Actress in no mood to ‘remember’ commitment
Pressed for time and running behind schedule, the production staff of a television series asked two of its cast members, Bubbly Gabbler (BG) and Dazed Actress (DA), if they could block off one of their Sundays for taping.
DA agreed. BG, on the other hand, initially declined because of an important family event that had already been set months prior. But after much convincing from the desperate production assistant, BG eventually relented—provided that the taping takes place in the morning, and that they work as quickly as possible.
BG arrived on the set. DA, however, was nowhere to be found. They waited and waited. The assistant kept on calling and texting DA, telling her that they would have someone fetch her if transportation was an issue. Turned out, DA was at a posh hotel and having herself pampered, blissfully unaware of the taping day they knew she had committed to.
BG was livid. And because she was already running late for her next event, BG couldn’t be bothered to wait much longer.
In the end, the production staff ended up resorting to last-minute script changes and good ol’ television trickery to shoot BG’s scenes without DA.
