(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Yesterday, we reported that Barret Helms was out as Baz on ABC’s “One Life to Live,” now we can also confirm that Nafessa Williams is also out as Deanne Forbes on the drama series.
According to sources, the actress already wrapped filming and was last seen on the Tuesday, July 19 episode when Deanna received the information she needed on her mother’s whereabouts from porn producer Rick (Austin Peck), who used the information to get her to appear in a porn film with Nate Ford (Lenny Platt), who was being blackmailed by Rick after learning Rick knew about what he did to Matthew Buchanan (Eddie Alderson). After receiving the information, Deanna headed to Los Angeles and made a promise between her and Nate not to ever discuss the details of the matter to anyone else. Unfortunately for her and Nate, their film was shown during the premiere of David Vickers’ (Tuc Watkins) movie, “Vicker Man,” instead of the film he intended to show Llanview.
Williams joined the cast of “One Life to Live” beginning with the Wednesday, March 23 episode, and like Helms, despite signing a lengthy contract with the soap, was informed her cycle wouldn’t be picked up.
Keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming Soap Opera Network interview with Williams along with Helms, where the two discuss their experience on the soap and its cancellation and how the series going online may not be such a bad thing for fans.
