Thank God more people...especially her former cast mates are now aware. The lack of reaction made her death even more sad.

According to Twitter there have been over 720 new tweets mentioning her since her death was announced. There should be a lot more but its better than nothing.

This whole thing has hit me hard. I just cant believe it. It's going to be difficult rewatching Everwood knowing Stephanie is gone.

I'm really sad to hear about Stephanie. I'm a huge Everwood fan and I always loved her character Nina. RIP.

It's just so sad. Thoughts and prayers to her family and friends.

Regarding watching Everwood in a different way... for me, I separate characters from actors so it won't be an issue. I am the type that cringes when real life actors date each other because I'm scared it will affect the art on the screen or book. Then again, Everwood is my favorite show, so I could never stop watching or let anything get in the way of watching, lol.

That said, my mind will wander over to Stephanie (for sure) during my next watches when Nina is on the screen. It's going to be weird initially. I'll just have to keep my mind focused on Nina, the character.

Another love I have is Harry Potter... I'm a Book Traditionalist and don't love the films all too much... however, I do watch them. There's a few actors in the films who have passed like Richard Harris and Alan Rickman (and several others). Harris and Rickman are so good they really are who I imagine as Dumbledore and Snape.

So yes, I guess you have to separate as much as you can.

The article/statement:

Quote:
Everwood creator Greg Berlanti and showrunner Rina Mimoun are paying their respects to the late Stephanie Niznik, whose death was first reported on Friday. In a joint statement, the executive producers remember the actress as an “incredible friend” and a “nurturing mother figure” on the set of the beloved WB drama.

“Everwood was more than a television show. It was a family,” the statement reads. “We recently lost the mother of our tribe, Stephanie Niznik. Stephanie played Nina, the next door neighbor to Andy Brown, and the woman who helped raise his children as he struggled with being a single father. She continued that role offscreen by being an incredible friend, a nurturing mother figure to our younger cast members and an artist who brought warmth, compassion and humor to every episode and our set. Everyone who was lucky enough to know and work with her will miss her dearly.”

Berlanti and Mimoun’s tribute follows similar acknowledgments by some of Niznik’s co-stars, including Scott Wolf (who played Nina’s longtime boyfriend Jake) and Vivien Cardone (who played Andy’s daughter Delia), which you can read here. The EPs were last reunited with the Everwood cast at a 15th anniversary panel in 2017.

Niznik was just 52 when she died unexpectedly in Encino, Calif. on June 23. A cause of death has not been disclosed.

^ I love how the common theme from cast members is they were very close, like a family. This common theme has been discussed for years, too.

I'm glad that news of her passing is finally getting out and that her former Everwood fellow cast members are expressing their condolences.
