William H. Macy, Emmy Rossum’s on-screen dad in the popular series, Shameless, revealed that he always stands behind his co-star following her announcement that she was leaving.
After nine seasons, Emmy revealed she is departing from the Showtime production. During an interview Macy said he is not surprised of Emmy’s leaving the show and says that she has made a right choice, as confirmed to the Entertainment Weekly.
William also said that ‘we have been expecting it’ for the actress leaving the show decision. According to the legendary performer, it’s hard to imagine what life would be like without the television series, and while it’s exciting, part of that experience is “very frightening.”
The reason behind Emmy’s leaving the show is she has got another opportunity in which she is executive producer, through which her career is going to move ahead. Another reason is she has been married recently.
In a statement released, the actress reminisced on the people she got the chance to grow over the years. The 31-year-old wrote, “being ensconced in that messy Gallagher family love is something I’d always dreamed of.”
A source close to Emmy confirmed that the reason behind leaving the show is career growth, rather than any personal animosity or behind-the-scenes tension.
Emmy has begun the new journey of getting different roles and left with the “utmost appreciation” for the people she worked with, on the big screen.Emmy is also an outspoken advocate for the body positivity movement. Previously, the actress, along with Stephanie Beatriz from Brooklyn-Nine-Nine fame, criticized Kim Kardashian for stating she weighed just 119 pounds, at 5’3″.
