One would think that most actors/actresses would be dead set against having their characters killed off a hit show, but that isn’t always the case. Sometimes they grow out of a character or want to move on to other projects, so they ask producers to get rid of their character. Here are 7 TV actors/actresses who did the unthinkable – they asked to be killed off a show:
7. Connie Britton – Nashville
It was Connie Britton who decided that she wanted to leave the hit show Nashville and have her character, Rayna James, be killed off. “It was something that had been percolating over time, and there were lots of different reasons behind it. But my priority was really making sure that the timing was right. My priority has always been Nashville. So when the show was moved to CMT and we got these great new showrunners – Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick – I was [confident] the show would be in a good place,” she told TV Line.
