Mia Farrow replaced Jane Alexander, who had replaced Dianne Wiest. Dianne Wiest was originally going to play the character of Hope, but withdrew from the part, due to illness. Wiest has five cinema movie collaborations with Woody Allen. In two of them, Wiest won a Best Actress in a Supporting Role Academy Award. Wiest appeared in both of Allen's then previous year's movies, September (1987) and Radio Days (1987). In the end, Mia Farrow was cast in the role, after Jane Alexander's characterization didn't work out.
