Joan Collins portrayed Blake Carrington’s cunning ex-wife, Alexis Carrington Colby — and later Alexis Morrell Carrington Colby Dexter Rowan. Her presence shook up the second season of Dynasty, giving it that extra spice it needed to become a success. After the show ended in 1989, Collins continued to work steadily as an actress and also picked up writing, eventually establishing herself as a successful author. She recently guest starred on “The Royals” as The Grand Duchess Alexandra of Oxford. Currently, Collins has been linked to “In Bed with the Duchess,” where she portrays the historical figure Wallis Simpson. Simpson was the wife of King Edward VIII, who abdicated his throne due to the controversy their relationship caused.

Al Corley was Steven Carrington, Alexis and Blake’s third son in the first two seasons of the show, but was reportedly dismissed for publicly bad-mouthing the series.

Corley reprised his role in the 1991 TV movie “Dynasty: The Reunion.” He has continued to act steadily since then but has not been cast in another role quite as noteworthy as Steven Carrington. Corley also sings and is a producer with a hit single from 1984 called “Square Rooms.”
