Allison Argent’s death in Teen Wolf shocked fans on Monday, spurring the hashtag #RIPAllison to trend across the United States.
An encounter with an Orni left her with a fatal sword wound. She bled out while being held by Scott; she called him while during, “my first love.”
Crystal Reed, who plays Argent, told Entertainment Weekly that she was in mourning over leaving the show. However, she’s actually the one who wanted it to happen.
“I love the art. And I felt like, creatively, there were things I wanted to do differently, and I wanted to explore other avenues of film and TV,” she said. “I wanted to jump into different characters. You know, I’m 29. So I think the age difference was something I wanted to change as well because she’s 17. I love the show so much. So I went to Jeff and talked about it and he said, ‘We’ll write you a great ending.'”
Asked to address upset fans, Reed said: “I just have to say that Allison– it’s so hard for me to let go of her. And I went into, like, a week of mourning because a part of me left with a part of her. She’ll always be there with me. I’m so proud of her. I don’t think I would have been so upset that she died if she wasn’t so special to me. But she really was. It’s so sad. I don’t know what to say. I definitely feel it too. I feel it.”
For those fans in mourning, MTV has launched a new website to help ease the pain.
