As speculation and rumors continue regarding the final Alicia-Kalinda scene on “The Good Wife,” it appears Archie Panjabi was only participant in a decision of others.
During a recent interview with E! Online , Archie Panjabi gave her first comment on the fated scene, which has been confirmed to be shot separately using body doubles and CGI work.
“All I can say is this: the decision making process is not something I’m privy to,” said Panjabi.
“It was hard to say goodbye.” Panjabi also firmly denied the possibility of Kalinda returning to “The Good Wife” before the series ends.
“I don’t think so,” she said.
“She came in as a mystery and left as a mystery.” Archie Panjabi is an Emmy award-winning actress, and that is apparently something that could’ve ignited the feud between her and Julianna Margulies.
“There had been tension between them ever since Archie won an Emmy before Julianna did,” said a source to Celeb Dirty Laundry .
“Alicia may miss Kalinda, but Julianna sure wasn’t sad to see her go.” According to TV Guide , actress Cush Jumbo has been confirmed for a recurring role on “The Good Wife” season 7.
And while Robert and Michelle King are remaining tight-lipped about spoilers, the character could become a new investigator for Alicia’s firm.
“I wouldn’t say she’s replacing Archie because she’s irreplaceable, but we wanted someone who could fill that same interesting dynamic on the show without doing the same thing,” said Robert.
“We’re still figure out exactly [her role], but we’re not suggesting that Cush will be an investigator or take on that role,” added Michelle.
