Joan Collins - Star Quality - Hardback Book Signed - Genuine and Handsigned

This hardback book has been signed inside by Joan Collins

Joan Henrietta Collins, OBE (born 23 May 1933), is an English actress, author and columnist. Born in Paddington and brought up in Maida Vale, Collins grew up during the Second World War. After making her stage debut in A Doll's House at the age of 9, she was trained as an actress at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) in London. After eighteen months at the drama school, she was signed to an exclusive contract by the Rank Organisation and appeared in various British films.

At the age of 22, Collins headed to Hollywood and landed sultry roles in several popular films, including The Girl in the Red Velvet Swing (1955) and Rally 'Round the Flag, Boys! (1958). While she continued to make films in the US and the UK throughout the 1960s, her career languished in the 1970s, where she appeared in a number of horror flicks. Near the end of the decade, she starred in two films based on best-selling novels by her younger sister Jackie Collins: The Stud (1978) and its sequel The Bitch (1979). Returning to her theatrical roots, she played the title role in the 1980 British revival of The Last of Mrs. Cheyney and later had a lead role in the 1990 revival of Noël Coward's Private Lives. In 1981, Collins landed the role of Alexis Carrington Colby in the 1980s television soap opera Dynasty.

Since the late 1970s, Collins has written several books (including beauty and autobiographical books). In 1988, she followed in her sister's footsteps and published her first novel, Prime Time, which became a bestseller despite critical pans. Notwithstanding a protracted legal battle with publishers Random House in the 1990s, she has continued to write books, fictional, non-fictional and autobiographical. Flamboyant in her personal life and in the roles she pursues, Collins continues to act in theatre, film and television in a career that has spanned more than 60 years.
