ATWT Gives Helen Wagner Send-Off
By Jillian Bowe on July 22, 2010
In an interview with TV Guide's Michael Logan, As The World Turns' executive producer Chris Goutman discusses the show's plans to honor the late Helen Wagner (Nancy). Goutman stated,
We decided not to go the traditional route in paying tribute to Nancy because she made it clear she didn't want anything fancy done," Goutman notes. "Instead, we pick up right after the ceremony with all the characters feeling like they need to do more for her. Casey takes the lead and challenges everyone to come up with a special way to honor Nancy, and that becomes our farewell episode.
