Fancy Lopez-Fitzgerald (née Crane) is a fictional character on the NBC/DirecTV soap opera "Passions" and is portrayed by actress Emily Harper from the May 13, 2005, episode through the series finale. Following her debut, Fancy quickly becomes one of the soap's lead heroines — Harper appears in 209 out of the 254 episodes that aired in 2006, a feat surpassed only by Lindsay Hartley (Theresa).Emily Harper's 2006 episode ranking [] , accessed March 13, 2008.]

Introduced in the May 13, 2005, episode alongside fellow Harmonyite Noah Bennett in Las Vegas, Fancy is quickly characterized as a vain, spoiled celebutante comparable to Paris Hilton and is soon revealed to be one of the frequently mentioned but heretofore unseen daughters of Julian and Ivy Crane; she is also established to be the favorite granddaughter of billionaire supervillain Alistair Crane and is later revealed to be the sole heiress to his empire. Fancy's first year of storylines is dominated by her off-and-on relationship with Noah and the conflict that it creates between herself and Alistair. With the middle-class Noah, Fancy begins her transformation from a spoiled princess into a caring, responsible young woman, but their relationship is eventually torn apart by Noah's lies and Alistair's machinations.

Nursing her heartbreak in Rome, Fancy befriends her aunt's ex-fiancé, Luis Lopez-Fitzgerald, and joins him in his search for his son, and Fancy's cousin, Marty, furthering her process of maturation. Luis and Fancy eventually fall in love and become one of the program's central couples, bitterly dividing some fans of the couple and those who prefer Luis with Sheridan and/or Fancy with Noah. [ Dear Tabby] , December 31, 2007, issue.] Nonetheless, Fancy's storylines since mid-2006 center on her romance with Luis and subsequent rivalry with her aunt, Sheridan, and sister, Pretty, for his affection. Despite numerous obstacles, Luis and Fancy are married in the July 23, 2008, episode, and Fancy announces her pregnancy in the series finale.

Character history

Early life

Fancy CraneIt has been insinuated that Fancy's legal name is simply "Fancy", though, because Fox is short for Nicholas Foxworth, it is entirely possible that Fancy is a nickname, too.] was born under the sign of Capricorn (December 22 — January 19) in 1980 to Julian Linus Crane, an executive at Crane Industries and the eldest son of ruthless multi-billionaire Alistair Ephraim Crane and his first wife, Katherine Crane (née Barrett), and Ivy Crane (née Winthrop), a socialite and the daughter of the late former Governor Harrison Winthrop and his wife, the late Helen Winthrop (née Revere-Mott-Beaton). Fancy is the scion of numerous wealthy, prominent families that immigrated to North America before the American Revolutionary War — her paternal grandfather is a descendant of William Ephraim Crane, a magistrate who ordered Tabitha Lenox's execution in 1693, sparking Tabitha's vendetta against the Crane family, and her maternal grandmother was a descendant of Paul Revere. Fancy is largely of English descent, with some French ancestry,Paul Revere's father was French.] and was brought up, to some degree, as a Roman Catholic.

Fancy was raised as the second of four children — Ethan Crane (later Winthrop), who was revealed to be her maternal half-brother in 2001, is about five years her seniorEthan was born in the spring of 1975, making him four-and-a-half to nearly six years older than Fancy, depending on their months of birth.] , while Fox Crane"Dear Tabby", March 21, 2008. [] ] and Pretty Crane are a few years her junior. While they were raised in the lap of luxury, the Crane siblings, excluding Ethan, had a dysfunctional childhood, with Ivy admitting that her youngest three children had a father who was "either absent or intoxicated" and a mother "who just didn't care".cite episode |title= |episodelink= |url= |series= Passions|serieslink= Passions|credits= |network= DirecTV|station= |city= |airdate= 2007-09-25|began= |ended= |season= 9|number= 6|minutes= |transcript= |transcripturl=] Ivy favored Ethan over her other children because he was the son of her "true love", Sam Bennett, and not her husband, whom she loathed, and Fancy, as well as her younger siblings, came to resent their mother for this. Though younger brother Fox is equally angry with Julian, Fancy never expresses the same sort of bitterness against her father, whom she remembers taking her and best friend Esme Vanderheusen out for ice cream when they were in the third grade.cite episode |title= |episodelink= |url= |series= Passions|serieslink= Passions|credits= |network= DirecTV|station= |city= |airdate= 2007-11-19|began= |ended= |season= 9|number= 37|minutes= |transcript= |transcripturl=]

Despite being virtually ignored by her parents during her formative years, Fancy did fare better than her younger siblings; since her birth, Fancy has been her grandfather Alistair's favorite relativecite episode |title= |episodelink= |url= |series= Passions|serieslink= Passions|credits= |network= NBC|station= |city= |airdate= 2005-09-06|began= |ended= |season= 7|number= |minutes= |transcript= September 6, 2005 episode|transcripturl=] — Alistair believes her to be the only "true Crane" of all of his descendants. For some twenty-five years, Alistair was consistently the only person upon whom Fancy could depend for love and support,cite episode |title= |episodelink= |url= |series= Passions|serieslink= Passions|credits= |network= NBC|station= |city= |airdate= 2005-09-07|began= |ended= |season= 7|number= |minutes= |transcript= September 7, 2005 episode|transcripturl=] and he, in many ways, was more of a father to her than Julian — when she was seven, it was Alistair, and not Julian and Ivy, whom she begged for the wild, untamed Arabian stallion she wanted so badly.cite episode |title= |episodelink= |url= |series= Passions|serieslink= Passions|credits= |network= NBC|station= |city= |airdate= 2005-10-19|began= |ended= |season= 7|number= 203|minutes= |transcript= October 19, 2005 episode|transcripturl=] Alistair was very protective of his firstborn granddaughter — not even Albert II, Prince of Monaco would have made a suitable husband for his little girlcite episode |title= |episodelink= |url= |series= Passions|serieslink= Passions|credits= |network= NBC|station= |city= |airdate= 2005-09-05|began= |ended= |season= 7|number= |minutes= |transcript= September 5, 2005 episode|transcripturl=] — and he shielded her from his malevolent, vindictive side, which the rest of their family knew to be his true nature. Fancy actually unwittingly brought Alistair's wrath down on others several times, including one time as a child when a boy at the playground hurt her feelings; Fancy later cried to her grandfather about the boy's taunts, and Alistair, in turn, saw that the boy's parents lost their jobs, forcing the couple to leave Harmony with their son.cite episode |title= |episodelink= |url= |series= Passions|serieslink= Passions|credits= |network= NBC|station= |city= |airdate= 2005-07-11|began= |ended= |season= 7|number= |minutes= |transcript= July 11, 2005 episode|transcripturl=]

Alistair's doting was never able to fully satiate Fancy's need to feel wanted and loved by her parents, however. When Fancy was about ten, Julian and Ivy forgot to send for their daughter at Christmastime, leaving her all alone at boarding school. Already secure in her status as a Crane, Fancy called a limo to take her to the mansion in Harmony, but was deeply crushed to find that her parents and siblings had left town for the holidays without her. Fancy's eventual savior was this time Ethan, who arrived with a large bag of presents for his younger sister;cite episode |title= |episodelink= |url= |series= Passions|serieslink= Passions|credits= |network= NBC|station= |city= |airdate= 2005-12-16|began= |ended= |season= 7|number= 244|minutes= |transcript= December 16, 2005 episode|transcripturl=] even as an adult, Fancy is close to her elder brother.

As a teenager, Fancy was wild and rebellious; her thirteenth birthday party was canceled five minutes before its designated start time after she and her sister stole the caterer's van and drove it halfway to neighboring Castleton.cite episode |title= |episodelink= |url= |series= Passions|serieslink= Passions|credits= |network= NBC|station= |city= |airdate= 2005-12-28|began= |ended= |season= 7|number= 252|minutes= |transcript= December 28, 2005 episode|transcripturl=] She was also pulled over by future police chief Sam Bennett at least once for driving over the speed limit and without a license after she took her parents' Ferrari for a joyride at age fourteen.cite episode |title= |episodelink= |url= |series= Passions|serieslink= Passions|credits= |network= NBC|station= |city= |airdate= 2005-06-24|began= |ended= |season= 7|number= |minutes= |transcript= June 24, 2005 episode|transcripturl=] The majority of Fancy's most serious infractions occurred while with Esme Vanderheusen, who became her best friend when they met in boarding school.

Both Fancy's childhood and teenage years were marked by a sometimes competitive relationship with her younger sister, Pretty. The girls' aunt Sheridan offers an anecdote in January 2007 in which she accuses Fancy of stealing Pretty's date one Labor Day by pretending to sprain her ankle on the family's yacht. According to her account, Fancy, not Pretty, ended up dating the country-club boy, then breaking up with him after a week once she was satisfied that she had beaten her sister; Fancy, however, vehemently denies that the situation had occurred as her aunt outlines. Sometime after this incident, Fancy and Pretty were involved in a physical altercation with one another — Pretty claims that Fancy was jealous of her relationship with a boy named Harrison, while Fancy maintains that Pretty had been choking her — in which Fancy poured cyanuric acid on the right side of her sister's face. Though Fancy claims that she acted in self-defense and was unaware of the bottle's contents, the chemicals nonetheless left the side of Pretty's face heavily scarred, and Pretty has never forgiven her sister, maintaining her belief that Fancy acted to prevent another man from ever preferring Pretty over herself.

Sometime before July 1999, Fancy departed Harmony for a prestigious school, either boarding or a university, and did not return until June 2005. Fancy did eventually make it to college, but, according to Ivy, she has yet to complete her degree. It was originally said in 2005 that Fancy later made her way to Italy with her sister sometime in 2004 or 2005 — the two parting ways after Pretty fell in love with an Italian nobleman — though the revelation of Fancy and Pretty's feud in 2007 seems to have created a retcon.

Beginnings in Las Vegas and progression in Harmony, 2005

Fancy is first introduced in May 2005 as a character à la Paris Hilton — a spoiled, selfish "princess" who, in furtherance of this comparison, owns a small dogThe name of Fancy's dog varied throughout Fancy's first months on "Passions" — transcripts have referred to her as "Preston" ( [ June 9, 2005] ), "Pristine" ( [ August 19, 2005] ), and "Prestine" ( [ August 23] and [ August 24, 2005] ).] and has supposedly dated two of Hilton's ex-boyfriends. She is partying in Las Vegas with her friend, Veronica, when she sets her sights on Noah Bennett, who is making his living by gambling and operating under the alias of Ned.

After breaking up with Luis, Fancy goes to the wharf to clear her head; there, she comes across her ex-boyfriend, Noah Bennett. Due to Tabitha's spell, the two wind up kissing. Later, on Thanksgiving, another of Tabitha's spells transports Fancy to the Lenox living room and causes her to make out with Noah; Noah's girlfriend, Paloma, catches them, but Noah's sister Kay zaps Fancy away and makes all three forget what has happened. Tabitha is persistent, however, and, while Kay is out, she uses her powers to transport Fancy to Noah's bedroom and cause the two to have sex; when Paloma and Sheridan walk in on them, the two have no idea how they'd wound up together, or why they are in bed together. Paloma is furious and devastated and breaks up with Noah, while Sheridan gloats to her niece, calling her a slut and accusing her of never truly loving Luis.

When Fancy learns that Luis is missing, she becomes panicked and realizes that she still loves Luis, despite his infidelity with her aunt. Fancy and Sheridan team up to find Luis, but instead discover him beneath the Crane mansion in an embrace with Pretty. Fancy is furious, especially since she'd seen feed of them on her PDA having sex. Luis tries to explain that Alistair would only let them free if he impregnated Pretty, but Fancy refuses to hear his excuses. However, on Christmas Eve, in a last-ditch attempt to recover her daughter, Tabitha Lenox performs good magic on Luis and Fancy, on whom she previously cast spells to make them have sex with Sheridan and Noah, respectively, and causes Fancy to overcome her reservations about Luis and reunite with him.cite episode |title= |episodelink= |url= |series= Passions|serieslink= Passions|credits= |network= DirecTV|station= |city= |airdate= 2007-12-24|began= |ended= |season= 9|number= 57|minutes= |transcript= |transcripturl=] Though gloriously happy to be back with Luis, she becomes upset when she learns that Luis failed to inform her that his son, Marty, did not die in Rome, though she is thrilled that he is alive.

Fancy determines to keep Luis, however, and buys an extra ticket for Marty to the Boston Bruins game so that the boy can accompany them on a date. Marty instantly bonds with Fancy, and both Luis and Fancy are thrilled at how natural the three are together. However, Pretty, in her quest to win Luis for herself, decides to use Alistair's mind-control device to make Fancy act out. Under Pretty's control, Fancy lashes out at Luis and Sheridan in front of Marty, even taunting the child, telling him that Alistair is hiding under his bed, waiting to kidnap him again. After further episodes, Pretty tries to convince Luis that Fancy has reverted to her partying ways while Sheridan insists that Fancy has reunited with Noah, and Luis, though still deeply in love with Fancy, begins to doubt her love for him. Luis is still trying to sort through his feelings when he and Paloma come across Noah and Fancy, who have been trying to figure out what has been going on between them, on the wharf. At first convinced that Fancy is cheating on him, Luis quickly becomes concerned when Sheridan and Pretty's battle for control of the remote causes Fancy to run into walls, bark like a dog, and, eventually, collapse and stop breathing. Once Fancy regains consciousness, the four quickly realize that there is, indeed, something physically wrong with Fancy and fear a brain tumor. Still, Fancy's near-death experience draws her and Luis closer together than ever before, much to Sheridan and Pretty's chagrin. Pretty tries to use Luis and Fancy's closeness to convince Sheridan to team up with her, but Sheridan cannot abide by having such power over her niece and throws the remote control into the ocean; the water causes the device to short-circuit, and the chip dislodges itself from Fancy's nose. When Noah finds the device, he throws it, too, into the ocean, to Pretty's dismay.cite episode |title= |episodelink= |url= |series= Passions|serieslink= Passions|credits= |network= DirecTV|station= |city= |airdate= 2007-03-11|began= |ended= |season= 9|number= 91|minutes= |transcript= |transcripturl=]

After reuniting, Fancy begins thinking about having a baby with Luis. Though she is eager to become pregnant immediately, Luis is hesitant, preferring to fully recover from the past few months' drama before fathering a second child; Fancy understands but privately fears that Luis believes that her violent mood swings will return. When Pretty overhears Luis and Fancy's conversation, the younger Crane decides to fake a pregnancy to rip her sister's relationship apart. Fancy is devastated by the news, fearing that her relationship will be torn apart by Luis's families with her sister and aunt, but Luis vows that Fancy is the only one for him, proposing to her on April 30. Fancy and Luis eventually discover Pretty's treachery, and after Pretty tries to scar Fancy's face with acid, Sheridan reveals that Pretty's scar has been fake all along. Luis and Fancy quickly realize that the youngest Crane child is mentally unwell, and Pretty is sent to a mental institution. The couple are deeply upset by Pretty's plight, but are also happy to be free of her machinations, and begin planning for their imminent wedding. Fancy and Luis are married on July 23, and Fancy tells Luis that they are expecting a baby in the series finale on August 7.


When first introduced in May 2005, Fancy is characterized as a vain, spoiled, stubborn, self-centered party girl who, as an heiress to a multibillion-dollar empire, is accustomed to getting everything her way; her grandfather tells her that she was born to "enjoy [herself and] have fun".cite episode |title= |episodelink= |url= |series= Passions|serieslink= Passions|credits= |network= NBC|station= |city= |airdate= 2005-07-15|began= |ended= |season= 7|number= |minutes= |transcript= July 14, 2005 episode|transcripturl=] Overall, Fancy lacks seriousness, wearing frivolous, impractical, attention-grabbing (though not overly revealing) clothing and displaying a fun-seeking attitude. Early on, Fancy is often compared to Alistair in that she will do anything to get what she wanted, though, when she hurts others, it is due to a self-centered inability to see the effects that her actions will have on others and not a malicious desire to cause others pain.

Fancy, despite having traveled around the world, is also extremely naïve; after pawning her watch for an undisclosed sum of money, she uses her profits to purchase lottery tickets, not realizing that her chances of winning are so slim. Fancy also has a deep fear of poverty, or, at least, what she considers to be poverty after having lived her entire life as one of the super-rich. Fancy's personality traits are not all negative, however; Fancy is also a bit of a free spirit and is fiercely protective of her loved ones — she is willing to give up Noah in order to protect him from Alistair.

Fancy's process of maturation essentially begins when she meets Noah, but she does not really become noticeably more mature and adult until 2006. In February that year, Fancy is involved in an accident in which she nearly loses her right eye. The trauma of that event, coupled with the crippling emotional pain she feels when she is led to believe that Noah, the first man with whom she has been in a serious, mature relationship, has cheated on her with his ex-girlfriend and was only with her because of her fame, forces the formerly self-centered heiress to do a great deal of growing up. A key event in Fancy's process of maturation, however, is when she discovers Alistair's true, villainous nature in Rome in July 2006. Up until that point, Alistair has played a huge role in Fancy's life as a sort of indulgent father figure who encourages her partying and shelters her from any real pain. When he sets lions after her and Luis, the façade of the man that she has known is destroyed, and she finally sees the evil person that the rest of Harmony's citizens have tried to show her. With her "father figure" dead, both physically and metaphorically, Fancy is left with no one to shield her from the real world and is forced to finally enter adulthood at either twenty-five or twenty-six years of age. Shortly thereafter, in August 2006, Fancy joins the Harmony Police Department primarily as a way to be close to her crush, Luis Lopez-Fitzgerald. The cadet training program is rigorous and physically taxing, however, and, despite the pain, Fancy discovers a new sense of self-worth; instead of living for and thinking of only herself, she is helping others, something that she finds deeply rewarding after years of being a celebutante.

Another key event occurs in December 2006, when Fancy disobeys Luis's orders and takes part in a sting operation and is brutally attacked and raped. The attack emotionally fractures Fancy, and, for two or three months, she is a shadow of herself, constantly self-conscious and afraid that her attacker will come back and rape her again, which he eventually does a month later. Both the rapes and Luis's subsequent arrest and near-execution for her attacks and the murder of two other people are highly traumatizing events for Fancy, and she loses some of the free-spiritedness that she once possessed as a result.

In current episodes, Fancy has largely shed her vanity and selfishness, though she is still extremely stubborn, and still possesses a bit of the free-spiritedness and love of fun that she did when she was younger; overall, though, Fancy is ashamed or embarrassed by her behavior in her youth. Fancy is deeply compassionate and loving, willing to do anything for her loved ones, and, when not being forced to act against her will, behaves somewhat maternally towards Luis's son, Marty. Though lacking the naïveté she possessed in 2005, Fancy is still very trusting and is eager to believe the best in the people she loves — she refuses to entertain the notion that Esme murdered Fox and quickly and ecstatically forgives Pretty when her sister claims that she wants to be close again; in the latter situation, her trusting nature allows Alistair and Pretty to drug Fancy and implant a mind-control device in her brain.

Mind-control device

When Alistair and/or Pretty activate the mind-control device, Fancy's true personality disappears and is replaced by an extremely out-of-character demeanor that matches no version of Fancy previously seen. At these times, Fancy is entirely at the will of her grandfather or sister and is forced to act as they want her to act; Alistair generally forces Fancy to become belligerent and abusive, whereas Pretty tends to force Fancy to act cruelly, obnoxiously, and somewhat promiscuously.

Cultural impact

In April 2006, NBC announced that it was launching a clothing line, [ Crane Couture] , in conjunction a storyline that featured Fancy as the head of the fashion department at Crane Industries." [ NBC Daytime Gets Ready for the Runway with the Launch of 'Passions' Inspired Clothing Line 'Crane Couture'] ", NBC Universal Media Village, published April 5, 2006. Retrieved March 13, 2008.] Crane Couture, a collaboration between Delivery Agent, Inc. and "Passions", debuted online on April 6, 2006, and was the first clothing line featured on a soap opera that was also available for sale to the public. The collection consisted of women's clothing, which NBC Daytime Vice President Annamarie Kostura said would "give "Passions" fans a taste of Fancy's life, while adding their own unique style to the look."

Crane Couture was featured prominently on "Passions"; characters often referenced the line, and Fancy wore several of the line's outfits on-air through July while notices on the bottom of the television screen alerted viewers to the Crane Couture website. The Crane Couture advertisements ended when Fancy began pursuing a career in law enforcement, however, and the collection's website is no longer updated.
