Quote Amy Mistretta: Michael Easton is not leaving OLTL. He'll be taking a leave of absense--that's where the car accident storyline will play in.
Thanks for posting! Amy
but his own site said he was leaving. i read it myself when his contracts came up for renewal. was he lying? did something change? will he be "dead" to everyone on the show? and when you say leave of absence are you sure he won't be gone for good?.
They weren't rumors and Michael wasn't lying. He and ABC were in contract negociations for quite some time. In fact, there was a time when his death was going to be written into the storyline... No worries now, he's not leaving.
