    A lot of people around here believe the character will be recast, and I hope that's true (and I mean that nothing against Nicollette Sheridan; I'd rather she stay, but since that's not going to be the case... plus, I want the character to fulfill her potential), so why don't we all have some fun in guessing who could be the replacement?


    I've already talked about two possible candidates for who could play Caress, though now I'm suggesting them for Alexis:

    Elaine Hendrix



    Catherine Oxenberg

    Eileen Davidson would be my choice, but I hold out hope Nicollette would return.

    Like others have said, I want to keep Sheridan, even if they have to write her out for a while and then bring her back.

    She already has a gig, but I've always thought Anne Heche would do a great job in the role. She does a great job in every role.

    I wouldn't mind them taking on a daytime soap star - like Eileen Davidson, as suggested above.

    There are lots of unemployed soap stars these days, with only 4 daytime soaps remaining. Lots of them popular. Marcy Walker, Beth Ehlers, Signy Coleman etc etc

    There's also Beth Chamberlin:

    I was going to say she looks too young, and then read that she's actually 55! Same age as NS I think.

    "No" to all of these suggestions :lol:

    @xab mentioned a face-transplant, what if Melissa dies in an accident or something? They could put her face on Alexis.

    I read that in Liz Gillies's voice. Bravo!

    One of the vague "rules" of these situations is that when you recast via plastic surgery, you can hire someone younger if you want because plastic surgery can "explain" why someone suddenly looks younger. A lot of plastic surgery procedures are done with the express purpose of shaving off a decade or so.

    From the candidates mentioned in this thread my vote goes to Catherine O, for the obvious reason.
    I could argue that Nicolette is a better actress (I think) but that didn't really help on NuDynasty, to say the least:lol:
    Then again, given her experience with recasts, would she be interested?

    Tori Spelling is still on top of my list. She seems like a fun person and I think she'd love to play an OTT soap bitch.

    I'd vote for Eileen Davidson. She has similar features to Nicolette. Eileen also has this uncanny ability to play cold really well and I think after the horrific accident Alexis has gone through I'd like to see a personality change in Alexis. No more comedy routines. I'd like to see a scarred, tormented, former trailer tramp queen become an isolated, menacing, lives in the shadows bitch.

    Heche is a really good actress, her personal issues aside.

    Even her parents said she was a terrible person. So she'd be perfect, especially as a Nicollette-style replacement.

    I vote for Naomi Grossman (remember Pepper?). She might give us (you) a surprise...

    Surgery can heal people...but not make miracles, so the casting people should take this into account and choose someone..."different".

    Tori Spelling...... Are you going to tell me that you think someone like Blake Carrington would have ever fallen for any kind of character that Tori Spelling would have "played"? She and her brother only got where they are because they happened to be Aaron Spelling's kids. There are zero other reasons. Tori Spelling should never again be seen on TV, IMO.

    Though Tori Spelling as Alexis would be lovely :re: I doubt she could tear herself away from her husband and that pack of thirty-two kids to film in Atlanta.
