Christopher Abbott leaves HBO series Girls after butting heads w/ Lena Dunham

Christopher Abbott has abruptly left the hit HBO series Girls. According to Page Six, Abbott — — who plays Allison Williams’ boyfriend Charlie on the show — began butting heads with series creator Lena Dunham as the show entered production again. “They’ve just started work on Season 3, and Chris is at odds with Lena,” a source said. “He didn’t like the direction things are going in, which seems a bit odd since the show put him on the map.” Abbott’s rep confirms the departure, saying: “[Chris] is grateful for the experience of collaborating with Lena, JuddF [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.”
