It would give the pasty-white Ewings one additional reason to be aloof to her, and Victoria's features would work.

I never really thought about this. Looking back on it I would say it probably wasn’t necessary though. I think the naturally built in family feud was enough and it worked well.

I dunno
Apparently VP is the youngest person to ever exist in the multiverse. She has a painting of herself that shows an increasing old woman every year. VP's maid discovered it and VP hit her with a phone.
Ha, ha. You talk as if she survived.

Now there's only one person left to deal with. Right @Snarky Oracle ?

Pam should have been 50% Latino. Texas has a large Latino population (roughly 50%) but you couldn't tell that from the almost exclusively white cast. Pam would have been the most obvious prominent character to have been cast with a Latina actress.

Would Digger or Rebecca have been Latino? I think it should be Digger for the reason I posted above (the Southworth's disapproving of the relationship with Ellie). Rebecca could have been a lily-white girl from the wrong side of the tracks who marries well after leaving Digger. This does raise an issue with the ethnicity of Hutch McKinney, I suppose the most logical solution is for Hutch to be Latino, too.

I like the idea of the entire Barnes family being Latino.

I don't like this idea at all sorry.

Victoria played the role as a Caucasian female.

A bit feisty and as an outsider. I don't like the idea of her being one quarter Mexican otherwise when she left Dallas she would have bought Uncle Ben's instead of introducing her skin care range!! ;)

In reality of course, Ben's Original formerly Uncle Ben's is owned by the Stivers family!! :D

If you spell Pam backwards you get MAP...Pam IS the world's oldest, greatest secret to find the lost treasures of Whocanfuukanburgen.
