American actress, probably best known for the role of Krystle Carrington in "Dynasty," a TV night-time soap that aired from 1981-1989. Tall at 5'8", with a serene beauty, she entered show business through commercials while still in high school. Her first speaking role was a guest shot on "Bachelor Father" opposite John Forsythe, who later played her husband on the "Dynasty" series. She was tapped to play Barbara Stanwyck's daughter in "The Big Valley," a TV series that ran from 1965-1969.

Born in the east, the second of three daughters, she moved to North Hollywood with her family when she was a child. Both of her parents were dancers. To bring her out from her shyness, her parents insisted that she take drama at school.

She was married to her childhood idol, John Derek, 16 years her senior, from 1968-1974, before he left her. From 1978-1981, she was married to Los Angeles Realtor Stan Herman. In her relationship with record producer Richard Cohen, he built a $10 million dream house for her. Evans and 12-year-younger Yanni Chrysomalis, the New Age composer and recording star, began a relationship in July 1989 that lasted close to a decade, ending in January of 1998.

After being diagnosed with idiopathic edema, which caused adrenal gland problems, Evans began investigating alternative healing, delving into Eastern philosophy and nutritional therapy. In 1985, she became involved with J. Z. Knight, the channeler of a 35,000-year-old spirit named Ramtha. She bought a house in Washington state that is 30 minutes from Knight.

She has been described as a "strong, powerful woman" whose problems were in "constantly denying her real personality and with it her great inner strength." Evans did not agree initially, but later conceded that this was correct, that she had "always denied" her own personality and feelings to please others. She credits astrology with helping her get in touch with her "actual self...she is no longer afraid of being alone." In a magazine article she describes herself as "strong, stubborn and tenacious."
