Girls Star Christopher Abbott Quits Show

Girls just won’t be the same next series. Our current crush Christopher Abbott has quit the show today ahead of the third season in a move which has shocked and disappointed the LOOK magazine office. 

The star, who plays Marnie’s boyfriend Charlie on the hit HBO series issued a statement about his decision via his rep to The Hollywood Reporter.

It reads: “[Chris] is grateful for the experience of collaborating with Lena [Dunham], 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 season two finale saw Charlie confess his love to Marnie, played by Allison Williams, in a romantic scene which left us all blubbing. Lena will now have to find a way to write him out of the show, which means plenty more heartbreak is on the way for poor Marnie. 

While we’ll miss his gorgeous beardy face, we can’t wait to see what he works on next… good luck, Chris!
