I started wondering what had happened to a few of my favorite As The World Turns characters and thought I’d do a different “Where Are They Now?” type article, only instead of updating all of you about the actors, I thought we’d update the characters – or at least what we last knew of the characters!

First, let’s check in with Dr. John Dixon, played by Larry Bryggman from 1969 until he left Oakdale in 2004. Dr. Dixon was a cardiologist at Oakdale Memorial. No explanation has been given as to why Dr. Dixon hasn’t been seen around the hospital in the last few years, so we can assume that he is still on-staff there. Larry Bryggman, who played Dr. Dixon, left the show to pursue other acting opportunities in 2004. Will a recast Dr. Dixon show up in Oakdale some day? We’ll just have to wait and see!

Lucy Montgomery hasn’t been seen in Oakdale since 2006. She was living at the Walsh home at the time but when Lucy discovered that her father, Craig, could get custody of Johnny (Jennifer’s son) she took the boy and ran. No one knows where she has gone – not even the Munson family. Actress Spencer Grammer, who played the part of Lucy, has gone on to star in movie and television. In 2007, she appeared in the film “Descent” as well as the television hit “Greek”.
