When Natacha Karam played Marjan Marwani on television, it was love at first sight: The Lone Star We were immediately drawn to this fierce, rebellious, and feisty woman.
Even more significant, however, is Natacha’s ability, as Marjan, to not only dispel stereotypes but also to provide community representation, and we are here to support her efforts.
Naturally, whenever a rumor that Natacha is leaving 9-1-1 circulates: We panic immediately, Lone Star. After Marjan was involved in a car accident during a blizzard last season, it was unclear whether she would return. Additionally, there is a new rumor that Natacha will not return for the remainder of Season 4.
We obviously hope that is not the case, but let’s look into it, shall we?
Natacha Karam is leaving ‘9-1-1: Lone Star,’ but why?
On the show 9-1-1, Natacha Karam portrayed Marjan Marwani: Lone Star since the beginning She addressed Hi! about how crucial it is to play this character:
She told the magazine, “One of the things I wanted to make clear was that this is one individual woman on her journey… ” Specificity is where we see ourselves in all storytelling, so it is important for people to see themselves in the details because that is where we see ourselves accurately. When you take the time to fill in the details, I believe that is what creates characters that are complete, real, and dynamic.”
Hopefully, Natacha will continue to play the character because it has such a profound impact on her, right?
In the trailer for 9-1-1’s Season 4, Episode 5: In Lone Star, Rob Lowe’s Owen Strand instructs Marjan to “get the hell out” of a burning structure.
Marjan’s statement that she “froze up in the field because I was afraid of doing it wrong” is then cut off in the advertisement. Marjan then leaves the AFD and rides off on her motorcycle, as we see.
Despite the fact that we primarily know Natacha from 9-1-1: She has worked in the industry for a long time, Lone Star. She may also be familiar to you from Homeland, The Brave, and The Old Guard.
So, what exactly is Natacha’s departure rumor? Indeed, It appears to be the gossip might have begun from the trailer to the Feb. 21 episode.
Marjan certainly appears to be riding off into the sunset in the trailer, but editors love to fool us, so we remain skeptical.
A positive sign is that Natacha is still promoting the show on her social media accounts without mentioning her departure. The show’s creators—Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Tim Minear, and FOX—have not mentioned a departure either.
Even though there is no evidence to indicate that Natacha is leaving, we would wager that it was just editing trickery and that she will return.
Keep an eye out for 9-1-1: Every Tuesday at 8 p.m. EST, Lone Star.
