The Young and the Restless actor Robert Newman has bid adieu to Genoa City.
In a Twitter video addressed to the fans, Newman revealed that his contract with the CBS soap had ended.
"I think it is appropriate now for me to finally be able to say thank you so much for letting me be a part of the legacy of this great show."
"Just to clarify, the scenes you saw Ashland dying at the hands of Nick were, in fact, my last scenes on the show, the end of my contract,"
"Shout out to the cast and crew of Young and the Restless, who are just fantastic, just wonderful people to work with,"
"I could not have been happier about it. I very much enjoyed playing the character,"
"I hope you enjoyed seeing me in the role. It was a tough transition from Richard's work for some of you."
"Again, thank you so much. It was a lovely, lovely time,"
"And maybe I will see you again one day. You never know!"
It would not be the first time an actor said he had departed a soap, only to reveal later it was untrue!
