Sable Colby Delivers a Smack-down to Fat Opera Chicks

Joan Collins (l) as Alexis & Stephanie Beacham (r) as Sable
mid-80s Dynasty glamour.
"Stephanie Beacham might be playing the legendary Maria Callas in her latest play, but she has an admission to make — she’s not much of an opera buff. ‘I can find opera the most fabulous evening I can have or one of the ­silliest,’ says the ex-Dynasty star, 63, who is touring in ­Terrence McNally’s Master Class, which is inspired by singing lessons Callas gave in the Seventies. Adds Stephanie: ­‘Seeing a fat woman ­singing and pretending to be 16 years old does not move me — unless to tears of laughter.’" [Source]

Sabella "Sable" Scott Colby (Stephanie Beacham (original cast), 1985-1987)
British-born art gallery owner, wife of Jason, sister of Francesca and mother of Miles, Monica, and Bliss. The first cousin of Dynasty's Alexis Carrington Colby (Cecil's widow), Sable is protective of her family but vengeful when Jason casts her aside for Francesca. Sable and Alexis share a rivalry hinted at on The Colbys but further explored a number of years later in Dynasty. [Source]
