    More Y&R Exits!

    Friday, July 13 2007

    Ted Shakelford exits on July 18, 2007! (
    The revolving door to the soap world has opened and shut yet again. Although The Young and the Restless is set to gain two new actresses, Vail Bloom (Heather Stevens) on July 13, 2007 and Tammin Sursok (Colleen Carlton) on June 30, 2007, the show is losing two more actors.

    On the heels of Adrianne Leon’s shocking exit news, it was announced that fellow cast mates Ted Shackelford (William Bardwell) will leave the show on July 18, 2007 with Billy Warlock (Ben Hollander) close behind. Although neither of the actors were to be signed on long term, it’s still a disappointment to fans who were so excited to see these great actors back on the daytime scene, especially Warlock after his November 2006 exit from Days of Our Lives.

    Joining Y&R in 2006, Ted Shakelford starred in primetime television series Dallas and Knots Landing, as well as making appearances in other primetime series.

    Although Billy only spent a little over two months with the show, we’re sure he’ll have no trouble finding another niche in daytime. Warlock's daytime career includes roles such as Ricky Driscoll on Capitol in 1984 and Frankie Brady on Days of Our Lives from 1986-1988, 1990-1991, 2005 - November 2006 to which he won the Daytime Emmy for Best Actor/Younger Leading Man in 1988. To learn more about his career, please visit his official website at Billy! wants to wish Ted and Billy the very best in their careers. We hope to see you soon!

    I wish Billy Warlock would come back as AJ to Port Charles. Edward is so dammed to have someone run ELQ. AJ could be forgiven and come back.

    i dont understand why they let adrianne leon go, she is one of the most beautiful and most gifted actresses on the show. i love her and gloria and mrs chancellor and jill and nikki . why would they let adrianne go when she is so good for the show ? she even looked like brads daughter.

    It's sad that Adrianne Leon is leaving. Why????? How come it's such a big secret? I wish they would just be honest with the whole story.

    I wish the writers would give people a chance even Billy Warlok. I thought he was good, especially if they gave him a storyline and also with Ted Shackelford, I just got use to him. WOW

    The writers should focus on better storylines instead of getting rid of people so quickly.

    They didn't give billy much of a story line. I wish they didn't drop him, but give them a better story line. ugh!

    I wish they wouls stop killing off all the better actors on Y&R. Ted Shackelford is just another example of getting rid of good actor's & story lines. If any one should be let go it is JT & Vikki. They are so ooold & boooring. Come on Y&R-wake up & stop taking away from our best soap ever. Ladyelk

    I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED THAT Y&R let Adrianne go! I have watched the show for 30 years....Y&R, you've let me down! I, TOO, LOVE GLORIA! And ALL OF HER FAMILY! Christian Leblanc is to die for!

    They should rename Y & R to "You're N & Running Out" LOL!
    The actor's and actresses do change on this beloved show a lot.
    There are a bunch of men, women and children that makes this show so great to watch!
    Remember that even life has it's revolving door, too!
