The Duchess spoilers follow. Katherine Ryan has revealed that her new Netflix show The Duchess could have ended very differently. The Canadian comic stars in the new series as single mum Katherine Ryan — not actually based on her real life – considering the major life change of having a baby with her young daughter's estranged dad. When Digital Spy and other media recently chatted with Katherine about the series, she revealed that there were some key moments left on the cutting room floor. "Bev had a few specific scenes and things [that were scrapped] – She had a nightmare at that fashion magazine live event," she revealed.
"Her stitches popped from her bum enlargement. She started bleeding out, so it became not very body-positive at all, because she was outed for having plastic surgery. We cut that out. "I think I wrestled with the ending a lot. I had three different endings. I wasn't sure how that was going to go. But I'm very satisfied with the way we settled on wrapping it up, because she's dancing on her own, and that song was really important to me, too, that Robyn song. "The ending is always the hardest part, I think, and I left a very satisfying ending for me. But I think a lot of people will have wished for a different ending – maybe a fairy-tale ending. But they're not going to get it!" Netflix Ryan also revealed to us that the three possible endings were all foreshadowed throughout the series. "Well, it's sort of the way that Katherine's story begins," she said. "How will she expand her family? What shape will it take? Will she have another baby with her enemy? Will she move on and try to have a relationship with this current boyfriend? Or will she use a sperm donor? "So there were different endings like that. And also an ending where… you actually, in real life, don't get a baby that easily at all. So, yeah – without any spoilers, it was the same endings as were laid out as options in the beginning of her journey. I didn't want to commit to one ending. Why should we commit to one ending?"
