Casting News: ABC Lets Some Faves Go!

All three ABC soap operas will be letting a popular character go with in the next few months. General Hospital's Logan, played by Josh Duhon, will exiting the show this summer. One Life to Live's Forbes March, who plays Nash, will be killed off on June 5. And All My Children's Levin Rambin (Lily/Ava) is set to leave June 10.

However, in my opinion, the appearance of Cyndi Lauper (!) on July 3 on As the World Turns almost makes up for it. This Cindy (along with Cyndi) is one girl who wants to have fun!

On The Young and the Restless, Cynthia Sikes comes to Genoa City on June 19 as Sabrina's mom, Zara, and methinks she'll be stirring up her fair share of trouble. Finola Hughes (on/off Anna, GH) was originally cast in the role, but competing network ABC asked her not to.

For the time being, Stefano DiMera will remain in a coma on Days of Our Lives. Portrayer Joseph Mascolo is said to be very disppointed by the news. Maybe The Bold and the Beautiful is paying attention - Massimo Marone, anyone?
