Paz de la Huerta has reported been axed from the HBO show Boardwalk Empire.

Insiders are reporting that De la Huerta’s contract has not been renewed for the mob hit’s third season.

The actress was introduced in Season 1 as Nucky’s (played by Steve Buscemi) mistress, Lucy Danzinger. In the shows second season, Lucy is pregnant with a child that is not Nucky’s. She winds up living with the baby’s father Van Alden (Michael Shannon). After heading to the grocery store, leaving the baby with Van Alden, she disappears.

With her exit from the show, De la Huerta becomes the fourth member of the cast not returning for the third season.

It is unclear why HBO will not be bringing her back, though her very public drunken antics could not have made them very happy.

However, not returning in the upcoming season does not rule out her return in the following seasons.

Boardwalk Empire tells the story of Enoch “Nucky” Johnson, the real-life criminal kingpin of Atlantic City, New Jersey and in the Prohibition Era of the 1920s and 30s.
