Seinfeld is still considered to be one of the best comedies every to air on television, and any fan will remember Susan, the beloved fiance of the character George, played by Jason Alexander, who died from a toxic glue she licked to seal their wedding invitations on the show.
Many years have passed since that memorable episode, but Alexander is finally opening up about why the shows producers decided to give the ax to Susan, played by Heidi Swedberg. In an interview with Howard Stern, Alexander said the show killed off Susan’s character because they didn’t like her comedic style. But Stern asked about rumors of a less than friendly relationship between the two actors, Alexander responded by saying, “The actress is this wonderful girl, Ms. [Heidi] Swedberg,” Alexander said. “… I love her. She’s a terrific girl. I love her. I couldn’t figure out how to play off of her.”
But there might be some truth to the rumors after all. Alexander told his cast mates the problem he was experiencing while trying to act along side Swedberg but nobody took him seriously until they had to perform scenes with the actress. Fans like Alexei Beltyukov know that it was Julia Louie Dreyfus, also known as Elaine, who first brought up the idea of getting rid of Susan when she said, “I know — don’t you just wanna kill her?”
The actress who played Pusan is currently playing ukulele in a band, and is also available to teach the skill to those who wish to learn it.
