After recently revealing the struggles she faced with co-star John Forsythe for equal billing on their hit 80s TV show Dynasty, it now seems that Dame Joan Collins has got her way.
The show has been released as a new edition on DVD, with Joan, 87, featuring on the cover, front and centre.
She stands with co-stars John and Linda Evans, the trio that led the inconic drama, famed for its money-digging, deceit and cat-fighting.
‘Alexis is where she belongs!’ Joan Collins has the last laugh on the new Dynasty DVD cover as she’s featured ‘front and centre’ after famously grappling with co-star John Forsythe for the limelight
Sharing the image to Instagram, Joan posted the caption: ‘This is the new cover for the #dynasty complete series collection on #dvd – finally #alexis is where she belongs #frontandcenter’
In the snap, Joan’s character Alexis Carrington stands in a flowing red dress, hands on hips, with Linda stood behind her on one side as Krystle Carrington and John, as Blake Carrington, on the other.
Joan has frequently discussed her feud with John – who passed away in 2010 aged 92 – and claimed that he always insisted he was billed as the star of the show.
Despite the husband and ex-wives trio making the show famous as a three-piece, John is said to have demanded he was featured in the middle of the two women, at the front, in all promotional material during the show’s run, from 1981-1989.

In 2019 she revealed the true extent of the ‘resentment’ behind-the-scenes of the American show, opening up to Attitude magazine like never before.
‘I’ve been asked this question a million times, and when I was doing it, I would poo-poo it. I’d say, “Oh, no, no!” But yes. There was [a lot of resentment]. And now I know there was because many people have come back to me who were around at that time and said, “They bloody hated you, Joan!”
‘First of all, the fact that I was English, some didn’t like that. This English woman comes in and saves the show. This is what the media said, because the show was about to be cancelled.

Star of the show? ‘There wasn’t a lot of love lost between [many of] us, particularly John, who played Blake,’ Joan said in 2019. ‘John had to have his picture twice as big as anybody else. He had to have more lines than anybody’
‘Even now, when we get together for Dynasty reunions as we did a few years ago, I see an antipathy towards me.’
Of the men she worked with, Joan went on: ‘Also, if you look at some of the things that John Forsythe, Gordon Thompson [Adam Carrington], and even Michael Nader [Dex] said about me in interviews, they were not nice.
‘I have never said anything about it before, but now the time has come. Let’s call a spade a spade.
‘The first scene I did, which was me sitting in the defendant’s box in court, being interviewed by a fabulous actor called Brian Dennehy, and staring at the whole cast who were looking at me. I looked at them and I saw their dislike.

‘I saw, sitting in the audience, John Forsythe as Blake, Linda as Krystle, Pamela Sue Martin as Fallon. Then John James, he was playing Jeff Colby, who I felt an affinity with. He was the only one who gave me the vibe of, “I like you, Joan,” because I felt that the others didn’t.
‘There wasn’t a lot of love lost between [many of] us, particularly John, who played Blake. I don’t know if you’ve seen any of the DVDs of Dynasty – John had to have his picture twice as big as anybody else, even though Linda and I were important.
‘He couldn’t bear that. He had to have more lines than anybody.’
She also revealed in a chat with Jonathan Ross prior to this that she had to fight for a balanced pay.
