ATWT's Cady McClain Cut?

Do budget cuts call for the end of Rosanna?

Is McClain Going, Going, Gone -- or Not?

According to show insiders, Cady McClain (Rosanna Cabot, pictured here with ATWT co-star Hunt Block, Craig) will leave As The
World Turns in early 2004. It may surprise many viewers to know that the
highly-profiled McClain has never been on contract with the CBS soap. Since McClain's addition to the As The World Turns cast in April 2002, the actress has always been on recurring status - even though she's been seen on-air more often than some contract players.

The reason for McClain's exit, say show sources, is the show's current budget crunch.  Or so, Soap Opera Weekly reported last week.
Prior to joining As The World Turns, McClain spent 13 years portraying Dixie
Cooney Martin on ABC's All My Children. ABC Daytime president Brian Frons is
reportedly interested in having McClain return to the network. How to craft a
return - should the need arise -- is a tricky situation. McClain's AMC
character was killed off-screen in a car crash along with an unborn child in May
2002. While soap opera characters frequently rise from the dead, another popular
AMC character was recently resurrected and some fear too many "back from the
dead" storylines might be - pardon the expression - overkill.

In a statement, McClain states that she "can't comment" on the reports of
her exit at this time. Likewise, spokespeople for CBS and ABC have been
tightlipped about the actress' future with their respective networks, although our sources at As the World Turns say that there is probably less to this story than meets the eye. Before we all go flying off the handle, let's sit tight and see what develops. We have a sneaking suspicion that McClain will remain in Oakdale.  Stay tuned.
