Such sad news. I remember him very well from his commercial days, from General Hospital and, of course, from Dynasty. I always enjoyed him so much. My deepest sympathy to his family. May he rest in peace.

Eliza Bennett Cast as Amanda Carrington on CW’s Dynasty

In the original ABC classic version of Dynasty, Catherine Oxenberg played this key role, which was also played for a time by Karen Cellini, but now comes word that CW’s reboot of the series is adding back into the mix the character of Amanda Carrington.

This time, the British-Carrington will be played by actress Eliza Bennett (MTV’s Sweet/Vicious). And remember, Amanda is the daughter of Alexis Carrington (Elaine Hendrix).

According to TV Line, Bennett will become a series regular and will debut this season and return for season five of the soap.

The log lines for Amanda’s re-emergence in the story share: “The long-lost Carrington relative, born and raised in Europe, arrives on the Carrington doorstep holding a treasure trove of secrets from their past… and hers,  Amanda is smart, confident, and can hold her own against any Carrington who comes at her. By day she’s a savvy lawyer, but by night she’s a bit of a party girl. Ashe has no problem stirring up trouble in a family full of troublemakers.”

So, what do you think about NuAmanda? Excited they have had the character back to the canvas of Dynasty? Comment below.

‘Dynasty’ Reveals ‘Who’s In the Casket’ as Original Cast Member Exits

Friday night’s episode of CW’s Dynasty featured the highly-anticipated reveal of which character was being mourned at the funeral in the season-opener flash-forward.

It turned out that original CW series cast member, Alan Dale (Anders) is the one who exited the series, and who’s character died.  And as viewers learned it was not from exactly from an injury to the rib, sustained in trying to protect Fallon (Elizabeth Gillies) and Liam (Adam Huber) from kidnappers that actually did Anders in, but from a car accident and the pain of it his injures on his way to see Cristal (Daniella Alonso) in the hospital that sent him to heaven. Meanwhile, Cristal wasn’t doing too well either, as she was undergoing experimental treatments for a brain tumor.

The red-herring of who was actually in the casket led viewers to believe it could have been Cristal, Liam, or Culhane (Robert Christopher Riley) and earlier in the season many believed it was Sam (Rafael de la Fuente) or Adam (Sam Underwood), but they later appeared in the flash-forwards of the funeral.

Clearly, Fallon is very devastated by the the loss of Anders.  Earlier in the episode Anders told her, “Nothing’s going to happen to you while I can help it. You’re like a daughter to me.”

Fans took to Twitter on Friday sharing their grief of the beloved Alan Dale being killed-off the series as well with numerous sentiments on the reveal.

So, did you guess it was Anders who was in the casket? Sad to know Alan Dale is off Dynasty? Comment below.
