It is with a heavy heart and a soul filled with sadness that I must report Emmy Rossum will be leaving the Showtime series Shameless and the end of the 9th season. I can safely say Emmy Rossum has pretty much been the reason I've tuned into the show time and time again and now that she's going, I don't know if I'm going to be able to keep watching.
Emmy Rossum made the announcement on Facebook, but didn't really state why she was leaving the show. Maybe it was just time, maybe there is an issue we don't know about, or maybe she wants to get nude on another show or in the movies. Here is part of what she said:
"The opportunity to play Fiona has been a gift. There are few characters — female or otherwise — as layered and dynamic. She is a mother lion, fierce, flawed and sexually liberated. She is injured, vulnerable, but will never give up. She is living in an economic depression, but refuses to be depressed. She is resourceful. She is loyal. She is brave. I knew it the second I read the pilot script, this was different, this was special. I know you will continue on without me, for now. There is much more Gallagher story to be told. I will always be rooting for my family. Try not to think of me as gone, just think of me as moving down the block.”
All I can say is I'm heartbroken. I seriously don't know what Shameless will be like when it's Emmy-less. Though, I hope they don't kill her off so if she wants to come back she can. For now, let's just remember all the good times and great nudity.
