So after a week’s worth of conflicting reports, it has been confirmed through an ABC spokesperson to ABC Soaps In Depth that indeed Dr. David Hayward has taken his last breath, and thus Vincent Irizarry has exited the ABC soap. “We are sorry to lose Vincent, but David’s death was storyline-dictated and the payoff of this story will reveal many unexpected twists and plot developments,” says the rep in a statement to the publication.

This news came to light after Irizarry’s recent statement on his website: “Regarding my character’s sudden end and any previously reported news of negotiations between me and ABC, those statements were not authorized and premature,” says the new message. “Unfortunately, there’s really not much more I can say at this time except how truly appreciative I am for all the comments on websites and message boards which have been written in support of my work and my character. There would be no doubt to me whatsoever, if I ever 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…we’ll miss you, Vincent …and David!”

    Sudden demise? Did they kill him off with poisoned pancakes?
    The guys been employed in daytime for 25 years. AMC is crazy to let the talented Irizarry go.

    Does this mean there is room for a new Dr. in Pine Valley?
    May I suggest Dr. Reid Oliver. He and his partner Luke Snyder come fully equipped with a built in fanbase. A very large one.

    He and his character were the reasons I watched All My Children. I thought his acting were superb, and great to look at too. He gave the show excitement. I don’t know how you can bring him back, however others have come back from the dead. The show isn’t the same without him.

    Vincent, you truly are a great actor, otherwise you could have not made us hate you (David) so much! You will be missed. Good luck in your future endeavors.

    Zach is not worth the money. Boring, same suits, same disposition, no comparison to David. Although I do think David could have done a better job on Kendall’s heart scar.

    Vincent you will be missed . I will no longer be watching all my children since I found out they let you go. They could have gotten rid of Ryan and Erica I’m sick of the stupid story lines . You made the show , what is it now the good people of Pine Valley . How boring. Best of luck.

    The writers at ABC for All My Children are truly moronic—-how do you get rid of such an incredible actor as Vincent . He made the show interesting and his goodguy/badguy portrayal of David Haywood is comparable to none. Vincent – you are an incredible actor and don’t let the idiotic writers at all my children tell you otherwise. You will be sorely missed, but fear not, I’m sure some other soap, with the common sense to see how truly gifted an actor you are, will sign you up in not time. Shame on you All My Children writers— unfortunately you will come to realize too late what a great loss for your show losing Vincent is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Good luck to you Vincent…… an eternal David/Vincent fan, Maria C.

    I keep hoping that somehow David managed to pull a big hoax off, and that he is alive, well, and just waiting to return to Pine Valley. I believe the show really needs David to add some spice to it…JR can’t be the only bad boy on there. So, somehow someone has to convince the writers they can finda way to bring David back and create even more of those twists and turns they want.

    I miss Zach, he is easier on the eyes, but I am and is tired of Kendal putting everyone in front of Zach. She just keep doing the same thing over and over and over. It like watching the same movie again and again with her and Zach’s relationship. So for that I am glad Zach is dead. It Kendal’s fault Zach is dead, she should stop putting people before Zach. So if Zach dying means I do not have to look at Kendal running behind everyone else and their family playing “captain save a boat” in regards to everyone else life, I can live with Zach’s death. Just sad to see him go.

    Get rid of Opal and Tad. Nothing interesting that I care to see there, Tad’s hair just kills any romantic episodes he begins, and he looks older than Opal. lol Bring Zach back and give him a better storyline without Kendal. And give us a break with Kendal, she needs a life. Now I have to see her whine, O God no! (sigh) I am glad Zach is dead, so maybe I can stop hearing Kendal whining for one thing after another.
