It’s official, five-time Daytime Emmy Award winner, David Canary, as expected has announced his retirement. Canary offered up this statement to SOAPnet.com on his big good-bye. “My career on All My Children has given me more than words could ever convey, both professionally and personally. I have cherished each and every moment. I would like to thank all the fans who have tuned in throughout the years. Their love and support has meant the world to me. I truly feel that I will leave the show in great hands. The viewers will be happy with how Adam departs the canvas and I know that leaving JR (Jacob Young) as head of the Chandler household will continue to provide the show with many great stories to come. This is not the last you’ve seen of Adam Chandler. I will be back to check up on the Chandler Clan.”
Canary is set to air through April 2010. According to the SOAPnet.com post, “Expect to see a scandalous end to his marriage with Annie (Melissa Claire Egan) and a reunion with an ex-wife.” But, which on? More on Canary’s retirement throughout the next few months.
