•  Raquel Welch, who started out as a sex symbol with roles in movies like Fantastic Voyage and One Million Years B.C., but went on to have a remarkably diverse career in films (The Three Musketeers, The Last of Sheila, Legally Blonde), television (“The Legend of Walks Far Woman,” plus a ton of guest roles in drama and comedy series), and even Broadway (replacing Lauren Bacall in “Woman of the Year” and then Julie Andrews in “Victor/Victoria”), has passed away.  She was 82.
