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

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.”

Elizabeth Gillies Had Appendicitis Just Days Before Her 'Dynasty' Audition'

Elizabeth Gillies just gave her first sit down interview about her new show Dynasty, and we actually learned so much that we didn’t know before.

The actress, who plays Fallon Cartwright on the upcoming CW drama, opened up to Zach Sang during her interview about her audition for the show — and it was actually quite an ordeal!

“I had appendicitis,” Liz revealed within seconds. “I’m not kidding. I had appendicitis and I was in the hospital and Matt [Bennett] was with me…No one believed me that I had it, but he was with me in the ER.”

She adds, “But when I woke up, I had an email about the show. I was still on a lot of drugs then [because of the surgery], but I read it and went, right out of the hospital.”

OMG!

“It was like two days after recovery that I read for it,” Liz shared. “I had the audition the same week, and they actually told me in the room [that I had the part], which had never happened before.”

Dynasty will premiere on Wednesday, October 11th on the CW.

Elizabeth Gillies Shines as Fallon Carrington in 'Dynasty' First Look Trailer - Watch!

Elizabeth Gillies Shines as Fallon Carrington in 'Dynasty' First Look Trailer - Watch!

Elizabeth Gillies was completely made for the role of Fallon Carrington on Dynasty!

The show centers on Fallon, the charismatic, cunning, and poised to become the new COO of her father’s global energy empire – or so she thinks.

When her father, Blake Carrington, summons Fallon and her brother, Steven, home in Atlanta, Fallon is horrified to learn that the reunion isn’t to announce her promotion – but rather to make the acquaintance of their stepmother-to-be, Cristal.

Family dynasties flow through blood, and Fallon would sooner draw blood than call Cristal “Mom.”

Dynasty will air this fall on Wednesday nights on The CW.

Liz is also pictured below at the CW Upfronts in New York City.
