During his speech, Dan thanked critics and fans for their endless support of Schitt’s Creek: “Thank you for supporting and championing a character like David,” he said.
“I have so appreciated reading all of your thoughtful and encouraging words over the years and sometimes when you don’t often see yourself represented that much on-screen you have to take a risk and make it happen for yourself. Thank you so much for this, it means the world. Thank you.”
