STEPHANIE BEACHAM, THE COLBYS
It's difficult for a new soap to establish a clearly-defined identity. Sets and costumes help, but in the final analysis, the burden falls on the characters and the writing. To that end, THE COLBYS scored a resounding success with the casting of Stephanie Beacham as Sable Colby. From the moment this sleek, chic, dragon lady slithered on screen, you knew who she was, where she was coming from and what she stood for.
Charming and manipulative, Sable projects vulnerability and viciousness. She is easily the most fascinating character THE COLBYS has to offer, and to that end, praise must be given to her portrayer. Beacham knows just how to play her role for maximum effect. When Sable Colby is around, everyone watches -- and listens.
