Sources are confirming the exit of actress Marcy Walker from the role of Liza Colby Chandler on “All My Children.” Walker’s departure is on the heals of Amelia Heinle’s exit from the series earlier this month. Heinle had played Walker’s onscreen sister Mia Saunders beginning in 2001.
Walker previously departed “AMC” in 1984 to switch coasts to play Eden Capwell Castillo on NBC’s “Santa Barbara” from 1984-1991. From 1993-1995, Walker played Tangie Hill on the CBS soap “Guiding Light.” Walker returned to “AMC” later that year to the role of Liza Colby of which she originated.
No last tape date or airdate has been set.
