I heard a rumor of some lovely people who were going to stop by the studio for a certain riff raff's birthday. Some others who wanted to deliver a cake. Even more wonderful folks who wanted to send cards and treats and I want you to know I am incredibly humbled by these gestures but unfortunately I will not be around to enjoy them. I've been informed, that due to some ongoing legal this and that, I cannot be at "General Hospital" after February 8th and since I know many of you go to great trouble to do something special, I just don't want to see anybody's efforts go to waste (especially the lovely person who always sneaks in the fine Irish Whiskey).According to Daytime Confidential, Roger Howarth's Todd Manning and Kristen Alderson's Starr Manning are in the same boat. All three actors are under contract with ABC, but the characters have been licensed by Prospect Park. The scenes the actors tape until February 8th will air throughout the month.
If it's not too bold, may I suggest a donation to The American Cancer Society instead. Then some good will have come out of this...
...Miss you guys already.
Soap Opera Digest is reporting Prospect Park intends to recast the roles of Starr, John and Todd for its OLTL reboot.
On Twitter Kristen Alderson added, "Thank you for all of your sweet responses to the recent madness. Nothing yet to report! Praying for positive answers."
Prospect Park has released a statement on this issue.
