Kate Jackson is an American actress and television producer with her most iconic television roles as Sabrina Duncan in the hit series "Charlie's Angels" (1976–79) and Amanda King in the series "Scarecrow and Mrs. King" (1983–87).

The actress was born Lucy Kate Jackson in Birmingham, Alabama, on October 29, 1948. After grade school, she went on to attend the University of Mississippi.

KATE JACKSON'S FIRST MARRIAGE

The first man Kate Jackson married was Andrew Stevens and the union lasted from August 23, 1978, to January 4, 1980.

The man is an American executive film producer, director, and actor whose company has developed, produced, and put together financing for over thirty motion pictures since it became active in 2003.

Stevens and Jackson tied the knot at the Martha's Vineyard home owned by singers James Taylor and Carly Simon. When they first met, Jackson struggled with her status as one of Charlie's Angels.

Even though she was loved by many, she claimed to be "lonely" and "hassled" at the end of the day — then Stevens came along. Jackson said:

"Suddenly there was this adorable man really caring about me, even when I was crying and my hair was all weird. Before we knew what hit us, we were madly, passionately in love."

"The mutual support we gave each other was like a gift for both of us," Stevens also said. The match was near perfect, but it only made Jackson realize how much the show was taking from her. Eventually, she decided that one would have to go, and she knew her life was more precious.

After saying goodbye to the show, Jackson enjoyed a relatively low-profile life with her husband, and the money she had to say goodbye to was a lot. She chose her happiness and truly enjoyed her time with Stevens until their separation in 1980.

KATE JACKSON'S HUSBAND, DAVID GREENWALD

After her split from Stevens, Jackson moved on with business executive David Greenwald, and he became her second husband.

They met about a year after her divorce from Stevens; for him, it was his first marriage. The private ceremony was held in the spring of 1982 at her home in Beverly Hills.

They had a beautiful romance; however, their marriage suffered because Greenwald was an executive for a large New York importing corporation while Jackson had to maintain appearances in LA.

The marriage had them spending a lot of time apart. When Greenwald couldn't take it anymore, he decided to move to Hollywood, leaving the family business of importing to partner with Jackson in some of her productions.

It was a big mistake, and the stress of being together in the same place started wearing them out.

Initially, they decided they would make it work, but after two years, they decided to go their separate ways and divorced in 1984. Speaking about it, Jackson said she was too busy with her career to even pay attention to herself, not to talk of her husband.

WHO KATE JACKSON WAS MARRIED TO?

After her second marriage failed, Jackson decided she had been looking for commitment in the wrong places. Perhaps it was what attracted her to Tom Hart, the owner of a Utah ski-lodge business who became the third man she married.

The two first crossed paths in 1989, a year after she decided she had had enough of the politics in Hollywood. She had been on vacation in Aspen when she spotted Hart at a local restaurant.

She sent him a note through the waitress to get his attention, telling him to reach out to her and that she would be in town for a week. It was the first time she had ever done such a thing, but after surviving a cancerous growth in her breast, there was not a lot that scared her.

Hart was impressed, and the waitress also put in a good word for her, so he and Jackson "got together." They kept seeing each other for almost two years before they got married in 1991.

The ceremony was held at their leased home in Brentwood and attended by friends and family, including Hart's son, Sean, from a previous marriage, and Kate's German shepherd, Bailey. He was attired in a collar of pink flowers.

Sean supported the marriage and served as a ring bearer, but he lived with his mother. Jackson and Hart were thinking of having their own babies, but they never got around to doing that because they divorced in 1993.
