DYNASTY Confirms Cristal Swap With A Twist; Ana Brenda Contreras Joins The Cast

So it is official.  Nathalie Kelley will not be returning to season 2 of CW’s Dynasty.  The actress revealed it herself in an interview with E! News that shocked fans of the show, but at that time there was no official comment from the show. Now we know why!

This morning at the CW’s executive session at the TCA summer press tour, it was revealed that Kelley’s exit is all part of a soapy twist!

In story, Cristal was last seen in the season finale of season one in dire circumstances… she was shot, and then trapped in fire.  Enter telenovela star, Ana Brenda Contreras who is joining the cast for season 2 as the real Cristal Flores! .

CW president Mark Pedowitz shared as to the reason for the recast: “It’s a wild soap, these are things you do on a soap.”  He said the decision to reveal a different Cristal was made last midseason.

Pedowitz also noted: “We have plans for other characters too.  (Showrunner) Sallie (Patrick) has fun twist and turns in store.”

So, what do you think of the plot twist which ushers out Cristal 2, but bring in the original Cristal 1?  Comment below.

This will be interesting to watch play out! I love this show and Nathalie Kelley was amazing but I will give this girl a chance. While we are talking new characters can we bring on a. The real Adam and b. Amanda Carrington? Marci Miller (soon to be ex-Abby, Days) or Chloe Lanier (soon to be ex-Nelle, GH) would both be great choices!

I am glad they aren’t killing off the character and this might be interesting. Can’t wait for the show to come back on and explain all of this.

Really? So unnecessary! Recast a main character?

So Ana Brenda Contretras is the original Cristal then why wasn’t she seen in the season 1 but season 2 rather. Anyway I love to see her here coz she’s my favorite actress in the telenovela series.

I really liked the Cristal played by Natalie Kelley and am not happy with the twist. I don’t think I will be watching now.

It’s kind of a head-jerk to me. Nathalie Kelley was great as Cristal so I don’t understand why they’re calling Anna Brend Contreras the “real” Cristal. I mean, Sami, her sister and brother-in-law; none of them ever mentioned that she looked different from the “real” Cristal. Will wait and see, I guess.

Maybe Cristal was kidnapped half way through the season and given plastic surgery so if she ever resurfaced it would be hard for her to convince others that she was Cristal and that the imposter wasn’t? Have to wait and see how it pans out!

Sounds like the show is reversing course on the character and is trying to make it seem like it was all part of the plan when it clearly was not. Treating your viewers like they’re dumb is never a good idea.

Maddison Brown Joins ‘Dynasty’ As Kirby Anders

Another familiar character to longtime Dynasty fans has been cast for its upcoming second season; that of the very troubled, Kirby Anders.

In the CW reboot, newcomer Maddison Brown has nabbed the role, originally played in the ABC version by Kathleen Beller.

According to EW.com, the character description reads: “Kirby grew up in the staff’s living quarters with her father, estate manager Joseph Anders, and sides more with the downstairs occupants than the upstairs.  She has a fraught history with the Carringtons, specifically a tempestuous relationship with Fallon that was the reason for Kirby’s exile from the Manor years ago.  And while she returns to Atlanta to make amends with her father, she will certainly continue wreaking havoc on the Carringtons.”

Brown is listed as a series regular for the new season.

Dynasty returns with all-new episodes on Friday, October 12th at 8PMEST.

So, what do you think of Kirby being back on the canvas against the Carringtons? Comment below
