LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: If rumors are to be believed, Linda Evans, the actress known for her breakthrough role on the primetime soap ‘Dynasty,’ had tried to bury the hatchet with her co-star, Joan Collins. Both actresses burst onto the scene with their show in the '80s, and while Evans had made an effort to stop feuding with Collins, it would seem that the latter has “no interest in burying the hatchet.”

It is no secret that the pair never got along much on the sets of the show. Interestingly, just like the actresses, their characters Krystle Carrington and Alexis Colby were also always at odds with each other. Collins had admitted that the pair hit it up with each other and it seems as though their on-screen squabbles had spilled onto their years after the show, snowballing into a feud. An insider has revealed to RadarOnline that Evans is devastated that Collins has carried her feelings with her all these years and that she really admired her co-star.

"Linda had her bad moments with Joan, but she really did admire her," the insider said. "It's eaten at her all these years that Joan carried bad feelings toward her." Despite her well-intentioned call, Evans’ attempts were not well received by Collins. "She tried many times before Joan finally agreed to take her call," the source said. They have also revealed that Evans tried to talk to Collins about how great it would be if the pair would team up for an acting project together- only to be shut down by Collins, who preferred to leave their days of collaboration in the past.

The source has also revealed that Evans believes that the feud was always one-sided, even though Collins had told Evans that she “harbors no ill will toward her.” Collins had opened up about their feud after the release of her book, ‘My Unapologetic Diaries'. Collins had shared that there is a very interesting relationship because they were both on the ‘opposite ends of the spectrum.’

She opened up about the dramatic first scene where their characters were screaming at each other, which she believes to be the first moment when they started to fight with each other. "At the end, she said, 'Oh my God, that was so real. Did you mean it?'" Collins claimed. "I said, 'Linda, it's called acting.' From then on, she felt that 'I didn't like her, and she didn't like me'."
