Over the years, many major characters have had their actors re-cast at various stages of development. Here are 6 of the major re-casts through the years:


  • Audri DuBois was originally cast as Trini in Mighty Morphin’. She even filmed a pilot episode before Thuy Trang was re-cast.
  • Erin Simms was originally cast as Maya in Lost Galaxy. She did some promotional shots before Cerina Vincent was re-cast.

  • Natasha Allas was originally cast as Princess Shayla in Wild Force. She shot 5 episodes before Ann Marie Crouch was re-cast.
  • Heidi Bradhurt was originally cast as Summer in RPM. She was later dropped to become an extra before Rose McIver was re-cast.
