Not sure how that's an example...
* The final storyline of the SoapOpera ''Series/{{Loving}}'' had a SerialKiller stalking and killing about half of the cast members. When interviewed and asked if she feared that her character would be one of the victims, star Debbi Morgan, who played Angie, laughed and declared that she not was not the least bit worried, as all of the victims so far had been white. (behind the scenes, she had presumably not been approached by TPTB and told that she was being fired, as no doubt happened to the portrayers of the murder victims.)
