Another DAYS Star To Exit

Leann Hunley (Anna, DAYS), who returned to Salem in June 2007 after a 21-year absence and has had precious little screen time lately is out. The actress posted the news in her guest book:

"Hello Darlings! I worked my last day on DAYS today ... Anyway, THANK YOU for all your sweet wishes and support over the last year and a half. I had a wonderful time bringing Anna back to life and will miss 'her' more than just a little."

Hunley's exit will coincide with co-star Thaao Penghlis's (Tony).

OMG! I thought it was Zuker!

Love Leanne - do not like Anna though - or at least, Do not like Hogan's or Higley's versions.

Wish her the best!

I must be on some really good drugs, because I'm watching some old Days stuff on youtube and I thought it was Eileen Davidson, then I remembered what year it was and realized that couldn't be possible. Okay, going back to 1997 now :)

What a disgusting waste. From the minute she was on screen and didn't hate Sami, it was clear the writers had no idea what the hell they were doing with her.

This hardly warranted a headline on SOD.

^ Agreed, Ponz. I'm happy they decided to recognize her exit, but this is hardly news.

It reminds me when the actor who played Bart, got major headlines in 2007 for being "killed" off.

I thought that was going to be about the actress playing Melanie.

I don't know Anna from before, but she's one of the only characters I connected with instantly because the actress was unique and fun to watch. What a waste, especially since she's familiar but not overly-connected to the current set of characters, and she can't cost that much to use.

GET EM STEPH!!

I have to hand it to SOD. They sure like to make big deals out of nothing and they do that well.

I'm stunned any attention was brought to her exit at all but, given LeAnn made a statement and it's Days news and it has been a bit boring news-wise lately, that is probably why. I mean, when LeAnn came back, her name was sort of just tossed in with all the other returning names so I expected nothing. I still think the show never wanted her back in the first place. I still recall when Thaoo returned in 2007 and how he seemed to push for it so I always felt he did just that and Hogan liked the idea so they agreed to bring her back just for the hell of it. She essentially was brought back just to bring more attention to all the return and that summer's big story. It was window dressing IMO.

I'm glad she did come back, even if it was for a little bit and an appearance here or there. I love her and the character. I'm also glad it seems she will at least make an appearance. I still can't believe she hasn't appeared ONCE since September. Ugh.

I totally thought this was Ari Zucker when I read the title of this thread. Phew!

And not only that, but was BFF with her over those letters!

Gagsville!

Tim, I agree. It's like SOD says "Y&R: FIRED!" Then you open it up and it says "Ashley got fired from Jabot" and you go "oh for cripes sake"... it sells magazines.

Agree Tim

Besides, it's not like she was on contract. IMO she was an occasional guest star

That's a good point that very few seemed to bring attention too.

As I said, I don't think they ever wanted her back. Thaoo pushed and Hogan got on board because he wanted to salvage the Tony character. She was essentially a "tack on" to the plan and it showed.

Much prefers sweevil, snarky EJ over Father Figure Fucktard Eejiot.

How sad is it that I'm only surprised that TPTB bothered to bring Anna back for the end of Tony's storyline at all?

It's such a shame that Tanna was so woefully wasted. There was loads of potential there - the two of them are really magic on screen together, more so than most of the younger, 'hotter' couples.

You're not the only one. You'd almost think the writers had forgotten that Anna even exists.
