|How do you feel about ATWT's decision to recast Dallas?
Poll Posted: February 1st, 2007
Little is known of Franklin at this time. A search of previous credits for the actor came up empty. A spokesperson for As the World Turns was unavailable for comment.
McLaughlin, meanwhile, joined the ATWT cast in June 2006. McLaughlin was a newcomer to daytime himself, but he had previously appeared in two made-for-television movies and guest starred in several primetime drama series. In addition to his television work, McLaughlin has also graced the silver screen on several occasions.
The recast was brought on by a decision to "age" Dallas.
McLaughlin last airs on February 14th. Franklin bows later in the month on February 26th.
