Actress Linda Evans recently appeared at the Brazosport College Foundation’s final Women’s Lecture Luncheon Series event of the year.

Evans has personified beauty and grace to American television viewers for more than five decades, from her role as Audra Barkley on “The Big Valley” to the glamorous Krystle Carrington on “Dynasty” to “Hell’s Kitchen,” the British competitive cooking reality show she won in 2009.

During her appearance at Brazosport College, Evans spoke about aging gracefully and the various life lessons she’s learned along the way. She also took time to answer questions and personally talk to those in attendance.

For her role in “Dynasty,” Evans became one of the most celebrated female television stars of the 1980s. She was nominated five times for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a TV Drama, and won the award in 1982, sharing the honor with Barbara Bel Geddes of rival prime time television soap opera Dallas. Evans won five People’s Choice Awards as Favorite Actress in a Drama Series in 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985 and 1986, and was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead actress in a Drama Series in 1983. For her contribution to the television industry, Evans has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Women’s Lecture Luncheon Series is a series of events intended to help promote cultural enrichment for all women hosted by the Brazosport College Foundation.

Next season’s Women’s Lecture Luncheon Series will feature three more dynamic speakers, including author, philanthropist and breast cancer survivor Kelly Corrigan on Oct. 5; art historian and critic Tina Rivers Ryan on Feb. 15, 2018; and former Green Beret Sniper and patriot John Wayne Walding on April 5, 2018.
