Many of us come to love the characters on our television shows. Seeing them every week becomes a ritual, one we look forward to. Unfortunately, while many of us expect a certain level of consistency in our shows, we don’t always get it – mostly because our favorite characters can just be gone in the blink of an eye. This has been a problem for years. Sometimes the exit of a character can ruin a show; however, that doesn’t stop it from happening. Check out our list of 7 Abrupt Main Character Exits – All of these characters were killed off and it was really disappointing!
7. Nina Dobrev – The Vampire Diaries
Nina Dobrev recently announced that she will be leaving “The Vampire Diaries” at the end of the sixth season. According to her, she’s been planning this all along. “I always knew I wanted Elena’s story to be a six season adventure, and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime,” she said via Instagram.
No one knows what surprises the show has in store, but it sounds big. “I invite you to hop on the roller coaster ride that is Elena Gilbert’s life and join me as I celebrate her and prepare to say goodbye to her – and to my work family – as I move on to the next chapter of my life,” she wrote. “You, the wonderful fandom who gave more love, support and passion than anyone could have ever imagined seven years ago, when a young Degrassi girl from Canada showed up in L.A. to audition for that Twilight TV show. I love you all. Fasten your seatbelts. If you think you know what’s coming, you don’t.”
