Dan Levy Reveals He Wore a Neck Brace While Filming The Final Season of 'Schitt's Creek'

Dan Levy is opening up about how much stress he was under during the final season of Schitt’s Creek.

In his cover story with British GQ, the 38-year-old actor shared that he had been struggling with anxiety as the show got bigger and bigger – to the point where he was wearing a neck brace.

Dan said that there was so much stress at one point that he was wearing a neck brace.

“Because the anxiety in my neck was so bad I couldn’t move it,” he says. “At one point there was an acupuncturist and a chiropractor coming to set every day at lunch to work on my neck so that I could actually perform and not, you know, look like I needed a neck brace.”

The final season of the show premiered in October last year, and wrapped up just a few months ago.

Now, Dan is working on writing a gay romantic comedy.

“I’ve always wanted to make [a romcom]. I’ve always wanted to be in one,” he says. “And as a gay person, you don’t ever get that kind of opportunity.”

Dan adds, “You get to play the zany friend or Pepe the coworker. So I’m really excited and honored to have that opportunity: to put a gay person front and center in a romcom.”

In the meantime, Dan has reportedly been bribed to write a Schitt’s Creek movie. Find out by who!
