As many have heard now through various soap publications and online platforms, it is Vincent Irizarry’s nefarious Dr. David Hayward, who gets “killed” in the whodunit/murder mystery plans from new AMC head writers, David Kreizman and Donna Swajeski. And while this Daytime Emmy winner’s departure from the show was a well-kept secret and had been touted as the “death of a main character” on the show, there are some conflicting reports emerging that may cast doubt if Vincent is: truly gone from Pine Valley, if it’s temporary, or if something else is in the works.
Last evening on his official facebook page, Rachel Anderson, who runs the page for Vincent posted this statement to his fan base! ”Hello everyone — We can now confirm and tell you that Vincent is still in negotiations, as the end of his contract is up shortly. The show has added this plot twist, but as I expressed below, please continue to tune in and make your thoughts, wishes, and voices known. Like many of you, I feel there is much more of D…avid’s story that needs to unfold and we would love to continue watching Vincent’s amazing portrayal of the most complex character on the daytime canvas!
Vincent passed on at how touched he has been by the overwhelming support and outpouring of messages that he has received over the past few days from all of you. Vincent writes, “I can’t say enough how appreciative I am of all the comments on websites and message boards that have been written in support of my work and my character. There would be no doubt to me whatsoever, if I do return to AMC, it will be in greater part because of this wonderful outpouring from all of you who love the show and David as much as I do. I am forever grateful to all of you.”
So what do you think? Is Irizarry truly dead and gone from P.V.?
