The actress was born in Hartford, Connecticut, on November 18, 1942. Evans’ parents were both professional dancers, so it was only a matter of time before she developed an interest in the show business. When Evans and her family relocated to North Hollywood when she was only six months old, it appeared that time had flown by incredibly quickly. She met future celebrities as she grew up and started taking theatre school. She soon began focusing on fully refining her abilities and pursuing a career in acting.
Evans started working in 1960 and kept getting more jobs all the way until the late 1990s. Although she is best recognized for her television performances, she has also worked in a number of films. However, the actress didn’t work for the most of the 2000s and 2010s, with the exception of a few appearances as herself. But in recent years, she staged a little comeback.

Evans first began taking acting classes before she rose to fame as an actor. It was initially a straightforward strategy to aid the aspiring woman in overcoming her shyness. Later, it became apparent that Evans’ love for acting had grown, and she had the talent and commitment to devote herself to it entirely. When she began to succeed in Hollywood, she even had her last name changed from Evenstad to Evans.
Fortunately, a change was about to occur for the hopeful actress. As a result of her perseverance, Evans finally rose to fame for her parts in “The Big Valley” and “Dynasty,” the latter of which she has referred to as her ideal role. Evans recalled, “I was so happy I burst into tears” when she learned “Dynasty” had been extended for another season.
Evans garnered numerous nominations and accolades for her portrayal of Krystle Carrington during her tenure on the television series “Dynasty.” She was nominated every year up until 1985 and won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Drama Series in 1981. She further won the People’s Choice Award in 1982 for Favorite Female Performer in a New TV Program and the Soap Opera Digest Award in 1984 and 1985 for Outstanding Lead Actress.
Evans told ABC News of her “Dynasty Days” that the pressure was “too tremendous.” But once she left, she felt more liberated. It was a lot of fun, she said, to just be herself without any makeup on.
Evans, who is now in her 80s, is still a well-known actress and has recently started performing again. She appeared in “Das Traumschiff,” a German television drama with a voyage and dramatic plots that typically have very joyful endings, in the year 2020.

She eventually gave up looking for job, but in 2019 she made the decision to start looking again. She discovered the “Swan Song” script at this time, and immediately took off for Ohio to start filming her first movie in decades.
“I’ve never been happier in my life,” I said. I’ve built a space that I adore being in. When the world is chaotic, getting away from it all is ideal.
Evans doesn’t seem to be working on any projects, but she has a lot to be happy about. She celebrated her 80th birthday on November 18, 2022, by sharing a beautiful Instagram photo. “This is 80!,” the actress said as the post’s caption. My thankfulness is so profound, and my heart is so full. I appreciate each and every one of your birthday greetings so much! Life is a gift, and so many of you play a significant role in that.
“The number is high, but I view my age as an adventure,” Evans told BUNTE magazine. I’m eager to see what else lies ahead. “I have cherished every moment and every difficulty in my life,” the actress continued. Despite my great suffering, I’m proud of myself.
