Poor child. Claudia was such an uninteresting character. They paired her with everyone but Fallon and she still never got legs. When they ran out of ideas they’d make her Kimberly/Melrose crazy. They often ran out of ideas.

You are hilarious but it’s so true. The character and actress were dishwater dull and back then if you didn’t record it on the VCR there was NO FF PERIOD!!

This is a reboot though. Who knows, maybe they are aware how paper thin boring she was and they’ve made some much needed changes to her character and her story. I’m personally reserving judgment until I’ve at least watched the first episode.

Good for her but Dynasty should had been a continuation of the original instead of a reboot…been there done that…hope it goes for her sake and all but i have fond memories of the original and wont be watching the remake!!!

I agree, wish they went the Dallas route of continuation, except for the telenovela they tried to turn it into and hopefully they would have someone with a strong sense of the history of the show.

I like Brianna, but I don’t know about the reboot.

Of all the characters NOT to bring back for the reboot, Matthew and Claudia Blaisdel (and daughter Lindsay) would be at the top of my list.

I liked the original Dynasty and the actors and actresses. Not interested in the new one at all!! It will never come close to the original. Because no John Collins, Linda Evans, Etc. Need I say more.

I find this reincarnation of Dynasty to be so confusing. They aren’t picking up where it left off. They aren’t going back in time to the beginning. It doesn’t make sense.

When I faithfully watched the original “Dynasty,” I was always Team Krystle, even though I appreciated the entertainment value of the work of Joan Collins as Alexis. Further, I was also Team Claudia! As played by Pamela Bellwood, Claudia was sensitive, fragile, and dynamic — an unsung heroine of the show. I am glad this important character will be part of the reboot. I suspect that Brianna Brown will do a fine job.

I completely agree with you about Claudia. Very well said. She was always one of my favorite characters.

James…I get what you’re saying here, Brother. I really do. But, remember…the original Claudia (originally played by Pamela Bellwood) was truly ONE OF A KIND!!!!! So, therefore, Brianna Brown better look like bringing her A-GAME (or whatever) to the Dynasty reboot.

Just saying……….

Later, Brother.

Whoa!! That Claudia chick was whacked! This one has good experience at playing a nutjob. But this “reboot” is going to tank after one season. It is not focusing in on any of the fun and frivolity of the original series. It is trying to be politically and racially diverse, dark and edgy, while using the Dynasty name and similarities. The Dallas reboot worked because it continued the narrative of the original hit and included the REAL characters.

She is hot! I hope they dont F up this reboot like Dallas!

Shes cute and all but have they hired one actor for this that can actually act?

I have no doubt in Brianna’s ability to work hard and do a good job as an actress. This reboot though – ugh! Just make a new prime time soap or do what they did with Dallas, continue it not remake it. I have no plans to watch.

I want to know who they are getting to play Diahann Carol’s role.

‘Dynasty’ Recasts and Departures Addressed By EP and CW President

On Sunday at the CW’s TCA Summer Press Tour, the changing and revolving door of cast changes was bantered about during the network’s executive session. As fans of the Dynasty reboot know, the role of Cristal has now been recast twice.

First, following Nathalie Kelley’s exit at the end of the first season, Ana Brenda Contreras took over the role for season 2, but now, as had been previously reported, she is being replaced by actress Daniella Alonso ahead of season 3.  Contreras was said to be leaving for personal reasons.

And if that was not confusing enough, there was the exit of James MacKay as Steven Carrington when back in November of 2018 he announced via his Instagram: “While Steven had a choice to leave, unfortunately I didn’t. There’s a lot of decisions involved in making television, and sometimes they just don’t go your way and you have to live with it.”  However, MacKay returned to the show on recurring status making a few appearances since that time.

Then, there was the exit of Nicollette Sheridan, who left for personal reasons as well, in the key role of Alexis Carrington and who was replaced by Elizabeth Gilles who apparently now is playing a dual role on the show that of Fallon and Alexis, but is she moving forward?  And then .. behind the scenes the original reboot showrunner Sallie Patrick made her exit to go into development ahead of season 2; where she was replaced by Josh Reims.

CW President Mark Pedowitz had this to say to the press about the cast departures: “We hoped (Ana Contreras) would continue but she had personal issues we had no control over.  There’s no dirt to be found.”  Pedowitz was dismissing a theory that there was a bigger underlining issue going on behind the scenes.

Dynasty executive producer Josh Schwartz added to Deadline:“Some (casting changes) were made for creative decisions, some were made for personal reasons, and just a confluence of things that happened in succession but it’s not part of a larger pattern. And on the showrunner front, Sallie ran the show for two seasons on a 22-episode model.  It was always her plan to pass the baton after a couple of seasons. Josh is an excellent and experienced showrunner.”

So, what do you think about all the casting changes at Dynasty and we are only at the start of the 3rd season.  Comment below.
