(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Three more actors due to exit as “All My Children” cleans house.

Brent Weber who plays Jackson Montgomery’s (Walt Willey) handsome and horny nephew, Sean, has been let go from the cast of “All My Children.” Weber began portraying Sean Montgomery on August 15, 2006. Before joining “AMC,” Weber was best known for his role on the short-lived supernatural show “Point Pleasant” which aired on FOX. Webber played “Terry” the best friend to former “AMC” actor Sam Page’s character “Jesse.”

Alec Musser who joined the cast of “AMC” after winning the 2005 season of “I Wanna Be a Soap Star” has been demoted to recurring status. The muscular actor debuted on “AMC” on August 19, 2005 and parlayed a 13-week contract into almost two years of portraying the quirky Del Henry. Musser last aired on September 27. Sources close to the actor report that Musser has most likely made his last appearance on the ABC drama despite the recurring status label.

Soap Opera Digest reports that “AMC” sources are buzzing that Jeff Branson’s exit is basically “a done deal.” The Emmy-nominated Branson has played Jonathan Lavery since June 15, 2004. Prevailing wisdom tells us that Jonathan will most likely leave town with his current love-interest, Ava – played by the Emmy-nominated Leven Rambin. Last fall, Rambin made it clear that her intention was to leave the show once her contract came to a close. The Ford Model who will turn 18 in May joined the cast of “AMC” in June 2004 as Lily Montgomery and began playing Lily’s identical half-sister, Ava Benton, on March 30, 2007.
