Forget the off-set drama surrounding Van Hansis, or at least his character of Luke and his lack of kissing Noah in six months on As the World Turns.
According to AfterElton.com, the actor at least isn't going anywhere; he has signed a new contract with the show.
Jake Silbermann, however, is still a recurring character. He will continue as such for now, meaning he isn't signed to a contract like Hansis. But sources say there are no plans to get rid of the character of Noah any time soon. Thank goodness.
