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.

I would love to see these actors, too, Anne!

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.

Eliza Bennett Cast as Amanda Carrington on CW’s Dynasty

In the original ABC classic version of Dynasty, Catherine Oxenberg played this key role, which was also played for a time by Karen Cellini, but now comes word that CW’s reboot of the series is adding back into the mix the character of Amanda Carrington.

This time, the British-Carrington will be played by actress Eliza Bennett (MTV’s Sweet/Vicious). And remember, Amanda is the daughter of Alexis Carrington (Elaine Hendrix).

According to TV Line, Bennett will become a series regular and will debut this season and return for season five of the soap.

The log lines for Amanda’s re-emergence in the story share: “The long-lost Carrington relative, born and raised in Europe, arrives on the Carrington doorstep holding a treasure trove of secrets from their past… and hers,  Amanda is smart, confident, and can hold her own against any Carrington who comes at her. By day she’s a savvy lawyer, but by night she’s a bit of a party girl. Ashe has no problem stirring up trouble in a family full of troublemakers.”

So, what do you think about NuAmanda? Excited they have had the character back to the canvas of Dynasty? Comment below.

‘Dynasty’ Reveals ‘Who’s In the Casket’ as Original Cast Member Exits

Friday night’s episode of CW’s Dynasty featured the highly-anticipated reveal of which character was being mourned at the funeral in the season-opener flash-forward.

It turned out that original CW series cast member, Alan Dale (Anders) is the one who exited the series, and who’s character died.  And as viewers learned it was not from exactly from an injury to the rib, sustained in trying to protect Fallon (Elizabeth Gillies) and Liam (Adam Huber) from kidnappers that actually did Anders in, but from a car accident and the pain of it his injures on his way to see Cristal (Daniella Alonso) in the hospital that sent him to heaven. Meanwhile, Cristal wasn’t doing too well either, as she was undergoing experimental treatments for a brain tumor.

The red-herring of who was actually in the casket led viewers to believe it could have been Cristal, Liam, or Culhane (Robert Christopher Riley) and earlier in the season many believed it was Sam (Rafael de la Fuente) or Adam (Sam Underwood), but they later appeared in the flash-forwards of the funeral.

Clearly, Fallon is very devastated by the the loss of Anders.  Earlier in the episode Anders told her, “Nothing’s going to happen to you while I can help it. You’re like a daughter to me.”

Fans took to Twitter on Friday sharing their grief of the beloved Alan Dale being killed-off the series as well with numerous sentiments on the reveal.

So, did you guess it was Anders who was in the casket? Sad to know Alan Dale is off Dynasty? Comment below.
