According to Lee Majors’ manager Denny Bond, the ‘Charlie’s Angels’ star – who lost her battle with cancer last June – had been in secret talks about joining Lee on stage in a Las Vegas production ‘Love Letters.’
The pair – who separated after six years of marriage in 1979 and had been estranged for two decades – would have played two ex-lovers who spend their entire lifetime trying to get back together.
“We had many discussions with Lee and Farrah and we had planned on a Las Vegas opening and doing a Los Angeles charity performance for her soon to be established cancer foundation as the kick-off,” said Bond.
The show would have been produced and directed by Craig Nevius, the controversial filmmaker who is currently being sued by Farrah’s estate over claims he leaked confidential information about the actress to the media.
The filmmaker confirmed he was going to be involved with the play, and says Farrah was very “excited” about the possible reunion.
“‘Love Letters’ was the perfect stage play for the two of them. Lee would have played a conservative, no-nonsense politician who had been in love with his childhood sweethear for decades. Farrah would have played his childhood sweetheart who grew up to be an eccentric, free-spirited artist. Farrah had a lot of ideas. She was excited about the whole thing. So was Lee,” said Nevius.
Although the pair never got the opportunity to work together again, Lee was in contact again with Farrah just before her death.
