|I always liked Vivian 1 more. She was Sassy and Funnier than Vivian 2|
|Which Vivian Actress did you prefer?|
I like the first Vivian because she more into the show and had a bigger personality. While the second Vivian was more quiet due to her tone being down and wasn't involved as much. But I also have a question about the change.
Who's fault was it for the personality change of the character? I mean I read somewhere that the writers changed the character by toning the personality and making the second Vivian less fiery and involved ; a result, the actress was just following the script and the writing was not as good as before
Or is it the actress who played the second Vivian for not playing as well as the first Vivian actress and being a miscast for the role.
Who is to blame for the failure of the second Vivian, the writers or the actress?
All the help would be appreciated.
Vivian 1 became difficult on the set when she was pregnant - she said herself that she was a raving B**** b/c of the hormones and discomfort. the executives then announced that they were going to cut the number of episodes she was going to be in, and thus her money, for the next season after she had the baby. she argued and negotiated with them but was never happy with their offers, then she changed her mind and decided to take the last one but they said it was too late, they were done with her.
i don't know if the execs deliberately had Vivian 2 be a milder, less involved character.
