HomeTVAll My ChildrenAmanda Baker Confirms Exit Regan Cellura October 10, 2008 22 Comments We brought you the news of Amanda Baker‘s (Babe, All My Children) departure a few weeks back and now the actress has confirmed her exit to Soap Opera Digest. Baker tells the mag that she is "going out with a bang." Will Babe perish in the big tornado event for Sweeps? Will she be re-cast yet again? RUMORS have hit the internet that Alicia Leigh Willis (ex-Courtney, General Hospital) MAY be the next Babe. Tamara Braun just joined All My Children and is close friends with Willis. Will Tams and ALW be reunited? Weigh in! 22 Responses season1217 October 10, 2008 “going out with a bang.” ________________________ That’s the only thing Babe was good at and good for! A re-cast is unacceptable! Kill the pig! Kill the pig! Kill the pig! I’m not joking, either! ________________________ //**It’s the writing, stupid!**\\ Log in to Reply terrifictam October 10, 2008 I absolutely love Tamara and Alicia’s friendship and how Carly and Courtney wer bffs on General Hospital. That said I don’t want Babe recasted (again)! If Amanda Baker is out they should just kill the character off. Babe hasn’t been the same since Alexa left. Just be done with the character and let Jaccob Young have an Emmy worthy storyline. Log in to Reply elle October 10, 2008 I think this is it. per the magazine, she dies in JR’s arms, in the chapel after they’re married. Mind you, Jesse died in Angie’s arms, too… but I think this is it- I liked Amanda too. I loved JR/Babe but I agree, it’ll give Jacob some great material. Log in to Reply Meg October 10, 2008 Please say no! Alicia’s courtney was the only character on any soap that I could NOT STAND! She was probably the worst character ever and having seen the actress in other roles I know it wasn’t just the character, it was the actress herself. Tamara deserved a way better counterpart and gh never gave her one. The only thing I can say is that because Willis was in the role Tamara definately stood out even more in their scenes. The character babe was never very likable but was at least watchable with the first actress. I say kill her off and be done with it. Log in to Reply Luke Kerr October 10, 2008 ALW is very talented but why can’t this show be without Babe for a while? I don’t understand why the show MUST HAVE BABE. On a funnier note…I can see it now…kung fu barbie Babe! lol Log in to Reply Beth October 10, 2008 ALW as Babe?!?!?!?! Just…kill me now. Log in to Reply Regan Cellura October 10, 2008 The recast was a RUMOR that was out there… take it with a grain of salt. This is the world of soaps though, dying in someone’s arms means nothing. Log in to Reply Jamie October 10, 2008 I’d love to see Alicia Leigh Willis on AMC, but not as Babe. I think Babe should be left off canvas until/if Alexa ever decides to return. With Amelia Heinle at Y&R, I’d rather see Alicia Leigh Willis come to AMC as Mia. Fusion will be short handed, so she can return from California. Then, maybe, AMC could acutally address the fact that Frankie and she share a child out there, somewhere. Mia might just be what the Frankie/Randi pairing needs to spice it up. Mia could return to Fusion, and Randi could end up as her personal assistant. Then Mia finds out her assitant is dating the father of her child. Hmmm, now that would be good! Log in to Reply elbugten October 10, 2008 No, Babe’s death needs to be permanent, at least for awhile. No one else will work in that role except Alexa Havins. As for ALW, ITA w/ Meg. Recasting (again) would be a horrible mistake. R.I.P. Babe Carey Chandler Chandler Chandler Almost Chandler. Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens October 10, 2008 Oh NO please keep Mia open for Amelia! I’m hoping she will announce her exit from Y&R ANY SECOND! Log in to Reply season1217 October 10, 2008 I don’t want to hear for a while. Let Babe stay dead PERMANENTLY! Alexa Havins needs to stay by her husband’s and that dumb car’s side! NO MORE BABE EVER! ________________________ //**It’s the writing, stupid!**\\ Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens October 10, 2008 Alexa Havins needs to stay by her husband’s and that dumb car’s side! **** :p Log in to Reply elle October 10, 2008 please, no Alexa Havins. If that’s my choice, let the character stay dead. What I want to know now, is which character who dies, and there’s supposed to be more than just Babe, one of them lingers, the exec producer hinted. maybe in ghost form? Log in to Reply Courtney fan4life October 10, 2008 ALW is amazing BUT i dont want her to play a character I HATE after playing a character i loved. Courtney ruled!!! Babe needs yo stay dead! Log in to Reply gush900 October 10, 2008 I think judy blye wilson should retire from casting.Because these past couple years the recasts have been a debacle.From sabine singh to amanda baker.Why im on the topic of recasts why in the world would brian frons big becky back for a year they shouldve had her sign a long term contract.I think amc and frons knew becky budig was leaving thats why tamara braun is joining. Log in to Reply weareclouds October 10, 2008 Oh god no. If ALW is Babe. It’ll be even worse. Log in to Reply Courtney fan4life October 10, 2008 weareclouds you need to separate your hate for a character from an actress. You could hate the character of courtney BUT ALW was an amazing actress. For example i HATE LIZ but Rebbeca is a good actress. And I HATE LULU but JMB is a good actress. Log in to Reply SandraJea October 11, 2008 Keep ALW as far away from amc as you can. amc is the only soap that i watch and if she comes on i may just quit watching. it was bad enough having to watch her on gh i don’t want to see her on amc. Log in to Reply Courtney fan4life October 11, 2008 it disgusts me when ppl cant separate their hate for a character from actress. its disgusting. Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens October 11, 2008 I loved Courtney until she cheated on Jax like a wild dog with Nikolas and messed up my Nikolas and Emily! Adore Alicia Leigh though, she’s still my little Ali Fowler from AW! LOL Log in to Reply season1217 October 11, 2008 Will all due respect, I hated Courtney! I couldn’t stand her or Jamey’s Tamara’s version of Carly (well, I just hate Carly). All I remember about them is those two cackling hens sitting on the couch in the penthouse talking about how awful AJ was. The irked the hell out of me! ________________________ //**It’s the writing, stupid!**\\ Log in to Reply Jamie October 10, 2008 lol, Jamey. Unless AMC or New York has a job for Thad (Boyd was pointless to begin with, don’t bring him back too! lol), I don’t think Amelia will be going anywhere.
