Actor Sean Kanan (Deacon Sharpe) has been let go from “The Young and the Restless.” Sean broke the news to his fans on Twitter, saying, “Well it’s just two weeks before X-Mas and the PTB [Powers That Be] have just let me know that I will be gone from GC in five more shows. Merry X-Mas. Playing the “villain” is not easy. Supposedly I will be coming back. Let’s hope soaps are still around then. Guess I can finish my next book.”
