Dynasty Casts A New Alexis Carrington

We have come to expect the unexpected from CW’s soap, Dynasty, especially in the casting department.  There have already been three Cristal’s since the show debuted, and now it appears a third Alexis Carrington.

When we last left off, Nicollette Sheridan (Knots Landing and Desperate Housewives) bowed out of the reboot as Alexis; the role originally played on the ABC version by Joan Collins.  When Sheridan last appeared as troublemaker Alexis she had her face burned in the fireplace thanks to Adam (Sam Underwood)! After plastic surgery, it was revealed that she looked just like Elizabeth Gilles, who plays Fallon, thus setting up what we thought would be dual role for the talented Gilles.

However, it looks like their has been a change of plans with the casting news today via Deadline, that actress Elaine Hendrix is now set to play the pivotal role on the series.

Hendrix is known from her work in The Parent Trap, and Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll.  Elaine will also be seen on-screen in the upcoming feature The Country Club, plus Spectrum Originals mystery series Paradise Lost, and the upcoming feature  Adopt A Highway.

Details on how the soap will explain the new look Alexis and what she has been up to are being kept under wraps, but apparently she is back in Atlanta (where the story and show takes place) with some serious scores to settle.

Thank goodness there’s a new face on Alexis if Nicollette isn’t able to come back. Having Elizabeth play her was just too jarring for me. It’ll be interesting to see what happens!

Agreed. Elaine Hendrix is a grade B actress, but so was Joan Collins in her Hollywood heyday. This may serve to boost the show. We’ll see. And with Michael Michele and Daniella Alonso looking so similar-it’s truly difficult knowing if it’s Dominique or Krystle in a scene- this can only help.

She will be a great Alexis!
