It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly three decades since we last watched Dynasty’s Krystle and Alexis fight it out, gawked over the high fashion of the ’80s or gasped in horror at the show’s shock cliffhangers. But the time has indeed passed and the cast members have since moved onto bigger – although perhaps not always better – things…
20. Linda Evans (Krystle Carrington)
Linda Evans made her big break starring as Krystle Carrington, loyal wife of Blake Carrington. For her part, moreover, she was even nominated for a Golden Globe Award five years in a row for the role – although she picked up the award only once, in 1982. And following her run in Dynasty, the actress went on to star in a range of TV movies. Eventually, though, she decided to take a break from thespian life to establish a cooking career and write her memoirs.
19. Joan Collins (Alexis Colby)
Joan Collins played the devious Alexis Colby, a woman who wanted nothing more than revenge on her ex-husband Blake and who wasn’t short of schemes, either. And although Collins was initially supposed to play the role for just six weeks, she proved to be so popular that her villainous alter ego showed up in all nine seasons of the show. Since the end of Dynasty, meanwhile, the veteran star has both kept her hand in at acting and also forged a career as an accomplished author.
