Lauren Socha will not appear in the fourth series of Misfits.
A Channel 4 spokesperson confirmed to Digital Spy that the 21-year-old actress will not reprise her role as Kelly in the E4 drama.
"A mutual decision was reached between Clerkenwell and Lauren earlier this year that she would not be returning for the fourth series," it was announced in a statement.
"Misfits has been in production for a number of weeks now and Lauren is not part of the lineup."
It was also confirmed that Socha's departure is not related to her recent conviction for racially-aggravated assault.
The spokesperson added: "No. Clerkenwell Films and Lauren Socha agreed some time ago that along with other cast members, including Iwan Rheon and Antonia Thomas, she would not be returning for the fourth series of Misfits, which is currently in production. Channel 4 supports both parties' decisions."
Misfits will return to E4 in late 2012.
