Linda Gray: 'I Want To Be In Every Episode'
Dallas star Linda Gray is urging fans to contact the show's producers and demand she is given scenes in every episode of the re-launched TV hit.
Gray and her fellow stars on the renowned program were brought back to small screens in the last month when the sex-and-scandal show re-launched on the TNT network after 21 years off air.
With a new generation of the famous Ewing family to consider, the writers have given Gray's character, Sue Ellen Ewing, a reduced amount of screen time - and she is asking her fans to help her win a bigger part.
In an interview with fan website UltimateDallas.com, Gray says, "I think those people (who want to see more of me) should go and tell the writers or TNT or somebody, that they are not happy because I don't like not being there, I want to be in every episode.
"They had other plots they thought were more important. I don't know, I'm not in charge of that... I like the way that people notice Sue Ellen wasn't in there, that was cool and I want them to go and rattle cages. I'm not happy not to be in an episode. I'm not a happy camper."
Asked how she would like to see her character develop, she replies, "First of all I don't want her cut out anymore. I want her in every episode, and then I can do something."
"They don't seem to be writing for Sue Ellen, I'm like 'Ok, come on guys, you are writing for the guys a lot, you are writing for everybody else but you're not writing for Sue Ellen', so I want them to get off the dime and write for her. You can't do anything if there is no dialogue, what can you do?"
