      Leven Rambin says Goodbye
      Posted on March 9th, 2009 by hadley


      Dearest SCC viewers/fans/haters, it’s yours truly, Leven Rambin. Just wanted to stop by the blog to thank all of you for your support of me and Riley (even you naysayers!). You all inspired me more than you know so thank you for yours efforts. I had such an amazing time shooting (no pun intended) the fight scene with Jesse. Even though I could simply crush Stephanie with a single swipe of my husky hand, we managed to carry on a sufficiently entertaining duel. And I’m really dead for all you doubters.

      I have never felt such a passion and commitment to my craft as I did during that scene. I am so grateful to the writers for having me go down in such a fantastic blaze of glory. I discovered strengths and weaknesses about myself during my time here that I will carry with me for the rest of my life personally, and professionally. Everyone in the cast is so talented and creative, it was a blessing to be in this environment as a young actress. I watched this past Friday’s episode with tears in my eyes as I realized how fortunate I was to have this opportunity. I will keep this episode on my Tivo until it absolutely breaks down, and even then I will salvage its parts!!

      Peace out, y’all. Maybe we’ll see each other again soon (and hopefully I will be hounded by another sexy fembot). And just maybe you won’t all despise my presence or think I’m a whale (it’s all about the Bikram Yoga…).

      All my love!
      Leven Rambin
