Cameron Monaghan is saying goodbye to Shameless for good. I guess all good things must come to an end. The 25-year-old actor, who stars as Ian Gallagher on the Showtime dramedy, announced today that he is departing, which he began at the age of 15.
“I have been a series regular on this show for roughly ten years. I was the tender age of fifteen when we shot the pilot, and I came of age in so many ways, both legally and personally,” he began his Instagram post.
“I was very lucky to mature and grow with this show. Experiencing so many firsts, maturing as an actor, a professional, and a human. In the process gaining friends, family, and the best coworkers a very lucky actor could ask for, and for this I can be nothing but gracious,” said Monaghan.
His departure comes more than a month after series star Emy Rossum announce at the end of August that she too was leaving the show. And if you’re a fan like me, then it just won’t be the same. 😭
But stay tuned as more develops. Shameless airs Sundays (9 p.m. ET) on Showtime. In other news, Tyler The Creator Remakes A Christmas Classic.
