    Hope somebody can shed some light onto this. We discovered something really interesting. In the episode KIDNAPPED, before they reveal Emma Samms' portrait, in the previous scene during a press conference a little portion of Fallon's portrait has been seen. Interesting thing is, it's not Pamela nor Emma. Look at the body position and a little bit of hair. Could it be they had another actress booked before they cast Samms? Any info will be 19420333_10156381199239251_1805786154175851590_n.jpg 19424256_10156381199834251_2166691479294098369_n.jpg appreciated.

    I have found a version with slightly more to see a little later in that same scene:

    Very strange and interesting finding, @RebelHeart and welcome to the forum! :)

    For comparison reasons, here is Emma Samms' portrait as shown just a few moments later in that episode (which is clearly another picture):

    And here the original Pamela Sue painting:

    Thank you Matthew :) I'm not new on the forum. Used to be under breathless_hr , but I lost my log in data and had to create a brand new profile. Anyway, interesting this Fallon business. Really wonder who it might be and why 2 different portraits in the same episode.

    Ah okay, thanks for clearing that up. Then welcome back! :D
    Maybe it was some kind of "raw draft" of Emma Samms with slightly different hair?
    There are as well some strange dark spots, where the eye and the mouth should be, which could be due to compression of the episode or... that "other" painting looked just really weid! :lol:

    I really wonder, I guess we'll never find out. Love your new look, though :)

    To complete the confusion, i just found this screenshot which looks like Emma Samms' Fallon of season 8 looks at a portrait of Pamela Sue-Fallon:

    [​IMG] :D

    But of course, that's just Nicole Simpson, she just looks similar from behind. ;)

    It looks to me like they had a mock up of a brunette in a red sparkly dress without the face finished, probably because they were down to the line on casting Emma and already needed to get some scenes filmed.

    2017 I think (unless it is 2016)
    I agree. They tried and tried (well, as much as this show "tried" with actors) to bring Pamela Sue Martin back--who at that time could not be convinced --so they probably had to leave the door open up to the last minute with a portrait that would fit the general outline of PSM.

    In the very first image you see more of the right arm, as if Fallon is facing the other way, yet in both PSM's and Emma Samms portraits they're facing the right angle and you see less of the right arm.

    I think it was an early draft of Emma Samms.

    I remember an interview with Emma saying that the portrait was horrible and didn't resemble her so they probably repainted it.

    So how come the repaint was so bad? Was the other one done with finger paints?
