Former Dynasty star Kate O'Mara has died at the age of 74, her agent said.

 

 

The British actress was best known for her role as sister to Joan Collins' (Alexis Colby) in the US soap.

 

LISBON - She also had prominent roles in the '80s series Howards' Way and Triangle, and in Doctor Who.  Her agent said she died in a Sussex nursing home following a short illness. He praised her "energy and vitality" and her "love for theatre and acting".

 

 

O'Mara's first television roles were in the 1960s, but she came to public attention playing the 

manipulative Cassandra "Caress" Morrell in Dynasty. Co-star Joan Collins tweeted: "Tragic news about Kate O'Mara , we had great fun on Dynasty when she played my sister Caress... RIP." O'Mara played a ruthless businesswoman in BBC drama Howards' Way and was briefly a regular on the North Sea ferry drama Triangle. She also appeared in Doctor Who, opposite both Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy, as renegade Time Lord The Rani - a role she said she would love to return to.

More recently she had appeared in ITV soap Benidorm and a 2012 stage adaptation of Agatha Christie's Death On The Nile. One of her final public appearances saw her hosting An Evening With Kate O'Mara in London last October.

Her son Dickon died last year. The actress last posted a message on Twitter on 17 March.(Francisco Martins).
