The ''Seinfeld'' creators killed ''George's'' fiancee because the leading role actors didn't like the actor who played her.
The fiancee of George in "Seinfeld" met a tragic fate - when she died after licking the toxic adhesive on the envelopes of the wedding invitations. The episode is rated as one of the most unexpected and memorable in television history.
19 years after, "George" actor Jason Alexander reveals the reason why fiancee Susan, played by Heidi Swedberg, was abruptly written out of "Seinfeld."
- She's a brilliant girl, but I could not figure out how to play against her. Her instincts to do a comedy scene with me always went wrong, said Alexander when he visited the Howard Stern Show this week. Therefore he disliked strongly that screenwriter Larry David let the unlikely couple get engaged early in the seventh season.
Only when both Jerry Seinfeld and Julia Louis-Dreyfus in the role of Elaine had played against her many times, they understood why Jason Alexander complained.
- They said 'you know, it's completely impossible," Alexander recalled in the radio program and revealed that the Susan-character's demise was Louis-Dreyfus' idea.
- Julia actually said "Don't you just simply want to kill her?". Then Larry said "ka-bang!" and the character's fate was sealed!
