Dressed casually in sporty slacks and a sweater, her short-cropped hair blown attractively askance after a full morning of errands. Rue Kiies on to explain that she differs in another way from some of her Tandem cohorts. She has naught but reverence for Norman Lear, producer of the various shows and resi- dent caretaker of the acting brood. Dissension Exaggerated "I feel a lot of the talk about dissension within the organization is Rue opines. "Most of us have nothing but admiration for Norman. We're fond and appreciative of him. To give you an example: I worked all last year without signing a contract. I never felt insecure about it because I trust Xor- man." She trusted him enough to give up her New York base and move West for It meant a new home, new friends and a new school for her 16-year-old son, Mark. "I told Norman from the start that I wasn't wild about leaving New York but I did want to work with him." Others hadn't felt similarly disposed. Actress Sada Thompson had originally been cast in Rue's role. But before production ever started, Miss Thompson opted to stay in the East and turn down the series. "When I first talked with Norman about the show, he warned me that some people didn't like living out here." recalls Rue. "But I fell in love with the place two seconds aft- er I stepped foot off the plane."
