We were all left on edge in the season finale of Scandal for many reason. One being the fate of Columbus Short‘s character Harrison.
Well it looks like those rumors have Shonda Rhimes axing Short if he doesn’t get his act together are true. Moments ago he released a statement through his publicist that he will not be returning for the fourth season of Scandal.
“At this time I must confirm my exit from a show I’ve called home for 3 years, with what is the most talented ensemble on television today. I would like to first thank [creator] Shonda Rhimes for the opportunity to work with such an amazing cast. Thank you GLADIATORS, who have supported me throughout my entire career and of course to ABC and Shondaland for allowing me to play such a pivotal role in the Scandal series. I have enjoyed every single minute of it. Everything must come to an end and unfortunately the time has come for Harrison Wright to exit the canvas. I wish nothing but the best for Shonda, Kerry and the rest of the cast, who have become like a second family to me in such a short amount of time. For this, I will forever be grateful.”
Buh bye Harrison it was nice while it lasted. Hopefully his person business had nothing to do with the demise of Shorts character.
