93 March 1st, 2013 Victoria Principal Issues Statement Revealing She is NOT returning to DALLAS!

Courtesy/CBS

After months of speculation and hope that Victoria Principal might return to Dallas in the role of Pamela Barnes Ewing, today that has come to an official halt.  It has been previously reported that it is the Ewing clan finding out that J.R. is behind Pam’s disappearance that will be the reason that J.R. meets his maker on the late Larry Hagman’s final episode on Monday night’s March 11th episode of the TNT reboot.

However today exclusively via Deadline.com, Victoria Principal came forth with a statement as to why she will not be returning to the show and explains why she would never reprise her character, last seen in a fiery car crash on the original series.

Here is what Principal stated: “Since the inception of  Dallas, the creators and fans around the world have referred to Bobby and Pam, as the Romeo & Juliet of Dallas. I could not agree more. And since the original author of this scenario, William Shakespeare, felt compelled to make theirs a tragic love story, of epic and unforgettable deathly loss, I think I shall respect that very successful example, and leave the legacy of Bobby & Pam’s tragic love story, undisturbed and intact.

When I filmed Pam’s fatal car accident, for me that was the punctuation mark on my role as Pam. I cannot be held responsible for any choices made by producers, once I left Dallas, but I do take responsibility for my decision, not to risk tarnishing Bobby & Pam’s love story, with a desperate reappearance. I made this decision a long time ago with a loving and respectful heart for Dallas, Bobby & Pam and all faithful fans.”

Alright long time Dallas faithfuls, how do you feel about Victoria’s statement?  Are you upset that she won’t be coming ba to the show?  Let us know!

    Oh Please! Give me a BREAK! Why do actors feel the need for this crap?? You claim the be actor…THEN ACT! You played Pam Ewing on a nighttime soap that made you famous…FANS made yuo who you are not Shakespeare. You didn’t origunate the role of Scarlet O’hara…show some respect for your fans and come back. But to give everyone this BS about respectingbbobby and Pam as Romeo and Juliet??? It’s Horseshit. If she wants to be honest just say the truth…MONEY! It’s ALWAYS about money.
    Hey Vicky P….See U Next Tuesday!

    From what I read about Shakespeare if he could make a buck on it, he would have easily written a sequel to Romeo and Juliet where he would explain how they did not really die at the end of the last play. It is amazing how artistic integrity goes out the window if you flash the right amount of dollars signs in front of someone.

    I guess I’m a cynic, but I with you joe- this is about cash, not preserving the artistic intention of the story, because regardless if she plays Pam or not, if the producers want the character back, she will be back. If VP really wanted to preserve the story, you would think she would want to be the actress to portray the character she help breathe life into, in order to be certain it was done properly and with respect to the history of the show.

    I feel the same. It all about money. If it wasn’t for her fans she would not be famous.i feel she should just tell the truth. Even if its not about money. But to same something about Shakespeare sound dumb.

    Joe – I think youre right on the money except for one thing that I vehimently disagree with – the stuff about respecting the love between Bobby and Pam is NOT horseshit – its RHINOSSAURUS SHIT. Remember – Rhinos leave better loads than horses!! So it is for the respect of the love for Bobby and Pam.

    Agreed. If she doesn’t want to come back, then just say so, instead of engaging in all this jibberish. I haven’t seen the other characters “tarnished” in the new series so why does she think Pam & Bobby would be???

    agreed !! for her to say the reboot is a desperate reappearence is and insult to all of us who love te show and characters ,its fine without her ,they can always recast anyway !!

    Robert replied

    “Desperate reappearance”? Reboot? In my opinion, its not a reboot. When the last episode of season 14 ended, I didnt think it could be the end. To many stories where left untold. These last two years arent “reboots”. I consider them seasons 15 and 16. Bringing the original cast back…it wasnt a desperation move. It was a logical move. If V. Principal thinks it was a desperation move by the others, Im VERY glad she is not involved. I want to see Dallas where the actors WANT to be there. Not be there just for the paycheck.

    I liked Victoria Principal’s portrayal as Pam, but the simple answer is to replace her if Dallas wants to bring back the character. It is done on the soaps all the time, sometimes with successful results – Laura Wright as Carly, Kassie DePaiva as Blair, Trevor St. John as Todd and Robin Strasser as Dorian. It can be done.

    Mary SF replied

    The producers of the original Dallas were not fools- like all good soap writers they made sure the heroine “died” in a manner that if recasting became necessary- disfigurement and plastic surgery could explain her new appearance, and damage to her vocal cords changes to her voice. Of course there will be some fans who will never accept a recast, but for most people, those us used to soaps, a recast seems logical if the writers wish to bring Pam Ewing back to the canvas.

    I don’t think that Victoria’s decision will matter one way or the other. The show has proven to be a success without her (although, it could make for an excellent story line if she did return), but the show will definitely go on. I am always looking forward to a good Monday night in Dallas!

    I wish she would return but I’ve read that she is very busy with her cosmetics/fashion business. I loved Pam & Bobby. I think it would give the show a much needed storyline carried over from the original. If not Victoria Principal’s Pam, how about bringing back Priscilla Presley – Bobby’s first love, Jenna Wade?

    Presley has had so much plastic surgery that even if she returned it would look like a recast.

    Presley did not play Pam…Victoria Principal did!

    Uhm….yes….but I was referring to the last line in the comment ….about Jenna Wade. Yeesh….

    Mary replied

    That’s what I was thinking too, bring Priscilla back as Jenna Wade. I guess I was one of the minority who had hoped to see Bobby and Jenna end up together.

    I believe soap fans are to damned used to the dead coming back, and they should not come back. it’s stupid.. and not at all in the legacy of Dallas..
    Leave it be as it is and should be .
    Victoria is very wise to leave it as it is, one of the great tragic love stories of all time.

    Bullshit! She is a drama queen. I say recast with a better actress and make VP eat her pathetic words. Not impressed by her statement at all. She married a wealthy physician and forgot all about Dallas. The show did well without her and it will again. Very disappointed in VP.

    Actually Dallas did recast Pam for hospital scenes played by an actress called Margaret Michael’s. Miss Ellie, Kristin, Digger Barnes (Pam’s dad), Gary Ewing and Jenna Wade were all played by multiple actors. In fact 3 different actresses played Jenna with Morgan Fairchild originating the role.

    It must be nice to be able to turn down a role when there are so many over 50 actresses who cant find work because Hollywood, they claim, wont write good roles for their age group. If the show really needs to bring back Pam, im positive they could find a willing actress to take over the role. Its been done b4.

    I meant to say its even been done b4 on Dallas with Jenna, Kristen, and even Miss Ellie for 1 season.

  15. k/kay says:

    I would have been shocked if she came back she is a very wealthy lady and she basically retired from acting quite some time ago. This is one time when an actor declines and says no she means no. Leave it alone. Their were a lot of feelings when they made that whole year a dream just because Larry Hagman decided he needed his buddy back a lot of storylines were just dropped. I guess Pam dreamed over at Knots Landing since Gary mourned Bobby on that soap. Linda Gray won’t be honest about it anymore but she left because they kept making her a drunk., now she’s back and they still are bringing it up I do not watch it because I like the good old memories maybe like Ms. Principal.

    Wow. Doesn’t she realize that current day audiences don’t even know who she is/was? It’s a good thing she’s not returning. Her head is so big, there’d be no room for anyone else to share the screen with her. Shakespeare? Juliet? Surely she jests.

    I, for one, am glad she’s not coming back. Her statement is so stuffy. It makes it sound like she needs to remove a stick from somewhere. DALLAS doesn’t need her, and frankly, neither do its fans. May she be content to push her face cream on QVC.

    Zing! Her statement seemed sweet but packed a punch, didn’t it? I think they should recast the role. Like it or not, Pam did survive and did leave her son behind in the original Dallas. There is a lot of story left to tell.

    I agree with Miss Principal’s assessment. Life has moved on to such a degree the character of Pam is no longer relevant other than to revive old story. The reboot successfully incorporates enough history to make DALLAS 2.0 appealing and fresh, and not a rerun.

    Um Bobby died on the original Dallas and came back Dusty Farlow died in a plane crash and was brought back. Gary and Val died on Knots Landing and came back. Dallas was gonna bring Jock back but audiences didn’t want Jock alive and played by a new actor, so it turned out it was. Jock impersonator and the real Jock Ewing was still dead after all. There are rumors that the producers are thinking about casting EMMA SAMMS as the new Pam, but isn’t she back on GH?

    If they recast Pam, thats if they intend to bring back the character, id like to see Jacklyn Smith if they can get her to do it. She has more the Pam look than Emma Sams.

    Since Pam went out in a fiery crash and was “last seen” in bandages…
    she could easily be replaced by another actress – if the Dallas creative team decide to bring Pam back.

    I like Ann. Good actress and she is awesome with Bobby.

    I think the actress is rich from other endeavors and probably is out of acting and has been for long time. Unless I am wrong she is doing better in business. Pam was great character and well liked but Victoria was not necessarily a character actor, if you know what I mean. Plus she may not want to play Pam as older women.

    Daytime soaps have characters that are beloved even though the actor is not great. I will let it go at that. Recasting is iffy. I liked NuBlair but not NuCarly. That is me.

    While I do respect Victoria Principal’s decision not to return to Dallas (that put her where she is today, a BILLIONAIRE that unforunately is what MONEY AND SUCCESS DOES TO SOME PEOPLE). Out of PURE RESPECT for Larry Hagman that died she should atleast make one apearance.But then again acting on DALLAS IS BELOW HER. If her MEGA EMPIRE goes Bankrupt it would serve her right, the world will get MAD at her and that couldbe detrimental to HER EMPIRE. I am not a fan of soap operas but this one DALLAS was never missed the original and the sequel.

    On the original DALLAS Jock Ewing (Jim Davis died), now J.R.Ewing died(Larry Hagman), now is the time for Josh Henderson (John Ross) J.R.’s son to step up and take over his Daddy’s place on the show. John Ross has already established on the show that he is and can be just as backstabbing busunessman as J.R. Ewing ever was, he even UNDERMINED J.R. on one episode already. Just put thar hat on and those boots and you have a 21 year old J.R.Ewing only more undermining than Daddy was. Josh Henderson had a good teacher in Larry Hagman. The show will go on.

    Kristen could come back to finish J.R. off. Maybe the producers just mention a possible Pam return to throw fans off, and its Kristen coming back. If she was killed off…which i think happened on the show originally…they could change history like most soaps are notorius for and say she escaped a mental hospital where J.R. kept her all these years. Kristen was known for ‘Who shot J.R.’ and now she’ll be known as the person who murdered him. I think the late great Larry Hagman would approve.

    I’m disappointed that vp doesn’t want to return but respect her decision. I for one can think of at least a couple of jobs that i have left and would not want to go back to doing. I have also returned to a previous work place before and found that it’s not the same second time around, better to have good memories than compare how it was, to how it is now. I am also quite shocked how some view vp as being up herself and imply it was not enough money for her, this is the same vp that donated a six figure sum to help clear up the oil spill in the gulf!

    I watched very little of the original Dallas,.I watched Knots Landing loved it. I did make it a point to watch Bobbie in the shower. Didn’t care who shot JR. didn’t watch. But I like the new Dallas,if VP doesn’t return good luck to her,and lets move on.I like ANN and as I have no idea of her history and what happened to Pam. Fine. I really don’t care,I think the show may have been better if Bobby’s son acted like JR and John Ross was the good brother,but WTH. I like the show and its a great time for a prime time soap. TIIC of the daytime soaps think they are over.
    Notice ABC keeps cancelling the daytime soaps and putting them on at night. The shows they have at night are all glorified soaps, ,revenge,Once upon a time, red widow, etc etc etc.
    VP can do what ever she wants,and the show will be the same.

    Well you might find it insulting but the late Larry Hagman did not. The final season of the original Dallas LH was on Larry King and was asked if Victoria Principal was going to make an appearance he said no and he respected her decision he told Larry King she was a very successful business woman her cosmetics company is worth over 1 billion dollars he said why would she need to come back. She chose another path and if they decide to recast I am sure she will not carry on like Ron Moss from B&B did when he left.

    Since Pam did not die…it would be nice to see cameos of her. It doesn’t seem natural for a mother to permanently to stay gone (because of a car accident; no matter how horrific). Think about it…there was no indication she didn’t want to be a mom. People get divorced; life goes on. There are times we go back (i.e., death, sickness, reunions, business etc).

    Personally I think it is selfish that VP is doing this. As much as I would like to see Pam and Bobby back together Ann Ewing is growing on me. If VP does not want to come back I think a good scenario would be that she comes back for a few episodes. It is discovered JR did have something to do with her disappearance. When it is discovered what was behind the disappearance Bobby and Christopher finally have closure and they move on and attend Pam’s funeral along with Ann. Pam tells Ann on her deathbed to please continue to look after Bobby and Christopher and Christopher’s twins. Finally she disowns Cliff as her brother and forces Chris’s fraudulent wife’s hand and makes her hand over those babies to Christopher and Elena

    I wish she would come back. I think it would be good to have as many of the original Dallas characters back on the set as possible. The original Dallas and this newer Dallas are just stories – Victoria may be taking the part she played a little too seriously. There should be no reason she can’t return and let us enjoy her once again. It certainly should benefit the series. (I’m wondering if there isn’t another reason she doesn’t want to return….a reason she doesn’t want to reveal. I hope not.)

    For me, I personally believe that it is a combination of factors as to why Ms. Principal does not wish to return to the role and to DALLAS: For her to return to the role, she would have to play a character that has to in some form account for not staying in touch with her son for many years; and, yes, I do believe that her aging and looking radically different than she did when she appeared on DALLAS, the original series that is, does cause her to have qualms about being on the newer DALLAS and being compared to others who arguably have aged a bit more positively, so to speak. As far as $$$ goes, if Ms. Principal said no to the $$$ actually offered her to return, she must have had in her mind a darn good reason for that. :-)

    I heard Victoria Principal in an interview once stating “the car blew up, Pam died, that was it”, and all this nonsense blah blah blah about respecting the writers wishes back then, she asked for an exist and they did it with taste…. blah blah blah! This is a soap opera Victoria, people come back from the dead a million times over! Didn’t Bobby with the shower scene? Your character was one of the reasons I watched the original Dallas in the 80s! It was because of Sue Ellen’s alcoholic neurotic life…. that gets so old!
    If the fans want to see you, and there is a paycheck for you, don’t be so up-iddy high and mighty. You are able to choose which direction you want to go with your life, but for the viewers, we’d like to see you return! And I’d also like to see Gary and Valene make a few appearances with the twins!
