Kiefer Sutherland has revealed that he struggled to find work after 24 ended.
The actor, who now stars in the new drama series Touch, claimed that he was “surprised” by the lack of offers he received.
“I didn’t [have a lot of choice] actually,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “I was quite surprised by that.”
The 45-year-old star went on to say that he “hadn’t planned” on returning to television just two years after 24 wrapped.
“24 was an amazing experience,” he said. “[But] I hadn’t planned on doing another show as quickly as I did. 24 was the first time I had a real job. It was the first time in my life where every three months I wasn’t panicked to death about how I was going to feed my kids.”
