    Hatred Of a Character Tranferred To Actress

    who plays her.

    While looking for some interesting articles to post on Lifesupporters, the following story blew me away. I don't understand why a role in a show of any kind would transfer to the actor/actress. As you read both articles, please post your thoughts.

    Emmys 2013: the winners and losers - The Buzz

    Take that, haters. The actor that has been the target of so much abuse she penned a New York Times article about it had sweet Emmy revenge when her performance as Skyler White in Breaking Bad led to her first best supporting actress in a drama win.

    LOS ANGELES — PLAYING Skyler White on the television show “Breaking Bad” for the past five seasons has been one of the most rewarding creative journeys I’ve embarked on as an actor. But the role has also taken me on another kind of journey — one I never would have imagined.

    My character, to judge from the popularity of Web sites and Facebook pages devoted to hating her, has become a flash point for many people’s feelings about strong, nonsubmissive, ill-treated women. As the hatred of Skyler blurred into loathing for me as a person, I saw glimpses of an anger that, at first, simply bewildered me.

    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise

    I'm guilty of this. If I don't like a character I don't like the actor or actress. I do this to Anna Paquin (spelling?) who plays Sookie in True Blood. The guy who plays Edward in that sparkly vampire movie. And yes, even Anna Gunn. I dislike her character so much on Breaking Bad that I cannot help but to allow it to spill over into reality!

    That being said, she is an amazing actress! Everyone on Breaking Bad is!!

    How unfortunate for her! She played that role very well.

    Alison Arngrim Had to be the worst hated actress ever for the part she played

    Nellie Oleson on Little House on the Prairie

    She even has her own web page Alison Arngrim Official Home Page Confessions of a Prairie Bitch

    People even spit on her in real life , still to this day !!

    Nellie Olsen was a saint compared to that little girl the Olsens adopted in the later shows.
