“Schitt’s Creek” Star Catherine O’Hara Took Moira’s Wigs From Set After The Show Ended
The matriarch of the Rose family is known for her quirky personality and love for dressing up. After all, she is a former soap opera actress who spends the duration of the series getting back on her feet after the family loses their fortune and fame. To keep her character alive, Schitt's Creek's Catherine O'Hara took Moira Rose's wigs after the series finale.
The show premiered in 2015 and will come to a close when the final episode of season six airs in April.
In an interview with Us Weekly at the Costume Designers Guild Awards earlier this week, O'Hara was asked about what she'll miss most from the show.
“Oh everything. Just being with everyone every day and getting to play Eugene [Levy]‘s wife and those lovely kids’ mother.” She told Us Weekly, “[I took] the wigs and some clothes.”
The publication also claimed that she only took a few wigs and joked that "she didn’t have 'the storage' space to hang them as delicately as her character did."
In fact, in an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon earlier this month, O'Hara revealed that it was her idea for her character to wear wigs.
She told Fallon, "I have e-mails to prove that it was mine to wear them but then it takes a lovely producer team to allow you that freedom."
The father-son duo Eugene and Dan Levy served as creators, stars, and executive producers of the CBC sitcom.
O'Hara and Eugene's friendship goes backto when they both starred on SCTV in the '70s together.
The 65-year-old actress is also best known for her role in Beetlejuice, and for playing Kate McCallister in Home Alone. She told People, "I’ve met a lot of Kevins over the years who ask me to yell their name at their faces."
But since the comedy series blew up recently, O'Hara said to People that “Now it’s mostly Schitt’s Creek. It’s amazing."
Her six-year tenure as Moira Rose is iconic and she also told People, “I personally wouldn’t want to try and top this experience right away. No. Work here and there and be at home in between.”
On her IMDb page, O'Hara has two upcoming roles that are both animations.
