Since Dallas returned to our screens on TNT there has been mass speculation that Victoria Principal would return to reprise her role of Pamela Ewing. But now that speculation is over via a statement from Victoria to Deadline.com
Victoria- “Since the inception of ‘Dallas’, the creators and fans around the world have referred to Bobby and Pam, as the Romeo & Juliet of ‘Dallas’. I could not agree more. And since the original author of this scenario, William Shakespeare, felt compelled to make theirs a tragic love story, of epic and unforgettable deathly loss, I think I shall respect that very successful example, and leave the legacy of Bobby & Pam’s tragic love story, undisturbed and intact.
When I filmed Pam’s fatal car accident, for me that was the punctuation mark on my role as Pam. I cannot be held responsible for any choices made by producers, once I left ‘Dallas’, but I do take responsibility for my decision, not to risk tarnishing Bobby & Pam’s love story, with a desperate reappearance. I made this decision a long time ago with a loving and respectful heart for ‘Dallas’, Bobby & Pam and all faithful fans.”
Fans of the original series will remember that Pam was last seen discussing with her doctor that she only had a few months to live but her ending was left ambiguous. It is rumored that fans will finally discover the fate of Pamela Ewing in an upcoming episode.
In light of Victoria’s statement is it finally time to officially kill off the character of Pam?
