Former Grey's Anatomy
star T.R. Knight
has slammed his ex-bosses for slowly cutting him out of the series by reducing his screen time.
The actor finally left the medical drama at the end of the latest series following months of speculation about his future on the show.
Knight claims he was forced out of the series following a "breakdown in communication" with series creator Shonda Rhimes
, insisting TV bosses gradually reduced his role until he felt he had no choice but to quit.
Knight admits he was happy to walk away from his $14 million contract three years early, in order to find a job which is more "fulfilling."
He tells Entertainment Weekly magazine, "There just comes a time when it's so clear that moving on is the best decision. It didn't seem like an ebb to me. No other series regular's character had ever disappeared like mine did this past season.
"There are a lot of people who would like to be in my position. But, in the end, I need to be fulfilled in my work - that's more important than the money."
Knight's first post-Grey's Anatomy roles will be theatrical - he has shows lined up in Los Angeles and New York.
