Collins, Jackson & Locklear Pay Tribute To 'Gentleman' John Forsythe

JOAN COLLINS, KATE JACKSON and HEATHER LOCKLEAR have paid tribute to late actor JOHN FORSYTHE, who died on Thursday (01Apr10) after a four-year cancer battle.
The trio worked with the TV icon on beloved shows Dynasty and Charlie's Angel.
Collins, who played the ex-wife of Forsythe's Blake Carrington character in Dynasty, called the actor "the last of the true gentleman of the acting profession."
A statement from the British star reads, "I enjoyed my nine years of feuding, fussing and fighting as the Carringtons and I was so glad to have had the chance to reunite with him a few years ago in the Dynasty reunion. He will be greatly missed."
Locklear, who also appeared alongside Forsythe in the Dynasty series, says, "John was a gentleman in every sense of the word... He was a gifted actor who knew the true meaning of being gracious and kind."
And Jackson, who played one of his Angels in Charlie's Angels, tells she has fond memories of trying to avoid him on the set: "I made an effort never to see him when he came in to (record) his voiceover, but I left messages for him and he would leave me a note saying, 'Hi Sabrina, it's Charlie. You'll never catch me!'"
Forsythe voiced the character of detective agency boss Charlie, who was never seen.
Jackson adds, "He had a grace about him that was incredibly awesome... He was wonderful."
