Stand back! Here comes the new Alexis Carrington onto the canvas of CW’s Dynasty!

Knots Landing fans have been eagerly waiting to see the debut of Nicollette Sheridan (Ex-Paige) as the new “Queen B” of the show, played in the original by the one and only Joan Collins.

Circle Friday March 23rd at 8PMET to see how nuAlexis makes her grand entrance!

In an exclusive first look with EW.com, Sheridan shares: “I have always been attracted to playing the naughty girl, and for some reason, my audience loves seeing me in that role. It’s challenging to make that person likable, and I get to do it again (with Alexis).”

When weighing in on Alexis’ relationship with her daughter, Fallon (Elizabeth Gilles), Sheridan offered up:  “Alexis has the experience and the wisdom that comes with age. So as brilliant as her daughter is, she’s in trouble now. (The writers) are really exploring the mother-daughter relationship, which to me is the most complicated relationship on the planet, so I love that.”

So, excited to see how Nicollette interprets and makes the role of Alexis Carrington her own? Comment below.

I worry too little, too late. this reboot just never found traction!

Wonder if the story was allowed to be told without the “brand names,” it would be more successful. harnessing the series with legendary TV title, characters, stories, can only foster expectations and reminiscences a new show cannot shoulder.

I’m sorry some roles are so iconic that can never be duplicated — Joan Collins is and always will be the only Alexis for me.

I just can’t picture Alexis as a blond. Or American. I wonder why they felt like they needed to use the Dynasty name and character names. They really could have just created a new soap with a similar setup.

Nicollette was born in the UK and lived there the 1st 10 years of her life. Maybe she’ll do a British accent…

As a big-time fan of the original show, I understand the hesitancy for some viewers to accept any recast of these iconic roles. But I have quickly become a fan of the reboot, too!

For those who can’t picture Alexis as an American blonde, try these on for size:
Cristal as a Latina!
Jeff as an African-American!
Michael as an African-American!
Blake as a younger man!
And Sammy Jo as a man and Latino at that! (Sammy Jo, in particular, is quite the character!)

I believe the new show, though different, tries in some small ways (and in other major ways) to honor the original show. Some of it is over the top. But the original was that way, too. Moldavia massacre anyone? Catfights x3, x4 anyone? For me, it’s been quite the enjoyable romp so far…

Anyone else think that Sheridan would have made a great recast for Phyllis on Y&R when Michelle Stafford left?

The current actress is “okay” in the role but definitely is not up to the level of Stafford. With one trip to the beauty shop for a red dye job, Sheridan could have nailed it.

Yes, Barbara! Sheridan would have been great in that role. Y&R could use your casting advice.

Totally agree but nobody wants to do daytime anymore Gina is too young for the role and she will always be Kelly Cramer and Jason Thompson will always be Patrick Drake . Sometimes you need to let it go and not recast just st write them out. PB has been Jack for over 25 years but I still see Terry in the role

I go on you tube and see my friend Terry as Jack and I see no one else with the Jack essence and I truly adore PB just is what it is

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
