In all honesty, he might not know how much he's supposed to reveal and it would explain why he hasn't been as harsh on the show as Nathalie Kelley has been.Well here's some scoop that makes this situation even more puzzling (to me at least).
According to the article (who claims they got it from the network, NOT the producers), MacKay is simply "not a series regular" any more, but will appear in a limited number of episodes, and come back later in the season. In daytime they would refer to this as being "bumped down to recurring," as in "non-contract, but still around." Mackay's tweets make it sound much more final. Of course, he might not want to come back later in the season, so it might be final for him.
The article also seems to be teasing some general "tumult" behind the scenes at Dynasty, the sort of hint-dropping they like to do when they can't say it outright.
I do like reading the comments under stories like this. Someone actually mentioned to hire Joan Collins to save the show.here's some scoop that makes this situation even more puzzling
Be patient... As soon as he's going to enjoy his honeymoon with sugar mama Alexis his heart (and ass) will be axed from the show... Enter the real Alexis Colby! Rich and powerful widow... ( Adrianna can't be wrong)I don't think they know Jeff is still there...
Unless they do, and there's simply no room for Steven right now. Let's not forget that O.Sammy Jo disappeared from time to time.and they already dont know where to go with the caracters and story
Yes, they are the stars of this show.One could argue that NuSammy Jo isn't essential either (especially without Steven) but firing Rafael De La Fuente is not an option because they would lose millions and millions of viewers.
He and Fallon are the yin & yang of the show: the ambitious bitch vs. the lazy bum.
Who knows, maybe Nicolexis will go down down in Atlanta downtown, and become this:Yes, there's not much of a choice if she wants to end up as Alexis COLBY, so it must be either Cecil or Jeff.
She clearly wants to punish Blake, after she saw him kissing Cristal from downstairs, so she has to marry the enemy... and rise from trailer-ashes as newborn and powerful ALEXIS COLBY!
Yes, I would suspect it's part of it. As I said, James MacKay haven't been as harsh as Natalie Kelley, so it wouldn't surprise me if they bumped him down to recurring status for the time being. The TvLine article seems to indicate that Steven AND James will be back and will be bringing something surprising along with him (Adam?).It may be a financial decision and they only want to pay the actors who are essential to the current storylines.
Actually, I think it's very in character for him to flee rather than try to face the problems head-on - after all, last time he went on a world tour to save the world was largely due to the pressure of being the male Carrington heir in addition to his previous problems with addiction. I do wish someone would've properly called him out on his tendencies to run, but maybe that's eventually coming since they already has said he'll be back.His possible fatherhood scenario also blew up spectacularly. All this stuff makes it hard for me to buy that he would take off "to think" or to "find himself" rather than face the problems head-on.
I wanted Adam to come back as Amanda. But if the producers want to fire James Mackay, Steven coud be the one who have a gender change. Now that's a twist !It might happen - one of the TvLine articles mentioned that Steven will be back later in the season with a "surprising plot twist". On the other hand, it would also explain why James McKay hasn't seemed as harsh on the show as Natalie Kelley.
Didn´t la Shapiro drop something like when the WC Dienasty was introduced? That there would be a transgender character?I wanted Adam to come back as Amanda. But if the producers want to fire James Mackay, Steven coud be the one who have a gender change. Now that's a twist !
Or he could be back with the same face, that would be nice too.
