Julie Pinson will leave Days of our Lives in the next few weeks.
According to a source on set, the actress is being written out as part of the show's continued efforts to trim its budget. The move is controversial, however, because the decision to write out Billie was made by the show's interim writers, who are substituting for the show's regular writers while they strike.
In 2004, Pinson appeared for three months on The Young and the Restless before beginning her stint on Days of Our Lives.
A final airdate has not yet been announced for the actress, as a series spokesperson said:
"Julie is still at work. We do not comment on contracts."
