'After' Star Shane Paul McGhie Announces Exit From Film Franchise

Shane Paul McGhie will no longer be starring as Landon in the After movies.

The 26-year-old actor was rumored to have been fired from the third and fourth films, but he’s setting the record straight.

“It is with a heavy heart that I am announcing I will not be filming in Bulgaria,” Shane wrote in an Instagram story. “We could not come to an agreement and I had to make a really tough call. I had to stand up for me, the way that Landon would.”

“I am so grateful to you all for welcoming me into the After family and for supporting me along this incredible journey,” he continued. “I have felt your love from around the world and that has been the biggest blessing and honor. I have seen how, for a lot of you, After has changed your lives and been a light during dark times.”

Shane also thanked the book’s writer Anna Todd, as well as other producers.

“I am forever grateful to you. Thank you for trusting me with this character and for fighting for me,” he said. “The sacrifices I have seen you three make for the happiness of the fandom has been inspiring. And, although, you don’t always get the credit you deserve, you did things for the right reasons and ‘karma will work in your favor.’”

“Please welcome the actor who replaces me and treat him with the respect and love you’ve been giving me since the first day I was first brought on,” Shane told the fans.

The next two movies, After We Fell and After Ever After, are currently filming in Bulgaria with stars Josephine Langford and Hero Fiennes-Tiffin, with new director Castille Landon. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina actor Chance Perdomo is rumored to be taking over the role from Shane.
