In late 1985, British actress Kate O'Mara joined "Dynasty" amid the show's ratings troubles as part of an effort to refresh the soap with new stories.
You can of course read a lot about Kate's first days in Hollywood and how that year went for her in her autobiography, but here are now a couple of articles about Kate, published at the time.
I absolutely loved Kate on "Dynasty" and wished she had been given more screen time and juicier stories.
For instance, her book about Alexis should have been allowed to hit shelves and cause more damage. Later, we should have seen her dig up some filth on Ben in Australia and return to Denver armed for revenge.
But with all the course-correcting and midseason-shuffling it was never meant to be.
Similar to Diahann Carroll, Kate O'Mara was another great casting choice on "Dynasty" that never truly lived up to its potential, due to the increasingly weak scripts and producers making too many changes at every sign of sinking ratings.
