'THE DYNASTY' TV REBOOT
NATHALIE KELLEY IS NEW KRYSTLE
A month ago I informed you that CW is preparing a pilot for the reboot of the famous soap opera THE DYNASTY and now we have the new Krystle or Cristal in the modernized version! Vampire Diaries star Nathalie Kelley will take the role!
Here's the new twist: the story will be told primarily through the perspectives of two women at odds: Fallon Carrington, daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington, and her soon-to-be stepmother, Cristal, a Hispanic woman marrying into this WASP family and America's most powerful class. In an age where dynasties appear everywhere - from reality TV to the polling booths - this epic drama features the one percent in all its glitz and gloss, while exposing the dark underbelly: a corrupt world built on backroom deals, betrayal, and, in some cases… murder.
