Grant Gustin opened up about opportunities he’s missed because of his commitment to The CW’s The Flash.

Over the past six years, Grant Gustin has entertained viewers as the lead actor of The CW’s The Flash. Of course, with the production of a given season taking place over most of the year, the series has been a huge commitment for the actor.

During an interview on Inside of You with Michael Rosenbaum, Grant Gustin commented on how fortunate he is to have the role of The Flash. However, the actor also noted that he’s missed out on other acting opportunities due to the filming schedule of The CW series:

“I’m very aware, especially in certain moments, of how lucky I am and how differently things could have gone up until this point, but you know I also, like, when it comes to my career or life, there’s plenty of things that I feel like I’ve missed out on. During The Flash, it’s been so amazing but we’re, what, seven years in now or six, we’ve finished six years… the past four hiatuses now I’ve had a hiatus project that has fallen through because of Flash so I feel like there’s a lot of other opportunities out there, film and stage, that have gone away because of schedule conflicts so you just can’t have everything.”

Grant Gustin did add that he has no regrets, saying, “I would never trade off where I’m at right now to be somewhere else in my life or in my career.”

The Flash continues tonight with the episode titled “Liberation” and you can read the official synopsis below:

HUGE CHANGES AHEAD FOR BARRY AND IRIS – After recent events, Barry (Grant Gustin) takes a closer look at his life with Iris (Candice Patton). Eva (guest star Efrat Dor) makes a bold move. Jeff Byrd directed the episode written by Jonathan Butler & Gabriel Garza (#617).
