    Elizabeth Gillies has been cast in the CW’s “Dynasty,” Variety has learned exclusively.

    Gillies will star as Fallon Carrington, one of the central characters in the pilot, which is a modernized reboot of the original ’80s primetime soap.

    Dynasty” follows two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud for control over their fortune and their children. The series will be told primarily through the perspectives of two women at odds: Fallon Carrington — daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington — and her soon-to-be stepmother, Cristal — a Hispanic woman marrying into this WASP family and America’s most powerful class.

    Previously announced, “UnReal” and “The Vampire Diaries” alum Nathalie Kelley will play Cristal.

    In the original series, Fallon Carrington was played by Pamela Sue Martin and Emma Samms, who was re-cast in the role. Fallon is the daughter of Blake Carrington, who was played by John Forsythe on the ’80s primetime soap.

    Gillies is coming off of FX’s “Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll” on which she starred as Denis Leary’s daughter. The show was cancelled after two seasons last fall. She was one of Variety’s 10 TV Actors to Watch in 2015 when she was cast in the FX series. She got her start on Nickelodeon, starring on the hit tween series “Victorious,” enabling her to gain a large fan following, which is a perfect fit for the CW’s young, social-savvy audience.

    “Dynasty” hails from “Gossip Girls” creators Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage and Sallie Patrick. The writers will all serve as executive producers, along with the original “Dynasty” creators, Esther and Richard Shapiro. Schwartz and Savage’s Fake Empire shingle is behind the pilot, along with CBS Television Studios. Fake Empire’s Lis Rowinski will serve as a co-executive producer.

    I like her look, she looks like she has Morrell blood in her. I have no idea what her acting is like though.

    The Morrell's are probably from China in this version though, so... what do I know?

    ...huh. I'm actually relatively satisfied, all things considered. She actually bears a slight resemblance to PSM, has blue eyes, long wavy dark hair, and she's 23 (the age I always imagine Fallon being in season 1). Of course, this is only concerning her looks. I don't believe I've ever seen her in anything, so whether or she can play the part remains to be seen.

    YES!! Finally some good news. Maybe I'm going to root for Fallon this time!:lol: I hope she'll have the same sexy look as the one in the video, with dark hair.
    But I don't think she's got anything to say about it.

    Based only on her looks, I'd say it's terrific casting. She really looks like the type I'd preferably see Fallon as. She looks like she could play a spoiled daddy's girl who is a bit of a vixen, but not a psycho - and who could get jealous/suspicious when daddy marries a younger woman. One that's pretty close to her own age. So far so good.

    Then I will go ahead and assume that she can act.

    Y'know... she's got a face like PSM and a body like ES. She's becoming more and more ideal. :D

    One thing I always loved about the original show was the everlasting love and bond between Blake and Fallon. No matter what, those two were always there for each other, they were arguably their favorite persons. So I kind've have mixed feelings about Blake and Fallon being enemies in this version... but then again, its not going to be John Forsythe and Pamela Sue Martin this time around. So it'll probably be easier to take.

    I already suspected Alexis would be blonde, but I didn't mind that. Its FALLON who should NOT be a blonde. She was blonde in season 8 and it was a disaster. Those b*st*rds...
