‘Shameless’ Star Emma Kenney Addresses Emmy Rossum’s Exit From Showtime Series – Deadline

Kenney, now 22, discussed her experience on the recently-wrapped Showtime series on the popular Call Her Daddy podcast today, including her interactions with co-star Emmy Rossum.

” Growing up I took note of– not just from her in particular– things I wish to continue my life and things I do not wish to continue.”

Asked if she seemed like she was residing in Rossums shadow on the show Kenney replied, “I felt that dynamic for sure and I never understood it. I was 9 and she was over 10 years older than me, so Im like, Why is there an unusual competitors here when Im not trying to compete? I do not understand if it was other individuals on set developing that, or if it was her developing it, however I understand I wasnt producing it.”

” I remember pre-her leaving, I d go to set some days and I d be very distressed about having a scene with her due to the fact that if she had a bad day, she made it a bad day for everyone.”

There were times where she would try to be an excellent impact and then there were times where she would be blatantly providing me … not the finest recommendations,” Kenney stated. “Maybe she was having a hard time with her own inner issues and taking it out on other people.

“We 100% felt like a household, and we still do,” said Emma Kenney of her fellow Outrageous cast members. “We had such a bonding experience.”

And like a household, she states, relationships amongst the stars were complicated.

” I have a lot of love for Emmy, Ive known her for so long. We have not spoken in years … but thats alright,” she said. “I have a great deal of love for her, and I hope that she discovers her joy.”

Kenney said her relationship with Rossum, who played her sis on the show, felt like a siblingship “in good and bad ways.

There were times where she would try to be a good influence and then there were times where she would be blatantly offering me … not the finest guidance,” Kenney stated. Asked if she felt like she was living in Rossums shadow on the show Kenney replied, “I felt that vibrant for sure and I never comprehended it. We have not spoken in years … but thats alright,” she said.

When it comes to where their relationship stands now, Kenny says they are not in touch.

Rossum left the show in 2018 and Kenny said after she left “the set became a little bit more of a positive place.
