Guy Henry joined the cast of Holby City and first appeared on the wards of Holby City in October 2010. Henry decided to leave the role and his exit aired in October 2013, before returning to the show in April 2015. The actor since has taken small breaks from the show to pursue other roles.

The good news is that it will only be a temporary exit for Hanssen and he will return at a later date.

It’s not yet known how long he will be away from the hospital, but fans can be safe in the knowledge that he isn’t gone for good.
