Evans (seen here in 2012) ended up leaving "Dynasty" midway through its final season, with the character of Krystle being written off as lapsing into a coma after surgery. However, she returned for the two-part special "Dynasty: The Reunion" in 1991. Evans' acting career began in the 1960s, starting with a guest spot opposite Forsythe in his sitcom "Bachelor Father." She went on to play several different guest roles on "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet" before finding fame in the Western TV series "The Big Valley" from 1965 to 1969. Evans semi-retired from acting following "Dynasty" and made only occasional television appearances before retiring for good in 1997, with her last role coming in the TV movie "The Stepsister."
