Many rumors swirling about the reason Drew Garrett is leaving the role of Michael so quickly. Actually, sources tell me it was in the works for awhile and despite some people's 'surprise' it was a known fact to some for at least 2 weeks. So why the switch?? Not anything the actor did--rather the chemistry they were looking for with the newbie female(s) coming in. There was no 'situation' that caused the parting as some are saying. I hear Garrett has been nothing but hard working and professional.
More to come as I'm sure other sites/peeps will be weighing in on the matter. I really wanted to say something because I don't think some of the crap that's going around is fair or correct.
Stars are tweeting their support to Drew, mainly saying he'll "land on his feet" and wishing him luck.
BTW, thanks for the comments, I agree it sucks. As one put it "Going in another direction." NOTE TO ABC PR department: If you were doing your JOB half way decent, there would BE no speculation or rumors---the entire OLTL situation was done so poorly, it's laughable and this?? To leak info to SoapNet and SID so abruptly was wrong, especially if you're not giving any reason why. He's a fan fave and it's only going to cause people to be pissed off.
Just saw this on twitter: A petition drive if you are interested in helping to keep Drew:
KEEP DREW ON GH
