A former resident of Port Charles has moved to Denver! Brianna Brown (ex-Lisa, GENERAL HOSPITAL) will be starring in the DYNASTY reboot that premieres Wednesday, Oct. 11, on The CW! “My next project!” she tweeted. “For those who remember the original DYNASTY, I’ll be playing Claudia!”
MELROSE PLACE star Grant Show will be starring as Blake Carrington, originally played by John Forsythe. Elizabeth Gillies has been cast as Fallon Carrington, the role originated by Pamela Sue Martin and later played by Emma Samms (ex-Holly, GH).
In the original version of the primetime soap that ran on ABC for nine seasons, Claudia Blaisdel was portrayed by actress Pamela Bellwood. The character had an affair with and married the sexually-confused Steven Carrington, ended up in a sanitarium after kidnapping Fallon’s baby, and ultimately perished in a fire at La Mirage. “Thrilled to be reprising the role of Claudia Blaisdel,” Brown posted to Instagram.

Since leaving GH, Brown enjoyed a role on primetime sudser DEVIOUS MAIDS, and last year became engaged to fiancé Richie Keen. The couple tied the knot in May of 2017.
The DYNASTY reboot is from GOSSIP GIRL creators Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage, and Sallie Patrick. Original DYNASTY creators Esther and Richard Shapiro will also serve as executive producers on the new version.
