talking to the The Hollywood Reporter, Theron admitted to being devastated by the news:
“That was hard to digest Listen, I totally respect the George and even more after having made the film with him. He is a master and I wish him nothing less than the best. But yeah, it’s a little heartbreaking for sure. I was devastated. I really love this character and am so grateful that I played a small part in creating her. She will always be someone I think about and think about with affection. Obviously I would love to see this story continue and if he feels that this is the way he has to go I trust him in that regard. We’re so preoccupied with the little details that we forget that what we’re emotionally involved in has nothing to do with the work we’re focusing on.”
In an interview with The New York Times, Miller had revealed that originally the idea was to bring Theron back as Furious through facial rejuvenation technology, but eventually decided to cast a new actress.
