It has been officially confirmed that Daytime Emmy nominated actress Meredith Hagner (Liberty Ciccone) will be departing from the cast of As The World Turns in the near future. She is due to tape her final episode this December.

Hagner joined the series in April of 2008. Her character has had a consistently rocky time in Oakdale and often been tempted to run away, but what leads to her departure still isn’t known. Outside of her work on the soap, she already has a role on the USA series, “Royal Pains” and recently completed two features. She will play Eva Leary in the TV movie “Lights Out” and has also filmed a part in the Drew Barrymore film, “Going The Distance.” Both of those films will be released next year.
