Nathalie Kelley Says She Is Not Returning To DYNASTY For Season 2

In a surprise admission during an interview with E Online, one of the core members of CW’s Dynasty reboot, Nathalie Kelley revealed she is not filming season 2 of the primetime sudser when it resumes filming next month.

Kelley plays Blake’s (Grant Show) wife, Cristal, who ended the season one cliffhanger in a precarious predicament after being shot by Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown), while the Carrington mansion went up in flames, as well.

Kelley tells E! “I won’t be returning for Season 2.”  She went on to say as of the fate of Cristal:  ” Is it a coma? Is it death? … I actually don’t know. But I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying (in Los Angeles) … I’ve got my life back.”

Dynasty returns for its all-new season beginning on Friday, October 12th.

So, disappointed to hear there will be no Nathalie on season 2 of Dynasty?  How do you think they will write Cristal out of the story:  Coma … her body found will not be found … or is she truly dead?  Share your theories in the comment section below.

I’m hoping it is body not found or coma and they recast her eventually. I may be one of the minorities, but I rather enjoyed Nathalie Kelley’s portrayal of Cristal! Obviously she wasn’t happy so they could always recast her with a name star! Not sure who though!

I am so bummed about this. Crystal was the heart of the show and Nathalie did a fine job with the role. I think this is a HUGE mistake and now I’m much less inclined to watch Season 2.

Agreed! The CW made a huge mistake removing Kelley from the cast. I am painfully trying to get through this second season.

Haven’t watched 1/666th of a second of this Dynasty reboot (thought it was a bad idea, as opposed to the Dallas reboot which built on the foundation of the original main characters and introduced a new generation)…. but even so, it doesn’t seem it would have even a shred of credibility as “Dynasty” without a Cristal character.

They should get Paula Abdul to play her…lol

Coma or Plastic Surgery from the burns!

Cristal will be burned in the fire and put into a medically induced coma, then sent away for facial reconstruction and come back as a new actress. In the meantime, Alexis will sink her claws into Blake and then the all new Cristal will return to fight for her man.

THIS is bizarre… Count me in as a fan of Nathalie’s work as well as the reboot in general. I’m curious to hear the whole story. “I’ve got my life back.” Just what did they do to her?!?! You can’t have Dynasty without Cristal (or Krystle)! The producers have their work cut out for them…

Just “peeked” in on this thread. I don’t watch Dynasty but I know this actress from the The Vampire Diaries. “Got my life back?” Seems she wasn’t happy on the show of being away from her home.

Hi, Jamesj! 😉

Thanks for your reply, Rebecca! I didn’t know much about her previous work. But as someone who worshipped (figuratively!) Linda Evans, Nathalie did a great job! Take care, Friend!

Already jumping ship? Well, if she wasn’t happy (as her comment seems to imply) than good for her. As for “Dynasty”, I’ll miss her in the role but get over it soon enough. Recast and continue.

It hurts me that Nathalie won’t be returning for season 2, I love every role she played as Cristal

Lori Loughlin Returns To Acting; Set To Reprise ‘When Calls The Heart’ Role in GAC Family’s ‘When Hope Calls’

Former Fuller House, Edge of Night, and When Calls the Heart star, Lori Loughlin, has landed her first acting role since jail time and her part in the College Admissions Scandal; where she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid half a million dollars in bribes to get their two daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, accepted into the University of Southern California.

While, Jade is now also in this season’s Dancing with the Stars, now comes word that Loughlin has gotten her first acting gig since all the legal trouble, and while still on probation following her two months in jail.

Look for Lori to reprise her beloved role of Abigail from When Calls the Heart on its season two spin-off on GAC Family, When Hope Calls.

According to Deadline: Loughlin will appear in the two-part Season 2 premiere titled When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas, to air on Saturday, December, 18th.  Lori was last seen on TV as Abigail in Season 6 of Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart before she was let go over her involvement in the college admissions scandal.

Last week, speculation began that Loughlin may be back working after a report surfaced from Mercury News  that she had been granted permission by a Boston federal judge to travel to Canada for about a week in late September-early October for “a filming production project.”

So, what do you think about Lori’s return to acting following serving jail time? Will you be watching her as Abigail on When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas? Comment below.
