Linda Evans Net Worth
Linda Evans Net Worth: Linda Evans is an American actress who has a net worth of $30 million. Linda Evans was born November 18, 1942 in Hartford, Connecticut. She first gained notoriety for her role as Audra Barkley in the western television series The Big Valley (1965-69), but her huge break came with her role as Krystle Carrington in the 1980s ABC prime time soap opera Dynasty, alongside actress Joan Collins and actor John Forsythe. The series was credited with the first television onscreen 'cat fights' between characters as she and Joan Collins' character, Alexis Carrington, battled it out—to the delight of Dynasty's audience. Her split from husband John Derek, when Derek left her for a then 15-year-old girl (then named Mary Cathleen Collins), was another boost to her national attention-getting, albeit humiliating. The young Mary Cathleen, who later became known as Bo Derek, was often compared to Evans as a 'young' Linda Evans, as the two females were very similar in looks and stature. Evans subsequently married Stan Herman, a property executive and that marriage lasted from 1976 to 1981. In 1989, Evans began a relationship with new age musician Yanni, which lasted until 1998. In a 2011 interview, Evans said she really never had aspirations to be famous—she was instead more focused on becoming a housewife and has always had a huge love for cooking. In 2011, she published her book (memoir) entitled, Recipes for Life: My Memories.
