Mr. Forsythe starred in three television series, as Bentley Gregg on “Bachelor Father,” as the sexy telephone voice of Charlie in “Charlie’s Angels” and as Blake Carrington in “Dynasty.”
This was guilty TV viewing at its best and the classic gave us cat fights and the ultimate prime time bitch, Joan Collins. However, the center of the universe in the show's fictional take on the Colorado oil business was Blake Carrington (John Forsythe). Dynasty was the ultimate 80s night-time soap - forget Dallas despite a much longer run.
