8 Television Shows That Killed Off Characters Due to Insane Feuds
Usually when stars get into a celebrity feud, their greatest consequence is that they’ll end up in one of Taylor Swift‘s new songs. But, for other stars, celebrity feuds could not only affect their lives and friends — but affect their careers as well! Or, at least that’s what happens if the feud you just so happen to get in involves studio heads or co-stars you don’t like.
So, how exactly can off-screen, on-set feuds affect an actor’s career? Well, there’s two different ways that a hit television show can get rid of a beloved character: re-cast their role to another actor or kill them off completely! Um…Way harsh! And, unfortunately, the actor usually doesn’t get to choose.
Here are the characters that were re-cast and killed off as a result of some insane cast and crew feuds:
Two and a Half Men
Who could forget when Charlie Sheen was totally #winning? After being hopped up on alcohol and drugs, trashing a Plaza hotel room, going on bizarre public rants, and slamming his co-workers on the show — including the show's creator Chuck Lorre — he was officially fired from CBS' hit show. Even though he was the show's star! However, instead of just replacing his character, they decided to kill off his character and add-in a similar, but not the same, character played by actor Ashton Kutcher. Ouch!
