What happens when your soap opera character comes out of a coma? You go back to work.
David Andrew Macdonald, who played Oberon in Hartford Stage's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" this fall, was expected to join the cast for the theater's annual production of "A Christmas Carol."
But the actor's character in GUIDING LIGHT suddenly "came to," and so Macdonald is stepping out of the holiday show to return to his TV gig.
Macdonald originally joined the GL cast in 1999 as Edmund following a year on ANOTHER WORLD (he played Jordan/David until the show's cancellation).
In other GUIDING LIGHT casting news, Michelle Ray Smith (Ava) will return to the show for a visit at Christmas time.
