23 TV Characters Recast After The Actor Quit the Show
Mandy Milkovich (Shameless)
Shameless is not often a very subtle show, but it can have really interesting things to say about its characters. When the show first premiered, the character of Mindy, a sister to Ian Gallagher’s boyfriend, was played by Jane Levy.
Jane’s portrayal leaves quite an impression, but when the show returned for a second season, she had left to star on Suburgatory. As a result, Emma Greenwell stepped into the role and was eventually promoted to a series regular. This was Emma’s first ever acting work. It’s a pretty nice job to have right out of the gate, especially because someone else laid the foundation.
