Soaps.com Dispels AMC Casting Rumors
Bobbie Eakes renews her contract! (ABC.com)
The Internet has been abuzz lately with rumors that several of our favorite Pine Valleyites would be leaving All My Children. Soaps.com got to work and in the past couple of days has learned that several of these rumors are simply untrue.
It has been rumored for several weeks that Jacob Young (JR) would be leaving Pine Valley, opening the role foryet another recast. Soaps.com can tell you now that that will not happen. Jacob is staying in Pine Valley so stop worrying JR fans, your favorite hunk will be sticking around!
Rumormongers are also speculating that, since she hasn’t had much of a storyline lately, that Leven Rambin (Lily/Ava) must be on the way out. Sources tell us that Leven will not leave Pine Valley.
In the past year, however, Leven has landed some high-profile guest star roles on Prime Time television - on Law & Order and Cashmere Mafia. So, even though our sources say she is staying, I predict that Leven may not be in daytime for much longer. We could see this fan favorite make the jump to Prime Time once her contract is up in the future.
Finally, we can confirm that Bobbie Eakes (Krystal) is staying in Pine Valley. Bobbie renewed her contract with the show several weeks ago. With the Tad/Kathy-Kate storyline heating up and Krystal's obvious love for Adam - you didn't miss those longing looks when she was camping at the manse, did you? - it looks like we'll be seeing a lot of Krystal in the future!
There you have it fans, you are up to date on who's staying and. . .well, who's staying in Pine Valley!
