Ashley Fink as 'Glee'-club member Lauren Zizes will have reduced role in season three
Heavyweight actress conspicuously missing from official season three photo gallery
Michael Ausiello over at TVLine got the scoop, which reveals that Lauren goes through a major upheaval in episode one - resulting in a heavily-reduced role in the onscreen goings-on at McKinley High this year.
Ausiello points out that questions over Fink's continued presence on the series were inflamed last week, when Fox released official gallery photos from season three that failed to include her character - viewed as odd at the time given her greatly elevated role during season two.
Though a rep for the show declined comment and Fink's reps couldn't be reached, another anonymous "insider" minimized any negative connotations by stating that as a recurring character, Lauren isn't guaranteed an active part in major storylines the way the series regulars are. Not to mention that this season, the show's writers are being forced to deal with an influx of four new "Glee Project" winners.
Whatever the case, Gleeks are sure to be speaking up as this bit of news makes its way across the web. So what do you think?
"Glee" Season 3 premieres Tuesday, September 20th at 8 PM on Fox.
