Another golden age character will be exiting “All My Children.” Emmy winning actor David Canary, who has portrayed Adam and Stuart Chandler for nearly three decades, has announced that he is leaving the series. His departure is due, at least in part, to the decision to move “All My Children” from New York to Los Angeles last year.
Canary is the second veteran actor to announce his departure. Last year, original cast member Ray MacDonnell, who portrayed Joe Martin since 1970, announced his retirement. Just last month, another long time cast member, James Mitchell, who portrayed Palmer Cortland for three decades, passed away and in 2008, Eileen Herlie, who portrayed Myrtle Fargate for three decades, also passed away.
