    OK, it's fantasy casting time. If they were to remake Falcon Crest, either as a TV series or a film, who would be your ideal choice of actress to play the role of Angela Channing?

    I would chose Glenn Close. She is about the right age (71), a fabulous actress who would have no problem handling playing both the wicked and humorous side to Angela. She has gravitas and could project a believable image of an powerful, dominant figure that could make almost anyone cower and also show a softer more caring side to those she loves.

    How about Jane Fonda or Mary Steenburgen?


    Jane Wyman speaks about the final ever FALCON CREST and how the show altered in latter years, ('behind the scenes', from season 9, 1989 - '90):

    "I wanted to tie up the show; mention everyone who was gone - the grandfather, Melissa, Cole and Maggie, so that the loyal audience we had wouldn't feel cheated if they had been taken in a different direction by the producers that they didn't understand (and frankly I didn't either). It was a wonderful experience but I wasn't sorry to see it end because of the way it was going. The first six years of the show were marvellous, then they started tampering with it. I get so much mail from people saying they can't understand what happened."

    Richard Channing is the actress in your post Susan Sarandon or Sigourney Weaver? The way you have edited the image it is difficult to tell. Either would be excellent hypothetically speaking. Jock Og, yeah Jane Fonda would be an interesting alternative too.

    Well Falcon Crest would have no issues with troublesome bunnies potentially damaging the vines with the bunny boiler around :) I do like your choice. Glenn has this ability to display warmth but is amazing to watch when she turns feral.

    When I initially looked at that image I thought it was Laura Metcalf impersonating Hillary Clinton. Well if the casting directors are ever looking for an actress to play Hillary Clinton then look no further.

    I recognized her, but today I finally understood why you picked her.

    Yep, she's perfect. She can't rule The States but she can still rule the Tuscany Valley.

    I'm a big fan of Judith Light. I think she certainly has the elegance, strength and stature to pull off a modern day Angela.

    To put a twist on things, I always thought Sharon Stone would eventually make her way into the primetime soap world (albeit as a devilish Alexis style ex wife). While she doesn't look it, she's actually only four years younger than Jane was when she took on the role in 1981.

    Well, she almost played an Angela on "House of Cards". I think she´d still do it!
