In real time, Claire wouldn’t even be out of elementary school. Now she’s being portrayed by a 28 year old??

Things could have been much worse, of course. There were rumors circulating around Hell that ReRon was going to bring in the most intolerable of his OLTL pets as a recast. thank Hell they never went there at least.

We seem to be missing some vital information here. Why? Why is Olivia Rose Keegan out and Isabel Durant in? Why is an actress who won an Emmy for this role relieved of her duties?

Apparently she got a better paying gig on some “high school musical” tv series. Probably something on the new Disney streaming service, by the sounds of it. Can’t really blame her for taking that opportunity, as opposed to playing the cartoonish Psycho Claire doing the same things over and over again. We all saw her musical talent when she first joined the show, before becoming the looney tunes pyromaniac stalker type. Just wish the recast had been a more realistic age. Ironically, Claire’s mother, Belle was born on screen in 1994, so SHE is the one who should be portrayed… Read more »

I really appreciate all the responses. But, Satan, I respond to you specifically because you’ve given the issue storyline background (of which I was unaware) as well as a possible (probable) reason for the casting change. — And now for some context of my own, in an issue I’ve addressed previously at this site, I was devastated by a casting change that occurred with GH back in 1977! Fan favorite Valerie Starrett, who originated and played the role of Diana Maynard Taylor (1969-1977) was replaced by Brooke Bundy. I was truly heartbroken by the change. This was before the Internet,… Read more »

I bet it all comes down to money: Isabel is willing to accept a smaller pay check than Olivia.

Accepting a new actor in an established role can always be jarring. In this case, I don’t think the wardrobe department is helping fans become accustomed to her by putting her in clothes I’ve never seen Claire wear, style-wise. What gives?

When is the head writer that made this show such a mess going to be fired the way Greg Meng was?

ReRon did a LOT of damage before they fired him from GH. He literally had to botch the exit story of THE most famous GH character in the show’s history, Luke Spencer, before they dropped the ax on him. The show is still recovering from the damage he did to other core characters (Robert Scorpio & Jason Morgan being two obvious examples). And sadly, his former partner in crime, Frank Valentini, is still there.

Agree & he has done his best at Days to destroy characters such as Steve & others while trying to make mediocre actors/characters (such as Justin & Rafe) relevant & they aren’t. Can understand why GV is leaving.
