Dano exits ABC, will continue at QVC, and be advocate.

Dano will Continue with QVC and her Work with Alzheimer's

Last week we reported that One Life to Live's Linda Dano (Rae) would not be renewing her contract with ABC. 

Dano, who returned to One Life to Live as Dr. Gretel Rae Cummings in 1999 after a 19-year absence, is exiting the canvas once again. "I will not be at ABC after my contract expires in June," stated Dano in the official statement we published last week.

The actress, who started in primetime and film before evolving into daytime, wants to return to her career roots. "It's time for me to spread my wings and try new things," she continued. "I'd like to explore more opportunities in talk television and theater."

Dano will continue her retail relationship with QVC, as well as her fashion columns and her advocacy against Alzheimer's.

An ABC statement corroborates her departure. "Linda Dano is an extraordinary actress whose contributions to the industry are unrivaled," the network expresses. "Story line dictates her departure from the ABC Daytime lineup in early 2004. We wish her the very best in all of her future endeavors."
