Schitt’s Creek’s Dan Levy—he’s just like us. His dog is his “best friend,” he never quite nailed the hat trend, and he’s got a therapist helping him keep it all together.
The Emmy-nominated writer, co-creator, and star of PopTV’s Schitt’s Creek welcomed Vogue into his cozy Los Angeles home for the latest installment of the magazine’s 73 Questions series. With his pup Redmond at his side, Levy answered some rapid-fire inquiries about writing, show-running, and starring in a queer-inclusive hit sitcom, working closely alongside his father (Eugene Levy, a.k.a. Rose family patriarch Johnny Rose), and scoring an MTV Movie Award.
When asked how he manages to wear so many (figurative) hats and stay sane, Dan was quick to quip, “You might want to ask my therapist.” He laughed and added, “When you do something that you’re passionate about, that you love, it just comes quite easily.”
The 36-year-old actor also got a little misty-eyed when the subject of David Rose’s queer storyline on Schitt’s Creek came up.
Asked about the most surprising response he’s received to David being proudly pansexual, Dan said it was “probably the letters that we’ve received from people who have told us that the show has changed their relationships with their family and friends for the better, and made them more confident people. It’s amazing.”
Fans of the show know Dan and his Schitt’s Creek co-stars are gearing up to say goodbye to the eponymous fictional town. The show’s sixth and final season is slated to premiere in the U.S. on Tuesday, January 7, 2019, at 9/8c on Pop TV.
