[Blind Gossip] We were surprised to learn that the second season of the HBO hit series Big Little Lies was supposed to end with one of the characters meeting their demise!
On this week’s Little Gold Men podcast for Vanity Fair, actress Zoe Kravitz did a wide-ranging interview.
She included the shocking revelation that the second season of Big Little Lies was actually scripted to end with the passing of a key character.
Q: I wanted to ask you also briefly about Big Little Lies. It’s my understanding that the ending of season two was changed to sort of leave the door open for a season three. What are your thoughts on, on those changes and the idea of continuing Bonnie’s story?
A: There’s a big thing that got changed. There was someone that was supposed to die, but it wasn’t me, but I don’t know what I’m allowed to say, so I don’t know. But someone did die.
Was it at their own hand?
Or did one of the other characters take them out?
She won’t say.
But I think the way we ended the season was obviously really intriguing, but also everyone got to come together and I think that felt important to everybody because I think that was one of the most powerful things about the end of season one, is these women and our stories are all quite separate, but kind of finally coming together at the end.
So I think that was the reason we went in the direction we did. But I would love to do another season.
I love that show. I love those people. And I love the response. I love how passionate people are about that show.
It makes going to work so much better when you know that people are rooting for you and excited for the thing that you’re working on.
We’d be excited to know who was supposed to get knocked off… and how!
Was Nicole Kidman’s character supposed to fall down the stairs?
Was Meryl Streep’s character supposed to choke on her awful fake teeth?
Did Amabella finally have psychotic break over her weird name?
