Anna Stuart Returns as Mary Smythe
Why does some news have to be so bittersweet? Nelson Branco is reporting in the Suds Report that one of my all time favorite actresses from the Another World days, Anna Stuart, is returning to All My Children as the mother of Greenlee Smythe (Rebecca Budig). Apparently Mary is going to stay in Pine Valley until Greenlee bites the big one and joins Leo and Gillian in soap opera heaven. With a multitude of pointless characters that could be or need to be killed off, of course it is Greenlee and her many connections they choose to do in.
Let's add up all the great actors that have written off since I started watching (in no particular order and not including diceased actors): Billy Miller, Eva La Rue, Julia Barr, Cady McClain, Terri Ivens, John Callahan, Josh Duhamel, Justin Bruening, Alexa Havins, Elizabeth Hendrickson, Kelly Ripa, Mark Consuelos, Leven Rambin, Jesse McCartney, Jeff Branson, Esta TerBlanche, Kate Collins, Marj Dusay, William deVry, James Scott, Linda Dano, Finola Hughes, Michael Nader, Tanisha Lynn, Kelli Giddish, Robin Christopher, Robin Mattson, Olivia Birkelund and Marcy Walker.
I really shouldn't think about all those actors not being on the show anymore or I'll need to admit myself to Oakhaven.
