There goes my dream of seeing soap great Susan Flannery reprise the role of unstable Dr. Laura Horton on Days of Our Lives. In an interview with TV Insider's Michael Logan, Flannery revealed she has no interest in returning to The Bold and the Beautiful or any daytime soap for that matter. Here's an excerpt:

Will you ever act again?I would do a great part if it came along in primetime or in film. But I have no desire to go back to daytime. Don’t get me wrong. I loved doing it, but I’ve had this same conversation with Finola Hughes [GH’s Anna], my other good girlfriend. In soaps, we’re in there giving it a thousand percent, because that’s how we are as professional actors, but with all the monetary constraints there is no polish. If you’re two beats off in a scene and you need to do it over again, there is simply no time. You have to settle for less than your best. To that I say, where is the art?  

Flannery may have put daytime soaps behind her, but she isn't done with primetime sudsers. She directed tonight's episode of Freeform's The Fosters, which is helmed by her former costar Joanna Johnson
