Stephanie Beacham has revealed the best thing about being in a major US TV series like Dynasty or The Colbys - having somewhere to park.
The British actress, who played Sable Colby in the hit 1980s shows, also recalled how she had a vision that God was going to send her to California, and then the next week she was called for an audition for Dynasty.
"I have such fond memories of Dynasty and The Colbys," the 64-year-old said.
"That was a long job. I had my name on a parking bay at Paramount Studios. I do like knowing where I'm going to park. I think one of the nicest things about working in Hollywood is having a parking space next to the studio."
And Stephanie, who has just published her autobiography, said she keeps in touch with her old on-screen adversary Joan Collins, who played Alexis Carrington in Dynasty.
"I saw Joan recently. We did a Snickers ad together. It's terribly funny. Joan's fantastic. It was fabulous getting together again."
