    I forgot about MI. I remember being surprised about that after watching reruns of the show during the late '70s, since Graves was the star on CBS when I was a kid. [I]Twelve o'Clock[ High/I] was still slightly earlier, FWIW.

    Sarah Lance was recast!

    Wait, what? I'm pretty sure Alyson Hannigan was Willow in the pilot of BtVS. And changing hair color isn't nearly the same as casting a completely different person.

    Well...Sarah Lance wasn't a lead character in Season 1, so I don't think that counts.

    Yeah, but even in death she was kind of central to some of the arcs of season 1 and they used that actress in pictures so I think it's relevant.

    Yeah totally reasonable that they will just find a new character to take on the mantle. At this point we donít know

    It's going to be Kate Kane. Just like Batman will always be Bruce Wayne. I think part of the disaster of the Catwoman movie was she wasn't Selina Kyle. Or for that matter in Batman & Robin that Batgirl wasn't Barbara Gordon.

I don't think anyone's scared of doing anything different, rather that recasting even the main character is not unheard of in television so there's no real reason at this point to imagine them needing to move on to something different in the first place.

    Alura was recast in season 3 of Supergirl and no one made any comment about Alura looking different in season 1. And it wasn't just a cameo. Alura played a big role in season 3.

    It’s not confirmed anywhere that they are recasting Kate Kane but I still support that theory

    They did? Interesting. Is there a way to see the other one? And who was the actress for Willow?

    Also, if that other pilot never aired, does it really fit this conversation on switching actresses?

    Idk man I was just clarifying that there were indeed two pilots.

    The first Willow was not Alyson. It was a different actress.

    Also Bianca Lawson was cast as Cordialla before filming. She left to go do another show on UPN and came back as Kendra.

    Other shows that changed leads.

    Family Matters- Judy was played by another actress (Valerie Jones) before Jamiee Foxworth. You could still see her in the openig credits of season 1.
    Jarrett Lemon played Mark on Step By Step before he was replaced. If you look closely at the credits you do see him.
    Married With Children had a different Bud & Kelly. The actress who played Kelly had a sister on Kids Inc (when Fergie was on it).
    Full House filmed a pilot with a different father before Bob Saget arrived.
    Charmed had a different sister before Shannon arrived.
    Big Bang Theory had different pilots before we saw Penny.
    Spin City ERASED a character after some episodes aired.
    Smallville had a different Martha.
    Mash wrote out the late Tim Brown's chracter because they found out black doctors were not around at that time.

    The actresses' name was Riff Regan if I remember right.
