Kellan was also featured on E! News today, where he talked about overcoming being abandoned as a teen. He stopped to talk to homeless teens today while in Miami. He shared, “When I decided to quit school and become an actor, everyone kind of left me. My mom left me, I was growing up with her and my dad, they divorced when I was younger…I was ground zero for a while and it was tough.” He went on to say “as much as you might have it bad or think you have it bad, it gets better.”
