And the saga about Archie Panjabi’s final scene in ‘The Good Wife’ from last season continues… Archie left the show at the end of the last season. It’s rumored that she and Julianna Margulies had a falling out a few years ago, which resulted in their characters (who had been BFFs), not appearing on-screen together on the show for several years. The audience was very much looking forward to a final scene between Archie and Juliana’s characters before Archie left the show, and they got the scene, but it was pretty obvious that the scene was a split-screen (i.e., they shot the scene separately and put them together in post-production).
After keeping silent all summer, Juliana said this about the scene:
It was shot the way Robert wanted to shoot it, and the story line, too. You also have to remember, there’s difficulty … [Panjabi] was also doing another show, called The Fall. I went along with whatever Robert asked me to do and I did it happily.”
So it sounds like Juliana isn’t denying that they shot the scene separately, and she seems to be implying that they had to do that not because there’s a rift between the two actresses but due to scheduling conflicts.
Archie took to twitter to respond to that comment:

Sounds like Juliana and Archie need to get their story straight! Juliana also denied that the two of them were feuding.
Right, I’ve heard about [the feud]. Who says that? It’s totally gossip. I heard that question had been asked to Robert King. There’s no story there, sorry … I actually had heard [that rumor] and I feel that it has been talked about and answered. I feel people just like to have gossip or make something into something that isn’t there. There’s no animosity on my part. It’s a shame, because I wonder if it was two men, when one finds out that he f**ked his best friend’s wife, if it would get that same attention, you know what I mean?”
Archie didn’t say anything about that denial. Sometimes silence truly does speak louder than words ;).
