Christopher Abbott Exits Girls, Differences with Lena Dunham Cited for Departure

by at . Comments

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.

Charlie and Marnie

“[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.

Girls Quotes

I just want someone who wants to hang out all the time, thinks I'm the best person in the world, and wants to have sex with only me.

Hannah

Marnie: I want you. I know I'm a mess, but I want you. I want to see you every morning. I want to make you a snack every night. And I eventually want to have your little brown babies and eventually I want to watch you die.
Charlie: That's all I wanted to hear.
Marnie: Is it?
Charlie: I love you. Maybe I'm an idiot for it. But I always have. Everything good that I try and do I do because of you and I try and get away but I just keep coming back. And that's because I love you.
