Nominated for an Emmy as mentally unstable First Lady Martha Logan in ’24,’ Jean Smart says she wanted to return to the hit Fox show — but it’s now too late.
“Well, it’s done now, I think,” Smart told Moviefone at Wednesday’s premiere of ‘Youth in Revolt’ in Hollywood, of the possibility of returning to ’24.’
“I would have loved to have gone back again,” Smart said. “But I don’t know. I think Martha is in a rubber room somewhere. They kind of inferred that she offed herself. I think she did.”
I believe that Smart is referring to a conversation between Olivia Taylor and Aaron Pierce in episode 7×13: Olivia says “It must’ve been hard for you, what happened to her” to which Aaron replies that he’d rather not talk about it.
I don’t think the writers told Jean Smart any specific information, she is probably just speculating about her characters fate like the rest of us. I loved the Martha Logan character, so I hope she isn’t dead!
