Russell Tovey On Leaving Being Human

None

Our resident Being Human expert Narin Bahar learns some more from Tovey about his tough decision to leave the show

“I’m going to miss Aidan. I didn't want to do it without Aidan and I wanted to leave on a high. It just felt time.

“I know some people might be pissed off with me that I’ve left, but I want people to love George and understand that I want to go off and explore other things. It’s sad. I’d decided that I was going to go when I finished filming series three, but then it was so successful and I thought, ‘Should I really be leaving?’ But I am. For me three is the magic number. It's always in my head. I’d done three series and I was ready to go.”

That doesn’t mean, though, that there’s no George in series four. He doesn’t just vanish, with a line from Annie about how he’s off in Bolton now, or whatever. But just how much we’ll see of him is yet to be revealed. Seems he’ll be getting a proper send-off, though.
