He Didn’t Have To Wait Long To Get His Big Break
It is rare for an actor to get their start with a starring role that immediately catapults them to the forefront of their field. Bruce Willis didn’t have to wait very long to get his big break because he had a recurring role in the television series ‘Moonlighting,’ which ran from 1985 to 1989 and was extremely popular with viewers. Although it may have helped put his name in more people’s minds, it gives the impression that things were not as straightforward as they seemed behind the scenes.
Cybill Shepherd, who was also a star on the show, later admitted that there was a lot of tension when the cameras weren’t rolling. She was the other star of the show. The actress stated in an interview with Entertainment Tonight in 2005 that it was a “very volatile show” that had so many disagreements that she and Bruce “just hated each other” by the end of their time working together on the show.
