37 Years Later: How The Legendary 'Dynasty' TV Series Actors Look And What They're Up To

Date March 6, 2018 17:16

The American TV series Dynasty aired on АВС from 1981 to 1989, but its true fans continue to watch their favorite episodes even now. The plotline was the struggle of two elite families of oil magnates. The Colorado companies of 'Denver Carrington' and 'ColbyCo' were competitors not only in business but also in personal life. This was a soap opera and therefore, it's no wonder that the whole story was overwhelmed with romantic storylines.

37 years have passed since the first episode aired, which is a huge number in the TV world. Moreover, if a project is still recalled after so many years, then it really was noteworthy. We suggest taking a look at how the main characters of Dynasty are living now.

The actress also participated in Broadway productions. In 2015, she starred in the series The Royals and in 2016, in the film Absolutely Fabulous. Future projects with Collins's participation haven't been announced yet. By the way, she's also the godmother of model and actress Cara Delevingne.

In the 80s, the actress was among the highly-demanded ones, but her career declined over time. In 2004, Heather Locklear worked as a producer and the main character of the LAX TV series. Unfortunately, the project wasn't successful. Heather didn't find the strength to cope with it and got into bad habits. Bad luck seemed to be haunting Locklear, as later in 2017, she got into a car accident but luckily, she got out of it without serious traumas. Her acting career is currently frozen.
