The saddest departures of actors in a series

25/02/2020

A series is made of laughter, tears, joy... But it's also departures. Many actors leave the series at the beginning of a new season, but some can truly be heartbreaking. Let's take a look at the ones that have left the greatest impression on us.

Patrick Dempsey

Patrick Dempsey aka Dr. Shepherd in Grey's Anatomy was supposed to stay with Meredith Grey forever. But the show decided otherwise: Derek Shepherd died in a car accident during season 11. No one was left untouched.

Shemar Moore

In 2016, after 11 years of good and loyal services, Shemar Moore left the cult series Criminal Minds, leaving millions of people in incomprehension.

Nina Dobrev

The heroine from The Vampire Diaries, Nina Dobrev alias Elena Gilbert, also decided to leave the series after 6 seasons and reappeared only briefly in the 8th and final season of the show.

Chandler Riggs

One does not count any more the number of deaths in The Walking Dead, but if there is indeed a disappearance that marked us, it is that of Chandler Riggs who plays Carl in the show. Brutal and sudden, his departure did not leave anybody indifferent and even made the audiences drop!

Alfred Enoch

Found dead in Annalise's house, the actor Alfred Enoch who plays Wes in Murder was only informed of his fictitious death one month before it happened! A shock for both the actor and the spectators.

Christopher Meloni

Mariska Hargitay's partner in the mythical series New-York, Special Unit, Christopher Meloni, left the show during the 12th season. A surprising exit but it did not stop the series to start again with new characters.
