23 TV Characters Recast After The Actor Quit the Show
Vivian Banks (The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air)
For three seasons, the role of Aunt Vivian was gamely played by Janet Hubert. After three seasons, though, the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star decided she’d had enough of the show, and left.
Instead of writing in her absence, the show chose to cast Daphne Maxwell Reid on the show for the remainder of the series. Later on, Janet told TMZ that her costar Will Smith was an egomaniac. It seems like that hatred of Will may have led to her quitting the show. (Some say she got fired.) Even Will Smith, one of today’s most beloved movie stars, has managed to make a few people angry along the way.
