On Friday, soap fans witness the final episode of David Canary as Adam Chandler, as Adam bids farewell to Pine Valley leaving with the love of his life Brooke, played by Julia Barr. It was the soap veterans last airdate (for now), and it was a another touching show from All My Children, whose week was filled with bittersweet goodbyes to James Mitchell as Palmer, and five-time Daytime Emmy winner, Canary.
Back in February, Canary revealed that it was time in his career to retire and that he would be back at his home in Connecticut. He told EW.com, “My career on All My Children has given me more than words could ever covey, both professionally and personally. I have cherished each and every moment. 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.”
