Russell Tovey Leaving Being Human
Being Human is to lose another major cast member with Russell Tovey announcing that he too is bidding farewell to the show.
Tovey confirmed the news via his Twitter: “Hey my lovely witty’s, you may or may not know by now, but I am leaving Being Human officially. Thought you should all know… I’m sorry.”
Tovey gave some possible clues as to why he is leaving to The Guardian: “Aidan [Turner’s] left to film The Hobbit in New Zealand [with Peter Jackson] and going on without him on this fourth series felt strange.”
Despite losing two of its three original cast, Tovey still thinks the show can continue: “With Being Human the story can definitely go on and on,” Tovey insists. “Toby [Whithouse, the writer] still runs it and they can do all sorts … add giants and robots!”
Tovey will exit the show during the fourth series which is due to air early 2012.
