LATEST: Actor Michael Vartan has rubbished reports his character has been written out of hit TV show ALIAS.

Vartan, who plays his former girlfriend Jennifer Garner's on-screen lover Michael Vaughn on the show, reportedly shot his final scenes last month (AUG05).

Sources had claimed that Vaughn would be killed off in the upcoming series, which then sees Garner's pregnant character SYDNEY BRISTOW coping with impending motherhood.

But Vartan insists none of the reports are true, blasting, "Where do you guys get these rumours about me getting killed off? I am coming back this season."

Committed fans had launched an internet campaign last month (AUG05) to save his character after hearing the reports.
