Dynasty - Season 2 - Sharon Lawrence to Guest as Liam's Mother

EW can exclusively reveal that Dynasty has cast Sharon Lawrence (The Ranch) in the role of Laura Van Kirk (of the New York Van Kirks). Laura is described as “Liam’s well-bred, erudite mother who is so overpowering and manipulative that she puts Fallon’s mother, Alexis, to shame.”

However, Fallon will have to keep her opinions to herself if she wants Laura’s approval. And, according to Laura’s character description, “Upon meeting this she-devil, Fallon understands how Liam could easily fill a book with all the trauma from his childhood.”

“We’re super thrilled that this series has resonated in 190 countries,” said Miranda de Pencier, Executive Producer. “I’m also very proud that we make our show in Canada with a wonderfully talented group of artists – led by the brilliant Moira Walley-Beckett. The character of Anne gives people permission to be themselves because she is so resoundingly herself. There are so many walls being built and so much fear growing in the world right now and Anne offers us a reminder that it’s okay to stay positive, be kind, and to dream, no matter how tough life gets - which is inspiration we all need.”
