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

Dynasty Casts A New Alexis Carrington

We have come to expect the unexpected from CW’s soap, Dynasty, especially in the casting department.  There have already been three Cristal’s since the show debuted, and now it appears a third Alexis Carrington.

When we last left off, Nicollette Sheridan (Knots Landing and Desperate Housewives) bowed out of the reboot as Alexis; the role originally played on the ABC version by Joan Collins.  When Sheridan last appeared as troublemaker Alexis she had her face burned in the fireplace thanks to Adam (Sam Underwood)! After plastic surgery, it was revealed that she looked just like Elizabeth Gilles, who plays Fallon, thus setting up what we thought would be dual role for the talented Gilles.

However, it looks like their has been a change of plans with the casting news today via Deadline, that actress Elaine Hendrix is now set to play the pivotal role on the series.

Hendrix is known from her work in The Parent Trap, and Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll.  Elaine will also be seen on-screen in the upcoming feature The Country Club, plus Spectrum Originals mystery series Paradise Lost, and the upcoming feature  Adopt A Highway.

Details on how the soap will explain the new look Alexis and what she has been up to are being kept under wraps, but apparently she is back in Atlanta (where the story and show takes place) with some serious scores to settle.
