[Blind Gossip] This actress has been on a successful cable TV show for several seasons. She has appeared in every episode of the series since it began.
The story lines for the new season have already been laid out. Many of the episodes for the season are already written. They’ve already started filming.
There’s a problem. She wants off the show. Now.
Will they let her go? Well, it’s a messy situation.
They want her on the show. It would be a royal pain to write her out. It could also hurt the show’s ratings to have her leave. Not only that,
[She] is under contract. They’ve already been trying to accommodate her. If she no-shows, they have cause to fire her. That would likely mean the end of her acting career.
Then again, maybe she doesn’t care if her acting career ends? Seems like she is getting very close to a much bigger role than that of an actress in a cable TV series.

[Optional] Should producers allow her to break her contract and gracefully let her leave the show?
