’s most promising rookies after garnering great reviews for her humorous and dramatic acting performances.

Tate screen debut in 1961 as such an extra in Anthony Quinn’s Barabbas. Following that, she starred inside the horror flick Eye of the Devil (1966). Her most well-known role was Jennifer North with in 1967 cult classic Valley of both the Dolls, for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe Award.

She also appeared in her future husband Roman Polanski’s movie The Fearless Vampire Killers that same year. Tate’s final picture, 12+1, was released after his death in 1969.

Tate and four others have been murdered inside the home she occupied with Polanski on August 9, 1969, by members of something like the Manson Family, a cult. She was eighteen months pregnant at the time.

Sharon Marie Tate, the eldest of three daughters borne to Colonel Paul James Tate, a United States Army officer, as well as his wife, Doris Gwendolyn (née Willett), was born on January 24, 1943, in Dallas, Texas. The family has English, Scottish, Swiss-German, and Swiss-French ancestors.

Tate won the “Miss Tiny Tot of Dallas Pageant” at the age of six months, however her parents had no plans for their daughter to pursue a career in show business. Paul Tate was promoted and moved many times during his career. Tate had lived in six locations before the age of 16 and apparently struggled to keep friendships. Her family characterised her as bashful and unsure of herself. People would misread her shyness as aloofness until they know her better, Tate said as an adult.

From September 1955 to June 1958, Tate attended Chief Joseph Junior High School (now Chief Joseph Middle School), then from September 1958 to October 1959, he attended Columbia High School in Richland, Washington.
