Linda Evans was born on November 18, 1942 in Hartford, Connecticut, the second of three daughters to prominent dancers Arlene and Alba Evenstad.
The family moved from Hartford to Hollywood when Evans was six months old, where she attended Hollywood High School.
In an effort to overcome her chronic shyness, she enrolled in acting classes, which exposed her to drama.
Evans’s first guest-starring job was in 1960, on an episode of “Bachelor Father” with John Forsythe, with whom she would subsequently co-star on “Dynasty” more than two decades later.
She also starred in a number of episodes of “The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet” between 1960 and 1952, as well as episodes of “The Lieutenant” and “Wagon Train.”
The character of Audra Barkley in the western television series “The Big Valley” brought her to prominence. She portrayed the character from 1965 until the series concluded in 1969, although she was only a semi-regular cast member for the latter two seasons.
John Derek, an actor and photographer, persuaded Linda to handle one of his cameras on New Year’s Eve 1967, when he was hired by Evel Knievel to capture his motorcycle jump over the fountains at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.
Evans was the one who captured the iconic photographs of Evel Knievel’s catastrophic fall when the jump failed; as a result, he spent 29 days in a coma.
Throughout the 1970s, she continued to primarily appear in guest appearances on detective-themed television series, such as “The Rockford Files,” “Mannix,” “Harry O,” “Banacek,” “McCloud,” and “McMillian & Wife.”
She began starring in the drama series “Hunter” in 1977, but only 13 episodes were produced. Evans’s breakthrough role was as Krystle Carrington in Aaron Spelling’s 1980s ABC prime time soap series “Dynasty,” starring alongside Joan Collins and John Forsythe.
“Dynasty” was attributed with the first on-screen “cat fights” between characters, when her character and Joan Collins’ Alexis Carrington battled to the pleasure of the audience.
The shoe was reported to be a response to the hit CBS television series “Dallas.” During the 1984-1985 season, the most popular American television programme was “Dynasty.”
Evans won a Golden Globe for her performance in 1991 and was nominated annually for the remainder of the show’s run. Additionally, she earned five People’s Choice Awards and the Soap Opera Digest Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in 1984 and 1985.
Evans left “Dynasty” in 1989, four months prior to the conclusion of the series.
After leaving “Dynasty,” Evans largely withdrew from acting, sporadically making TV appearances and appearing in infomercials, instead devoting her time to fitness and establishing a small fitness centre chain.
In the 1990s, Evans hosted infomercials for the facial muscle-toning mask Rejuvenique. In the 1980s, she had previously authored “The Linda Evans Beauty and Exercise Book.”
In 1991, she reprised the character of Krystle in the television miniseries “Dynasty: The Reunion.” Following this, Evans acted in three made-for-television films in the 1990s before retiring in 1997.
She reunited with her “Dynasty” co-stars for a reunion documentary titled “Dynasty: Catfights and Caviar.” Evans later played alongside her former “Dynasty” nemesis Joan Collins in the drama Legends.
In 2009, Linda featured on the British television show “Hell’s Kitchen” and won while working under Michelin-starred chef Marco Pierre White.
Evans stated in a 2011 interview that she never aspired to be famous; instead, she concentrated on becoming a housewife and has always had a passion for cooking. She published her memoir entitled “Recipes for Life” in 2011.
In her late teens, Evans was engaged to Patrick Curtis, but the couple broke up. Her first marriage occurred in 1968 to John Derek. They broke up on Christmas Day, 1973, when Derek abandoned her for a 16-year-old girl (then named Mary Cathleen Collins).
Their dramatic breakup added to her national notoriety, although it was humiliating.
Young Mary Cathleen, who subsequently became known as Bo Derek and was 30 years younger than John, was sometimes likened to Linda Evans as a ‘younger’ Linda Evans due to their striking resemblance in appearance and stature.
John and Bo first met when he cast her in his 1973 picture “Fantasies,” which was filmed in Greece over 10 days.
So that John would not be charged with statutory rape, he briefly returned to the United States to leave Linda and then relocated to Germany with Bo until her 18th birthday.
Evans then wed property executive Stan Herman, and their union lasted from 1976 until 1981. Evans briefly dated “The Big Valley” co-star Lee Majors after her divorce from Herman.
Evans’ connection with new age singer Yanni began in 1989 and continued until 1998. Evans was arrested in May 2014 for driving under the influence of a prescribed medication.
Real Estate Owned By Her
In 1981, Linda purchased a property in Beverly Hills, California, for $600,000. This is equivalent to almost $1.7 million in current dollars.
After renting this residence for numerous years at up to $15,000 per month, she placed it for sale in 2010 for $3,3 million. Dolly Parton rented the residence for over nine years. A year later, she ultimately accepted $2.7 million.
At the height of “Dynasty,” Linda purchased a lakefront property in rural Washington. When the show concluded, she moved to her home full-time. She later sold the lake house and purchased a 70-acre property in the Olympia, Washington area.
