5 Actors Who Regretted Leaving Their Hit TV Shows

Published

on

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.”

Chevy Chase And “Saturday Night Live”

Chevy Chase was an original cast member of Saturday Night Live in its first season in 1975. He hosted the famous “Weekend Update” and became an overnight star. After the first season, however, Chase left the cast to pursue a film career. Of course, he appeared in popular films, including Caddyshack and the Vacation movies, but he regretted leaving Saturday Night Live so soon. “I thought this isn’t going anywhere,” Chase said in 2015. Clark Griswold was clearly wrong.

Matt Smith In “Doctor Who”

When Matt Smith was named the 11th Doctor on BBC’s popular sci-fi show, Doctor Who, he was the youngest actor to ever play the part. He brought a youthful, charming energy to the role and helped the show gain new fans. But when Smith left the show in 2013, he quickly regretted the decision. He regularly comments how much he misses the show and how he wishes he never would have left.

McLean Stevenson In “M*A*S*H”

When M*A*S*H premiered in 1972, it became one of the biggest shows in television history. Everyone was thrilled with the show’s success, except McLean Stevenson, who played Lieutenant Colonel Henry Blake. Stevenson was frustrated with the attention paid to the show’s star, Alan Alda, and left the show at the end of the third season. He quickly regretted the decision, stating, “I made the mistake of believing that people were enamored of McLean Stevenson when the person they were enamored of was Henry Blake.”

Michael Learned In “The Waltons”

The Waltons has remained one of the most heartfelt family shows of all time. Michael Learned played the show’s matriarch, Olivia Walton. Learned became successful because of the show, earning three Emmy awards for her performance. Eventually, she left the show due to the long hours, contract negotiations, and her desire to try something new. Learned quickly regretted leaving the family show, wishing she had stayed until the show’s finale.
