Dax Shepard Almost Turned Down His Notable Role in Parenthood Due to a Very Special Reason
In an exclusive interview, Dax Shepard revealed that he almost turned down his role in Parenthood for a very special reason. When asked what compelled him to consider such a decision, the renowned actor replied that it was because he didn’t think that a long-distance relationship with his beloved, Kristen Bell, would work out back then.
Most fans know Shepard for his notable role as Crosby Braverman in the hit NBC Series Parenthood that aired between 2010-2015. However, the renowned actor revealed he nearly backed out and rejected the role. The reason? It’s because he feared his budding relationship with Bell back then would end if he moved to Philadelphia while shooting for the TV series. Shepard said if he had to choose between his career and love, he would pick Bell. Aww!
He confessed that it was that moment when he realized that he really loved Bell. He recalled how ecstatic he was after being offered a role in Parenthood. Shepard considered it a blessing since, at the time, it could have potentially become his first big break after several underwhelming projects. The actor was eager to accept the role, but that was until he discovered that the shooting would take place in Philadelphia. The renowned actor now faced a serious dilemma that forced him to choose between Bell and his career. He thought that there was no way that he could continue his relationship with Kristen while leaving her to move to Philadelphia for a few months
Blessing in Disguise
After much contemplation, Shepard decided to turn down the offer and choose to stay with his then-girlfriend instead. He was literally on the verge of giving his final decision to the producers when Bell stopped him. She convinced him to take the project because turning it down would leave him with immense regret for the rest of his life. Bell told him to prioritize his job over the relationship and if they were really meant to be together, they would find a way to make long distance work.
After Bell convinced him, Shepard started to open up his mind on the possibility of staying in Philadelphia. He soon found himself getting excited over it as the actor couldn’t help exploring the place and meet new friends along the way. However, he didn’t get to do it though since the film canceled its shooting in Philadelphia and changed it to California instead.
The Happy Ending
Shepard revealed he was happy that Bell called him out before he gave his decision to the management. If it weren’t for her, he would’ve ended up rejecting the offer, and he would’ve regretted it for the rest of his life. Now, Shepard isn’t only enjoying his soaring career after his appearance in Parenthood, but he’s also happy and in love with Bell while raising their two beautiful daughters together.
