Christopher Cazenove of Dynasty dies of septicemiaThe 'Dynasty' TV family has lost another member. British actor Christopher Cazenove, who played Ben Carrington on the popular 1980s soap opera, died Wednesday after a losing battle with septicemia, said a family statement. He was 64. The news follows the loss of John Forsythe, who played Cazenove's brother on the long-running show.

Cazenove contracted the blood poisoning condition at the end of February and quickly sought treatment at a London hospital to fend of the deadly infection. Sadly, despite a "valiant fight ... he was overwhelmed," his family said.
