As a Hollywood legend, Joan's life has been the subject of many books before which have detailed the many turns of events she's gone through whether it be in her personal or professional life. But fans will no doubt be looking forward to getting an even closer look at the acting icon's life.

The actress began acting in the 1950s and has won multiple awards throughout a decades-long career in La La Land, so it's no wonder that she's recognised as an icon. She's also considered one of the last remaining stars of the 'Golden Age' of Hollywood.

Joan has had notable roles on the big screen in films such as 1955's Land of the Pharaohs, Esther and the King in 1960, and Empire of the Ants (1970). But she's also adored for her part in the 1980s soap opera, Dynasty, in which she had the starring role of Alexis Colby.

As well as releasing memoirs that reveal fascinating insight into her glittering career, she's also written several novels such as 2002's Star Quality and 2015's St Tropez Lonely Hearts Club.
