Kirby Anders is a main character on The CW's Dynasty. She is portrayed by Maddison Brown.

Daughter of Carrington majordomo Joseph Anders, Kirby grew up in the staff's living quarters of Carrington Manor... and sides with the downstairs occupants more than the upstairs. Kirby has a fraught history with the Carringtons, more specifically Alexis, who is soon revealed to have orchestrated her banishment from Atlanta and separation from her father at the age of 12. While Kirby returns to make amends with her father, she continues to wreak havoc on the lives of those who wronged her in the past.

Kirby matures during her time in the manor, building strong and lasting friendships with Sam Jones and former foe, Fallon Carrington. She dabbles in fields such as publishing and hospitality before pursuing a career in modeling, and she has a string of romantic endeavors that include the likes of Michael Culhane and Adam Carrington before ultimately finding love and settling down with Amanda Carrington.

Biography[]

Early Life[]

Kirby EL 201
Kirby as a child. ("Twenty-Three Skidoo")

Kirby is born to a mother of Australian descent and a father, Joseph Anders, from New Zealand. ("A Line From the Past") Little is known about Kirby's upbringing with both parents present, but after their divorce, she resides with her father in Atlanta, at the Carrington Manor where Joseph works as the family's majordomo. Kirby grows up alongside Steven and Fallon Carrington, the former of which, unbeknownst to Kirby, is her paternal half-brother, as well as Jeff and Monica Colby, who she related to due to the circumstances of their affiliation with the Carringtons. ("Ship of Vipers") Kirby recalls Steven as the Carrington who was the nicest to her ("Queen of Cups"), whereas she often butted heads with Fallon, stirring up trouble in ways such as cutting off the heads to Fallon's dolls, leaving lizards under her pillows, and releasing her pets from their cages to roam freely in the manor. ("Dead Scratch", "The Butler Did It") Despite their differences, Fallon and Kirby participated in activities together as children, such as working at the tennis club as ball girls ("How Two-Faced Can You Get?") and going on camping trips with their Girl Scouts troop. ("But I Don't Need Therapy")

Kirby EL 203
Kirby is exiled from Atlanta. ("The Butler Did It")

One day, at the age of 12, however, Kirby's life changes when she hides in the Carrington wine cellar after letting Fallon's rabbit out of its cage. Kirby overhears a conversation between her father and Carrington matriarch, Alexis Carrington, in which the latter vents to Joseph about her failing marriage and her fears of a one night stand the two had being exposed. When Joseph leaves to help Fallon find her pet, Alexis discovers a hidden Kirby, furious that the majordomo's daughter was eavesdropping. Kirby was too young to understand the conversation she overheard, but Alexis viewed Kirby as a liability, and a few days later Fallon's bedroom was set on fire and Kirby was blamed. The Carringtons banish Kirby from Atlanta, forcing her to live with her mother in Australia who, at this point, is addicted to heroin. ("The Butler Did It", "The Aftermath")

Kirby EL 120
Letters to Anders. ("A Line From the Past")

In Australia, Kirby's life spirals out of control due to her mother's addiction and neglect. She fails to complete high school ("There's No Need to Panic"), and she goes down a path similar to her mother's that involves heavy partying and drug abuse. Despite the chaos in her family, Kirby recalls Christmas being a fresh start where, for a few days, no one fought and all was forgiven. ("That Holiday Spirit") Kirby becomes romantically involved with a photographer, Oliver Noble, to Joseph's disapproval, who has continued to keep tabs on Kirby since her banishment. Kirby and Oliver's relationship concludes when Oliver overdoses and Kirby abandons him on the steps on the steps of a hospital. ("Equal Justice for the Rich")

Season 1[]

Joseph Anders first mentioned his family during a conversation with Sam Jones in "A Line From the Past" and revealed that his daughter, Kirby, lives with her mother in Australia. Anders later called her but hung up before he could talk to her.

Shortly after Sam married Steven, Sam confessed that he had invited Kirby so that Anders could see her again. Sam realized his mistake when Steven and Fallon told him Kirby used to live with the Carringtons when she was a child and tormented Fallon, citing the decapitation and burning of her barbie dolls as an example.

Kirby appeared at the Carrington Mansion in "Dead Scratch" and greeted her father. A cigarette in her hand and her face unseen, just after someone set the barn on fire with the grooms, and some of the Carrington family, locked inside.

Season 2[]

I want everything. Everything you took from me when you had me shipped back to Australia. I'm gonna take your friends, your family, your whole damn world.
Kirby Anders, vowing revenge against Fallon Carrington.[src]

In "The Butler Did It", Kirby revealed she held a grudge against Fallon because she thought it was Fallon's fault that she was exiled from the Carrington Estate. However, she learned later that she was exiled because Alexis framed Kirby for burning Fallon's bedroom. Kirby learned about it when she overheard a conversation between Alexis and Anders regarding an affair that resulted in Alexis getting pregnant with Steven.

Kirby finds herself homeless due to Blake's "circling the wagon" in preparation of his pending murder investigation. Her severed friendship with Fallon and her father's misguided loyalty to the Carringtons leave her to exit in disgust; though, Anders ultimately follows the advice of his daughter and resigns as majordomo. With no where else to go, Kirby finds shelter in the Femperial Publishing office, the company in which she is now CEO. ("Guilt Trip to Alaska")

Season 4[]

I don't think you're a monster. You're not the only one with secrets in their past.
Kirby to Adam Carrington[src]

in "That Unfortunate Dinner", Kirby is in the loft with Adam and she expresses her frustration with the bizarre conspiracy her father is spinning about Adam and how dangerous he is. She lets Adam know that Joseph is messaging her so frequently. As Kirby keeps ranting, Adam quickly takes a look into her phone to know Joseph's location. After learning the needed information, Adam asks Kirby to leave as he has an important call to attend to.

At rehearsal dinner, Adam walks out looking for Blake. Kirby and Culhane have a heart to heart, and she thanks him for never thinking she is crazy despite her reputation.

Later, Kirby accidentally reveals that the new officiant is the person Cristal is sleeping with. Everything begins to escalate, fights ensue, and Blake punches the priest in the face. Fallon has had enough, leaving to go home.

Kirby walks into the room and sees Adam packing his things, ignoring her, she grabs his arm and he confesses that yes, he did push Alexis into the fire, yes he was responsible for his mother’s death, and he believes that Anders knows something. He says he didn’t want to tell her because she would think of him as a monster, but she reassures him that he’s not the only one with secrets.

in "Vows Are Still Sacred", Kirby is attempting to help Fallon pick out her shoes for the wedding and so far, no luck. Alexis walks in and says that maybe she should consider flats since she’ll be walking on grass but Fallon claims that with the right sherpa and oxygen, she could climb Mount Everest in heels. After finally lacing up a pair of heels, when she stands up she instantly twists her ankle and falls to the floor. Sam suggests she use Blake as a crutch when they’re walking down the aisle, but Fallon needs more, so she asks Alexis to help, too.

Kirby is present when Fallon changes into her wedding dress. Sometime Later, Sam gets a text from Fallon who is now at the high school with Liam. She wants him to officiate there and for Kirby to bring her shoes. However, they must try to be as discreet as possible. Kirby is in Fallon’s closet collecting the shoes. Behind her in the mirror Evan can be seen. As she’s rushing out of the room he corners her and says he needs to talk to Fallon about something, urgently, and he asks Kirby where she is. Kirby won’t budge. He tries to take her phone but she hits him over the head with the bag and tries to get away. Evan grabs her leg and stabs her. He takes her phone and leaves her to bleed out on the floor.

A period of time passes by when Adam gets off the phone with Shelly and sees the bloody handprint on the door to Fallon’s room. He rushes in and sees Kirby laying there, unconscious. Anders too enters the room and assumes that Adam did this. He points a gun at Adam and says that if Kirby dies so will he.

In "The Aftermath", Kirby is being rolled into the OR after being stabbed by Evan Tate. Adam tries to follow but Anders stops him in his tracks and tells him he’s going nowhere near Kirby. Sam tries to reason with him by reminding Anders that Fallon said Evan is the one who hurt her, not Adam. Adam insists on helping because he is a surgeon after all, and Anders reluctantly agrees.

At The Carrington Manor, Kirby is coming back from the hospital, and Fallon tells an annoyed Liam that she will be taking care of Kirby (and Blake). Fallon assisting Blake and Kirby continues until they’ve both had enough and “fire” her for some real care instead. On the bright side, Fallon has finally agreed to go on her planned honeymoon with Liam.

Adam and Kirby are playing cards when Anders apologizes to both Kirby and Adam, saying he won’t go to the police with any information he has. However, as he exits the room, he makes the decision to keep his voice recording of Adam.

In "Everybody Loves The Carringtons", At the Carrington Manor, Culhane pays a visit to Kirby, who has been locked away for two weeks while she recovers from her stab wound at the hands of Evan Tate, and wants a piece of exciting news. Culhane tells her that the league named him owner of the year. They share a hug as Adam walks in and interrupts them, asking what the exciting news was about. Upon finding out, he teases Culhane about the Atlantic game the night prior.

Kirby runs into Victor Diaz at La Mirage and he offers her a drink. She grabs what she needs to from his pocket and hands it to Culhane before meeting Victor at the bar. As he begins flirting, Adam pops in and asks Kirby who she’s meeting with. As Adam winds Victor up, he tells him he was joking, and that he’s a big fan, letting him know he was the team doctor before Victor joined. Victor realizes he’s lost his phone, but remembers he can track it from his watch. He finds out that it’s somewhere in the hotel, as Culhane is finishing up downloading what he needs from it. Adam and Kirby try to stall as long as they can, but Culhane shows up with his phone and hands it back to him. Adam asks if he got the proof and he says he did, but the gambling thing is much bigger than expected.

Season 5[]

Personality[]

Kirby was introduced as a rebellious, party-loving, wild-child with a dangerous air to her. The rumors regarding her past made her seem as though she were crazy when, in reality, she wasn't. While her mental health fluctuates, Kirby is fiercely independent and capable of caring for herself. Being banished from the manor and torn from her father at such a young age created lasting issues in Kirby's persona. Her sarcastic remarks and jaded side are her way of pushing people that could be beneficial for her away. Upon settling in at the manor once again, Kirby began to let her intellectual and business-savvy side through. Kirby even outsmarted Fallon by acquiring Femperial Publishing through nefarious means. While her intentions to keep the company feminist and modern were pure, she was impulsive in her decision and was unable to support the company by herself.

Kirby has keen instincts and bright ideas but doesn't always articulate her thoughts in the best manner. She can be withdrawn and doesn't trust others while simultaneously longing for a sense of family and belonging. When she is loyal and feels loyalty exchanged, it is difficult for someone to break that bond. This was that was seen during her time at the synergy group that took advantage of Kirby the moment she trusted them. She has since begun to fall for Adam Carrington, the most mentally unstable yet charming Carrington boy. While she connects with Adam she is naive in her feelings that he has changed or can change.
