TV Line has confirmed that Juliet Rylance, the actress who has been tapped to play Kalinda’s season 5 love interest, will not appear on the legal drama after all.
According to an insider from the series, Rylance did shoot several scenes for the Sept. 29 opener, but they were cut for a time. Since the role may evolve into a recurring gig, the English actress’ season 5 arc has been cut out because she was technically only committed to doing a single episode.
Rylance character, Holly, was formerly described as a whip-smart Assistant State’s Attorney who shares a past with Kalinda.
‘The Good Wife’ airs every Sunday on CBS.
