How Did Alexandra Krosney Begin Her Acting Career?

Born on January 28, 1988, in Los Angeles, California, Alexandra first nursed desires to be an actress as a child, a passion which eventually became reality, thanks to her amazing work ethics, talent, and devotion.

In 2002, Krosney made her acting debut in the TV show titled The Grubbs. Despite filming 5 episodes, the series was canceled before it even aired, thus denying Krosney a chance to reveal her talent to the world. Choosing not to be dismayed by such minor setback, she continued working hard, and later that year, she appeared on an episode of Without a Trace, playing the character of Young Lianna Sardo.

The following year, she starred in several episodes of Family Affair, but it wasn’t until 2004 that her career received a massive boost following her role as Trina on the hit Medical Drama TV series ER. Due to her impeccable acting on ER, Alexandra Krosney would go on to play several roles in other top TV shows such as NCIS, Bones, Cory in the House, Lost, Nikita, and Transformer Prime, amongst several others.

Her big break eventually came in the year 2011 when Krosney was cast to play the role of Kristen Baxter in the Jack Burditt created American Sitcom Last Man Standing. The series, which became an instant hit on release, was pivotal to Krosney’s career as it elevated her to a level of stardom she never knew existed.

The Real Reason She Was Axed From The Last Man Standing

Alexandra Krosney was replaced due to “creative differences,” according to Distractify. According to reports available, Alexandra was replaced because ABC favored Amanda Fuller more than Alexandra

The show creators seemed to favor and prefer Amanda Fuller for the role. It was stated that the age difference between them (Amanda is older) played a part in the re-casting.

The major advantage which TV shows hold over normal movies is in the area of flexibility. This, however, is due to the tendency of TV shows to span for a longer period, thereby making it possible for writers and producers to pull a major twist in the story at any point in time, all to the delight of its audience. That being said, one thing no audience wants is for his/her favorite character to be replaced, especially for reasons that sound very unconvincing.

The revelation by ABC on June 11, 2012, that Krosney would be replaced by Amanda Fuller in season 2 of The Last Man Standing was met by widespread criticism because she was loved by fans for perfectly depicting the character Kristen Baxter.

In a bid to quell fans’ anger, the network went on to reveal that the move was vital, as they felt the role was better suited for someone much older than Alexandra Krosney.
