Revenge will be down another schemer come Season 3.
Ashley Madekwe, who plays social-climbing Hamptonite Ashley Davenport, is exiting the ABC drama.
As first reported by our sister site Deadline, the actress’ option was not picked up due to “storyline reasons.”
Madekwe’s ouster is the latest in a string of Revenge shakeups, including the death of Connor Paolo’s polarizing Declan in the Season 2 finale and the shocking departure of creator Mike Kelley. As previously reported, executive producer Sunil Nayar will take over as showrunner next season.
As for how Ashley’s character will be written out, Madekwe has some thoughts:
My preference is that Ashley Davenport dies in a blaze of glory. Preferable whilst wearing Valentino couture….Or Chanel. I'm not fussy.—
