Most of the time, actors are told that they are going to be written off of a soap opera. However, this didn’t happen with Evans. She actually heard about Adrienne’s death from overhearing chatter among the cast and crew.
She was shocked and worried, so she went straight to co-executive producer Albert Alarr to get the truth. That is when she was told that the death rumors were true. However, he wanted to explain the decision to her and why it had to be done.
