Joan Collins is looking back at the wild drama behind the scenes of, which rivaled the scripted drama fans saw on the screen.The celebrated English actress and author recently sat down with ET's Matt Cohen, where she dished on her new book,, and opened up about some of the high-profile fights she got into — both when the cameras were rolling and when they weren't.According to Collins, she and co-star Linda Evans — who played Krystle Carrington on the megahit primetime soap — never really got along on set, which lent some authenticity to their on-screen cat fights.«It was a very interesting relationship because Linda and I are opposite ends of the spectrum,» Collins shared. «She loves doing her stunts and I was informed by Gene Kelly when I first came to Hollywood, 'Do not do your own stunts, honey.

First of all, you're putting a stunt gal out of work, and second, it's dangerous.' So many actors have had serious problems and I know a lot of actors today who have got hip replacements and things like that because they're doing their own stunts.»So Collins refused to shoot scenes that would risk her health, while Evans was adamant about doing everything herself, regardless of the risk.The one stunt Collins did do was the famous fight in a pond between Alexis and Krystle, where they threw each other into the water as they fought.«When you see, if you freeze frame, I did go into the water and the water was only about this deep.

It was really scary… and we did several takes,» she recalled. «Then, when Linda went to hit me and the director said cut, he didn’t say cut early enough and she did connect a little bit with my chin.
