Damon Gupton may be out at Criminal Minds, but he's still getting all kind of love from fans of the series.
In the weeks that followed his departure announcement, an outpouring of love for Gupton flooded his Twitter feed, as the fans were clearly upset to see him go. Folks began sending Gupton photos of his character from the show, messages about how great his performance was, and just kind thoughts in general.
Now, a couple weeks after being let go, the actor has responded to his fans' overwhelming response.
I'd really like to thank all of the Criminal Minds fans who kindly reached out to me over the last two weeks.Very moving. You have my heart.— Damon Gupton (@DamonGupton) June 24, 2017
The actor tweeted, "I'd really like to thank all of the Criminal Minds fans who kindly reached out to me over the last two weeks. Very moving. You have my heart."
For those hoping to see Gupton again, it's good to know that he's already pursuing his first post-Criminal Minds role. A couple of weeks ago, he tweeted out a message about an audition he had, noting that it was always difficult to try out for something after just losing your job.
For me, I have found the first audition after losing your job is always one of my worst.— Damon Gupton (@DamonGupton) June 16, 2017
While Damon Gupton won't be along for the ride, Criminal Minds will return to CBS on Wednesday, September 27 at 10pm ET.
