Though it has yet to be confirmed by the network, soap
has learned that Christian Campbell
) has been released from his contract with All My Children.
Campbell took on the role of Bobby Warner in March 2004, a role played previously by Brian Gaskill
from 1995 to 1997. Since that time, Campbell has had little in the way of story -- even when he received ample on-screen time. Bobby's dealings since reappearing earlier this year have included trying to repair his strained marriage to Anita Santos and sheltering Erica Kane
during her brief days as a Las Vegas showgirl.
Campbell will soon be seen in the Showtime movie musical Reefer Madness
. The movie also stars his sister, actress Neve Campbell. Campbell shouldn't have too much difficulty finding post-All My Children work. To date, the actor has appeared in at least a dozen primetime television spots as well as a handful of movies.
While Campbell's days in Pine Valley have apparently drawn to a close, there is reportedly no indication that the same fate will befall Campbell's on-screen co-star, Natalia Cigliuti
A show spokesperson declined comment, saying that it is not network policy to discuss actors' contracts. Campbell is expected to last air in January.
