Edelstein joined Lone Star in the second season playing Owen’s ex-wife who arrives in Austin after her son gets hospitalized. She had a recurring role in the second season of the series.
Expanding his thoughts on Edelstein’s exit from the show, showrunner, Tim Minear told Variety,
“Life is never one thing. And it’s relentless. I wanted Gwyn’s death to happen the way these sometimes do – out of the blue without fanfare. It comes at a moment for TK when things are good. He and Carlos are at the next level. His fire family has been reunited. His mother’s death is a game changer for TK. But also for Owen and Carlos. The way TK deals with this loss and grief will tell us a lot about where he is and where he came from. And Owen will have his own reckoning with his past with Gwyn.”
Edelstein has appeared in two out of seven episodes of season 3, with the eighth episode as her last. You can catch all episodes of 9-1-1: Lone Star on Mondays, 8/7c, on Fox.
