Christopher Abbott has left Girls.
The actor, who played Marnie's on-again/off-again boyfriend Charlie for two seasons - and who was most definitely on again with the beauty to close Girls Season 2 - has reportedly departed the HBO series due to differences with creator Lena Dunham.
“[Chris] is grateful for the experience of collaborating with Lena, Judd [Apatow], and the entire Girls cast and crew, but right now he’s working on numerous other projects and has decided not to return to the show,” the actor’s rep told The New York Post.
The fallout took place during production of Season 3, the newspaper reports, with a source on set saying Abbott didn't like the "direction" of his character.
It's unclear at this time just how Charlie will be written out.
