The limited run of a high profile ABC could come to a close this fall, hints a setside source. Perhaps powers-that-be (or the actress herself) realized that the writer botcher her long-awaited return?

Fuck. This is SO Andrea Evans. This shouldn't even be a BI.

Either Andrea Evans or Susan Haskell definately. Andrea was the first one who sprung to mind though although then there was Haskell...I've been hearing rumors on the internet that one of them was going to go eventually this Fall. The only other high profile ABC Return was Genie Francis but it was always known that her run would be short and whatnot.

As I think about it more its really a toss up between both of them. If the actress actually realized that her return was botched as the BI said, I mean that still really doesn't help matters(although I've liked Tina's return and Marty's off/on to a certain extent).

Sad that the return was botched in the opinion of the actress in question. :(

There is one thing, maybe its me trying to create false hope for myself or something, but there's one thing that makes me wonder if this ISN'T Andrea:

She might hold the role of Tina closer to her heart or just has her own opinion of what Tina should be(which if she does I think thats great for her), BUT, she put up with so much while she was on Passions as Rebecca for 8 years, would she really get upset about the Mendorra stuff, as terrible as it was? Again maybe its just me trying to hope its not her.

I'm holding out some small hope that it's either Genie Francis or Susan Haskell, but as soon as I read it, my gut told me it was Andrea, unfortunately. Tina's return has been panned majorly by both critics and fans.

I hope it's not Tina. I'm loving how Tina is now involved with Tess. Tina being locked in the secret room with Vickers will be a hoot.

Yes it could be Evans as her return was botched, but her return was always to be short term too. Her contract was only short term and some sites only list her as recurring.

Sarah Brown is the actress that came to my mind when I read it.

^^Didn't Tuc Watkins leave the show again?

ETA: Never mind I realized they were referring to Tina's dog.

Of course I am not as upset about Evans as all of you. I loved her as Tina until Karen Witter came on. Karen Witter came on and made that role her own for 4 years and won over many fans who said Evans could not be replaced. I would have much rather had her back.

It could honestly be any number of recently returned ABC actresses.

I actually did think Genie Francis because

.

But Andrea Evans and Susan Haskell both make sense too. In particular Andrea Evans since the whole thing is a flop.

In terms of Evans status the show the cast list that runs every Friday lists the cast in alphabetical order for contract then the guest stars so I list her as Contract. I think she just signed a short term contract which is still a contract.

I don't think it's Genie.... in fact I think they added a few dates for her in Oct.
Plus, she's off to do a Hallmark movie soon, so she wouldn't have hung around.

Sarah Brown was originally a year and maybe they decided not to continue. One can hope. I think she's a great actress but this character is not working.

Tina... was my first thought, but I'd really have to go with Susan Haskell. Tina could be resurrected and spun in another area. But, Marty is in a corner now with Todd.

Andrea Evans. As far as I'm concerned, she's simply playing Rebecca on OLTL.

I really hope it is not Tina as well. I will agree there was a sort of disconnection between what Tina was and what we have been seeing but that is not something that isn't easily fixed. That's the beauty of it, Carlivati did very little to ruin the character, it's just that Tina did very little over all. I hope it is not Evans. It took too much to get her back. She needs to be involved in the storylines more-- they are really making her all about herself but in a way where she doesn't have her own storyline, whenever she interacts with others in their SL it is all about herself. I hope it is not Evans!!

I could see this being Sarah Brown, I mean Claudia has been a huge failure imo and many agree.

The girl who does Soap Talk for A Channel in Canada mentioned something about Andrea staying. I forget the exact words she said though.

Now thats good news, sure hope she IS staying. If its not her, then I could definately see it being Susan Haskell. I mean, depending on how far Ron really takes this Todd/Marty stuff, she could have not liked it or something.

Sarah Brown? Well, it says "limited" run/return. I don't think Sarah's was ever intended to be short-term, was it?

I went to Sarah Brown's event at FCW and she not only mentioned several times that her contract is up in January but she didn't sound to me like she was planning to stay beyond that. So I don't think it's her.

I hope this isn't too off topic but on the subject of Sarah I think she's gonna be gone eventually either way, even though now I'm leaning to this being Susan Haskell. Eventually, the whole Zaccharra clan will be out at GH and a new mob clan will be in.

I liked Sarah previously but Claudia is too ridiculous. She serves no purpose.
