Russell Tovey leaves Being Human

Russell Tovey has announced today on Twitter that he will be leaving his role in Being Human.

Speaking on Twitter, the actor behind werewolf George Sands in the BBC3 cult hit said: “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… Im sorry x

This comes while fans are still upset over Aidan Turner’s (Mitchell) departure from the show at the end of the last series.

In an interview with The Guardian, Tovey said: “Well, I’ve actually left Being Human but no one [outside of the show] knows yet. Aidan’s left to film The Hobbit in New Zealand [with Peter Jackson] and going on without him on this fourth series felt strange…

With the loss of two original main characters from the show it is uncertain whether there will be a series five after next year, but Tovey insists that the show can continue: “…with Being Human the story can definitely go on and on. Toby [Whithouse, the writer] still runs it and they can do all sorts…add giants and robots!

Series four of Being Human and Russell’s departure from the show can be seen on BBC3 in 2012.
