I guess she won't be getting the kid then.
I'm sorry to see her go. I always enjoyed her character. I wonder what that means for Michael.
I'll be sad if Michael goes too. I think the actor's cute.
oh, i am sad to hear this!
Kathy is *SO TALENTED*, has such a strong work ethic...& MARCIE is an important part of the LLANVIEW community!
OLTL just gets better and better!
UPDATE: Soaps.com reported OLTL decided to not renew Kathy's contract, not the other way around.
The most dramatic way for her to leave would be that when Starr finds out her baby is alive, she decides to keep her and that sends Marcie into despair. Knowing there's nothing left for her in Llanview, she decides to go live in the same city as her brother. It would be nice to give her something appropriately meaty to do since she has been so good for OLTL for the time that she's been around.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! I hate this! She is super-talented. I'm just sad OLTL hasn't really given her much to do in the past year or so. And I'm sad that they sort of decimated her character by having her hold a sick Viki hostage at the diner in Paris and then turning her into a baby-crazed freak with a bad marriage. Wishing Kathy all the best. Hopefully, she will go back to Broadway and continue to shine.
Unfortunately, I'm not surprised by this news. Kathy Brier is very talented and underrated! I wish her well and will most definitely miss her.
Marcy on the run with 'Tommy' (/Sam) was what got me hooked on OLTL, so i am sad to see her go, but best of luck wherever she may go.
I like the actress, but praise the Lord! I really hope they don't make someone else baby hungry to take her place.
STUPID STUPID STUPID STUPID!!!
We have to be subjected to Crystal Cunt on a daily basis, but they take Kathy Brier off contract.
Keep it up OLTL and you'll be gone before GL.
This is AWFUL news!
I'm surprised she was still on. I thought the whole holding Vicki hostage storyline was to facilitate the actress leaving the role. I thought she decided a year ago to leave so I was always so surprised when I'd see her on screen. I'll miss her. I have always liked her and especially when she sings on the show.
This news makes me sad. She is such a talented actress and did some emmy worthy work last year. That being said the last 2-3 years the writers made Marcie so baby crazy that it became ridiculous after awhile. It was clear that they did not know what to do with her anymore so it wasnt much of a suprise for me.
i hope as part of her severance package, MARCIE gets to slap THE LIVIN' HELL outta SKANKY!!!!
So she gets the baby back and leaves town! i knew it.
No!!! I love Kathy Brier as Marcie. I have held a soap crush on her for years. Hopefully they will pen her a happy ending, God knows she has earned it!
This is a big loss. She's a very talented actress.
I wish her well in wherever she goes next.
Kathy will be alright. She's much too talented to be without work for long. She would fit in good as the lead of an ABC Family Show, or back on Broadway. GOOD MORNING BALTIMORE!
This sucks. Marcie is the only character I would ever want a miracle baby for.
...& think about this...
OLTL cant afford MARCIE & MICHAEL...but Frons can afford to make job offers to people @ other networks?!?!??
this SUCKS!! i am a newish OLTL viewer and i have fallen in love with kathy brier. she is FABULOUS.
why didn't they fire crystal hunt instead??
Figures, but Stacey gets to stay. That's why I hate this show. I agree with everyone who says Kathy Brier is a great talent, she truly is. She won't be out of work for long, lets hope anyway. I hear broadway calling her back.
I hate this!
Marcie is one of my favorite characters, but the writing was on the wall for her & Michael eons ago...
A soap would do good casting her. Paging Melissa or Sarah Horton to Salem, STAT!
Or, Sally Spectra could have always had a spunky niece on B&B.
Jamey, get your ass on a Wishful Casting post for her!

This news makes me very very very sad. I really hope she gets a good exit story. Her and Michael really should be able to get baby Hope and live happily ever after.
Too bad Kathy is leaving. She is obviously talented. Also, she is a refreshing change from all the anorexic, titless, whiney women in daytime, including AMC's Kendall!
P.S. If you want really good soap writing, watch BBC's EastEnders, especially the older episodes with Phil & Grant Mitchell, the Slaters, etc.
Okay,so let me get this straight....They have the money and the writers for
Random Nerdy police guy
Schyler(love Scott Clifton,but if there is a choice i'd much rather see a Marcie storyline.)
but coming up with a story for Marcie who is interwoven with every character on the canvas(not to mention can sing and act her ass off)or Michael who works in the busiest place in Llandview(and is Michael's brother) is more than Carlavati and Frons can handle. ABC should stand for ALWAYS BULLSHITTING CONSUMERS!!!!jmo.
This sucks. Kathy is an amazing actress. Amazing. There are plenty of places that Marcie could go. But I guess as long as she gets a happy ending I can be content. If she just runs away because Starr gets the baby (or worse, runs away WITH the baby), I'll be angered.
I am not really surprised. the problem with her character is her lack of chemistry with the new michael. I really think that they killed her character when they recasted her leading man...really i loved her with the Al character better......the character was tooooooooooooo glooooooom and doooom....it was just ment to end sooner rather than later.
