Why Tim Allen

Left Last
Man Standing
Parents watching their kids leave the home is always emotional, and that’s how Tim Allen felt when his youngest on-screen daughter left the cast of the hit sitcom “Last Man Standing.” The on-screen family’s youngest daughter, Eve, joined the Air Force Academy in Season 6, but Allen confessed he had a hard time watching her leave the nest.
Tim Allen compared Eve’s departure to his eldest daughter leaving home, and he reminisced on an episode of the show and said, “We had to change Eve's room and it reminded me of real life. You know, your kid's not coming back.” He revealed, “It was a really hard one for me to do based on my oldest daughter when she left.”
In the last three seasons of “Last Man Standing,” Eve is pursuing her Air Force career, but she still made a virtual appearance in the finale. The showrunner, Kevin Abbott, said, “Tim [Allen] and Kaitlyn have always had such a special relationship,” which made it even more emotional to see Eve leave her on-screen family.
