General Hospital grad Brianna Brown is about to mix it up with the Carringtons and Colbys! Brown, who appears as fragile Claudia Blaisdel in the pilot of The CW's upcoming Dynasty reboot, is now set to recur, according to Deadline.
In the original series Claudia (played by Pamela Bellwood) was the emotionally unstable wife of Matthew Blaisdel (Bo Hopkins), an old flame of Krystle Carrington's (Linda Evans). Claudia later married Blake Carrington's (John Forsythe) gay son Steven (Al Corley) to keep him from losing custody of his son.
Since Steven (James Mackay) is out and proud in the new Dynasty —and Sammy Jo (Rafael de La Fuente) is a gay man — we doubt Claudia's story arc will be able to draw too much from the original series. One thing that will carry over is Claudia's jealousy over Cristal's(Nathalie Kelley) connection to Matthew (Nick Wechsler). Dynasty debuts Oct. 11 at 9 pm EST on the CW.
