‘The X-Files,’ as I recall, we didn’t know really what we were until the middle of the first year. You know, so if we’d been cancelled, you get cancelled before you mature into what it is you can actually be, which is too bad.

I’ve been very lucky as an actor. I have worked all the time. Some shows I do, they get cancelled. Some, they’re critically acclaimed, and then they get cancelled. And some, I’m in the last season of this or that. But I can’t complain about my career.

Kate O’Mara
I’ve been on so many primetime shows that were cancelled – after one episode, after 10 episodes, after just one season. I got used to that. But I found myself choking up a bit at ‘OLTL.’ It was really hard to say goodbye to those people. It was not the way we wanted to go out.
Michael Easton
‘V’ had just been cancelled; I was looking for a job, and the ‘Homeland’ script came across my desk. I loved it immediately, although I thought it would end up being discovered gradually – a slow-burner, like ‘The Wire.’

I’ve been in SHINee for 10 years, so starting a new team almost felt like getting a different job. I was excited; it felt so fresh, like a new start. To be honest, I thought the project was going to get cancelled when I first heard about it, so SuperM has a special place in my heart.
Lee Tae-min
The way I see it is, you can be a character on a TV show for years, then the TV show gets cancelled and your favorite actress or favorite comedian, you don’t see them for a little while and then you see them back doing something else. You can still be enjoying them performing on TV.
