Sleepy Hollow fans about the death of one of the main characters on the series at the end of season three on FOX. The series is returning for a fourth season to the network, but it will be without Nicole Beharie.
Tom Mison spoke about the death of her character and the fan uproar over the departure at MCM London Comic Con over the weekend. TV Line shared his comments. He said the following about the death of Abbie:
“Abbie Mills represented more than just another character in the show. It wasn’t an easy decision for them to make. I know that. The writers, they like writing Abbie Mills. And I like acting with Nicole.”
As for the fan reaction to the death, he also touched on that. He said the following:
“When you have a woman of color in the lead role, it’s not just a woman of color in the lead role. It immediately means so much more than that, across the whole of America. There’s a woman of color in a position that not very long ago she wouldn’t have been. It comes to symbolize so much more. So when something like this happens, when they kill off said character, of course it’s going to mean an awful lot more, consequently.”
Sleepy Hollow will return to FOX this fall. Were you upset about the death of Abbie Mills on the series? Tell us what you think.
