Posted Sunday, October 09, 2005 10:48:13 AM
This week, All My Children's Dragon will finally be slain. And with The Dragon's demise also comes the end of actor Lamman Rucker
's (Garret Williams
) run with the show.
This marks the second time that one of Rucker's soap characters has met with an untimely demise. In October 2003 -- nearly two years to the day of his AMC exit -- Rucker's character on As the World Turns was pushed through an upstairs window resulting in a fall to his death.
It should come as no surprise that Rucker is being written out of the show. After all, truly sinister characters rarely stay around for a long time. Rucker's stint on All My Children was never intended to be long-term, however, some fans' hopes were raised earlier this year with the show extended Rucker's originally agreed upon contract.
The former semi-pro basketball player made his AMC debut on July 4th
. He makes his exit this week.
