[ # ] Emily VanCamp reveals why she left The Resident
October 6th, 2021 under Emily VanCamp

Shortly before The Resident came back this season, we found out that Emily VanCamp would not be returning to the show. On yesterday’s phenomenal episode, we learned how the medical drama said goodbye to her character.

VanCamp explained to Deadline that she did not leave the show because of bad blood. In fact, she loved working on the series.

So why did she leave? She told the site, “I spent so many years on network television, but then suddenly priorities shifted. I think there comes a moment in every woman’s life—in every person’s life—where it becomes less about work and more about family, and that’s what happened while I was making the show. Doing that many episodes in a different city and then you add Covid to that, most of us couldn’t see our families for almost a year. It really solidified for me that family is where my heart is at the moment.”

Back in August, she welcomed her first child with her husband, Josh Bowman. So being away from her family in Canada to film in Atlanta was not something she wanted to do. Therefore, after many years of putting acting first with Everwood, Brothers & Sisters, Revenge, and The Resident, she decided to put family first. Good for her.

Back to her baby, Iris, I wonder if the producers played Goo Goo Dolls’ Iris as they wheeled Nic to operating room to donate her organs as a tribute to her daughter?

When it comes to that scene, VanCamp was not there. That, as she said, was “movie magic.”
