Dreaming of a Melanie-free Days
Yeah, I agree. I don't think it matters why she left--as far as I'm concerned, leaving because she didn't like the way her character was being written would be a perfectly valid reason (if that were the case) and it wouldn't make her look bad to me. Whether she left because she wanted to try something new, wasn't being creatively fulfilled, didn't care for the writing, didn't care for her coworkers, whatever--if she wanted to try something else I say more power to her. She's talented and I won't be surprised at all to see her get another acting job.
I did think this was an interesting quote:
On the one hand, it's kind of typical of young actors, it seems to me, to think that kind of stuff--drug/alcohol experimentation/addiction storylines--are inherently interesting (I find them boring, but then, I'm not an actor). But what interests me about that is that she doesn't seem to have wanted another pairing, at least for a while. I wonder why that is, if there's more to it than her desire to try something a little different (and on DOOL, not being part of a couple is definitely out of the ordinary, if you're under 50).
