why was erika flores replaced on dr. quinn

Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman
Well, I am working on getting some screen captures done of the Dr. Quinn episodes that Erika starred in but it is taking longer than I thought since my computer is not being very helpful! In the meantime here is the most asked question about Erika and why she was gone from Dr. Quinn in season three: Why Erika had to leave Dr. Quinn: Since Erika was a minor, her father controlled her contracts and finances. When the time came for contract renewals, he didn't agree with the salary she would be paid, so he gave her an ultimatum: refuse and hope for more money, or accept and forfeit all of his support. Since Erika didn't have any other options, she had to refuse. As a result, she was forced to leave the show, and Jessica Bowman became Colleen Cooper. Here is the official press release from producers of the show: (February 7, 1996) Over the past several months we have received numerous letters regarding the re-casting of Colleen on our show.


When this change occurred, we released a statement to the affect of, Unwilling to commit to 5 years, Erika Flores is leaving the series to pursue other interests. Well, its now over one year and, the fact remains that Erika Flores left the show to pursue other interests. Now, what are those other interests? I can tell you its primarily school. She's auditioned for movies, but her primary focus, to our knowledge, is school. After all, she's only 16 years old. The events leading up to her decision to leave the show did include CBS's request that she sign a 5 year contract. Erika did not want to commit to that extended period of time, and CBS would not allow it (all the series regulars, including Jane Seymour, are required to sign a 5 year contract. ) We, as producers of the show, were able to convince CBS to double Erika's salary in an attempt to keep her on the show. But she still was unwilling to commit to 5 years.


This being the case, we had no other choice but to replace her. I hope that this will help clarify your questions about Erika Flores. She remains a very close friend of the show, often visiting the set for lunch, and we wish her all the best in her future pursuits. (Producer, Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman ) 1996 CBS - I've been wondering when "Christy" is coming back. I read about four months ago that there were 13 new episodes. Is this true? It is, and we know for a fact that no one can be more frustrated about CBS' delay in scheduling them than executive producer Barney Rosenzweig, whose "Cagney & Lacey" experiences demonstrated that he'll do everything he possibly can in support of his shows. Actually, we're sure that title star Kellie Martin also is anxious for them to be seen, based on an interview we had with her about the "Christy" tale that was shown last Thanksgiving. The hold-up can be attributed in part to the batch of new shows CBS has been putting on the air in recent weeks ("The Wright Verdicts," "Under One Roof," etc. ), and also to the change in CBS regime that has occurred since the new "Christy" installments were ordered.


Since there's a definite expense involved in filming those stories on location, we'd expect that they'll be shown at some point. but as of press time, exactly when that might happen remained up in the air. - Did Charlie Sheen play a small part in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," and what film was he first featured in? Yes, he had a tiny role in that 1986 Matthew Broderick comedy hit, though he had a bigger part a couple of years earlier in the 1984 adventure "Red Dawn. " However, Sheen's very first screen role was with his father Martin in the acclaimed 1974 TV-movie "The Execution of Private Slovik. " You can also see Charlie in last year's action-comedy picture "The Chase" when it makes its HBO debut Saturday, April 15.
