Sarah Wayne Callies: FOX Made Me Quit

Sarah Wayne Callies: FOX Made Me Quit

According to an interview in French magazine Tele Star, former Prison Break star Sarah Wayne Callies, aka Dr. Sara Tancredi, was forced to quit the show. Here is a rough translation of the interview (if the magazine is credible):

Big surprise on Prison Break. We hear that you’re leaving the show in the third season. Yes, but I didn’t have the choice. I’m sad, but it’s just show business.

You weren’t expecting this? No, at the end of season 2 last year. I was sure I’d continue. It’s such a great adventure we achieved.

How did you know you were fired? I don’t want to speculate too much about this. I was shocked.

Your leaving the show was a big deal. You have to tell us more! I’ll just say this. I am sorry to let down the viewers. I have loved the support Sara Tancredi got from them. and though she was a victim of her own destiny, I liked how she made decisions by herself. But the way things ended up couldn’t have been foreseen. Again, I was deceived by the decision.

How did your fellow actors react? They told me ‘It’s too bad. I loved working with you and good luck, we hope we can work together again.’

And Wentworth [Miller]? We were so sad that we wouldn’t work together anymore. Wentworth is a gentleman. He’s gracious and full of class. And i learned a lot from him. But in a series like “Prison Break,” apart from Wentworth, anyone can go. When I took the role of Sara, I thought it’d be for only a year. Afterwards, I was so happy to get a second year.

If they call you back, will you accept? Of course! I don’t have another role right now. Right now, I need to find work.

How will Sara make her exit from the series? I don’t know. I’m not part of the team anymore and don’t have any influence on the storyline.

How is being a mom to baby Keala? It’s a rich experience and unpredictable. You can’t plan anything. (Keala was born in July 2007.)

What projects do you currently have today? I’ll rest another month in Vancouver (Canada). Afterwards, I’ll go to California for a little bit. After that, I’d like to do theater in New York. I honed my skills on the stage and I miss it.


TELLING INTERVIEW! Anyway, how was yesterday’s Prison Break episode “Call Waiting”? How LAME was Tancredi’s body double? And the lame voiceover voice? And what do you think is in the box that Lincoln opened up at the very end of the episode? Somebody’s finger of decapitated head, perhaps?

Hm, is this mag credible? I mean, it just seems weird that she’d do interviews with a European mag rather than, say–tv guide?

# 2

ohh this is sad..i loved her as dr. tancredi

# 3

this is sad. prison break is my favorite show. in all 3 seasons i havent missed a episode. i will miss sara. when is sara’s last appearence on the show because she was on it this week. i wish Sarah all the best.

# 4

She’s in Vancouver?!?!? NO WAY!!!!!
I think it’s awful how they kicked her off the show!!! =( We’ve already seen too many people leave but she was one of the main people!!! Didn’t think it would happen! =(

if true that sucks, although they did cause her character to them wasn’t THAT important, basically she was disposable. I think.

# 6

i thought tonight while i was watching the show that it didnt sound like sara. i bet it’s sara’s head in the box. i beat they play it out and she gets killed. we will have to wait and see. i cant wait

I love Went, but, jared why is there a picture of went instead of sarah? lol.

# 8

ugh. if that’s mag is credible, fox sucks! grrr. i want SWC back on the show. i miss her too much. tonight’s episode was really good. pretty sure it’sa body part of lj’s or sarah’s.

# 9

I can’t believe she was fired because she was pregnant.

Nika, there’s a picture of Sarah! Went is holding a pic of Sarah up! It’s a Polaroid pic! Haha.

This is a high action show, I can understand that they can’t use her if she’s pregnant. Maybe it was in her contract.

Thats a shame. I love PrisonBreak and part of the reason is because I love Sara and Michael. Its just not going to be the same anymore.

the_original_nika @ 10/02/2007 at 12:54 am

LOL JJ, ok.

NO more MISA LOVE! damn!

angelina_mmm @ 10/02/2007 at 12:57 am

I don’t like how they cutt her off.

I think what’s in the box is sara’s head. LJ is not gonna be killed off

omg, if thats true then that is so sad for her AND US!! That cant be true tho?? But a magazine wouldnt make up a whole interview would they? but if they knew they were getting rid of the character, surely they’d want to use SWC instead of a stupid body double? I really don’t understand.
**** that better not be her head in the box..STUPID FOX! (if this is true)

I was wondering what was going on with Sara!!
If this is true, I’ll be one of the many disappointed fans out there!!

eh, they just lost another viewer..

Just me... @ 10/02/2007 at 1:13 am

I do not know what to say….I am shocked!!! :(
I am sad that this adventure stopped for Sarah (no more history of love between her and Michael)!!!
They have to remove the only woman whom I appreciated in the series to add others of them that I do not appreciate!!!
It’s too bad :(

The show is now bad enough and they just made it worse by kicking her out.

I stopped watching the show after the lacklustre pilot–this after being a hardcore fan for 2 seasons. The show could use someone like Sarah–not that I’ll be watching anymore.

I really like this Guy Miller in Prison Break.

i thought she wanted to spend more time with her family.

Wow. Why would they fire her? They’re so going to lose viewers, there are many people who tune in because of Michael/Sara. This sucks!
