Amanda Seyfried decided to quit "Big Love" because she felt the TV show's producers weren't maximizing her potential. The actress shot to fame in 2006 after landing a lead role in the U.S. series as a member of a polygamous Mormon family - but she announced in December 2009 she will be leaving after the fourth season.
And Seyfried admits she made the decision so she can focus on landing more film roles that will allow her to show off her talents. She tells Britain's OK! magazine, "I was frustrated because I wasn't really working that much on it and it was six months of my life."
"My career is going places and I wasn't able to do the things I wanted to," the 24-year-old actress explains. "And I had to live in L.A."
