Dame Joan Collins, who turned 89 on May 23, 2022, has enjoyed a long and distinguished acting career spanning five decades. She has accomplished so much in her life, from on-screen acting to publishing autobiographies.


Joan Collins launched her career in the late 1950s, winning numerous awards along the way, including Golden Globes and Emmys. Her role as Alexis Colby in the 1981 series "Dynasty" made her a Hollywood icon.

Collins has achieved a great deal as an actress, but being a mother is her pride and joy. She is a proud mom of three wonderful adult children. Learn more about them here!

The Hollywood star has three children - daughters, Tara and Katyana, and son, Alexander. The veteran actress shares her equally-talented children with her two former husbands.

Tara and Alexander are Collins' children with her late ex-husband, Anthony Newly, who was an actor, brilliant singer-songwriter, and filmmaker. Newly passed away in 1999.

Meanwhile, Katyana is Collins' daughter with the late businessman, Ron Kass. Kass, who died in 1986, used to work in the music industry and was the former record executive of the iconic band, The Beatles.


Newly and Kass are two out of four of Collin's famous ex-husbands. She married late Irish actor Maxwell Reed in 1952 and later divorced him in 1956.

Later on, she found love with Swedish pop singer Peter Holm, whom she married in 1985. Unfortunately, they split up in 1987. At present, Collins has been happily married to Percy Gibson since 2002.



Collins' children all share a passion for arts and entertainment. Born in 1963, Tara is a talented writer, broadcaster, and producer who dabbled in acting like her famous mom.

When she was six years old, Tara acted in the 1969 film "Can Hieronymus Merkin Forget Mercy Humppe and Find True Happiness?" with her brother. She appeared in the documentary "Celebrity Naked Ambition" in 2011, her last stint as an actress.


Though the 58-year-old TV presenter has no plans to return to acting, she says that all her experiences in filmmaking have helped her grow as a person.

Alexander, 56, has pursued a successful writing career and is a published author and teacher. He is also known as "Sacha," his alter ego in the world of arts.


Regarded as a premier contemporary portrait artist, Alexander is the man behind renowned portraits of Gore Vidal, Billy Wilder, Christopher Reeve, Oliver Stone, and Steven Berkoff.

Meanwhile, Katyana, the youngest of the siblings, has pursued an acting career. At 49 years old, the showbiz royalty's acting credits include "The Optimists of Nine Elms" in 1973.

Collins raised her children successfully despite them having different fathers. She has gushed not only about her talented children but also about her granddaughter Ava Grace.

Ava Grace is Alexander's only daughter with Angela Tassoni. The gorgeous teenager bears a striking resemblance to her iconic grandmother.

On Instagram, Collins shared a rare side-by-side picture of herself and her stunning granddaughter. Both donned white outfits adorned with beautiful accessories.

"Looking a lot like me at 20," the veteran star said of Ava's beauty. Fans also swooned over the future star and hoped that the teen would grow up to be as beautiful as her grandmother.
