Dynasty has its first star. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Vampire Diaries star Nathalie Kelley has joined the CW reboot pilot.
Based on the classic ’80s show, the drama “follows two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud for control over their fortune and their children.”
Kelley will play Cristal, the soon-to-be stepmother of Fallon Carrington, the daughter of Blake Carrington, the role played by John Forsythe in the original ABC soap.

The drama 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 WASPy 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.”
