There is a risk in killing of deaf characters
played by the deaf actors in TV series.
Deaf actress Shoshannah Stern played the role of
Bonnie in the Jericho TV series. She probably was
one of the most popular deaf TV characters, as
she was constantly discussed in many deaf
internet discussion groups.
The plot asked for Bonnie to be killed
eventually during the series.
So, to kill off Bonnie is to kill off
the Deaf TV ratings. Well, that is
show business.
