Brittany Allen Not Set to Leave Just Yet

In an interesting turn of events, AMC has asked Brittany Allen (Marissa) to stay on for a little longer because they are having a hard time finding her replacement. So as of right now, there is no definitive final airdate for Brittany as Marissa. Finding a new Scott seemed easy, they just went to their arsenal of previous Scott's. So why not use that same tactic with Marissa? Yes, Brittany is the first Marissa, but she has a twin sister, a twin named Babe. How about tapping new mom Alexa Havins to come back to the show, this time as Marissa? I can see it! Can you?

Absoultely in favor of that "re-hire."

Definitely agree! Alexa Havins would be the perfect choice.

No no no! I want them to bring Babe back from the dead! Normally i'm not a fan of awakening the dead, but I'm dying to see Babe and Marissa in scenes regarding AJ. I would love love love to see them give Marissa full custody if AJ only for Babe to bust in and object at the very same moment! (I really want Alexa back ad Babe, but I'd settle for Amanda Baker!)

@Leah, that would be priceless! LOL

AMC has made so many mistakes, that they could redeem themselves A THOUSAND TIMES by hiring Alexa Havins. I doubt it will happen, but I wish I could at least read somewhere that they approached her.

Also, I don't like Allen's performances, but she is still a human being. How embarassing must it be to be fired and then asked to "stay longer" til they can find a replacement. I'd tell them exactly where to go.

David,

AMC seems to do that quite often. Remember how they treated Sabine when Rebecca decided she wanted "grace us" with her presence? I really liked Sabine's portrayal of Greenlee, much more than Rebecca (the "real" Greenlee.)

AMC NEEDS Alexa back, she brought so much life to the show! When she left, the recast 'Babe' was a complete let-down, and now the actress playing Marissa makes me want to put forks in my eyes.

Bring her back from the dead, bring her back as Marissa, SOMETHING, ANYTHING!!
