Quite a trip. Chrishell Stause was only introduced to the world as an actress in 2005, two years after graduating with a bachelor’s degree in acting, but she had already come a long way.

after his family struggling with money and, at times, homeless, Stause had his big break All my children. She has since taken on many different careers – and admitted that it’s not always easy to start fresh.

[When you start new,] it reminds you of how we come back into this,” she said We Weekly exclusively in September 2020 in competition on Dancing with the stars season 29. “What makes you successful is that you go through those times and [this] it just reminds me of that. In those tough times when you just want to sit in your tulle and say “this sucks”. That’s not how I got to where I am! I came here because I felt it and managed to overcome it.
She continued: “The most important thing I’ve learned is that I didn’t lose that. It’s something you go through very early in your career and go through again and again. At this point, it’s the third time in my life of a career moment where you’re like, ‘Oh, I don’t know anything. I start again. I did it with theater, I did it with real estate and now I’m doing it with dance. So it’s like, ‘OK. I know nothing. I feel like a failure, but let me go all the way and try to succeed.
