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.

According to Yahoo News: Liev Schreiber has also joined the cast of the film.  Schreiber will play tennis coach Paul Cohen, a famous instructor who worked with several leading tennis players including John McEnroe and Pete Sampras, amongst others. The script has been done by Zach Baylin and depicts the story of Williams, who trained his two daughters to play tennis without having any prior knowledge of the sport and turned them both into Grand Slam winners and World No. 1 Players in the world.”

Chapman posted on her Facebook page: “Pleased to leak the latest … I will be playing “Just Say No” NANCY REAGAN in Will Smith’s new film..”KING RICHARD” about Venus & Serena’s Dad and their rise to Tennis Fame! Last year TALLULAH…HAH! The Life of an Actor!!”

DYNASTY Returns And Alexis Makes Her Presence Known

The back half of the third season of CW’s Dynasty kicks-off tonight and while Blake (Grant Show) is on trial, it’s nuAlexis who comes and shakes things up.

As viewers saw in the fall finale, Elaine Hendrix made her debut as the new Alexis Carrington, following the exit of Nicollette Sheridan and then the one-time episode where it looked like Elizabeth Gilles (Fallon) had taken over the role.

Fast-forward to tonight’s episode, Hendrix comes into her own in the role made soap-famous by Joan Collins back in the 80’s.  In story, we find out that Alexis is married to Jeff Colby (Sam Adegoke)!

Hendrix told TV Line on the pairing: “Depending on who you ask and which P.O.V. you’re coming from, they’re putting it out there to the world that they love each other, but of course nobody believes them. Personally, I think she really does care about Jeff.”

How does Alexis’ return impact her daughter, Fallon? How does her testimony wreak havoc on Blake’s trial? Stay tuned.

Excited to see what Hendrix brings to the role of Alexis when she swings into action on the rest of the season of Dynasty? Comment below.
