    For all the dragging we gave NS's Alexis, I will look back on her fondly. NS created a distinct character that I enjoyed watching. A lot of people were unhappy that she wasn't as close to Original Alexis as they wanted her to be, and yes, we missed out on a certain amount of fun having someone more like that. But I enjoyed the antics of this version of Alexis, and I hope they will retain some of NS's version when (IF) they decide to reboot the character when they give her a new face.

    I'd be willing to accept NS dropping in as Alexis's lookalike sister, Carrie (nee Caress). They could even lay the groundwork during this convalescence period by having Fallon mention "Aunt Carrie being at mother's bedside" as an excuse for none of the Carringtons being at the out-of-town hospital when Alexis has some procedure done.

    I'd love to see Jamie Luner added to the cast. I loved her as the scheming Peyton on the short-lived 'Savannah', followed by the take-no-prisoners part of Lexi Sterling on 'Melrose Place'. She could be a great fit.

    This was totally believable in a way as Belinda Giblin had an uncanny resemblance to Rowena Wallace though Belinda was shorter and had a different voice. When Rowena decided to return the writers created a story I could believe by having her as the long lost twin of Patricia, since she was the mother of twins, Angela and John.

    Apologises for going off topic.

    That sounds like if Natalie Portman were on a TV series and decided to leave, only for Keira Knightley to come on as a different character, and then Portman decides to come back, and each of their characters are written as long-lost twins. :lol:

    Don't worry, it happens. :)

    Haven't you seen "The Parent Trap"? One twin spoke with an American accent, the other spoke with an English accent, on account of how their parents lived in different countries. That can be the case with Portman and Knightley, seeing as how they'd be "long-lost", after all... OH! Why not have them switch accents? It'd be like how American Fallon turned British, and British Amanda turned American! :lmao:

    Nicolette Sheridan once replaced Daryll Hannah ("Paper Dolls") so why can't Daryll replace Nicolette?

    Because the show made it clear they want somebody younger-looking. Daryl might resemble Nicolette, but she also looks the same age as her. Not younger.

    Ironically, with Ana Brenda replacing Nathalie, even though Ana is the younger one, she actually looks older. Not because she looks "old", but rather, she looks more "womanly" than Nathalie. But I think that works, given how Cristal is supposed to be stepmother/"substitute aunt" to a group of people in their mid to late 20s (I'm assuming Steven and Adam are late 20s, while Sam is mid 20s; even if I know their actors are older), and that she's married to a guy in his 50s.

    This sounds to me just like "The British government is a bit vague on what it wants from Brexit" :D

    Actually, Nathalie Kelley just replied to a fan asking about this on Instagram. It's a definitive 'NO' on her part.

    Let's cast Victoria Smurfit from "Once Upon a Time", she played Nicollette's best friend in TV movie "Honeymoon for One" and they have been very friendly ever since.

    I'd buy that. She was superb as Cruella de Vil in OUAT. Someone written out WAY too soon.

    I personally would have prefered a darker version than the original but unfortunately the rot had already set in with season 1. This version of Dynasty just got it all wrong. Michael having breakfast or lunch on Fallon ;). That was just for openers. Then there was Cristal's ankles pointing to the heavens on Blake's desk. It was just weird.

    The plotting was all over the place so when Alexis finally arrived there really wasn't anything to salvage. Sure a few episodes of late looked promising but the writers quickly fell back to routine.

    As much as I would love to see Nathalie Kelley back (she really, really grew on me by the end of season 1) it would be totally impossible from a credibility standpoint. Well, I know, the plastic surgery to explain the actress change is not credible too. But having Nathalie as the new Alexis would be totally insane. (At least, if they take that crazy road, it would be better than having Gillies playing the part).

    Damn, now I am picturing a "sucked white asparagus hair" wig on Nathalie Kelley's head to match Nicolette's hair. And that's not funny :D

    Adam on the phone: "Well yes, the doctor did a good job with the face, but the coloring....we were going for 'sultry Latina,' but ended up with Oompa Loompa."
