Beemer was last seen playing Shawn Brady on NBC’s “Days of our Lives.” His exit from the soap was understood to be storyline dictated, said sources. He left Salem with Martha Madison, who portrayed on-screen lady love Belle Black. He was born and raised in Eugene, Oregon.

Television credits include the recurring role of Seth on ABC’s “General Hospital” and an appearance on CBS’ “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.” He portrayed Mic Rionn, the love interest to Haylie Duff’s Ava Marchetta in the 2006 feature “Material Girls.” The film also starred mega-star Hilary Duff. He made his television debut in the MTV series “Undressed.”

The actor began taping on Tuesday, May 27. He will first air on Wednesday, July 2.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Gay Pride and Cyndi Lauper are coming to CBS’ “As The World Turns” in July as the soap takes one step closer in showing same sex relationships in daytime.

On May 27, Lauper stopped by for a taping of the July 3 episode of “World Turns” for a benefit concert at Yo’s to promote her new dance album Bring Ya to the Brink (available in stores now) and her annual True Colors tour, which started on Saturday, May 31.

In the episode she will perform the songs “Into the Nightlife,” and the classic anthem “True Colors.” “Nightlife” is the new single off the “Brink” album.

In addition to singing, Lauper will dance with Luke (Van Hansis) and Noah (Jake Silbermann). Luke is there to interview Lauper for the college paper.

In an interview with EW.com’s SOAP WATCH column, Lauper revealed that she has been closely following the dynamics of Luke and Noah for awhile now and discussed the pacing of the relationship between the two.

“They’re taking their time and struggling with the heart issues, which is even more endearing than just being like the straight couples, half-naked and having sex all over the place. The best way to people is through the heart, and that’s why I think it’s kind of interesting the way they’ve done it. It’s about love.”

“As The World Turns” airs weekdays on CBS and can be watched anytime on CBS.com. Check local listings.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Five characters exit Pine Valley as “All My Children” moves into the hot and heavy months of summer.

Leven Rambin, 18, will last air on “All My Children” on Tuesday, June 10. The Emmy-nominated actress joined the cast of “AMC” in May 2004 as Lily Montgomery and began playing Lily’s identical half-sister, Ava Benton, in March 2007. Rambin taped her last scenes as Lily during an “AMC” location shoot in Long Island on May 19; Ava’s last appearance on the show was during Pine Valley’s Go Red Fashion Show in February. The young actress announced her decision to not re-sign with the show in the current issue of Soap Opera Weekly..

Multiple sources are reporting that Billy Miller has been let go from “AMC.” Miller started his stint in Pine Valley as Wes, the bartender who would soon be revealed to be sociopath Richie Novak, sister of Annie Lavery (Melissa Claire Egan). Opal’s (Jill Larson) ominous tarot card reading along with a long string of very bad deeds going unpunished seemed to foretell this bad boy’s faith months ago. Miller began playing the role of Richie Novak in August 2007. The handsome young actor will tape his last scenes as Richie in the not too distant future; do not expect Mr. Novak to make a quiet exit.

Charles Parnell who began playing Derek Frye in September 2005 last aired in the role this past March. The role, previously played by William Christian from 1991 to 2005, will not be recast. In the upcoming weeks, look for Jesse Hubbard, played by Darnell Williams, to step up to the plate and take on the job of Pine Valley’s newest Chief of Police.

Cady McClain last airs in her short-term stint as Dixie Cooney Martin’s ghost on Thursday, June 12. When asked about a potential longer Pine Valley stay for McClain in the future, “AMC” executive producer Julie H. Carruthers responds that she’d never rule it out.
