Bruce Campbell Announces His Retirement From Evil Dead’s Ash Character

Published

on

With the downfall of the Starz series ‘Ash vs. Evil Dead’, actor Bruce Campbell has announced his retirement from playing the role of the film’s iconic hero Ash Williams.

Campbell first eluded to the retirement on Monday night when he tweeted “Big props to fans for the effort, but I’m retired as Ash.”

Today, Campbell released a full statement:

“Good people, Evil Dead fans everywhere, I bid you a heartfelt farewell playing Ash – the character I took acting lessons with for 39 years. I am hereby retiring from that portrayal. It’s time. I followed Ash from his formative years thru his mid-life crisis and decline. What a thrill! What a privilege!

We had a great resurgence with the help of Starz (kudos not jeers, folks). They made it possible for 15 more hours of Evil Dead-ness in your life – the equivalent of 10 more features!

Is Ash dead? Never. Ash is as much a concept as a person. Where there is evil in this world, there must be one to counter – man or woman, it matters not.

Thanks for watching.

Love, Bruce.”
