Just a few hours ago, One Life to Live’s, Tika Sumpter (Layla) announced via a special video on her facebook page that she has made the decision to go off contract with the soap, and go to recurring status, starting July 3oth.  So this means, Tika will come back to One Life, when they call her and need her to work.  But the talented actress has made it clear, she wants to move on, and pursue new avenues in her career.

The sentimental and direct video to the fans was extremely impressive, emotional, and Tika asks for her loyal fan base to support her new endeavors. You can link directly to the video on facebook here. 

We wish you the best Tika always from On-Air On-Soaps! Now what do you think is going to happen to lovebirds Layla and Cristian?  Let us know!

    Wow, I think how Tika videotaped her message was great. I love it. I will miss Layla though.

    I think that they will probably wake Evangeline up and Christian will realise that he is still in love with her. The writers could do better but let’s face Layla (Tika) has always been second best and never really had good storylines. Interestingly this mirrors how the character has been written i.e. she is second best as a daughter, she wasn’t loved enough by Vincent to come first in his life and was used by Oliver to cover up the fact that he was gay. It’s a shame really because Layla (Tika) deserves better. I hope I am wrong about my prediction but that’s how I think it will go down. Anyway, I wish Tika the best with whatever she pursues in future. She is a wonderful actress.
