The Blacklist team lost a member amid Friday night’s two-hour episode. Mozhan Marnò, who has played Agent Samar Navabi since the James Spader-featuring show’s second season, reported she isn’t coming back to the series.
After the uncommon episode publicized, Marnò expressed gratitude toward fans on Instagram for their help and detailed how the part has completely changed her.
“Five years ago, I got a call from my manager telling me I got the role of Samar on The Blacklist,” Marnò began. “Almost overnight, my life changed. It has been an amazing experience; I have made mistakes, I have made friends, I have grown. I’ve been in the room with some incredible people. And, every time I get on the subway in New York, someone affectionately yells out, ‘Yo, Samar!’ But, last summer, I decided that I was ready for my next chapter, and the producers very graciously granted my request to move on from the show.”
She included, “And so, tonight, my life changes again. As my last episode airs, I just wanted to express gratitude to my colleagues, my producers, and the fans of the show: thank you. It’s been so much fun.”
Toward the beginning of Season 6, everybody discovered that Samar never totally recouped after she about suffocated following a car accident. Amid Friday’s episode, she was told she has vascular dementia, which was causing her mini-strokes that harmed her brain.
Mossad learned of Samar’s health and chose she could be a risk, so they put out a hit on her. The Osterman Umbrella Company got on her trail, and Sama acknowledged she needed to escape on the off chance that she needed to live. Aram Motjabi (Amir Arison) needed to run with her, yet she wouldn’t give him a chance to demolish his life for her sake. Along these lines, she got help from Red (Spader) to escape the nation.
Blacklist maker Jon Bokenkamp previously implied that Samar and Aram’s engagement would not go well in an interview with TVLine in January. He said her health issues would “change the landscape of the show in a great way.”
While Marnò won’t restore The Blacklist this fall, Spader, Megan Boone, Diego Klatenhoff and Harry Lennix have marked on for Season 7. The show was gotten for one more year sooner this month after series maker Sony Pictures TV achieved new contracts with Boone, Klatenhoff and Lennix.
Outside of The Blacklist, Marnò’s different credits incorporate A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, The Mentalist and House of Cards.
