The Show Falcon Crest, Cast, and Trivia!
This is a series about two main families that are involved in the wine-making industry, the Channing’s and the Gilberto’s. The families were always at odds with one another, as well as being related. It was set in the Tuscany Valley (although fictitious, it was very closely based on the Napa Valley), and revolved around the Falcon Crest vineyards and winery. The domineering matriarch of the family, Angela Channing (Jane Wyman), rules with an iron fist, and allows no one to get in her way. In the first show, Angela’s brother, Jason Gioberti, dies from a fall in the winery. His son, Chase (Robert Foxworth) returns home with his family after the death, having inherited a piece of the winery and vineyards much to Angela’s despair. And thus, the battle begins.
Angela Channing (Jane Wyman)-Angela is the strong-willed, ruthless, tough and powerful matriarch of Falcon Crest. She has two daughters and a grandson, and is determined to preserve the heritage of her family for her heirs. Although sometimes appearing cold and uncaring, she truly does love her family and wants the best for them, though she would prefer of course that they didn’t get in her way. Angela Channing has every intention of making Falcon Crest the best in the world, and she won’t stop until she reaches her goal.
Chase Gioberti (Robert Foxworth)-Chase is the nephew of Angela Channing, and a source of constant irritation to her as well. Upon his return to Tuscany Valley from New York after his fathers’ death, he decides that he wants to stay and run the winery. He is married with two children, and is a Vietnam vet. He also used to be a commercial airline pilot, and still likes to fly in his personal life. Chase is an upstanding, caring and dedicated man, although he does have somewhat of a short temper!
Lance Cumson (Lorenzo Lamas)-Lance is the grandson of the powerful Angela Channing, and the son of Angela’s daughter, Julia. He is known to be somewhat of a playboy, and at the beginning of the show seems uncaring of Falcon Crest and its lands, seeming more interested in the wealth and lifestyle that it can bring him, but not the work. He is forced by his grandmother to marry the selfish heiress of the Agretti Vineyards, Melissa Agretti (Ana Alicia), so that Angela can acquire the lands. Later, he seems less immature and more dedicated to becoming the kind of heir that Angela expects him to become.
Maggie Gioberti (Susan Sullivan)-Maggie is the wife of Chase Gioberti and a freelance writer. She is loving, warm and kind-hearted, but also strong. She fully supports her husbands’ intention of creating a new life in the Tuscany Valley for the both of them and their children. She is often the one person whom everyone feels that they can count on to help and talk to about their problems.
Richard Channing (David Selby)-Richard is the illegitimate son of Angela’s husband, Douglas Channing. Upon his death, Richard inherits half of his father’s newspaper called the “San Francisco Globe”. He at first appears as uncaring and more of a villain, in addition to being a formidable adversary of both Chase and Angela. However, over time, ends up becoming sympathetic and a favorite character of the show.
Julia Cumson (Abby Dalton)-Julia is Angela’s oldest daughter and the mother of Lance. She is the wine-maker at Falcon Crest, but is continually unhappy because of the control her mother seems to exert over her life. Even going so far as to drive Julia’s husband, Tony Cumson away. Later, Julia goes down a dangerous road and is set on a completely different path for her life.
Melissa Agretti (Ana Alicia and Delores Cantu)-Melissa is the daughter of Carlos Agretti (deceased), of the Agretti Vineyards. She is soon married to Angela’s grandson and heir, Lance Cumson. Melissa is a rich, spirited and beautiful woman, who mostly cares only about herself. She has a son, Joseph, whom she does love with all her heart, but other than him and a few moments of passion and short-lived romances, she just wants wealth and power and doesn’t care who she has to step on to get them.
Emma Channing (Margaret Ladd)-Emma is the youngest daughter of Angela Channing and has a somewhat fragile mental and emotional state. This is due to a past incident involving her Uncle Jason’s death by accident and her part in it. Regardless of this, she is an extremely kind and loving woman with a good heart and the best of intentions. Because of her “delicate” nature, Emma’s mother has always done everything she can to control her youngest child, despite the wishes of Emma herself.
Cole Gioberti (William R. Moses)-Cole is the son of Chase and Maggie Gioberti and about the same age as his cousin, Lance. This makes for many interesting and complicated situations, especially regarding Melissa Agretti. When his father inherits part of Falcon Crest, Cole forgets about his desire to follow in his grandfather’s footsteps and become an archeologist, and instead assists his father with the running of the vineyards. He is kind, loving, and loyal to the people that he loves.
Terry Hartford (Laura Johnson)-Terry is the calculating younger sister of Maggie Gioberti. Terry is a former call-girl who sets her sights on becoming a wealthy, important member of society, and it makes no difference how she gets there. She is also not above lying or using blackmail as a means to an end.
Vicki Gioberti (Jamie Rose and Dana Sparks)-Vicki is the daughter of Chase and Maggie Gioberti and seems to have issues when dealing with men. She is not exactly thrilled at the idea of moving to the Tuscany Valley, and seems to have a difficult time in finding her niche.
Phillip Erikson (Mel Ferrer)-Phillip is the lawyer of Angela Channing. He is devious, unscrupulous and out to further Angela’s reputation in any way that he can. If there is a way to increase her power, whether it’s through blackmail, bribery, or whatever the case may be, he is the man to do it.
Pamela Lynch (Sarah Douglas and Martine Beswick)-Pamela is Richard Channing’s personal assistant and a former employee of the Cartel (a mafia-like group). Though she does have a softer side at times, she is mostly known to be deceitful and scheming, and very creative when it comes to getting something she wants.
Greg Reardon (Simon MacCorkindale)-Greg is a British lawyer who also works for Angela Channing. However, unlike another of her lawyers, Phillip Erikson, Greg is not given to agree with Angela on her ways of getting what she wants on most occasions. This of course leads to an assortment of problems between employer and employee.
Gustav Riebmann (Paul Freeman)-Gustav is the head of the evil and deadly Cartel. Of course this was accomplished by Gustav murdering his own father, for which he bears no remorse. He then moves to the Tuscany Valley in order to set into motion another plan for which he will also hold no remorse, but will certainly affect the lives of many more.
Father Christopher Rossini (Ken Olin)-Father Rossini is a priest and in time is found to be the illegitimate son of Julia Cumson. After his birth, when Julia was only a teenager, Angela told her the baby had died, and sent him to a Catholic orphanage in Connecticut to be raised. As the entire story slowly emerges, there are many who are surprised.
Peter Stavros (Cesar Romero)-Peter is a Greek, ex-boyfriend, billionaire industrialist who knew Angela Channing when they were young. He again manages to become someone of importance in her life, even after the passing of many years.
Eric Stavros (John Callahan)-Eric is the son of billionaire Peter Stavros. An arrogant, sophisticated and
somewhat uncaring playboy-type of a man.
Dan Fixx (Brett Cullen)-Dan is the son of former friends’ of Angela’s, Tucker and Elizabeth Fixx. Dan is returning to the Tuscany Valley after a stint in an Oklahoma prison and is in need of a job. Angela decides to hire him as the manager of her spa, and also to be someone who can report back to her on the comings and goings of the guests.
Frank Agretti (Rod Taylor)-Frank is an old acquaintance of Angela, as well as Melissa’s uncle. Melissa wants nothing to do with her long-lost relative. Angela, however, is happy to see him but her happiness is soon dashed when she finds out that he is dying of pancreatic cancer and has only a short time left to live.
Nick Agretti (David Beecroft)-Nick is the son of Frank Agretti, and the cousin of Melissa. He also has a teenage son named, Ben, as the result of a relationship from many years ago, with Anna Cellini, an Italian heiress.
Pilar Ortega (Kristian Alfonso)-Pilar is the daughter of the winery foreman at Falcon Crest, named Cesar. She is also an attraction to Angela’s grandson, Lance, (and not for the first time). When they were teenagers, Lance and Pilar had a romance, but where it will go as adults only time will tell.
Lauren Sharpe (Wendy Phillips)-Lauren is the second cousin to Maggie Gioberti. She also becomes a love interest to the powerful Richard Channing.
Michael Sharpe (Gregory Harrison)-Michael is a cold-blooded businessman who will go to almost any length to win a fight. He is also Lauren’s brother and the second cousin of Maggie Gioberti.
Genele Ericson (Andrea Thompson)-Genele is the lover of Michael Sharpe and the niece of Frank Agretti.
Chao-Li (Chao-Li Chi)-Chao-Li is Angela Channing’s ever faithful majordomo, driver and friend. And though their friendship is rarely shown, it is strong and outlasts most of the relationships on the series.
This show is filled with detailed storylines regarding business, family and romance. The twists and turns of the Channing and Gioberti families keeps you entertained and the flow of well-known actors is constantly providing a new and interesting facet that makes you come back time after time. And while it of course had some of the concepts of other popular prime-time soaps of its time, (Dallas, Dynasty and Knots Landing) it also had the beauty of the Napa Valley where some of the actual filming took place. This was on for nine seasons, and though it definitely lost its appeal toward the end, it was still worth watching most of the series. Overall, I give it 6 out of 10.

Earl Hamner is the creator of Falcon Crest, as well as the popular show, “The Waltons”.
David Selby and Jane Wyman grew close while co-starring on Falcon Crest together. When Wyman died in 2007, Selby was both devastated and grief-stricken.
Lorenzo Lamas is the only actor to have been in all 227 episodes of Falcon Crest.
Ana Alicia (Melissa Agretti) was on two episodes of the series, Renegade, with former co-star, Lorenzo Lamas.
On two completely separate occasions from each other in the 1970’s, actress Morgan Fairchild was kidnapped and held against her will.
Falcon Crest had a habit of casting former Hollywood royalty for guest spots and other small roles.
Robert Foxworth (Chase Gioberti) was originally cast as J.R. Ewing on the popular series, “Dallas”. Foxworth however, did not want to play such a “hard” character and asked that J.R. be softened. In the end, he was replaced with the talented, Larry Hagman.
Cesar Romero (Peter Stavros) played the character of the “Joker”, on the ABC television series in the late 60’s. He refused to shave off his moustache for the role, so the thick white face make-up used for the part was spread over top of it.
Jane Wyman (born Sarah Jane Mayfield), died in her sleep from natural causes at the age of 90.
Soap Opera Digest listed Falcon Crests’ eight seasons as “Most Ruined Show”
Laura Johnson (Terry Hartford) was married to actor Harry Hamlin for four years.
Jane Wyman, Margaret Ladd and Lorenzo Lamas, were the only original remaining cast members by the shows’ final season.
While in college, Susan Sullivan (Maggie Gioberti) worked as a Playboy Bunny.
Due to health issues, Jane Wyman (Angela Channing) was missing from most of the final season. She did however return for the series’ last three shows, despite her doctors’ adamant medical advice against doing so.
Many of the exterior shots and backdrops for the series were filmed at “Spring Mountain Vineyard”, in St. Helena, which is located in the Napa Valley. The Spring Mountain Vineyard was a winery and also included a Victorian mansion called “Villa Miraville” from 1884. The Villa Miraville was used for all the exterior shots of what were supposed to be the Falcon Crest mansion where Angela Channing and her family lived.
Robert Foxworth and Elizabeth Montgomery (Bewitched), had a relationship for nearly twenty years, and then married for two, before her death in 1995.
Mel Ferrer (Phillip Erikson) was married a total of five times. His fourth wife was the famous and incredibly talented, Audrey Hepburn. They were married for fourteen years and had one child, a son named Sean.
Lorenzo Lamas (Lance Cumson), has countless black belts that he has won in real-life. He used some of these skills on another one of his television series’, called “Renegade”.
David Selby played the part of Abraham Lincoln on stage, while appearing with President Barack Obama, on the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. The scene he played was from “The Heavens are Hung in Black”, and was done at the historic re-opening of the famous, “Ford’s Theater”.
The Spring Mountain Vineyard produced two different wines with a Falcon Crest label during the run of the television show.
The role of Angela Channing almost went to Jane Wyman’s friend, Barbara Stanwyck, but Stanwyck turned it down.
During Ronald Reagan’s entire political career, Wyman stayed silent. At his death, however, she made this statement about her ex-husband, “America has lost a great president and a great, kind, and gentle man”.
Ana Alicia (Melissa Agretti) is a national spokesperson for The Humane Society.
Esther Williams was the stepmother of Lorenzo Lamas.
It was rumored that Robert Foxworth and Jane Wyman had a running feud with each other while the two were on the show together. Supposedly they actually measured their dressing rooms’ to make sure that neither of them was bigger than the other.
Kristian Alfonso (Pilar Ortega) although best known for her acting and a role on the daytime soap opera “Days of Our Lives”, has also had several other successful careers. When she was young, she had a career as a figure skater, so much so that she won a gold medal at the Junior Olympics. At the age of 13, however, her skating career was gone in an instant due to a disastrous tobogganing accident. Not letting this stop her, she moved on to a modeling career and by the age of 15, had appeared on a number of magazine covers, such as “Vogue” and “Harper’s Bazaar”.
Morgan Fairchild (Jordan Roberts) had scarlet fever as a child and was left partially deaf because of it.
The role of Kit Marlowe was played by actress Kim Novak, who had a dual role. This was a tribute to the famous dual role that she had in the movie “Vertigo” in 1958. There is a scene between her character and Richard Channing (David Selby), deliberately set at Fort Point near the Golden Gate Bridge. This was done in reminiscence of a scene she had at that exact spot with screen legend Jimmy Stewart.
Falcon Crest was not the first time that Lorenzo Lamas and Jane Wyman had met. Wyman had worked with Lorenzo’s father, Fernando, on her TV show from the 1950’s, “Jane Wyman Presents The Fireside Theatre”. So she had known Lorenzo since he was a baby.
