RIP Kate.
She also did an arc as Patsy's sister on Absolutely Fabulous.
Wonderful comedic timing.

My 4th grade bbf's mom used to tape on the vcr Dallas and Dynasty during our Friday night sleepovers, then we'd make popcorn and homemade french fries and watch them all under an afghan on the sofa and fast forward the commercials.

My 4th grade bff's mom was ahead of her time.

RIP, Kate.

Me too, Vera. Me too. *rubs eyes* I was about to offer Ellen Page refuge from the popos. Glad I don't have to smuggle anyone to Cuba today. RIP Kate O'Mara

She was also the Rani, Queen of Phantasmagoria, during Colin Baker & Sylvester McCoy's terms as Dr Who. Anyone know if she was related to the Corrs?

Those were the days! Dynasty and Falcon Crest. I think Dynasty gave me rich/celeb fascination from watching as a school aged kid. Joan Collins was THE diva betch you loved to hate.

RIP Kate, so lovely.

I loved Dynasty! The clothes, the hair, the cat fights. It was trash TV at its best. Was her name Sable on the show? She was a beautiful woman.

She was also in some fantastic old Hammer horror films; Horror of Frankenstein and Vampire Lovers. R.I.P.

Basil said...

Her name was Caress on the show. Oh she was a beauty, and she was also great as Patsy's sister on Abfab.

Would have liked so see her play the Rani at least one more time. Crap.

I too would have loved her to return as The Rani, and yes, one of Hammer's Glamour Girls. I have been a fan since I saw her before I was 5 in an episode of The Persuaders!.
RIP Kate, thank you for entertaining so many people.

I would say she was known for many other things than Dynasty. Playing the part of Jackie...Patsy's sister on AbFab....and playing The Rani on Doctor Who. Now those are good parts! ;-)
