Maybe also because of their demanding schedules?

There was an article discussing (partly) this topic.
Yeah, that last part about the prime time execs not wanting to deal with soap actors' schedules matches with what I've heard Ari Z say at a 2010 event. According to her explanation about this, even to do one epi of a prime time gig, no matter how small the part, the actor has to be available to them for a 5 day block as they aren't sure when they are going to want to shoot your stuff or reshoot stuff, etc.

Ari says for obvious reasons that limits them and I can see why. The chances of that hitting a 'dark week' at Days are probably slim and what if the shooting schedule were to change to a 'non-dark week'? Days isn't going to write around that and I can see why prime time shows are hesitant to go after soap actors knowing this. Why would they want that hassle if they don't have to deal with it?

But even once they leave they don't seem to be able to get these roles.
