I was too young to appreciate it, but watching Dynasty daily on Pop, I can only imagine how exciting it would have been to read all of the casting spumors about The Colbys when I was in the first/second (?) grade. My mom always explained The Colbys to me as "the cousins". Ironically, I knew Stephanie Beacham best from Sister Kate and Troop Beverly Hills, my Sable memories weren't strong. But she is exquisite as Sable, an idol. And Anthena is such a better name than Frankie. I'm still confused... was Kate O'Mara up for Frankie or Sable or both?
