jenna i never cared for until pp took over and i didnt like the kristen role until mc took it over and ted as gary was great.my fav digger was the last one too.i liked when cliff told him im going to get it all from the ewings and digger told him i only wanted what was mine.
Aha the old recasts - good point July baby as they did recast a lot of people and bar miss Ellie they all worked well
Am trying to think if anyone else was recast
I didn't care for the actress who played Kristen before Mary Crosby. MC was so kick butt as Kristen, after her nobody could compare.
I agree and it's such a shame her character was killed off

In hind-sight... I wonder if the writers ever wished they didn't kill Kristin off?
She could have easily been resuscitated after that swimming pool episode.
Of course... the writers went with crazy gun-tooting sister-inlaw #2 with Rebecca Wentworth... so they probably never batted an eyelash.
Shame isn't it as she was a very good character

Even though she is one of the lost famous people in the shows history
she shot JR!
on another note I did once read that writers wished they had not killed off April Stevens Ewing!
