Lucy Danziger Boardwalk Empire
February 8, 2012 by staff
Lucy Danziger Boardwalk Empire, In strange turn of events, Boardwalk Empire will be missing one of its main characters, Lucy Danziger, for Season 3 and she didn’t even die! This marks the fourth character that won’t be in the hit series’ third season and the only one of the four who is still alive.
They still have the option to kill her off screen, but that’s a cheap way out. Besides, they may decide to bring her back somewhere down the line. As for right now, fans of the character will miss her very much, and anybody out there who didn’t like her can jump for joy, I guess.
TVLine first reported the dropping of Paz de la Huerta, the actress playing Lucy, from Boardwalk. It seems her contract option for a third season was not picked up. HBO has failed to clarify why she wasn’t asked to come back. For those not in the know, Lucy was the rather deranged mistress of Nucky’s (Steve Buscemi) during the first season and moved on to become pregnant with Val Adlen’s (Michael Shannon) child in the second. The writers must have felt her storyline had reached the end of its rope to so abruptly decide to not bring her back.
Four is an impressive amount of cast members to get rid of for a TV series. I’m of the belief that you shouldn’t let characters stick around for too long in a series, unless they are the main character. Losing characters will ultimately be good for Boardwalk as it will allow the writers to bring in brand new characters to replace them.
