It's no secret that Dan Levy's charisma is off the charts, so we can't blame you for wanting to find out more about him! His creativity has taken him well beyond the script and set of Schitt’s Creek. Here is the untold truth of Dan Levy.
Dan Levy comes from what could easily be described as comedic royalty. His father — and Schitt's Creek co-creator and co-star — Eugene Levy is a comedic legend, having starred in films like Best in Show, Waiting for Guffman, and American Pie. Nevertheless, Dan Levy had to work pretty hard to make a name for himself.
In an interview with the SAG-AFTRA Foundation, Levy explained how he'd initially avoided working with his famous father:
"For a long time I avoided any kind of association with him because I feel like this industry is incredibly unforgiving when it comes to just the blanket labeling of nepotism."
Instead, Levy worked hard to forge his own path.
Levy ended up getting a hosting job on MTV's The Hills. As he explained to Variety, this job helped him establish himself outside of his family, saying:
"It was amazing for me, just in terms of the freedoms it afforded me, and the confidence I was given. Not just as a host, but as someone who was trying to make a name for myself outside of my dad."
