The 22-year-old actor, who joined the show as Xavier Austin in 2008, bid Home and Away adieu with a heartfelt tweet to his followers.
"Just wanted to say thanks to all my fans out there for your continued support throughout the years. Truly wouldn't be where I am without you guys," he wrote.
David bowed out of the hit Aussie drama after deciding he wanted to separate work and his personal life and move to Goulburn in regional NSW.
He joked about his newfound unemployment by changing his Twitter profile to read, "I'm an Australian actor. Worked on Home and Away, played Xavier Austin. Just waiting on my next gig."
Heads-up, Aussie talent stalkers — there's a Summer Bay heart-throb on the loose!
