    Original scene



    And then later Dynasty had this bizarre habit of recreating PSM scenes with Emma Samms



    Of course Jeff got the timing wrong. In the original, even though Fallon is thinking about Krystle's wedding as the catalyst, what has just transpired is Alexis moving into the studio.

    The rest speak for themselves

    Pamela Sue Anderson's Fallon was so full of life.
    Emma Samms' Fallon was deader than when the character was dead.

    Not the actress' fault anyway : Emma's Fallon in season 9 was amazing.

    She improved even during season 8. Here, in the beginning, she is still playing Fallon as a victim, the way she was written on THE COLBYS. But overall Dynasty was too flippant about recasting. And no matter the outcome, at least for Fallon they went with an actress that had captured the largest daytime audience, that of General Hospital. For Amanda, they just picked the first photo they found that had similar hair.

    To be honest, I really love Emma Samms in dynasty : she was beautiful, and she had that special something that made her lovable. But she wasn't Fallon. The direction and the writing for her character was wrong. Fallon wasn't Fallon anymore (till Season 9)

    And I agree, in season 8 the character was slowly changing for the better.

    About Amanda 2 : I was a kid at the time, but I always thought the actress was no good at all : her acting was not good, she had no charisma (she always seemed lost in the group scene. Like she didn't know what to do, how to stand) and most of the time I was asking myself "why is she smiling for no reason ?" :D

    And the Make up & Hair team made her look older than she actually was (I saw pictures of her from the same time, in real life, and she looked a bit younger)

    I thought he was handsome the first two seasons. Then either the character got lamer, or Adam/Thomson came and made me forget all about Jeff/John James. Or both.

    Good choice as Gordon is aging more gracefully than John James.

    Bit of a side note but I watch America's Next Top Model and one of the girls who won one of the cycles is John James' daughter.

    I felt a bit sorry for Karen Cellini. Yes, she was a fairly terrible actress but Catherine Oxenberg was no member of the Royal Shakespeare Company either. It was probably just the perfect storm of bad ideas within a bad situation. But it just highlighted how ridiculous she looked following on from the Princess who was pretty much cast for her looks and bearing. This arguably was not her fault, and the disappointment must have been horrible for the poor woman.

    Anyhow, basically Amanda was a redundant character after Fallon returned from the dead. Even though the Colbys being on got Fallon out of the way, to not have the sisters have some drama also seemed a huge missed opportunity.

    This forum is a bit obsessed with Shakespeare. :D

    She apparently had some connections to be able to read for the role of Bliss first, and then eventually be cast as Amanda. Maybe her agent should have helped start out with something with less exposure if she wasn't ready as an actress. Now, I am the first to admit Oxenberg was no Pamela Sue Martin, but @thomaswak also mentioned Cellini's lack of charisma, which I think Oxenberg had by the bucket-load.

    Actually, she was auditioning for the role of Channing. Interesting, Karen was real-life friends with the actress who did get the part of Channing.

    Not Bliss but Channing (Miles' wife in the second season of "The Colbys"). Karen Cellini was still a brunette when she did that casting but somehow Aaron Spelling saw a likeness with Catherine Oxenberg !
