    I dunno
    Let's be honest - she was way too young to play Sable Colby.

    But age has a tendency to catch up with you - she's only two years older than my father.

    Would the fab miss Beacham be able to play Sable Van Kirk?

    I always thought that she looked older than she really was.

    Sorry, but no. She may look great, even fantastic, for her age (71), but it'd be more appropriate for an actress in her 40s/50s to play the part of Sable Van Kirk... that is, if there will be a Sable Van Kirk. ^^

    Exactly. We're the ones who dreamed up the idea that she would even "exist" on NuDynasty and gave her that name. We don't even know if the show plans to have any of Liam's family (either side of his family) materialize on the show.

    That said, I've been a fan of SB's since I first met "Sable," and would buy a front row seat just to watch her read the phone book out loud.:love7:

    I don't think its too bad to assume we'll see the Van Kirks, given all the build-up around them. Plus, the writers seem like they want to keep Liam around, and if his family really is as screwed up as Fallon's, why wouldn't they make an appearance? :)

    Liam's uncle does sound a lot like Cecil Colby from seasons one, and two, the main difference is that it seems that he, and blake don't know each other.

    Stephanie Beacham should play Liam's aunt Constanza.

    Agree, but I think that had a lot to do with how SB played her, the manners, the clothes, the matriarchal hairdo etc. She was supposed to look older because she played Charlton Heston's wife.
    She looked so different in CONNIE (1985)

    In case we get to see Liam's parents/uncles etc I assume they'll be (or maybe I should say look) the same age as NuBlake and NuAlexis, although personally I don't have a problem with an older-looking parent (kinda like how Melissa Daniels is going to look to her 25 y/o child).
    70 is the new 60 so I think SB could play Liam's mother.
    But since this is CW Dynasty, I think they'd rather introduce Liam's brother or sister.

    I’d love to see the older actors in new roles like this. I think it’s a shame Gordon Thompson, as an example, didn’t play Tom Carrington. Of course it all depends on if they’d even agree to appear and what their demands would be. I’m sure they’d love Joan Collins, but because it’s Dynasty I’m sure she’d ask for a lot more than they can afford.

    Eileen Davidson just grabbed her latest Emmy and quit The Young and the Restless; her equally infamous characters on Days of our Lives are now being played by a different actress. Even though she claims she quit to "spend more time with her family," I wouldn't mind seeing her playing a prominent role on Dynasty. There aren't many soap staples (villain, heroine, romantic lead, comic relief, evil/good twins) she hasn't played.

    Even if Sable Van Kirk were never to materialize, she could possibly play a recast, plastic-surgeried Cristal. Of course recasting a Hispanic woman with a non-Hispanic woman might cause some controversy.
