    Have we ever heard what PSM ever thought of Emma Samms playing Fallon? We've heard Emma Samms take on PSM and how it was "her" decision not to watch the PSM years and therefore play her differently to her predecessor.

    But I don't think we've ever heard PSM's thoughts on the matter?
    What did she think of the Colby's, and Fallon's storylines on that show.

    Although I think her and Maxwell Caulfield would've looked good together, I just don't see PSM in mid 80s Dynasty somehow.

    I don't blame her for that decision. Not to mention, what Fallon years would she have watched? Fallon in year 1 and 2 was different from year 4, for instance. Also, I don't think of Fallon and Jeff on THE COLBYS as the same characters as those on DYNASTY. They were written and directed differently and had different weight--Fallon was less important on THE COLBYS than she was on DYNASTY and Jeff was paramount on THE COLBYS, while he was at times an afterthought on DYNASTY.

    I guess she was glad that she no longer had anything to do with it.

    That is likely true. She was the one who left them, not the other way around.

    Maybe she didn't watch the PSM years, but David Paulsen surely did. ;)

    Oh please, where's the logic in this?

    She could only decide to do it differently if she knew how PSM had done it.

    I think Tracy Scoggins would've played Fallon so well.

    Such a pity she wasn't Fallon in The Colbys.

    And to think, Tracy Scoggins and Maxwell Caulfield did a sex scene in a movie together. I believe it was "Alien Intruder" from 1993. Billy Dee Williams was in it as well.

    Tracy Scoggins actually looks like PSM too, I wonder why they never cast her as Fallon, looking back now it seems like the obvious thing to do, heck even Nu Dynasty cast Elizabeth Gilles due to her resemblance to PSM.

    I also wonder what she thought of Amanda? Its probable that she never watched Dynasty after she left, but I know she remained in close contact with Linda Evans and John James.

    I'm not tapping into this Scoggins-PSM vibe some of you are.

    Who was that supporting actress in THE COLBYS who actually did remind one of PSM??

    The Colbys didn't have any vixens, maybe Bliss could have been the bitchy troublemaker instead of being the "Amanda" or "Lucy"?

    She looked like a thinner Emma Samms.

    Tracy Scoggins looked like what PSM would look like if she had boobs and muscle. ;):lol: But in all seriousness, both actresses did have large blue eyes and slightly similar facial structure. Plus in seasons 1 and 9, they had long, straight-but-wavy, dark-colored (in PSM's case, brown; in TS's case, auburn) hair.

    I doubt PSM ever really had an opinion of Amanda at all. The closest to any explanation we'll get is when PSM and CO met on the 2006 Reunion, where CO mentioned she would have loved to work with the former; to which PSM said, "Oh thank you! Likewise."

    So who knows? I still like to imagine that, had PSM stuck around, that she would have loved having a whole bunch of sisterly fights with CO. "Finally! Something interesting to do!" :lol:

    A huge missed opportunity was PSM's Fallon never meeting
    CO's Amanda during the series, the 2006 reunion was rather surreal as all four original actors of the Carrington children were all in one room!

    On screen we had this:
    Fallon 1 & Steven 1: Seasons 1-2
    Fallon 1, Adam 1, Steven 2: Seasons 3-4
    Adam 1, Steven 2, Amanda 1: Season 5
    Adam 1, Steven 2, Amanda 1, Fallon 2: Season 6/Colbys
    Adam 1, Steven 2, Fallon 2, Amanda 2: Season 7/Colbys
    Adam 1, Steven 2, Fallon 2: Season 8
    Adam 1, Fallon 2: Season 9
    Steven 1, Fallon 2, Adam 2: Reunion

    Gordon Thomson despite his recast in the reunion was the most consistent Of all the Carrington siblings

    Well, she met her two brothers, but Dynasty never explored and exploited those sibling relationships. I still don't see her as Steven or Adam's sister.

    Really? They actually were working on a nice sibling relationship between Adam and Amanda. On a better written show (like, early DYNASTY) the two pairs (Steven/Fallon and Adam/Amanda) would have been an interesting dynamic
