Dynasty is getting another Cristal! Deadline reports Daniella Alonso has joined the CW series’ upcoming third season.
A reboot of the ’80s primetime soap, the drama series centers on the wealthy Carrington family and the energy empire they must defend against the Colbys and other adversaries, as well as each other. The cast also includes Grant Show, Alan Dale, Elizabeth Gillies, James Mackay, Sam Adegoke, Robert Christopher Riley, Rafael de la Fuente, and Maddison Brown.
