Al Corley, who took the controversial role of Steven Carrington in order to exploit the social impact of playing the first openly gay main character in a prime-time series, quit when the show's producers caved into network demands that Steven Carrington be cured of his homosexuality. Jack Coleman was hired to replace Corley and in order to explain away the change in actors, a storyline was written where Steven was in an oil rig explosion that required extensive plastic surgery to fix, resulting in Steven being given a brand new face as a result of numerous surgeries to rebuild his face.

I loved this show and I think I will love it forever. It was beauty and luxury at its best. People may criticise it on the grounds that the situations were unbelievable and acting was stiff, I think that was the only way the show could work and become what it undeniably became: unique. Dynasty was a shrine to the excesses of the 80's. Probably nobody was too natural back then, so the cast should be given credit for adopting a pace that suited the show and that was key to its success. Ratings might have sunk, but that is always bound to happen. However, almost 20 years later and the show always gives plenty to talk about, is synonym of luxury (even for people who did not follow the show or weren't even born then). That must be worth something. I am sure anyone you ask is likely to know who Alexis Carrington is. I truly wish these days there would be shows were you could see beautiful women (of all ages - even if they had tons of make-up ans stuff) an immaculate scenery and splendid props. Dynasty - in ts kind - was perfection and the best A Spelling has produced in my opinion. Pamela Sue Martin, Pamela Bellwood and Katherine leaving the cast was a big blow I think, but - personally - did not stop remaining hooked. Only no no was the UFO (let's ignore that).
