Linda Evans played "Krystle Carrington" in the legendary TV series Dynasty. The beautiful blonde received countless awards for her performance and became a real fan favorite. To this day, Evans is still considered to have played one of the show's most most popular characters. Let us catch you up on what Linda Evans is doing today.

From 1981 to 1989, the cult series Dynasty told the story of the fierce struggles for economic power between two oil companies in Denver, Colorado. Naturally, it was also about the private conflicts between the families who owned the companies which made the series such a hit.

Linda Evans played the role of "Krystle Carrington", a secretary who was married to businessman "Blake Carrington", played by John Forsythe.
