Trivia / Dynasty (2017)

Go To

  • Actor-Shared Background: Michael Michele is biracial, much like her character Dominique.
  • The Cast Showoff: Did you really think Elizabeth Gillies wasn't going to get a chance to show off her pipes? She does some singing in "Rotten Things", when Thomas Carrington insists on the tradition of Steven and Fallon performing carols, and again when they're practicing a ballad for Thomas' funeral, as per a request in his will, then again in the Season Two premiere. The Christmas episode also gives Nathalie Kelley a chance to show off some pretty nifty footwork.

  • Casting Gag: Grant Show, who plays Blake, is a veteran of primetime soaps like this one. The casting of Nicollette Sheridan as Alexis also counts as this; before she lived in Wisteria Lane she was a regular on Dallas spinoff Knots Landing.
  • Fake American:
    • Nathalie Kelley, who plays Cristal, is Peruviannote -Australian.
    • James Mackay, who plays Steven, is Australian.
    • Rafael de la Fuente, who plays Sam, is Venezuelan.
    • Sam Adegoke, who plays Jeff, is Nigerian.
  • The Other Darrin:
    • After Nicollette Sheridan had to leave the show for personal reasons, Elizabeth Gillies (under heavy makeup) temporarily played Alexis (justified in-universe by her having plastic surgery).
    • Cristal Jennings is played by Daniella Alonso after season 2 when Ana Brenda Contreras could not return.

How well does it match the trope?
