    How about it? She's just a few years younger than Grant Show, she's a blonde so would work as a contrast against both Cristal and Fallon. She was raised a little in England and can do a British accent, she can do bitchy and she has the soap diva props, and requisite knowledge of the genre. So she knows how to camp it up and swagger and wear clothes from her days on Knots Landing and Desperate Housewives and she is reportedly a bitch in real life too. Perfect!

    I always kind of liked her and think she would actually work as Alexis. She does cool bitchy quite well as well as raging anger and she's quite good doing vulnerable too.

    Alexis just prior to being arrested for the murder of Marc Jennings.

    I wouldn't mind this, but unfortunately she was was pretty much blacklisted after her lawsuit from Marc Cherry slapping her. Ironic now with the Harvey Weinstein stuff, but she is a prime example of why women didn't speak out.

    When it comes to Alexis my #1 will always be Zoe Lucker based on her work on Footballers Wives, but that's a pipe dream. I'd love to see them cast Heather Locklear or Emma Samms in the role. I know Samms wasn't the best Fallon at first but she's proven herself to be a good actress under the right circumstances.

    Zoe Lucker is amazing but I doubt America is interested.

    I love Locklear and Samms but I don't feel either of them have what it takes to be Alexis. They just don't have that natural bite. Even on Melrose Place Locklear as Amanda Woodward was a totally different person to Alexis. She wasn't a viper, she was actually a good person who could be snappy at work or over a man. She wasn't anywhere near the bitch Alexis was. And Samms on Models Inc, sort of hammed it up Alexis style but again, she is just too sweet and lovely to be a bitch. She doesn't have that natural bite.

    Sheridan has that bite, and I would say likely the fangs have been sharpened after her experience with Marc Cherry and Desperate Housewives. And just like Joan Collins then she's in her Empire of The Ants days. She's the queen of Hallmark Christmas movies.

    It won't matter who they cast as Alexis.

    Sheridan should be slapped as often as possible.

    Why do you say that? Is she difficult on set? I hadn't heard that but you never know.

    I could see that with Joan since she was the star of the show, but Nicolette was never in that position on Knots or Desperate Housewives. She became a major player on Knots, but Joan, Michele and Donna would've always carried more clout one would think.

    If we are diving into the pool of other prime time soaps, then Marcia Cross all the way for me. Plus it would be funny that she and Grant Show had been together on MP.

    I don't think she'd do it though.

    She doesn't stun me as much as my fictional heroine Titsy McGee.

    Things are a little bit upside down in NuDynasty, but not too much, I mean I can't imagine Alexis as a non-villain.
    But since all the others are different from the original characters, I wonder if they'll do the same with Alexis.
    For a show that promotes itself with a pretty cupcake promo, I honestly don't think this character will be unpleasant to look at.

    But what if she's a different type of villain? For example, a very intelligent person, a doctor in "something" or a psychiatrist. A calm, but very manipulative person with a superior and icy attitude - and smile. Cristal and Fallon are already very emotional and physical, a third one would make it less varied?
    I think it was a smart move to re-make both the story and characters - especially Steven is the complete opposite of original Steven (by Al Corley) - because it avoids the obvious comparison.
    It would have been extremely difficult to satisfy the audience, especially the fans who never stopped being fans, if the characters were simply cloned.
    "OMG, who does she think she is? Linda Evans? What a travesty!"
    I think there are quite a few capable actors out there, so I'm not saying that it would be impossible to re-create that on-screen magic. But honestly, what are the odds?
    Besides, since this first season looks like original season 3 (in terms of spectacle), it's obvious they didn't intend to re-create original S1's poignant and cinematic atmosphere.
    And to be honest, I think it would have confused and alienated a lot of people who hardly remember those episodes.
    And no viewers = no show.

    Would it be better to alter Alexis' personality too? Like the example above, or maybe a no holds barred dragon like Judith Ryland or Margaret Chenowith (Six Feet Under)?
    Or do we insist on seeing the glamorous, sultry, semi-sophisticated alphabitch from the original show (not-played-by-Joan-Collins)?

    My guess? They're waiting to see the reactions of the audience, and to get a good grasp of the chemistry of the various actors...after which, they will cast the role of Alexis and tailor it to meet the needs of the show--and use her to get rid of the problematic aspects of the series. If the part is intended to be the "one who shakes everything up," the savior if you will....then they need to know what she's going to be shaking up and saving.

    Nicolette Sheridan would good! In fact I would watch nuDynasty for her, she's a good actress, and although she is probably a has-been now, well so was Joan Collins by the early 1980s, I think NS would be very bankable based on her time on KNOTS and
    DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES.

    Another choice would be January Jones from MAD MEN, if they're going for the classical beauty looks for Alexis then she should be it, I think its a given that nuAlexis should be a blonde, hopefully English too.

    She's too old, but I'd love to see a big (overweight) actress.
