Emmy-nominated Kelli Giddish will exit the role of Di Henry later this year.

The actress was brought on as a possible recast of Dixie Martin, but the character languished without story for much of her time in All My Children.

As Soap Central reports, two years ago, Giddish took the show by storm. Her character was revealed - or rather believed - to be the supposedly-dead Dixie Martin. But that story line quickly fizzled and Giddish's character was relegated to the back burner.

Giddish's addition to the All My Children cast in March 2005 was met with mixed reviews. Fans were initially skeptical of a newcomer being hired to tackle the role of Dixie Martin. Adding to the controversy was the fact that Giddish is younger in real-life than Jacob Young, the actor who portrays the character that was supposed to be her on-screen son.

Still, viewers were taken by Giddish's on-screen performance. So were the actress' peers: Giddish received a Daytime Emmy pre-nomination for Outstanding Younger Actress in 2006.

But now she'll be leaving the show. We'll let you know her next destination.
