Christopher Abbott (aka Marni's boyfriend) quits 'Girls'
Christopher Abbott, better known as the actor who plays Marni’s boyfriend Charlie in Girls, is leaving the show.
The actor is reported to have left the third series of the hit HBO drama after clashing with writer and co-star Lena Dunham.
“They’ve just started work on season three and Chris is at odds with Lena. He didn’t like the direction things are going in, which seems a bit odd since the show put him on the map,” a source told the New York Post.
Things were just getting good again for Abbott’s character Charlie at the end of season two when he got back together with former girlfriend Marni, but it looks like their on-off relationship will now be off again.
Abbott’s agent confirmed the departure, saying: “[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.”
Abbott recently appeared in indie movie Burma and is due to star in forthcoming film The Sleepwalker, currently in post-production.
Series three of Girls is currently being filmed, and a release date is yet to be set by HBO.
