Joan Collins in 2014
A popular pin-up girl throughout the 1950s and 1960s, by the 1970s Joan's star had begun to wane, until 1981 when she was cast in a struggling new American TV show, Dynasty.
Joining in the second season, Joan played Alexis Carrington, a beautiful but scheming ex-wife of oil tycoon Blake Carrington.
Credited with turning the show around, Joan was nominated for a Best Actress Golden Globe award every year that she appeared on the show, winning in 1983 - the same year that she was nominated for a Best Actress Emmy award.
At the end of the show in 1989, Joan went back to theatre, starring in a revival play of Noel Coward's Private Lives and continued to take supporting roles on the stage and small screen throughout her later career.
Joan has also carved out a role for herself as an author, and to date has sold over 50 million copies of her books, which include memoirs and fiction novels.
