It's only been a little over five months since Ximena Duque's fiery character, Blanca, showed up on Rafe's doorstep, but the actress and character are already departing Salem.
According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest, Duque's last airdate will be on Monday, November 21.
Though her time in Salem was short, the Colombian-born actress still has strong ties to the soap world -- televovelas, that is. She began her career in 2006 with a starring role on Telemundo's Decisiones and later gained international recognition for her dramatic role as a bodyguard in the popular soap Corazón Valiente.
Duque was originally brought onto DAYS along with Mexican star Alma Delfina (ex-Adriana Hernandez) to help boost the show's Latino appeal. Rumor has it A Martinez's (Eduardo Hernandez) step down to recurring status affected both actresses' futures on the show.
