, in September 2008, was the first news outlet to report of Rose McGowan joining the cast of Nip/Tuck
. Rose replaced Katee Sackhoff in the role of Theodora "Teddy" Rowe, a doctor and love interest for Sean (Dylan Walsh). The recast came on the heels of news that Sackhoff had a deal to headline NBC's cop pilot Lost and Found
, so the scheduling conflict led her to back out of the Nip/Tuck
gig. The role reunites Rose with her Charmed
co-star Julian McMahon.
Katee Sackhoff played Theodora "Teddy" Rowe in four episodes on the fifth season of the series. During Sackhoff's stint on the show, Sean hired the wild Teddy as a new anesthesiologist. Soon after Teddy started work, Sean found himself drawn to the dark side of life, flirting with her and risking his career. Sean continued to let loose with Teddy, having sex in an open house and getting high on tea made from ayahuasca. On the sixth season, Sean and Teddy get engaged but it's soon realized that Teddy is in fact going after Sean's insurance money and may have planned for Sean, what she did to her previous husband Harlan.
"I had wanted to do a guest stint some years ago, but it never worked out schedule wise. It, as anyone who watches the show knows, is totally bananas. Just off the wall. I'm doing something I hope to never do hope to never do again - replace an actress who's already established a role. It didn't occur to me that it'd be completely unnerving and bizarre until I filmed my first scene. It was still a great experience," explained Rose during her second Q&A with Rose-McGowan.com.
Rose McGowan portrayed Teddy Rowe for five episodes on the sixth season of Nip/Tuck, which kicked off October 14, 2009.
