Online rumors have it that Sydney Penny may be out at All My Children and that it should be confirmed in the next issue of Soap Opera Digest.
Penny returned to the role of All My Children's Julia Santos Keefer in 2005. Unfortunately, shortly after her return it became apparent to fans that All My Children wasn't sure exactly what to do with the character of Julia without the love of Julia's life Noah Keefer, portrayed by Keith Hamilton Cobb, on the show.
The character of Julia floated in and out of several storylines and was paired for a short time with Tad Martin's son Jamie Martin. The pairing was brought to an abrupt halt when Justin Bruening decided to leave the east coast sudser and pursue primetime opportunities, landing the lead role in the upcoming TV show Knight Rider.
A small controversy erupted amongst online fans when the show's writers had Julia allow Jonathon Lavery, the murderer of her brother-in-law Edmund, to move into Wild Wind mansion along with a bunch of other "homeless" characters in need of a place to live.
Word has it that Julia's departure from Pine Valley will coincide with the revelation that the young child Kathy she cares for is in fact Tad and Dixie's long lost daughter.
