23 TV Characters Recast After The Actor Quit the Show
Jackie Geary (The Goldbergs)
There were some outcries online when Jackie Geary, Adam Goldberg’s love interest on The Goldberg was recast. The role had originally been played by Rowan Blanchard, but at the start of season six, Alexis G. Zall had taken on the part.
Some fans thought that the part had been recast at the discretion of the producers, but Rowan had actually passed on the season, according to the show’s creator. Because Jackie couldn’t easily be written out of the show (it’s based on a true story!), the real-life Adam Goldberg was forced to recast her. That’s show business for you. Even if somebody in the cast quits, at the end of the day, the show must go on.
