Since this story was originally posted on November 8, Graziadei's exit has been confirmed. The actor will not renew his current contact, which expires at the end of the year. A farewell party was held on-set for Graziadei on November 30.
As a result of Graziadei's decision to leave Y&R, fans will notice that Graziadei's Daniel will not be popping up on-screen that often. It is unclear exactly how the character will be written out at this time.
This isn't the first time that the actor's future with Y&R appeared destined to come to an end. At the end of 2008, show insiders were adamant that Graziadei would be leaving the top-rated CBS soap. The actor had a series of other projects and had to reportedly pass on some non-Y&R jobs because of his contract with the show. Despite the claims four years ago, Graziadei inked a contract and stayed put in Genoa City.
In 2010, Graziadei reupped another time.
