Why Emily VanCamp left The Resident?
Firstly, it was Shaunette Renée Wilson, played surgeon Mina Okafor, who left the drama midway through Season 4. Secondly, Morris Chestnut will appear less frequently in Season 5 after joining the Fox family drama, Our Kind of People. Lastly, it was Emily in 2021. The 35-year-old actress ended her journey as a nurse practitioner Nic Nevin after the fourth season. She officially announced her departure before her husband Josh Bowman, a fellow Revenge co-star, welcomed their baby girl Iris on August 2021.
Emily was also a part of the Marvel series, The Falcon And Winter Soldier. Emily told PEOPLE in an interview that the COVID-19 lockdown gave her a breather from both the works. She added, ” I was doing The Falcon and Winter Soldier and The Resident, sort of burning the candle at both ends, So the beginning was very welcome.” She also said that she enjoyed the company of her husband, and it was something that she didn’t have for a long time.
Peter Elkoff, a co-star of the show, indicated Emily’s departure before it became official. There were efforts to bring back Emily into the show, but something didn’t work out. She might want to spend more time with her new family, that’s why she left the show. Or there might have been a dispute between the actress and the Fox Officials. The reports are not yet clear why she left the series. So, it is better not to jump to any further conclusions.
