Can we talk for a moment about Lyndie Greenwood? I’m having a real hard time understanding the shade being thrown her way. Of the original cast, she and Tom Mison appear to be the only ones who’ve made it through 3 seasons of Sleepy Hollow. (There should be a special Emmy award just for that.) Fox Execs have killed or disappeared more residents of Sleepy Hollow than the Headless Horseman.
Now, Lyndie and Tom are grown up people who’ve managed their lives without my input, but I had the pleasure of meeting this actor and when you’ve met someone, stood by her in a sacred space, hugged her, shared some words, and let her ring your 1685 church bell, you just don’t want to see her hurt.
Regardless of what happened to Nicole Beharie, or what happens to Sleepy Hollow, Lyndie has been a good friend of the Sleepy Hollow fandom. In S2 when she and Orlando didn’t seem to have many lines in the scripts, she was out and about promoting the show. Go back to your old tweets. She and Orlando spent a lot of time on the road meeting fans.
Last year when Sleepy Hollow pulled out of the SDCC, she and Orlando hosted a breakfast with some lucky fans. It was a small consolation, but it was something, and they did it.
While on hiatus, she kept in touch with fans via Twitter and Instagram and shared career news and travel stories.
I know that the Jenny/Joe story line bugged a lot of us. Not because of them, but because we wanted to see the relationship between Crane and Abbie advance.
I know that her views on #Ichabbie were not popular with fans – but in retrospect, she knew something we didn’t know until last Friday night. Maybe she was trying to help us “temper expectations” as Abbie said once to Luke Morales.
Lyndie has given us many memorable performances as Jenny Mills. Her work with Nicole Beharie to create the honest relationship of the “Sisters Mills” is something Sleepy Hollow can be proud of. “Mama” is just something you don’t see everyday on TV.
Lyndie has brought strength, integrity, and vulnerability to her portrayal of Jenny Mills. And she earned the title of Mrs BAMF because she literally can kick anyone’s ass if she has to. She’s also humorous, I mean she pulled magic bullets out of demon corpse for crying out loud.
What I’m trying to say #Sleepyheads is can we show our love for Abbie Mills/Nicole Beharie without making collateral damage of the remaining cast members?
We aren’t the only ones hurting.
