    Yes, I'm aware that *three* actresses have played Fallon Carrington, but for this poll, I decided that "Old Fallon" would mean the one that appeared in the original series. Meaning you guys have to consider PSM and ES as one and the same. :lol:

    I suppose you can look at it like this: which Fallon is being written/handled better? The one from the 80s, or the current one?

    I prefer Pamela Sue. But I like the third (don't know her name) better than Emma.

    Elizabeth Gillies is the current actress, but that wasn't the point of this thread. The point was, do you like Fallon from the original series (meaning that you have to count PSM and ES' versions as *one* character) or Fallon from the new series?

    I know, I chose 'Old Fallon'. But I do hope you don't mean I am not allowed to give a response with my opinion about the three actresses anyway?

    2017 I think (unless it is 2016)
    It's not that there were two old Fallons, but that Samms was also two Fallons, a stepford Hausfrau on THE COLBYS and a more energized one (though still not as complex as Martin) on DYNASTY.

    Original series Fallon. Love and respect for Blake was evident with her. I get nothing but spoiled and selfless from the reboot model.

    Ah. I just thought you hadn't understood what my original intent was is all.

    Of all the old-to-new transitions, nuFallon has been the most successful.

    The thing I like the most is that she actually gets to be involved with the company, something the old Fallon rarely got to do.

    The new, updated Fallon does seem to be the centerpiece of their project, so it's lucky for them that they got this character's "revamp" so right.

    I dunno
    While I like Elizabeth Gillies, there's just no comparison to her and Pamela Sue's (early) Fallon before they decided to destroy the character.

    Poor Emma Samms stepped into the role and was basically told to play a victim, until Paulsen stepped in and reverted the character to her original self.

    But it's really not fair - we've had one season of Gillies' - maybe her Fallon will go the same way as it did in the original and become a sobbing victim...

    Right now I'd rank them:

    1. Pamela Sue (s1-3)
    2. Gillies
    3. Samms (s9)
    4. Pamela Sue (s4)
    5. Samms (Colby's and s8)

    Oh, it's definitely her show. And I think that's why they won't bother to upstage her with "Alexis" and maybe that's a good thing because now they can do with Alexis whatever they want (and less pressure on "how to update a character as iconic as Alexis", so it's also very practical).

    I like NuFallon's physically violent nature.

    Plot-wise, I think Fallon 2 was better for The Colbys than Fallon 1 for Dynasty season 4.
