As reported here, Academy Award winning actress Octavia Spencer is set to lead the NBC reboot of famed 1980s television series ‘Murder, She Wrote’.
While the news was greeted with mixed reviews, one particular naysayer recently made headlines for her disapproval – Angela Lansbury, the show’s original star. Recently speaking to Associated Press, Lansbury revealed:
“I think it’s a mistake to call it Murder, She Wrote,” she’s quoted saying. “I’m sorry that they have to use the title Murder, She Wrote, even though they have access to it and it’s their right,” she added. “I saw [Octavia Spencer] in The Help and thought she was absolutely wonderful, a lovely actress,” Lansbury said. “So I wish her well, but I wish it wasn’t in Murder, She Wrote.”
