All My Children Lets Go of Aiden Turner

at . Comments

First, Jennifer Morrison on House.

Now, Aiden Turner on All My Children.

The long-time soap star confirmed to Soap Opera Digest that he's been let go as Aidan Devane from the daytime drama. It's a role he's portrayed since 2002.

"After November 6, no more Aidan Devane," the actor said. "I had a meeting with [producer] Julie [Hanan Carruthers], and she said, 'I hate to tell you this, but I have to give you your notice.' I was shocked."

We're guessing many All My Children fans feel the same way. We're also guessing it won't take Turner long to find a new gig.

Vanessa Bennett Cortlandt: Palmer, come on. It's a perfectly understandable concern. I mean, nobody knows what the future will hold. A meteor could drop on the Valley Inn tonight and kill us all.
Palmer Cortlandt: Well, that's a cheery thought.
Vanessa Bennett Cortlandt: Oh. And what would happen to Leo then?
Palmer Cortlandt: Well, he'd be dead. I mean, a meteor, you know.
