Dan Levy Opens Up On Managing His Anxiety While Making ‘Schitt’s Creek’ So Joyful
Dan Levy says that while Schitt's Creek was being made, his fear got so bad that he sometimes needed a ruff
Schitt's Creek is such a fun, cute and joyful show and has been a balm to so many people that we all celebrated together during the darkest moments of the pandemic. Such an easy and cheering show seems to have been a constant delight, but for creator, star, writer, producer, and showrunner Dan Levy, he actually needed a ruff at times to cope with the stress of doing the lover Canadian sitcom.
In an interview with Bustle, Dan describes a typical day at Schitt's Creek as starting at 5 a.m. and ending at 2 a.m. when Dan wrote and acted in scenes, approved budgets and costumes, and oversaw the editing and room of the writer. Although he loved the job, Bustle describes how his fear would get so bad that his "neck would become stuck and force him to wear braces".
So much of his adult life was spent with Schitt's Creek that Dan joked that “for the past six years. I really wasn't out that much ”and to make the show enjoyable and“ easy ”he had to - jokingly -“ suppress ”his anger and anger.
"Although [Schitt's Creek] has been intense and I sometimes need a ruff," added Dan Bustle. "It was never uninspiring and it was never not unexciting and exciting and absolutely satisfying." Dan later joked on Twitter that he should "expect a high therapy bill" from the Bustle journalist.
Dan actually mentioned that he would need a neck brace for fear on a panel over a year ago and everyone thought he was kidding. When asked what it was like to be his father Eugene Levy's boss, Dan said, “I sleep with a ruff on. I wish i had fun. "
Dan, who says he was naturally socially concerned as a kid, which he says "came out of a deep-rooted fear of knowing that I was gay and couldn't be free," says Schitt's Creek is not his now the more consumed life he says he wants to focus more on dating.
“I would love to go out more,” says Dan, “... when you do something that you love, it's like, 'I have a full plate. 'So, to make room for someone else ... in a way, it's the ultimate filter. You are basically saying, do I want to work out the space in an already full and fulfilling life for this person? And often the answer is no. But it only makes it so much better when the right person comes. "
The fact that this man had to endure both physical and emotional pain to create this show we all love so much, while keeping the most flying eyebrows I've ever seen, makes me love Schitt's Creek so much more. Bless this man.
