Kate Mansi only has a small number of days left in the soap opera world.
After four years on the NBC daytime drama, Mansi, 27, made the decision not to renew her contract to play Abigail Deveraux.
“I must say that I have thoroughly enjoyed every single beautiful and messy moment of being Abigail, and will always treasure our time together. I want to be very clear in saying that this was not a decision I took lightly. It was important for me to see Abigail through the most recent storyline, as well as through the show’s historic 50th anniversary celebration.”
Abigail finally revealed to Chad that Thomas is his son, but Chad has been brainwashed by his family.
The Wrap reports that her last episode will air in May. Mansi is looking forward to new projects.
NBC hasn’t revealed if they will recast Abigail.
We Love Soaps reports that a new casting call sounds similar to Abigail’s character, so it’s possible they’re searching for a replacement.
Peter Reckell, who played Bo, and Greg Vaughn, who played Eric, left the soap opera within the past few months.
