Dynasty star Christopher Cazenove dies

APRIL 8, 2010 - British actor Christopher Cazenove, 66, died yesterday of complications brought about by septicaemia, his family said.

The Old Etonian actor was best known for his role as Ben Carrington in the 1980s soap opera Dynasty.

In a statement released through his agent, his family and girlfriend Isabelle Davies said: "Christopher died peacefully surrounded by loved ones, having contracted septicaemia (a blood disease) at the end of February."

Cazenove, who was previously married to actress Angharad Rees and had a son Rhys, 33, collapsed at his London home in February after suffering migraines on a business trip to the US.

In Dynasty, he played Ben alongside Blake Carrington actor John Forsythe, who died a week ago at the age of 92. Cazenove also played CharlieTyrrell in The Duchess Of Duke Street and starred several times in Judge John Deed.
