From left to right:
ANN RYLAND EWING (played by Brenda Strong) – A pure blue-blooded Texan but you wouldn’t guess it. She may know champagne and caviar, but talks hog and hominy. Carelessly elegant,optimistic, good-humored, Ann’s got eyes in the back of her head and is game for anything.
BOBBY JAMES EWING (played by Patrick Duffy) – His hair a little grayer, his face etched with character, Bobby’s still the same dynamic, compassionate man who always insisted on playing fair.
CHRISTOPHER EWING (played by Jesse Metcalfe) – The new acumen and entrepreneurial vigor of the Ewing clan. Smart, attractive, effective, he has the guarded eyes of someone who’s already mixed it up with life.
REBECCA SUTTER (played by Julie Gonzalo) - A beautiful, spontaneous young woman, Rebecca seduces those around with her direct manner. Fiancée of Christoher Ewing.
JR Ewing (played by Larry Hagman) - Life has not been kind to the former Oil tycoon.
ELENA RAMOS (played by Jordana Brewster) – A proud, beautiful woman with a whirring Swiss timepiece for a mind, less assured. Currently in a relationship with John Ross and has a long history with the Ewing family.
JOHN ROSS EWING (played by Josh Henderson) – A powerful man, he is charismatic, seductive; you have to be careful not to fall in love with him, because you already sense that he’s his father’s son: ambitious, burning with a need to be noticed.
SUE ELLEN EWING (played by Linda Gray ) - Many-years-clean-and-sober, finally seems at peace with the gracious Southern belle she was raised to be — before life with J.R. coldcocked her. She looks fantastic.
