Actor let go from Young & the Restless after 40 years
Long-running performer is out after US soap decides to head in another direction.
US actor Doug Davidson has revealed he is out of daytime soap The Young and the Restless after 40 years with the show.
Davidson, who plays Detective Paul Williams, told Soaps.com the show was headed in another direction.
“My contract was not renewed in January, I went on recurring, but just until they had new people in place. I have only 2 shows that haven’t aired and no dates. So, as far as I know, I am gone,” he said.
After a fan took to Twitter to ask, “They haven’t let you go, have they?” he responded, “It seems so.”
Davidson first appeared on The Young and the Restless in 1978, winning a Daytime Emmy Award in 2013.
The soap airs weekdays in Australia on Arena.
