The 36-year-old American actress is one of several celebrities who made their mark on the catwalk for the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Red Dress Collection during New York Fashion Week.
Garrett spoke to Fox News about the childhood tragedy that inspired her to raise awareness, why she’s not returning to “The Good Doctor” and how she’s giving back to those in need.
Fox News: It was reported in late 2018 you won’t be returning to “The Good Doctor.” Why not?
Beau Garrett: It really is bittersweet. This is such a crazy career that [we] artists choose. It never goes the way you plan. I really enjoyed working on “The Good Doctor.” They’re just wonderful people. It just felt like the right time to exit.
I have a different story to tell in my future as an actress. And it’s one where I had to take the time and move on. But I love them all. And it is bittersweet. I miss them. I was in Vancouver for almost five years shooting “A Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce” and “The Good Doctor.” So there is really a part of me that will stay there. Vancouver has really become a special place for me. And the family I created there. But you know, we all have to move on eventually, and hopefully, the next career move will be just as gratifying.
