Elizabeth Gillies Doesn't Want Original 'Dynasty' Fans To Hate Her Fallon Carrington In The Reboot

Elizabeth Gillies knows all about the world of reboots, so it’s understandable that she’s just a little cautious about her new show Dynasty.

In an interview with Zach Sang, Liz revealed that her Fallon Carrington will be a bit different from the original Fallon Cartwright.

“I did watch a lot of the original Dynasty before hand, because we’re remaking something and I don’t want people to hate me,” Liz says. “When you do a reboot, there’s a really good chance that the OGs who grew up with it, are going to be ‘ugh’ and roll their eyes at it.”

She adds, “My goal is to create a character that pays…I want to pay tribute to her but I still want to recreate her so that it’s not a direct comparison, because people were in love with the original characters.”

Liz also recommends watching at least some of the original series, but don’t be expecting the reboot to be exactly the same.

“If you watch the original Dynasty, it’s fabulous, but it was very much of that time,” she says. “You’ll listen to things they say and you’ll be like ‘That could never be said now’. We have to modernize and update it and we have.”
