How about Karen Cellini as Alexis?
Like Voldemort's name, that's not the kind of thing we invoke even in jest!
Alexis vs NuAlexis: Battle of the Brits
Thanks! The tone seems so different from the little bit of the show that I caught towards the beginning of its run. So, these were all her scenes? Looks like it got the axe abrubtly.
The background music is super horrible. But am I the only one who was reminded of Alexis and Joseph's cobweb-strewn art studio scene when she walked onto the old abandoned Melrose apartment set?
But Amanda Woodward did. And Heather is also associated with that character.
Carrie, your description almost makes me think Sharon Stone should play her -- on a different network, with higher production values, that might have been a good idea.
Nonetheless, Sharon is another one who's nothing like the high-octane female characters for whom she's been typecast.
No, there were more scenes. I believe all those scenes were in the same episode... I think.
This would never happen, but Zoe Lucker would be an EXCELLENT Alexis. I feel like as excited as I am for the new Dynasty, I'm going to be disappointed in who they cast in this role. It's vital so they need to get it right. Lucker wouldn't be well known in the role, but we know she'd do so well in the role it wouldn't matter, much like Collins when she did the original. I'm also curious what type of roles they'll have for the original cast when they eventually appear. I'm also curious which of the older actors they'd look at. I also wouldn't be terribly opposed to Emma Samms as Alexis (don't shoot me).
That video is the first of five. If you open it in YouTube, you'll get the rest which have all of her scenes, including a Michael/Jane/Jo/Amanda reunion in the courtyard. Even though it got the axe, Amanda's arc did have closure of sorts.
That's very promising I have to say. It sounds really like Sallie Patrick has a good grasp of who Alexis was and she seems informed enough on the original show. I'm intrigued to see what she comes up with.
Out of all of those, I could see Emma Samms... At a push.
