Steve Burns Confirms Why He Left ‘Blue’s Clues’
After years of rumors, Steve Burns has finally confirmed why he left the once-popular show, Blue’s Clues, in an interview with HuffPost.
The actor didn’t die and he didn’t become a musician. In fact, Burns says he left the show, which he starred in for about seven-years, due to the show going in a different direction and because he was getting older.
“I left the show because it was just simply time to go. I was pretty much playing a boyish, older-brotherish kind of character on the show. I was getting older; I was losing my hair; a lot of the original gangsters on the show, like the people who created it, were all moving on to other careers. It just felt like time. I just had a gut feeling like it was time to go,” said Burns.
Music was not the reason for his departure, but Burns is indeed making music these days. He is i the midst of releasing a new kids album, Foreverywhere, along with his friend Steven Drozd of the Flaming Lips.
