Looks like we need a new banner too!
Yeah, she hasn't been well of late. But hey, look at the people telling her to join Dynasty on her latest instagram post:
I left this thread with only 1 page dedicated to it. I've come home from work and there are 4 pages to read . Just as well the site hasn't crashed otherwise soapchater Matthew Blaisdel would have thrown a hissy fit...of epic proportions
So Nicolette has surrendered the role to be with her ailing mother. Family always comes first...period. Even the Ewing family would circle their wagons to protect their own.
A recast? Most on this site know my thoughts on recasts, never have liked them as it often throws the balance of a series and characters off course. I'd suggest the writers get creative and kill off Alexis in spectacular fashion. That said I do agree with other posters with concerns how far ahead final scripts have been created and the importance of Alexis in those stories. To be honest if they went down the path of killing the character off I wouldn't miss the character at all, only because how little impact she has had on the series.
On the upside this may give Bo (the dog) a higher profile. I could return as a regular viewer if that's the case.
She would be a lot happier if that were pure uncut Coke coming down instead of snow!
Guys, NS was fired. She blew her second chance as everyone knew she would. She was never a good fit as Alexis, ever.
I *thought* things had become nice and quiet around here for a while.
Anyway, I said this before, and I'll say it again: Catherine Oxenberg.
While I liked her as Amanda, I don't know if she could do Alexis. Then again, neither could Sheridan. I agree with those who say that the writers are ultimately responsible, but they did tailor the role somewhat to Sheridan.
David Duchovny would be a great choice too, he does drag so well!
No drag needed. Alexis is a male name. Have Alexis get a sex change operation and become a man. Problem solved.
Here's an interesting thought Ked. If they decide to recast the role does the new actress then mimic Nicolette's version of Alexis? I'm of the opinion if the writers continue on the path of writing Alexis as some dim-witted, comic relief character then it won't make too much difference I suppose.
She needs to retire. Now when a bio comes out about Mr. Ed she can take over that role and make yet another comeback...
Who's to know? Until everything comes to pass, that is.
I find a recast unacceptable. So I would definitely prefer they write her out.
And then some day she can return. This might be in 6 months, a year, two years...no-one has to wait for someone to die, just don't recast the role. Bring in Sable instead or whoever. And then some day in the near or distant future, NS can return to the show.
But well...I agree with James. Her ill mother is probably not the full story.
She might also be busy with her new business venture. Both Nicolette and her business partner, entrepreneur Kevin Harrington, posted many photos and videos from their meeting at an airport and in what looks to be his private jet over the past 24 hours.
She says they are working on a great new project and "creating their own dynasty". Harrington was one of the original investors and members of the panel on the popular ABC program "Shark Tank" (which he left in 2011).
Why play Alexis on TV when you can live like Alexis for real?
Yes... The princess of Yugoslavia screams raised on a pig farm.
Yes whatever you say, but I know a certain lady pig who is rehearsing scenes for her upcoming new role as...
Alexis Morell Carrington!!!
("Here is moi in my first scene, after being arrested for the murder
of a Mark Jennings! Look how I express nothingness so well!")
How about Charlotte Ross?
Honestly, I don't really care about this. Nothing can save this show anyway.
Grant Show should quit too as his character has become completely irrelevant...
