Though no one is saying anything on the record, buzz continues to swirl that little-used actor Scott Bailey
) will soon be exiting his role on Guiding Light.
As fans of Guiding Light already know, over the past year the show has pared away characters - and consequently actors - that did not fit into the show's current storytelling. The move was designed to slash the show's expenses and help keep television's longest-running serial program from going off the air.
Bailey joined Guiding Light in March 2003 as the voice of a mysterious radio program personality. It wasn't until August 20th - some five months later - that viewers got to see his face. After his initial storyline, however, Bailey's alter ego saw little in the way of screen time.
A spokesperson for Guiding Light did not respond to inquiries about Bailey's status with the show.
