Arrested Development only ran for three seasons, so a casting change seems kind of quick. The story didn't have time to develop, and actors didn't really have the chance to move on to other projects. That's what makes this replacement so off-putting. Not only was Marta replaced in the short-lived show, but it happened in one season. Leonor Varela represented the gorgeous Columbian soap actress for two episodes while Patricia Velasquez took on the character for five episodes.
