In a statement relayed by TVLine, Madeleine Mantock says: “Playing Macy on Charmed for the last three seasons has been an immense privilege and I have so enjoyed working with our fantastic producers, creatives, cast and crew.” She adds: “I’m incredibly grateful to The CW and CBS Studios for my time on the show and for being a brilliant support in my difficult decision to leave. Huge thanks to our fans who can look forward to, what I know will be, a spectacular fourth season.”
Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro, showrunners of Charmed, thanked her: “We can’t thank Madeleine enough for her incredible and inspiring work on Charmed.” They add: “We will miss her as much as the fans will, but we also respect her decision to move on. This is a difficult time in the world, and everyone has to follow their heart. We wish her well, and the door is always open for a return visit from Macy…one way or another!”
At the moment, we don’t know yet what will be the fate of Macy in the finale which will be aired on July 23. In the original series, the writers had decided to kill Prue Halliwell, the character played by Shannen Doherty to justify her departure from the show. In order to reform the power of the 3, the writers had then revealed the existence of Paige (Rose McGowan), the hidden half-sister of the Halliwell sisters. Will it be the same in the reboot? We’ll have an answer in the next months.
