More shockers in the world of daytime and this one is HUGE to One Life to Live fans! One of the most talented actors ever in the soap genre, Trevor St. John (Todd Manning) announced just an hour or so ago on his official website blog that he is leaving One Life to Live at the end of his contract cycle, and his last tape day will be around the middle of July!
St. John in his statement, let his legions of fans know that he expressed interest in continuing on with the series, but the producers decided to soldier on through to the end of the series without him. Read below Trevor’s post!
“I want to let you know that my current contract on One Life to Live is coming to an end and my last shooting day on the show will likely come the week of July 18th. Although I expressed an interest in continuing to perform on the show beyond the aforementioned date the producers have decided they’d rather press on without me. To be clear, I was not fired. But the producers feel it’s in the show’s best interest not to write any more story for my character. I don’t think I can adequately express my gratitude to all of you who have supported me for the last eight years. It’s been my great honor and pleasure to play the character of Todd. And I can only hope that I served you well and that I did you proud. I’ve also enjoyed the pleasure of meeting many of you in person through the years and I hope we have the opportunity to meet again as my career progresses. But to all of you who have been there for me in person or in spirit — I thank you.”
So why do you think the show decided to let Trevor leave? How will Trevor’s Todd (or who ever he is) wrap up? It is becoming very hard to know at OLTL these days, who will be there for the finale and who won’t, as many characters we have come to love are exiting early!
Stay tuned for more on this developing story in the coming days!
