Susan Haskell Reportedly Leaving ‘One Life to Live’
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — According to reports, two-time Daytime Emmy Winner Susan Haskell (Marty Saybrooke) has been let go by "One Life to Live." When pressed for a statement, a spokesperson for the show reminds Soap Opera Network that "we don't comment on rumors."
Haskell originated the character of gang rape victim Marty Saybrooke in 1992. After leaving in 1997, she made brief in returns in 2004 and 2005, before returning full-time in 2008, replacing Christina Chambers in the role. In 1994 and again in 2009, she won Daytime Emmy Awards for her portrayal of Marty. Haskell is married to her former "One Life" co-star Thorsten Kaye (Patrick Thornhart), whom she also appeared with on "Port Charles" in 2001. Her other television roles include "JAG" and "The Good Shepherd."
A reason for her potential exit has not been determined, although given Haskell's recent lack of airtime and storyline, it appears the show may have been uncertain what to do with Marty, therefore writing her into a corner. Look for Haskell to continue to air through at least through the month of April, however, when Marty gets caught up in some more drama with several other Llanview residents.
