Nickelodeon sure knows how to propel its stars to victory! The former star of Dan Schneider’s“Victorious”, Liz Gillies, is taking her own steps towards professional success with a lead role on the hit TV series “Dynasty”. The soap opera, a reboot of the super popular 1980s classic, follows two feuding families and their schemes for power.
Known for playing the beloved character Jade on “Victorious”, Liz Gillies continues her reputation of portraying complex, sassy characters with the role of Fallon Carrington. But Liz takes it up a notch with her scheming character and Schneiderverse fans will be pumped to see her in action. As the ambitious businesswoman and daughter of an oil tycoon, Fallon’s goal is to take over the family business from her billionaire father — until he marries a rival employee. Can you say drama?!?
While some of the characters may have the same names as the original “Dynasty” series, it’s a fairly original story. Liz says she wanted to pay homage to the original character for fans, but that she wanted to create a completely unique character as well. Now, the story and setting are updated for modern day fans to enjoy.
But how did Liz Gillies decide to play a character from such a vintage TV show? In an interview with Teen Vogue, Gillies says, “I just really fell in love with Fallon, and how they re-imagined her to fit 2017. I then went back and watched a ton of “Dynasty” and I decided I needed to do this job.”
Part of the reason Liz was drawn to the role, she says, is due to the way her character redefines gender stereotypes.She mentions that her character has the bravado to control business meetings and put haters in their place, but she wants to be a daddy’s girl at the same time.
Not only that, Liz says she is super stoked that her “Victorious” fans can watch her portray a new character…and so they can have another example of a super-empowered and smart businesswoman on TV.
“It’s going to be really fun for them to get to see these two women commanding boardrooms, and taking names,” Gillies says of her character Fallon, and Fallon’s new stepmother, Cristal, played by Nathalie Kelley.
We’re sure that plenty of Nickelodeon and Schneiderverse fans — and tons of new ones — are going to be name checking Liz Gillies on their favorite actress lists in no time!
Although we miss seeing Jade pop up on “Victorious” or “iCarly”, we’re definitely happy to see her fierce self back on a freakin’ awesome TV show! You can catch “Dynasty” on the CW on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. E/C. Enjoy watching Liz on this glamorous drama.
“Drake & Josh” is one of Nickelodeon’s most successful sitcoms. From popular lines like “Hug me brotha,” to “I ain’t callin’ you a truther,” this duo has created countless memories for millions of people. Fans of this Dan Schneider show know they made four seasons, but did you know they made a Christmas movie a few years later?
It’s called “Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh,” and was the third most-viewed TV movie on cable. The film originally aired on Nickelodeon on December 5, 2008, to just over 8 million viewers.
It’s fun to see “Drake & Josh” so festive, and during the holidays, what better way to celebrate than getting nostalgic with our favorite TV characters?
Fun fact: though the movie is a celebration of Christmas, actor Josh Peck is actually Jewish. In an interview at Cornell University, Josh reveals a few things about himself, including the fact that he’s proudly Jewish and that he and Drake Bell didn’t like each other at first. Check out the article here if you want to learn more!
Through a series of crazy events, Drake ends up meeting a little girl at the mall while dressed as Santa. She says she wants the best Christmas ever, and Drake tells her he’s going to make it happen (Remind anyone else of a certain “Kenan & Kel” Christmas special?).
Anyway, what Drake doesn’t realize is that he can’t break a Christmas promise‒‒it’s the rules as stated in the movie itself. Unbeknownst to Drake, the bottom is about to fall out from under both him and Josh, making it exceedingly difficult for them to fulfill their promise.
Long story short: Josh goes to jail, gets beat up by an inmate named Bludge (Kimbo Slice), and must outwit a cop who has it out for Christmas. Drake also has his own problems in the film, but you’ll have to watch it to get the full story!
For longtime fans of the show, “Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh” is a holiday tradition! So grab your brotha and a cup of hot cocoa and settle in for some laughs and Christmas cheer.
