Comings and Goings!

Erin Torpey(Jessica Buchanan) is in serious contract negotiations with OLTL, but wants to leave the show to pursue a singing career. Although it hasn't been confirmed yet, the actress will probably leave the show when her contract expires.

Barbara Garrick(Allison Perkins) will be leaving the show this Summer. Her last tape date should be sometime in late July, and he last airdate is unknown at this time. It is very likely that we could see Allison pop up in Llanview again sometime though.

Mark Derwin(Ben Davidson) will leave OLTL for an unknown amount of time to shoot his new primetime show, "Life With Bonnie". There will not be a recast for Ben. It is still unknown what OLTL plans to do with the character, or even if Ben is coming back at all, but Derwin has stated that he would like to come back to the show soon.

Many OLTL fans are going to be very upset with this news, but Roger Howarth(Todd Manning) will be leaving OLTL once again! This was Howarth's choice to leave OLTL, but Executive Producer, Gary Tomlin did try to convince him to stay on the show however Howarth just didn't want to stay. His contract ends in May, but has agreed to stay until June to finish up a storyline. Once Howarth is done with OLTL he will take a much needed few months off and then he and his family will head out to California where he will start auditions for prime-time and feature films. His last airdate will be sometime in late July.
