Connie Rekar, Wildwood, Ill.
Krosney, 22, who played the oldest daughter in Tim Allen’s on-screen family in the first season of ABC’s Last Man Standing, was dropped from the sitcom over the summer because of “creative reasons.” Amanda Fuller stepped into her place. (This wasn’t the only cast change between seasons: Jordan Masterson took over the recurring role of a young father who had been played by pop star Nick Jonas.) When the new season of Last Man Standing premiered last month, Krosney got a lot of good wishes from her fans on Twitter, which led her to respond: “I feel so blessed to have received so much support from you all. I truly can’t thank you enough, but I’ll keep trying.”
