The Emmy-winning actor previously became a household name in Canada for her stint in the sketch comedy series Second City Television, where she first acted alongside Schitt's Creek co-creator and co-star Eugene Levy. O'Hara credits the show for igniting something in her, recalling in a 2008 Playback interview, "Once I saw the Second City show I thought, 'Oh my Lord, that is what I want to do! This is what I am meant to do. Please let me in.'" In that same interview, the star also mentioned that she didn't like working on television and avoided sitcoms: "I have shied away from TV because of its long-term commitment ... especially the sitcoms I have been offered." At the time, O'Hara prioritized raising her sons, but it seems as if she finally found a tailor-made TV role as Moira Rose in the hilarious multi-award-winning Schitt's Creek.
