“I think I vastly underestimated how much of an outcry would be made. “
Morgan York quit acting over a decade ago, and now she’s finally explaining why.
The former actor, who you might recognize as Sarah from Hannah Montana or his role in Cheaper by the dozen, took a step back from the spotlight after the end of the Disney Channel series.
On his TikTok account, Morgan explained that when Hannah Montana wrapped up, she realized that playing wasn’t fun anymore.
“I started playing at the age of nine and from the start my mom said to me, ‘The second it doesn’t get fun or you want to quit, you can quit,’” Morgan explained. .
She added, “I never expected it to be a thing for life. I even remember, as a kid, trying to imagine myself as an adult actor and not seeing him. I saw myself stop playing at least when I started college and then just never come back. ”
“It wasn’t fun anymore. My passion for the theater didn’t outweigh all the costs, like all the time you have to spend away from loved ones on sets and the constant control of the people watching you, ”Morgan continued.
Morgan noted that she had also “vastly underestimated” the “outcry” she would face when she decided to quit acting and had no idea people would actually want to know why she quit.
Leaving it acting behind, Morgan was able to pursue her favorite passion for writing fiction – and she is already working on her seventh fantasy novel.
As to whether or not she stays in touch with her former co-stars, Morgan says she hasn’t told any of them since 2010, but she really doesn’t mind.
For now, Morgan is concentrating on his work in a publishing house and having his own works published. You can read a sample of his books here!
