Trevor St. John OUT at One Life to Live; Says He Wanted to Stay Beyond Contract!






While Trevor St. John's (Todd) contract being up soon at One Life to Live has been common knowledge, the actor has confirmed he's out at the end of his current cycle, despite his assertions that he wanted to stay! Here's St. John's statement from his website:

I want to let you know that my current contract on One Life to Live is coming to an end and my last shooting day on the show will likely come the week of July 18th. Although I expressed an interest in continuing to perform on the show beyond the aforementioned date the producers have decided they'd rather press on without me. I don't think I can adequately express my gratitude to all of you who have supported me for the last eight years. It's been my great honor and pleasure to play the character of Todd. And I can only hope that I served you well and that I did you proud. I've also enjoyed the pleasure of meeting many of you in person through the years and I hope we have the opportunity to meet again as my career progresses. But to all of you who have been there for me in person or in spirit -- I thank you.

Your's truly,

Trevor

I love TSJ and he was brilliant on the show as Todd and I enjoyed watching him.
But since the show is ending regardless, I am OVER THE MOON about Roger coming back because he IS Todd Manning in all the ways that made him Todd.

While TSJ is a brilliant actor, he played Todd more comical and it was hard for me to believe that he was the Todd that both gang raped Marty in College but was a wonderful father.

RH as Todd had a way of playing both the darker and lighter side - in a dark comedic way.

I think it does the role of Todd justice and I am so happy that both amazing talented actors have been on our screen for this long.

It's simply wonderful.

Anyways, that's my spiel
~Peace!

Damn, it pains me to see Trevor getting the notorious Davetta Sherwood treatment!! Trevor was one of the FEW daytime recasts that I have enjoyed, so of course they had to fire him!! I have thoroughly enjoyed Trevor's presence on OLTL and wish they weren't so willing to throw him under the bus just to accommodate Roger Howarth. It's not right. Why do the GOOD ones always have to go?

I guess that means we know who the real Todd is. I wish they could have kept this casting news quiet until old and new Todd's identities were revealed on screen.

Frankly, I'm fine with this. I've never been a particular fan. But I'm sorry for his fans. If he's taping through July, though, he'll be on into the fall, so it's not like he'll be leaving super-early.

Yep, it never fails when these soaps get the original actor back on their shows they turn around and kick off the actor that took over the role and did a heck of a job. I am going to miss TSJ since RH would have never come back to OLTL if ATWT had not been cancelled.

I'm happy about this. As much as I love Trevor, Roger IS Todd. Now, they can focus the last 4 months of the show on who Todd should truly be with...Blair or Tea.

I hope TSJ is todd and him and Tea leave Llanview

Maybe Blair hooks up with RH's character

OMFG, now it really PAINS me that Susan Haskell's final scenes were wasted on FAKE Todd!!!! Please bring her back for one final PROPER goodbye episode, OLTL!

I am glad that Roger is the real Todd but still bitter about Marty's exit.

Frank Valentini this is some FUCKING BULLSHIT. He has no use for him now that Howarth is back. Trevor was great as Todd screw Howarth he wouldnt be here if ATWT wasnt cancelled.

I think there is room on the canvas for both men but that's just my opinion.

This is absolute bullshit!

I'm not interested in seeing this horrid re write that TSJ's Todd isn't the real Todd. IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!

Not to mention TSJ is WAY BETTER actor then Roger. Yeah I said it. Roger came back and he clearly forgot how to act.

And to be honest, after Trevor leaves, I think I will be done with this show. I will watch the finale but I refuse to watch this STUPID storyline.

I am watching 4 years so I only know Trevor in the role. I am not surprised though. This Todd is good with Tea so I am thinking he is going to go off with her although I am not sure now because in today's show I had a feeling they were killing their romance.

I have a feeling they have decided to reunite Blair with Todd (RH VERSION).
I saw an old show and Blair/Todd RH were more of a super couple. I never saw that with Trevor. Trevor was better with Tea. Although I have never seen Tea with rh version of Todd. I figured one or the other would have to go.

This sort of reminds me of Face off with John Travolta. I wonder where this is going?

I'll be the first to admit that I'm a late convert to OLTL (when being able to watch both coasts' feeds allowed me to watch both ATWT and OLTL) so I only know RH as nu-Paul Ryan, but I don't find it hard to believe at all that the Todd that thew his pregnant 'daughter' down a flight of stairs gang raped Marty back in College.

Also, the way they've played RH's character, has me convinced he is not Todd afterall - an unexpected double-fakeout. He's so-called memories of being Todd come off as brainwashing... repeating mantras and seeing still images of people in 'his' life instead of recalling the events themselves.

There also isn't a ton left to be filmed come late July, so it's not out of the question that the for-reals Todd could die when Trevor leaves. (Especially since it looks like Clint isn't going to be dying any time soon.)

My problem is RH didn't give a flying flip about this part when he trashed it, failed in primetime, and went to a different show. Now that its canceled and he didn't get anything in pilot season, he is back, and they throw TSJ away like dirty bath water. I know the ratings have been good lately, but I am quite certain that has nothing to do with RH, so just like GV and VMG I do not get all of this worship of these actors who left the show because they wanted to make it big, fizzled out, and come running back. If they bring ratings, I have no problem with tptb moving heaven and earth for them, but they HAVEN'T and that is what bothers me!

I have no idea how I am going to make it the last few months without my favorite actor in all of daytime. What about ToddnTea? This is BS!

Missed Opportunity! OLTL could have had us playing the Which-is-the-real-Todd guessing game up until the very end. Ultimately, for me, it would have had to be RH because I'm stuck in a 1990s timewarp when it comes to this show. Those were its glory days, as far as I'm concerned, but KSJ did a fine job holding over until the real one came back.

And the worst of all...

Everything we've seen with TSJ's Todd will be a lie.

Todd/Blair, Todd/Tea,Sam, Death sentence...etc...

And so many plot holes and questions.
Why would Todd care if Starr was sleeping with Cole if that's not his daughter?

How would he remember everything that happened during RH's run during the Death row scenes (the montage?

How does he know the history between Marty and Todd?

How can Tea and Blair not notice that they are sleeping with a different man?

Sorry Ron, this is bullshit, it's a plot driven mess, that I REFUSE to watch.

Alston, I have to skip the other posts for a minute to LAUGH and say I really didn't like Davetta Sherwood as Lily. Once upon a time I watched Y&R everyday and there was something about that young woman that didn't work for me as Lily or as a member of the Winters family.

I always wanted her to go on to other things because I truly felt it was miscasting rather than a lack of talent.

Hands down Trevor is a better actor. Howarth was boring on ATWT and I didn't miss his ass as Todd. Trevor has been here since 2003 and it's stupid to kick him out because Howarth is back when the show is ending in a few months.

Clearly the FAKE Todd played by TSJ had the real Todd's memories programmed into him through hypnotism and brainwashing.

Think both actors have demonstrated amazing talent as Todd. Recent Todd/Jack scenes especially memorable. Just hate to think of it all coming to an end.

Oh really?

And did they train him to have sex like RH's Todd too?

That's bullshit, and poor excuse for writing.

THIS is why soaps are dying. Brainwashing and hypnotism? Really?!

Maxsmom--

I didn't care for her all that much either, but she had more chemistry with Michael G., who plays Daniel, and she was a FAR more interesting actress than Christel is. I remember finding her wooden and unnatural. Ideally, they would have gotten rid of BOTH of them and brought on someone more suitable.

I'm so sadden by this news that I'm having trouble typing this comment. I haven't been this upset over a soap character/actor leaving a show since Gillian's death on AMC.

This is so wrong, it's evil. I remember when RH was in the role and he chose to leave, if he didn't need a job, he probably would not even give OLTL a second thought and yet this is the person they want to get rid of TSJ for.

It is one thing if RH was fired, but he chose to leave, so this negativity towards TSJ for doing his job and doing it incredibly well is is wrong, no ifs, ands, or buts about it.

RC and FV are wrong for trying to insult my intelligence with this real Todd storyline. Did we forget Dani's paternity test that proved she and TSJ's Todd were a genetic match? How can he be a fake? DNA does not lie. They can't say he faked the test, cause Tea had it done without his knowledge. So is Dani TSJ's Todd daughter, then how can he not be the same person Tea slept with on the island? As much as I dislike Frons, it is dumb, politics driven, nonsensical story lines like this that is killing daytime. Unless RC and FV do right by TSJ and my girl FL, I am done with daytime and will be 100% okay with ever Frons does to his ABC Daytime line-up. Long-time and dedicated actors deserve better than this foolishness.
