Original ‘Dynasty’ Virtual Reunion On Tap to Help Long COVID Research

Former Dynasty star, Emms Samms (Ex-Fallon), who has been open about her battle with long Covid-19 (after contracting the virus back in 2020), has organized along with Coastal Entertainment, a very special virtual get-together.

Samms had brought together many of  her former co-stars from the original ABC version of Dynasty.

The upcoming virtual event will help mark Dynasty’s 40th anniversary and help those in need to raise money for Long Covid research.

 

Scheduled to participate in the virtual event along with Samms are: Heather Locklear, Gordon Thomson, John James, Jack Coleman, Stephanie Beacham, Catherine Oxenberg, Maxwell Caufield, Terri Garber and Ray Abruzzo.  BBC Radio’s Scott Mills will host.

Circle Saturday March 20th at 12pm EST with tickets going on sale today.

General Hospital fans know that recently Samms appeared on the ABC daytime drama back in her role of Holly Sutton, when the character was revealed to be alive and well, and being held captive.  That story is still unresolved and viewers wait to see how and when it might return on-air.

So, what do you think of this Dynasty reunion? Comment below.

Well, this came out of the blue! And for this Dynasty (original series) fan, I am ecstatic and will be watching! Great cause as well.

Hello, Jamesj75, glad to read you again! I also adored DYNASTY on its first run and have rewatched it several times on DVD. I know Pamela Sue Martin probably doesn’t want to revisit the show, but she was so much better as Fallon than Ms. Samms (not really Emma’s fault…just miscasting). I’d also miss Pamela Bellwood as Claudia, my favorite character, and the late great Diahann Carroll. But…any DYNASTY is better than none. I still miss KNOTS LANDING, too. Can you believe only two seasons of KNOTS exist on DVD? What’s up with that? With all the crapola shows already… Read more »

Hello Soaphound! Great to read you as well! Right off the bat: Claudia (Pamela Bellwood) was also, far and away, my favorite character! Beyond that, I was Team Krystle, though I appreciated Alexis, especially when she was dismissive of someone, which happened a lot! I liked Pamela Sue Martin as well as Emma Samms. When I think of Emma Samms in the role, my mind immediately goes to her ending on The Colbys, as she was whisked away in a spaceship… They don’t make ’em like that anymore! As for the lack of Knots Landing seasons on DVD, it’s a… Read more »

I agree, Jamesj75, and I think Linda Evans’ work on the show was underrated. It takes a lot of thought and discipline to “underplay” among so many scenery chewers. Some of her looks of frustration and bewilderment remain with me still. Not taking anything away from the divine Joan. If you haven’t read it yet, Joan’s second memoir, “Second Act”, is a terrific book and has LOTS of DYNASTY dish, some very honest.

Yes, yes and yes, but oh, those shoulder pads!

Oh Violet! Those shoulder pads must have had their own trailer and parking space. Who knew they’d stay in vogue so long? That and big hair. The 80s were certainly unique.

Thank you for your reply, Soaphound. And thank you for clarifying a great reason to have rooted for Linda Evans’ character. Regarding Joan Collins, I really should buy that book! Finally, I did see some words of wisdom from you in another thread — always appreciated.

Would never be the same without John Forsythe, Joan Collins and Linda Evans.

Would never be the same without John Forsythe, Linda Evans and Joan Collins. I don’t care for the 2nd time around re-dos. It is not the same, like just watching a new show. They tried it a while back with B.H 90210, and it was a flop. Try doing a new Cheers for instance without the originals, I know I wouldn’t enjoy it.

I’m with you, Violet. Classics should be left alone, whether TV or films. I’m so relieved that Streisand and Redford never sequeled THE WAY WE WERE. I say find a new idea or, if you’re going to repackage the same plot, have enough pride to NOT link it to a previous movie.

Linda Evans Joins the Virtual ‘Dynasty’ 40th Anniversary Reunion

Look who’s been added to the line-up of Emma Samms (Ex-Fallon Carrington) upcoming Dynasty reunion? None other that one of the iconic series most notable stars, Linda Evans (Ex-Krystle).

In a tweet on Wednesday, Samms shared: “OMG… Look who’s joining us for the Dynasty Reunion! It’s only LINDA EVANS.  I’m so grateful, but not surprised by the kindness of her heart. It’s to raise funds for research into Long Covid.”

On Saturday March 20th you can help raise funds for world-leading research into the global pandemic’s, Long Covid, which has gripped many who have come down with Covid-19, but are still feeling the effects of the virus months after their initial illness, and have developed additional medical complications because of it including: breathlessness, fatigue and muscle aches.

So, join Emma and Linda along with previously announced Dynasty stars: Heather Locklear, Jack Coleman, Catherine Oxenberg, Maxwell Caufield, John James, Pamela Bellwood, Al Corley, Gordon Thomas, Stephanie Beachem, Terri Garber and more for a virtual reunion brought to you by Coastal Entertainment.

As soap fans know, Emma also plays Holly on General Hospital and when last we saw her, viewers found out she was alive and well but being held captive, but where o’ where? Samms taped the key scene from England last year.  Fans hope to someday see the pick-up of the story.

So, excited to hear Linda Evans is part of the Dynasty reunion? Will you be participating? Comment below.
