Elizabeth Gillies essays the role starting with the first season of the reboot series. Fallon regularly butts heads with her father’s new fiancée, Cristal. The rivalry between Cristal and Fallon is a primary focus of the earlier seasons of the show. Fallon continually tries to drive a wedge between Cristal and her father while also attempting to undermine Cristal at work.
