After six incomparable seasons, 'Schitt's Creek' came to an end in 2020. 

 The Emmy-winning award show `Schitt`s Creek` has helped actor Emily Hampshire figure out her identity.

In a conversation with singer Demi Lovato on her podcast show, Emily opened up about how `Schitt`s Creek` made her pansexual, reported The Hollywood Reporter.

"(David Rose) says, ultimately he likes the wine, not the label and that he`s pansexual. I had never heard the word pansexual before. I`ve always considered myself super knowledgeable about LGBTQ+ stuff just because everybody in my life, my friends, are all mostly LGBTQ+ people, but I didn`t know this," she said while giving reference to a scene on the show where her character and Dan Levy`s character of David Rose explain their sexuality through their wine preferences.

Recalling her conversation with Dan, she added, "Cut to about five years later. I was dating someone and I saw on these message boards people being like, `Is Stevie a lesbian?` `Is Emily gay?` `Who`s Emily?` I said to Dan, I was like, `This is so weird. What am I?` Because I truly just fell in love with a person and where they were on the gender spectrum did not matter to me. And since then it really doesn`t matter to me. I have to like the person. I`m really attracted to a person`s vibe."
