“It is with deep regret to inform everyone that due to my injuries, I am unable to return to The Good Wife,” the actress said in a statement.
Chenoweth was set to play a clever, inquisitive political reporter in multiple episodes of the drama series starring Julianna Margulies, but was unexpectedly struck in the head by a loose piece of lighting equipment. She will still appear in The Good Wife’s season four premiere.
CBS Television Studios confirmed the star’s exit but also stated they are open to the possibility of Chenoweth’s return when she is well again. So do not despair, loyal Chenowethians; the actress may still reappear on the show!
With Kristin’s petite frame, we’re surprised she’s not under constant protection of some kind of force field or at least a helmet… We imagine a strong wind could actually whisk her away into the horizon, not just drop heavy equipment on her head.
That woman has the voice of a fairy tale mermaid; she must be protected! We wish Chenoweth a speedy recovery. Opinions?
