‘Married…With Children’ made Christina Applegate a Hollywood sweetheart in the 1980s. The beach blonde Californian actress played Kelly Bundy for 10 years until the show’s final eleventh season.
But what only a handful of people are aware of is the fact that Applegate wasn’t the one playing Kelly from the very beginning. The pilot episode of the famous series starred Tina Caspary as Kelly Bundy and Hunter Carson as Bud Bundy.
The producers thought the duo didn’t really fit the characters, so they replaced them with Applegate and David Faustino.
The original pilot filmed with Caspary was different from the broadcasted version which starred Applegate. People argued if the reason behind the change was really the fitting. Many thought that Applegate got the role because she already had connections thanks to her mother, an actress, and her father who was a record producer.
E! True Hollywood Story revealed the story in the 2000s and soon the original pilot with Caspary was uploaded all over the internet. The story caused multiple backlashes by the fans of the series.
