Daniel Henney said farewell to his fans in an emotional video shared on social media, and they had a lot of kind words for him.


Daniel Henney plays "Matthew Simmons" on the "CBS" criminal procedural drama series "Criminal Minds," and as it comes to an end, he recorded an emotional farewell video for his fans on Twitter.


Henney tweeted along with the video,

"It's bittersweet that we've come to an end here on @CrimMinds_CBS. Just wanted to thank you all for the support over the years. We love you."

In the video, the actor, sitting in his trailer, thanked his fans for supporting him for the three years he was on the show and the two he spent on "Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders."


He continued that the show would not have lasted as long as it did without the fans, adding:

"We love you guys so much, and always talk about the amazing fan support we have. "

Henney said it felt surreal that the show is over, but he is grateful he got to be a part of it. Getting emotional, he said he's at a loss for words, adding:

"Thank you, I've cleaned out the trailer, so it's a wrap."

The actor ended by saying he is happy he will get to take out the fake tattoo on his left arm, which he says is the only good thing coming from the show's ending.


The video has gotten over 50, 000 views and hundreds of likes and comments. One fan said as one door closes, others will open, and another asked the actor to stop making them cry.


Others wished him well in his future endeavors while saying they will miss "Matthew Simmons" and the casts of the show.

Henney is an accomplished actor both in America and overseas. He rose to fame in Korea after starring in the television series "My Lovely Sam-soon."


He had his American TV debut in the series " Three Rivers," and he has starred in movies like "The Last Stand," “X-Men Origins: Wolverine," and "Seducing Mr. Perfect."

His other TV credits include starring in "Hawaii Five-O," "NCIS: Los Angeles, " and he voiced Takashi Hamada in the Oscar-winning animation "Big Hero 6."

Although "Criminal Minds" is at an end, the show tweeted that fans should smile rather than cry; they can catch up on all the previous seasons on "CBS Access."

The executive producer, Erica Messer, said they had a good run for a long time, and the best part is that they are going out with a lot of stories to tell, and not on life support.
