Victoria Principal says no to Pam Ewing ‘Dallas’ return, ‘Leave the legacy intact’

“Since the inception of Dallas, the creators and fans around the world have referred to Bobby (Patrick Duffy) and Pam as the Romeo & Juliet of Dallas – I could not agree more,” the statement reads.

“And since the original author of this scenario, William Shakespeare, felt compelled to make theirs a tragic love story, of epic and unforgettable deathly loss, I think I shall respect that very successful example, and leave the legacy of Bobby & Pam’s tragic love story, undisturbed and intact.”

Principal last appeared on Dallas in 1987, with her character being caught in an explosive car crash in season ten finale ‘Fall of the House of Ewing’.

“When I filmed Pam’s fatal car accident, for me that was the punctuation mark on my role as Pam,” she explained. “I cannot be held responsible for any choices made by producers once I left Dallas, but I do take responsibility for my decision, not to risk tarnishing Bobby & Pam’s love story, with a desperate reappearance.

“I made this decision a long time ago with a loving and respectful heart for Dallas, Bobby & Pam and all faithful fans.”

Pam Ewing was one of several characters rumored to be returning to Dallas for the funeral of character JR Ewing a storyline necessitated by the real-life passing of actor Larry Hagman.
