Everyone is wondering why Tina Huang was killed off Rizzoli and Isles, and after a lot of searching, I have finally discovered the answer!
Tina told Talk Nerdy With Us exclusively:
“I knew pretty early on, but of course, I didn’t want to spoil it for the fans, and that was a really difficult secret to keep under wraps. The Susie character is such a fun, lovable character that Jan Nash (the showrunner) is very, very sensitive about. She called me, and we were all really upset to see this character go. At the same time, I think the story opens the world up to interesting storylines for the other characters to go through that grieving process.”
Tina knew Susie’s death was coming in season six. It’s sad that Susie will no longer be making us laugh each week, but I understand the story has to push forward somehow. It’s horrible when our favorite characters are killed off, but there is a purpose to it, even if it upsets the fans like this death has done.
Tina isn’t out of work, though. According to The Huffington Post, she’s going to be performing in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland.
She told HuffPost that she’s been performing in Fairy Tale Theater: 18 & Over for a few years.
“It’s hilarious and has some raunchy fairy tales with lessons for adults like the Tale of the Bi-Polar Bear and the Co-Dependent Eskimo. I play multiple characters using costumes and puppets… PUPPETS!” Tina said.
Maura is very sad to see her friend and colleague pass away, and I’m sure that will affect her moving forward. Frost’s death has been touched on and used in the storyline several times. Of course, that could be remembering the actor as well as the character.
Are you upset that the writers chose to write Susie off the show?
