In conversation with Icelandair, Anita said, "My daughter was five at the time and the idea of her being able to grow up close to her family was important."

Anita further stated that it didn't matter if she hadn't achieved her professional goals in Los Angeles or reached the heights she wanted; at the end of the day, what was best for her daughter was more important than anything else. 

This made her pack up her bags, take her husband Dave and her daughter Miu and leave the country back to her hometown of Reykjavik.  

How Did Anita Briem's Husband Respond?

In an interview with Visir, Anita revealed that she had a hard time telling her husband, Dean Paraskevopoulos, that she wanted to move back to Iceland, especially because they were building a villa in Los Angeles. 

"I want to be here, I want my child to grow up here and go to school here." Aníta added, "I was very anxious to have this conversation, but then it vomited out of me." 

She stated that the discussion with her husband lasted for several days, leading to her crying for an hour and a half in a cemetery in Reykjavik.
