Christopher Abbott Abruptly Leaves Girls

Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes


Charlie and Marnie are over — again.

Christopher Abbott, who plays Charlie on HBO’s “Girls,” has abruptly left the show.

The actor’s rep tells the New York Post, “[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 paper says Abbott butted heads with Dunham about the show’s direction.

His departure comes as a shock as his character reconciled with Allison Williams’ Marnie on the season two finale.

Gossip Cop has reached out to reps for Abbott and Dunham for more details.
