Dynasty's Moldavian Wedding Cliffhanger Aired 30 Years Ago – Where Are the Stars Now?

Originally posted 05/15/2015 05:20PM

On May 18, 1985, Dynasty concluded its fifth and highest-ever-rated season with a cliffhanger to end all cliffhangers: the Moldavian wedding massacre.

Amanda (Catherine Oxenberg), long-lost daughter to Alexis (Joan Collins) and Blake (John Forsythe), is marching down the aisle, soon to wed Prince Michael (Michael Praed), of the European nation of Moldavia.

British actress Kate O'Mara, best known for her role on the 1980s soap opera Dynasty, died Sunday at the age of 74, her agent said.

Phil Belfield said O'Mara died in a nursing home in southern England after a short illness.

The actress, who began her television career in the 1960s, became a household name for playing Cassandra "Caress" Morrell, sister to Joan Collins' Alexis Colby, on Dynasty.

In Britain she is often remembered for her role in Triangle – a soap opera set aboard a North Sea ferry that is often cited as the worst piece of British television.

She also appeared in the original run of British series Doctor Who and BBC drama Howards' Way. In the 1990s she starred in the comedy show Absolutely Fabulous with Joanna Lumley.

More recently she appeared in a 2012 stage adaptation of Agatha Christie's Death on the Nile.

She is survived by her sister, actress Belinda Carroll.

Joan Collins Disputes Racy Passage in Shirley Jones's Autobiography

Dynasty star Joan Collins has reportedly won her defamation dispute with actress Shirley Jones, who claimed that a dinner date involving their husbands nearly turned into swinger party.

The Partridge Family alum, 79, has agreed to remove Collins's name from her new book Shirley Jones: A Memoir, after Collins, 80, accused Jones of libel.

In the book, Jones and her then-husband Jack Cassidy were at the home of Collins and Tony Newley for dinner. Afterwards, Newley proposed they all get naked and watch pornography. "It was clear what Tony was leading up to – swinging," Jones, who turned down the offer, writes.
