She personally added what she calls a "Devil may care" to the character in early production, to show the world that Fallon was not just an evil, rich brat begging for power, but rather, that Fallon was a talented young woman, who desired things she didn't know how to get. Her portrayal is so rich and dense, full of instances hinting layers of emotion behind the words, the facial expressions, and the body language.

  • Whatever happened to her?

    Pamela Sue Martin looked to be on her way in the early 80's. She'd appeared in the hugely successful disaster flick, The Poseidon Adventure, and then starred as Nancy Drew on TV. The latter show wasn't that good despite her best efforts but that didn't stop Pamela Sue from winning the plum role of Fallon Carrington on Dynasty. She played the role of Fallon with gusto for three seasons and was one of the most popular actresses on television. Then, out of the blue, Pamela Sue quits her role on Dynasty in order to pursue "other projects." Since then she's appeared in.......well, not much of anything. I don't know whatever happened to Pamela Sue but I wish her the best and I hope she's doing well. Evidently, Hollywood was not her cup of tea but we can all be glad that she gave us what she did while she was there.moreless
