ABC’s ‘Revenge’ season 3 spoilers: Ashely Madekwe confirms departure, speaks out

AshleyAs we reported earlier this week, the metaphorical bell has tolled for more than just Declan Porter moving into “Revenge” season 3. The news has also been now confirmed that Ashley Madekwe is also saying goodbye in what is a creative decision by the show’s producers in order to freshen up the cast and reduce the part of a character who was not receiving a bevy of screen time anymore.

So what does the actress now have to say about seeing her character leave the show? While we don’t exactly know how Ashley Davenport will be written out of the show just yet, but Madekwe herself said in a post on Twitter that if she is to go, she would like for it to happen in as dramatic of a manner as humanly possible:

“My preference is that Ashley Davenport dies in a blaze of glory. Preferable whilst wearing Valentino couture….Or Chanel. I’m not fussy.”

This could be the actress showing her cards about what is happening to her character, but probably not. Instead, she is really just likely commenting on the fact that she would rather see something dramatic occur than something completely boring and mundane, even if death makes it next to impossible that she could ever return to “Revenge” at any point in the future.

Are you sad about Ashley’s departure? Do you think that it is possible that this could end up being something that benefits the show as a whole to change things up? If you want to read even more news on the subject, all you have to do is click here.

For those looking for more details on “Revenge” season 3, the new season likely will premiere on ABC in late September / early October. We’ll have more  on the series throughout the months ahead.
