Taraji P. Henson explains her shocking Person of Interest exit: "It was the most money I’d ever seen in my life, and I was so miserable"

Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo's revelation that she almost quit the ABC drama because it was a "disaster" and "toxic" behind the scenes wasn't the only news from her Variety chat with Empire star Henson. Henson also revealed that she once left a TV series because of her unhappiness. “I had to leave a show before, and it was the most money I’d ever seen in my life, and I was so miserable," says Henson. "It was stealing my joy. I just remember praying to God: ‘God, I’m not happy creatively.’ (The) next day, I called the producer. He got it. And I walked away, not even knowing where I was going. I ended up doing a play in Pasadena.” Henson didn't mention the show's name, but as TVLine points out that she abruptly and shockingly left Person of Interest in 2013 and joined a Pasadena Playhouse play two weeks later.
