According to Soap Opera Digest, One Life To Live star Brittany Underwood is set to leave the show. Underwood's exit is being called, "storyline dictated" (ABC loves that word these days) and is slated for spring.
Damn, more soap firings. I think that they destroyed Langston's character and now don't know what to do with her now. But Rebecca Herbst was a legacy character and to get rid of Liz was a horrible mistake, but I don't think Langston leaving will hurt the canvas much as Liz leaving. I think that Brittany Underwood will do big things outside daytime and is really talented so I not worried about her. I wish both actresses look in future endeavors.
It seems like all the young Daytime stars are getting out, while the getting is good. They might as well, since this genre doesn't know how to realistically write for the 20-something/teenage characters, even though they try so hard to attract that demo. smh
Damn. The soaps get renewed and they either drop like flies or the shows do it for them. How is this helping Daytime, might I ask???? But I wish her the best, since the way they've written Langston is just terrible lately. She went from loving Markko to craving sex with a Ford on just about every episode. Though, it all makes me wonder...
They might be getting rid of her so that they can help accommodate the salary demands of a few RETURNING stars???????
Things that make you go "hmmmmm................"
But I Doubt BU Costs That Much Money. Her Contract Is Also Up.
I liked Langston when she was edgy and with Markko, but now the writers just don't know what to do with her. Can she take at least one of the Fords with her?
Wonder if the Exit Was A Mutual Decision Like ABC Said We Dont Want To Renew & bU Was Good with The Decision
Maybe she decided to leave show business and become a biologist......
I remember her talking about being a senior in college and having to juggle biology labs with her work on OLTL!!!
Hell, considering the current climate on daytime, I wouldn't blame her if she did abandon ship.
I don't think Brittany comes anywhere close to Rebecca Herbst when it comes to daytime stars. Langston was not a legacy character and has only been on OLTL a short time. I'm sure she had her fans but likely not as devoted or invested as Becky and her ties to the OLTL canvass of characters was not as strong as Liz's on GH. All in all not a fair comparison. I know I am not one of the people who will miss her and I'm sure OLTL will do just fine w/o her presence. Though I do wish her luck in the future.
No big loss.
I don't think anyone would dare compare her to Becky or Liz Webber in any capacity. It would be insulting to do so, since Becky's a vet and beloved soap heroine. But I do think it's strange that so many people on both ABC, NBC, and even CBS--though I could give a damn about Soap Killer Bloom--are either walking or getting the boot within days and weeks of one another. Months, I get, but days and weeks? It's one thing to clean house and/or bring in new blood, but this is becoming an everyday thing and inevitably makes me wonder, who's next???
I'll say this. OLTL has just made a bad mistake. That was the wrong character to get rid of. I rather have the Fords going away then the last of Starr's best friends, who have gone through a whole lot during their high school years.
She is really NOTHING to OLTL or DAYTIME television!
Well two things come to mine. Ron teases Tess coming out after the baby secerts come out and you know at some point Dorian and Viki will have to be feuding again
I got a feeling Tess will want Ford and something will happened between Tess and Langston aka Jared and Nash to restart Dorain vs. Viki
I don't care how it happens but I won't shed a tear when Langston is gone. That character makes my teeth hurt and hasn't been worth a sack of nickels since they had Dorian adopt her.
I would have been upset about this a year ago before they completely ruined Langston. She's become more of a plot point than a character these days. But, I hope they don't kill her off. Just send her out of town. Kristen Alderson must be looking around and thinking "damn, where did all my friends go?"
Can Gigi be next?
Why would Starr need friends, she has Hope & James to raise??? Too bad Bobby wasn't leaving with Langston.
It has been nice to watch Miss Underwood grow as an actress. I think the majority of the soaps have too many characters on canvas these days. I don't like hearing anyone has lost a job, but if someone had to go, I can understand why they chose Langston. It would be nice if Markko came back and the show reunited him with Langston before she left the show.
I think OLTL will most likely make a few more cuts in the next few months. Who will it be? Gigi? Cristian? Inez? A Ford brother or two?
This is the best news I had heard all day. I can't stand Langston and I love OLTL these days and all the other characters. Langston was just so annoying and as soon as she broke up with Markko she was worse.
I really liked Langston until they turned her into a skank. Once she started cheating on Markko, Langston was ruined for me. Let's hope one of the Ford brothers is the next to go!!
To be honest, I am glad BU is leaving. I didn't think she was that good of an actress and I still remember that scene where she was trying to be flirty with Ford with her bathing suite and I was just thinking....this is truly sad.
Maybe Langston can go live with Bitchy Bangs in Paris...
Seriously, I don't mind that she is going. I used to love Langston, but the last few months her character has kind of skeeved me out....
I had heard rumors and was hoping it wasn't true. Ugh...just hate this. I will always love Langston Wilde and I hope they don't destroy her character before she leaves.
I'm a huge fan of Brittany's and am so sad to see her go. She's a beautiful and talented young woman. I wish her much success in the future!
But I'm so sad.
^^ They already destroyed her character, hun. I guess you haven't watched in the past year!
I hope BU has sucess in whatever she chooses to do next.
I do not understand the term "storyline dictatrd" in regards to RH or BU.
Wonder if anyone at AMC will be dismissed-I mean dictated this week?
Guess Ford WON'T have to keep it in his pants for the full six months after all.......
As if he had any real chance of fulfilling her request ANYWAY.
Can't say I will miss Langston, but Brittany Underwood can actually ACT, so it's a loss for daytime either way.
I used to love Langston, when she was a tough, sarcastic, slightly odd girl who wouldn't take crap. Enter the Fords, and Starr and Langston become sex starved whining Barbies. Their characters have been neutered by the Ford Brothers. It's similar to what happens on All My Children when the character Ryan Lavery is paired with previously strong women. Even ERICA was turned into mush.
So the Fords really will be the death of OLTL. But I Ne-gress...I mean DIGRESS...I wish Brittany Underwood all the best!
DAMN YOU ABC!!
What the hell is going on?
I am not the biggest fan of Langston. But I love Ford & Langston together.
Too many disappointments in daytime lately.
