Another one of the original stars of "Dallas" will be joining TNT’s new incarnation of the prime-time soap, TV Guide reports. Audrey Landers, who originated the role of Afton Cooper, Cliff Barnes’ (Ken Kercheval) lover, will be part of the show’s second season.
Landers told the publication, "I do not know for how many episodes or when, but it’s a definite. I do know it’s not going to be in the beginning of the season. I am just really, really excited, because it feels like going back home. I’m also so happy for the fans who have been so persistent all these months. Now they won’t be disappointed!"
TNT’s "Dallas" returns for season two in January. While the TNT version focuses on a newer generation of the Ewing clan, Kercheval is one of the cast members from the original CBS show who is already on board with the reboot, along with Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray and others.
