He told Tvline: "Even though it was only three seasons, I was glad for it to be done, and I was glad to have done it."

Daniels added the he was happy to sign off as the caustic news anchor for the last time.

"It was a huge challenge, but it was also a hell of a lot of work for [Sorkin] — and for us. And at some point, you wonder if it's going to deteriorate"

The actor also spoke about missing playing the character. "Yeah, a little bit. I feel happier just not being him. Happiness was an acquired taste for him."

"Mac certainly helped. He had a lot of issues. A lot of issues. Insecurity, vanity, ego, too smart for the room — until Mac told him otherwise — and then he realised what an idiot he was. It was great fun to do, and I will miss the people. I will miss the family that was the cast and crew of The Newsroom."
