Lecy Goranson, who played the original Becky on Roseanne, never kept up with the show after she left for good in its penultimate season — and, as a result, she didn't even know that her on-screen father, Dan (John Goodman), died in the series finale.
During a recent interview with HuffPost Live, Goranson was shocked when her former co-star Michael Fishman mentioned that Dan died on the show.

"I'm embarrassed," Goranson admitted during the interview with HuffPost Live. "I'm like, 'He passed away? Oh God, that's horrible!'"
Goranson first left Roseanne in its fifth season to attend college. She was replaced by Sarah Chalke and then returned for the show's eighth season, during which she and Chalke alternated the role. She left for good in the show's ninth season and Chalke finished out Becky's story line.

"At the time, I wanted normalcy," Goranson tells HuffPost Live. "I wanted to be around my peers. I wanted to be in an intellectual environment. ... I would have, like, five English papers due on Monday, and they'd want me to fly to Disney World and shoot a show there over the weekend, and I said, 'I just can't feasibly do this.'"
