Biography

British actress, a gorgeous teen-age model. She made a stage debut in London in 1946 and was on-screen from 1952. Usually cast as a vamp and seductress, her films included "The Stud," "Game for Vulture," and "The Bitch." She took a role in the TV series "Dynasty" in the late '80s, a major starring soap.

Collins had an affair with Warren Beatty (joining the inclusive Hollywood club) and married Anthony Newley in 1962 for seven years; two kids. She married American producer Ron Kass in 1972 after their daughter Katy was born. There was a brief third marriage along the way.

On 8/02/1980, Collins was hit by a car and in a coma for 42 days. She sued People magazine on 5/28/1990 for $5 million for stating that her "greed and outrageous behavior had caused Ion Pictures to abandon the film version of her novel "Prime Time" published in 1988."

In 1999 she released her beauty book, "My Friends' Secrets." One of her pleasures is her granddaughter, Miel, born in 1998, by her daughter Tara Newley-Adam. Miel calls her "Dodo" which was the actress's childhood nickname.

In 2002, Collins announced her engagement to marry 36-year old Percy Gibson with her kids in attendance, Tara, 38, Sacha, 36 and Katy, 29. Percy's mom is eight years older than Joan and suffering from Alzheimer's.
