Tovey Leaves “Human”
Actor Russell Tovey has parted ways with the British genre hit Being Human.
The actor broke the news via Twitter and the UK Guardian on Friday. Tovey played George the werewolf on the series.
The actor cited the exit of actor Aidan Turner and his character, the vampire Mitchell, as the probable catalyst for his departure.
“Well, I’ve actually left Being Human but no one [outside of the show] knows yet,” he says, bursting our bubble. The news will come as a shock to fans, still reeling from Aidan Turner’s exit as his character, Mitchell the vampire, was killed off by George in the season three finale. “Aidan’s left to film The Hobbitin New Zealand [with Peter Jackson] and going on without him on this fourth series felt strange,” says Tovey by way of explanation. But for such a huge sci fi-ish hit on both sides of the Atlantic, doesn’t having only one of the original cast members left put the show in major jeopardy?,” he says.
“No, 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!”
