In the new issue out on newstands today of CBS Soaps in Depth, and through rumblings we have already heard, it is now confirmed that Thad Luckinbill has chosen to leave his role of J.T. on The Young and the Restless. Thad has decided not to renew his contract.
His wife, actress, Amelia Heinle of Y&R, (Victoria) had this to say, “It’s a blessing in disguise. He’s never been in this position before. [He] is going to grow as a person and as an actor. I hope he gets a cop show! He’s done guest roles on primetime because he was working on Y&R. Now that he has nothing holding him back, you just wait — he’s going to [succeed even more]. I know it. He’s going to be so happy that this has happened.”
