Out of respect for the actress, without going into detail, as many actors and actresses know, not all fan encounters are good, some are even downright scary... Therefore, Andrea had no choice but to give up the job that she loved!
Andrea's run with the show first came in 1978 - 1981, then again in 1985 - 1990 when she returned to reprise her role as Tina Lord Roberts. Now playing Rebecca Hotchkiss Crane on the soon to be canceled NBC's Passions, Andrea has expressed that there is no longer 'that threat' and that if asked she would be very interested in returning to OLTL!
I've always been a big fan of Andrea's and know that the fans would welcome her and Tina back in Llanview in a heartbeat! Let's face it, her character has been missed since the day she left and could easily march back into town as if she hadn't been gone at all! Here's hoping!
