Legendary Hollywood and television star, and best-selling author. Born in London, Joan's stage debut was in Ibsen's A Dolls House at the age of nine. This led to studies at the Royal Academy Of Dramatic Art and, at the age of 16, her first film contract. Since then Joan has appeared in countless films, TV programmes (notably Dynasty) and won numerous awards.
During the '80s Joan moved into the publishing world, with her first being Past Imperfect in 1985. In 1997 she was awarded an OBE for her lifetime contribution to the arts and her continuing charity work.
