Heather Tom: Why She Left!
In daytime, characters come and go and the stars who portray them always seem to have a certain idea in mind where their storylines may lead. In the case of One Life to Live’s Emmy Award Winning actress Heather Tom (ex-Kelly) things weren’t any different.
While she was excited to take over the role of Kelly Cramer, a character with traits totally opposite of her prior Y&R alter ego Victoria Newman, it soon became apparent that her thrilling storyline was at a standstill after the notorious baby switch. Little by little, Heather’s airtime and Kelly’s up-in-the-air relationship with the Buchanan’s declined, leaving the actress unsure of her future with the show.
After commuting from New York to her Los Angeles home on a regular basis, Heather decided not to re-sign with the show and aim her sights on other projects. While appreciative for everything One Life to Live offered her – and not ruling out a return to daytime in the future – Heather is looking to make her mark in the primetime market. For the time being, fans can catch Heather in her recurring primetime role on the new Fox series
The Wedding Bells where she works side by side with her real-life sister, Nicholle Tom.
