Kalinda Sharma left The Good Wife in the season 6 finale Sunday night — and actress Archie Panjabi has no regrets about her character leaving the hit CBS show.
Panjabi spoke to Entertainment Weekly about why the time was right for Kalinda to leave the show behind. “In terms of the character, I think Kalinda’s evolution over the series is kind of culminating to what I believe to be the perfect time for her exit,” Panjabi said. “She was dissatisfied with the job, coupled with troubling issues she’s had with Lemond Bishop and the ever-present kind of friction she’s had with Alicia, kind of tied the bow on Kalinda’s arc. It was the right time.”
There were no tears on her final day on set, she added: “It was just a mixture of feeling sad to leave, but that every bone in my body was like this just right feels right. So I guess I felt very calm.”
