More cast cutting from the soaps today.  ABC Daytime has confirmed to Soap Opera Digest that Brittany Underwood (Langston) has been let-go by the series and the decision was storyline-dictated. Langston is now set for an exit this spring.

Underwood first appeared on the canvas as a wayward teenager who Dorian took under her wing and eventually adopted.  So where does this leave Ford and an on-screen romantic interest for his portrayer, David Gregory ?  Stay tuned!

Although i love OLTL, I am always surprised by who they let go!

My opinion, not a good move. It sounds like the writers are doing it in reverse. We wanted the Fords gone, not all of Starr’s best friends.

Langston was playing an awesome role w/ Markko. Along w/ her friends Starr and Cole.They had a good inner circle.. But when they brought the Fords in, that ruined the whole show. And because of these ignorant writers. Gives me no regret for the fact that all the ABC Soaps were taken off the air.

perhaps if enough of us post comments, ABC will change their minds. I hope we find out more as to why she is being let go.

come on! I think it is horrible that OLTL is letting Brittany go. I’m so over this soap.

I think this is the best idea because I have never cared for Langston. I don’t mind the Ford brothers and I think I will like Ford even more if he is paired with someone else. The Langston pairing seemed forced and she should have been with Markko still. When she was with Markka I could tolerate her a little.

I just started watching this show and the best character is Langston.

Why? This is not fair. Langston needs to stay.

If Brittany Underwoods exit is storyline-dictated and the Ford brothers are sticking around. My guess is Langton killed Eddie.

Langston should not be leaving to prop the Ford brothers and in no way should she have killed Eddie. What a disgrace these writers would be. She is a wonderful character all on her own and Brittany has portrayed her beautifully over the years. I cannot stand by this terrible decision to fire the talented, young actress. Langston should be sticking around.

I really can’t believe they are letting Brittany go. What in the world are they thinking??? What about getting rid of the new girl Aubrey… she’s a pointless character or Marty who hasn’t been that great of a character since after she came back from the dead. Then Susan Haskell could take on for The ABC team and move to California so Thorsten could fo back to All My Children. OR even Echo??? Rex already has a mom who is much more intresting by the name of Roxy. They could even het rid of Inez, make her really respnsible for her ex-husband’s murder and give al of the Ford brother’s some emotional scenes as their mother is carted off to jail. It could make for some great scenes and now that there’s no way she could cause truble for Bo and Nora anymore there’s no real reason for her to stick around. And what are they going to do with Ford now… the only real redeeming part of him was his relationship with Langston. And she’s such an intregal part of The Cramer Family… and the only young woman is Starr’s age group. Who is she going to talk to now? I’m really upset about this decision!!! ABC and OLTL are making a big mistake.

ABC and OLTL you are making a big mistake. The best idea is to get rid of Susan Haskell so Thorsten can go back to AMC………………..

this is so stupid! adding other people and kicking off the main characters is very very stupid. oltl is going to lose viewers!!

I don’t understand why they would do this. She’s very talented and I’ve come to think of her as a real Kramer. I’ve always kind of preferred her to Starr. She’s been a lot spunkier. Will be sad to see her go.

I agree. Langston was such an interesting character and she should have been around for a long time. I am beyond sad to see her go.

The whole “Ford brothers” thing started with Langston. They wrote her horribly to facilitate this relationship with Ford and demolished her beautiful story with Markko. Then they decide not to even write for Ford/Langston. For the past few months, they’ve gotten nothing. So now Langston is the one to go, and not Ford? Why? Because he has abs? This news has been hard to take ever since I heard it. She was an amazing female character that could be looked up to & Brittany rocked the role. OLTL is on my hate list.

Agreed. I loved the character of Langston when she was with Markko. She was a spunky, interesting nonconformist. I HATE all three of the Ford brothers, and since Langston’s forced pairing with Ford, she’s turned into just another dull, horny nondescript teen character. As the writers have ruined the character, I’m now not that sorry to see her go.

I actually like all of the Fords….except Nate. Inez is a recurring character, but her arc seems to be over. I do not agree that being with Ford ruined Langston. I believed her motivation for wanting to explore outside of her safe first love. It happens all of the time. She is not the first to move on to a hotter guy. Poor writing has ruined her character. Ford should not have been so easily redeemed. That is why we have James….the anti-Ford Ford brother. I am sorry for the actress, but her character is completely not necessary to the show. I’d prefer more time for the adults. The teen stories are always unbearable. The character most ruined is Dani. She had such a strong energy when she showed up. She was different. Now she is just Nate’s girlfriend. Nate and Inez can leave town, but leave Ford and James. Now that Ford is the father of Jess’ baby, maybe we will see the return of his bad side.

Of course I want Langston to stay and get the character investment she deserves as opposed to newbies I could care less about. The character is 19, hardly an age of limited storytelling possibilities. She has connections and a past to work with. As a female, I tend to invest in female characters but I’m realizing that is the wrong way to go with these soaps.

Keep Brittany on the show! Langston is a great young character and I’ve absolutely been a fan since she first came on. This is just awful. Man do I wish they would undo this.

From the start, I felt like they were tossing both Langston & Markko to showcase Ford. Markko was gone, and Langston was used to prop until they could move on with plans. That has made me tune out.

That is exactly what they did, much to my sadness. It was uncalled for.

This came on top of his Jason’s post which expressed: “When I signed my 1 year contract with Y&R I was excited because for the first time in 3 years living in this city I was able to call a studio like ‘Television City’ home.  Add to that the incredible people I’ve had the pleasure of working with to create genuine relationships with … like Peter Bergman,Melissa Ordway, Jordi Vilasuso, Sasha Calle and Noemi Gonzalez  just to name a few. (Sorry guys, but Peter is my favorite).  I feel blessed to have been part of something so special like The Young and the Restless family.  It’s time to turn the page and see what beautiful stories I am blessed enough to be part of next.  I want to send all my love and positive vibes to the Y&R fans who have been so welcoming since day 1! Appreciate the love and no worries, The Rosales family will still be cooking up some drama in Genoa City, so keeping looking out for them, and showing them all the love they deserve.”
