ALL MY CHILDREN's Hubbard clan will soon be minus one member. Shannon Kane -- who joined the canvas in October 2008 as Jesse's secret daughter, Natalia -- will be exiting the soap. "Shannon did not wish to extend her contract," confirms a spokesperson for AMC. "Natalia leaves the canvas on Friday, February 4."
Soaps In Depth just spoke with AMC co-headwriter Donna Swajewski, who had this to say about Kane's exit from Pine Valley. "She leaves, but she is going to come back and forth to the show," explains the scribe. "We're going to keep writing her. She's leaving on her choice to go to film, but... we love her, and she will not leave our family."
