Archie Panjabi Decided To Leave ‘The Good Wife’ After Kissing Gillian Anderson
Archie Panjabi decided to leave “The Good Wife” because of a pretty intense kiss.
The actor, who plays Kalinda in the acclaimed CBS drama, opened up to Radio Times about her decision to leave the show. Panjabi claims that while shooting a scene for another project — BBC/Netflix series “The Fall” — she realized her “Good Wife” character was creeping too much into her work.
[Spoiler Alert for “The Fall”] In the scene, co-star Gillian Anderson’s character catches Panjabi’s character off guard with a kiss.
“When I was kissing her, Allan Cubitt, the show’s creator and director, had to say, ‘Archie, can you hold back?’ because Gillian was supposed to take me by complete surprise,” Panjabi said. “I didn’t think that I was very forward in, but obviously after a while a character starts to affect you. I thought, ‘Okay, I think it’s time to go now.'”
Panjabi’s exit from “The Good Wife” was announced in October, along with the news that the star had inked a development deal with Twentieth Century Fox that included a plan for her to headline her own new drama pilot.
“Archie is an Emmy-award winning dramatic actress, and rightly so,” Twentieth Century Fox EVP of casting Sharon Klein said at the time. “Her work on ‘The Good Wife’ has been extraordinary, and the time has come for her to star in a project of her own. We couldn’t be happier that it will be with us.”
According to Deadline Archie has signed on for a new upcoming film.
Archie Panjabi has been cast in New Line’s action thriller San Andreas from director Brad Peyton. Dwayne Johnson stars as a rescue worker trying to save his ex-wife and daughter during the largest earthquake in California history. Panjabi will play Serena, a reporter doing an investigation on the disaster.
Archie is one of seven women who shared the kinds of gifts (and the outfits) that make their season bright—whether they’re giving or receiving.
Check out what Archie had to say. This is part of the December 2012 issue.
The Firecracker: Archie Panjabi, 40, Actress
Her Favorite Things: London native Panjabi, who plays the sultry Kalinda Sharma on CBS’s The Good Wife, can’t live without her Lhasa Apso, Benzi; macarons from French patisserie Ladurée; Le Métier de Beauté lip gloss; and Jo Malone candles. All things Parisian, in particular, have a special place in the Emmy-winning actress’s heart. “I just love the food, the culture, the dogs,” she says. “The women and how naturally sexy they are—and how they enjoy good food and do not put on weight.”
Why She Loves This Outfit: “This dress captures all the things I like: It’s very pretty, very festive, and very French.”
Her Merrymaking Style: Casual clothes for day (“I never get to wear jeans as Kalinda”), jewel-toned dresses for night. “I tend to do well in very structured dresses with fitted silhouettes.”
Her Gift List:
For the person who has everything: Unforgettable experiences, like the NYC interactive play Sleep No More
For the foodie: A selection of Indian spices, like star anise seed and black cardamom
Under $50: A charity donation
Dress, BCBG Max Azria, $448. Earrings, Janis by Janis Savitt. Shoes, Roger Vivier.
Archie has been nominated for her third consecutive Primetime Emmy Nomination! USA Today has Archie’s reaction.
Archie Panjabi from The Good Wife always appreciates her good fortune. “It’s the third time and I feel as excited, if not more. I don’t take it for granted. I never expect it. Hearing the news, it’s a big surprise to me. I’m so grateful,” she says.
She’s calling from the set of the drama. “I’m half-naked as we speak. I’m at a fitting. It’s one of my busiest days on the show far. I just shot one scene and I’ll go shoot some more,” she says.
So, who parties harder, her or fellow nominee Julianna Margulies? “I think it would be the whole cast and crew. We’ve known each other for four years. We would keep a bar open 24 hours,” she says. — Freydkin
Tonight is the 43rd Annual NAACP Image Awards and Archie is nominated for her role on The Good Wife in the category of Supporting Actress in a Drama Series… Well, Archie took home the prize and gave a beautiful heartfelt speech!
I’m sure you’ve noticed that Archie Panjabi Central has been having some problems as of late. Apologies for that. Our host was experiencing server issues and that’s why the site was down for a day. The gallery is still down but I’m working to fix that. I haven’t been able add caps of this week’s or last week’s episode but those will be up as soon as the gallery resumes running. Once that happens I will also be able to add some wonderful images of Archie back from June of 2007 at the New York Moves Magazine Party for A Mighty Heart. Those have kindly been sent to me by Matt who has become invaluable.
Last week Archie attended the 2011 Metropolitan Opera Season Opening Night of “Anna Bolena”. She looked absolutely stunning in her strapless black dress. I added the images to the gallery a few days ago please excuse the tardiness of this news post. Some of the images are high quality but sadly some are watermarked. I have also added 39 new images of Archie at the Emmy awards to the gallery – most of which are high quality. For those of you who wanted to get a look at Archie’s shoes that night this is your chance. Shortly before the Emmys Archie sat down with Young Hollywood. The entertaining video is embedded below.
As you have probably heard by now, Archie lost out to Margo Martindale of FX’s “Justified” at the Emmy Awards this Sunday. She did, however, look absolutely stunning in a gorgeous green gown and was visibly thrilled for Julianna Margulies who won the award for best actress in a drama series. First images have been added to the gallery but I will be adding more later. Don’t forget to catch the season premiere of The Good Wife in its new Sunday night time slot and keep your eyes peeled for Archie’s CBS Watch Magazine cover.
First off I want to apologize for the recent lack of updates around here. Life is keeping me rather busy at the moment but I will try my best to keep the site up to date. First promotional images for the third season of The Good Wife have been released, those will be added to the gallery later. CBS went through the trouble of putting together a twenty minute look back/preview special entitled A New Beginning which aired on the network last night. Screencaps of that will also be added. And now, thanks to Jason for giving me a heads up on the following story.
Pratham USA announced that Emmy-award winning actress Archie Panjabi will serve as an Ambassador to the organization, offering her voice and celebrity to its cause of educating India’s underprivileged children. It will be at Pratham Gala in New York that Archie will make her first formal appearance as Pratham Ambassador. The event will be at the Pierre Hotel on 5 October 2011.
Archie will host this year’s event that typically will raise upwards of $1.5 million and attracts a sold out crowd of prominent philanthropists and business people from the Tri-State area.
Pratham, which means “first” in Sanskrit, was founded in the slums of Mumbai in 1994 with UNICEF support. Today, Pratham’s direct urban programs, including pre-schools, community libraries and remedial learning programs reach hundreds of thousands of children every year. [MORE]
