As quoted by Our weekly, Jason Alexander reveals to Howard Stern why Susan Ross was killed. He said that he “couldn’t figure out how to play Swedish actress Heidi, and their instincts “always fool” in scenes together. Alexander wasn’t the only one on set. Seinfeld” felt the same way. He also told Stern that Jerry Seinfeld and Julia Louis-Dreyfus themselves said they couldn’t act with Swedberg, and that they wanted to “kill” her character.
The stars of “Seinfeld” granted their wishes in the 1996 episode “The Invitation”. Susan is poisoned by toxic glue among the cheap wedding invitation envelopes George claims to have purchased. Her untimely departure will cause generations of TV viewers to rethink envelope licking.
After the interview on “The Howard Stern Show”, some people interpreted Alexander’s comments as hateful to Sweden. Comedian replied in a post on Twitter that he feels “officially awful” about how his remarks have been misinterpreted. Alexander made it clear that he and the rest of the “Seinfeld” cast and crew “really liked” Swedberg, and that she was “a nice, lovely person.” He also apologized directly to his former co-star and called her “lover”.
