Many fans had been skeptical of Quinn’s diagnosis, according to TMZ, under the rationale that she wanted to avoid conflict with cast members on the Netflix series, as the show’s villain character.Quinn told E!’s Daily Pop late last year the she had grown tired of the villain moniker on the series.
‘I actually really loved it at first, and I was embracing it because I love to put on a show and be a character,’ she said. ‘It’s so fun for me, you know? However, I was hoping that there would be multiple sides that would be shown – my vulnerability, different things – but throughout the seasons, it just seemed to be this one-note consistency of my character portrayal.
‘So it was hard for me. Especially when I was going through a lot this season. It’s fun, but people need to realize it’s a show.’Quinn said that she felt like there was ‘definitely favoritism in the editing room’ when it came to how she was portrayed on the series.
