When actors sign contracts to perform in television shows, they are unsure if the shows will be successful. Many are lucky and have hit shows. But eventually, actors want to advance to other projects, and they leave the show. These five actors regretted their decision, knowing they never should have left their popular show.

Katherine Heigl In “Grey’s Anatomy”

Katherine Heigl left Grey’s Anatomy, the show that made her famous, in 2010 to focus on her film career. While working on the medical drama, Heigl gained her now-famous Hollywood reputation of being “difficult” on set. Since she left the hit show, Heigl’s career has been inconsistent. Because of this, Heigl would love to return to the show. She said, “I want them to know that I’m down with it if they want me to.”
