Jamey Giddens at DC is reporting that Daniel Cosgrove’s been let go and Shawn Christian is seriously considering quitting.
I had heard elsewhere that Daniel Cosgrove is leaving the show, so I suspect that one is true and it makes sense with all the returns happening to the show. I never warmed to Aiden; part of it was that they didn’t give him enough screen time for us to care that much about him. I never liked the storyline where his son did the murder blah blah blah….
As for the other one, can we encourage him to do so? His character is a bit of a bully and hard to take. I like the actor more than most do but I am tired of “Daniel to the rescue”. It does seem like they are heading back towards Eric and Nicole (hooray!) and of course Daniel’s children are MIA from the show right now too. I hope he goes and this will make room for returns and new characters who can really shine.
oh this would be great news, i have hated shawn christian’s terrible acting since day one. lol he’s nice to look at, but that’s about it. lol
Mixed news for me. I love Daniel Cosgrove, and I like Aiden, especially as a love interest for Hope. But I agree with Freeman that they really haven’t made him a prominent enough character for it to really seem like a huge loss. I’m surprised they’d let him go, though, as it seems like Haiden has a huge fan response. Maybe that’s just because I follow Kristian Alfonso on Twitter, and she posts a lot of photos of stuff fans have sent them. He was also their only lead acting prenom this year. But someone’s got to go to make room for all these returns, right? I think I’ve been crystal clear about how I feel about Daniel as a character lately, and I would love to see him leave. I feel like Shawn Christian’s acting is fine, not ruining the show or anything but with very rare exception not enhancing anything either.
Shawn Christian has only been good for a short period of time and that was when he was in scenes with Eileen Davidson.
^^ Eileen Davidson brings the best out of everyone. Remember, even before she made Shawn Christian watchable, she sustained long and successful pairings opposite the likes of Drake Hogestyn, Ronn Moss, and Don Diamont.
