Rumors had been swirling over the years about the feud after the Emmy-winning actresses didn’t share a scene for several seasons. The final scene between the co-stars added fuel to the fire after it was revealed they didn’t film it together.
“Right, I’ve heard about [the feud]. Who says that? It’s totally gossip,” Julianna said (via Vulture). “I heard that question had been asked to Robert King. There’s no story there, sorry … I actually had heard [that rumor] and I feel that it has been talked about and answered. I feel people just like to have gossip or make something into something that isn’t there. There’s no animosity on my part. It’s a shame, because I wonder if it was two men, when one finds out that he f–ked his best friend’s wife, if it would get that same attention, you know what I mean?”
Julianna also opened up about why she didn’t film the final scene alongside Archie.
“It was shot the way Robert [King] wanted to shoot it, and the story line, too,” she said. “You also have to remember, there’s difficulty … [Panjabi] was also doing another show, called The Fall. I went along with whatever Robert asked me to do and I did it happily.”
