[Reddit] I work in TV but mostly comedy so I don’t have tons of experience with actors getting killed off.
But one example I saw was insane.
This actor HATED doing the show and wanted off- even though he was under contract.
It got so ugly that the creators decided to kill his character off, but the actor wouldn’t even come to work to shoot a death scene – so it happened mostly off screen.
In a later season the actor regretted leaving and came back “miraculously”.
It was bonkers but the showrunner was awesome and rolled with it.
