Christopher Cazenove as Ben Carrington

Recommended Posts

  • Members

Christopher Cazenove was too young to play John Forsythe's brother. Other actors closer to Forsythe's age such as Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., Robert Stack, Gene Barry, Cliff Robertson, David Hedison and Stuart Whitman would have been more believable as Dynasty's Ben Carrington.


Any objections?

I thought Christopher Cazenove was great in the role! He popped on screen. But as a Brit he probably should have been Alexis's brother, rather than Blake who sounded like he should be Midwestern upper-crust industrial money.


(As it turns out, John Forsyth was not from the Midwest, but born Jacob Lincoln Freund and raised in Brooklyn in a second generation Polish/Russian-Jewish family. He was also a last-minute replacement for George Peppard in the role of Blake, according to Wikipedia. Interesting!).
