On the heels of Ronn Moss's (Ridge) decision to leave his beloved daytime role after 25 years, the actor reached out to his fans on his Facebook page this morning. "I want to make sure, without any doubt, that you guys all know how much I love you," he wrote. "Your support during this time and hopefully beyond is everything. I can't say anything yet, but soon will explain. Hang in there with me, We have a wonderful new journey ahead of us. Try and not be sad, angry, disappointed.. It's been a great run and all good things end eventually. As this door closes, others are opening. I want you all to come with me through these new doors of opportunities and experience how cool it's going to be. Have faith, be strong, Know I'm eternally yours." Several of Moss's B&B castmates also spoke out about his departure. Hunter Tylo (Taylor) wrote on Twitter, "Hope U got my message: Had no idea this was coming :-/ You know I wish you & your family the best in this world and eternity. Will miss U." Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) echoed the sentiment by responding to fans' outcry via Twitter. "I am crying, too! I hate this!" In other B&B news, on August 9, the show had put out a casting call for a new contract male role that was described as "Caucasian. 25-28 years old. Heart throb. Very Masculine. Edgy. Not afraid to get the job done. Bit of a cad." However, the call was canceled after news of Moss's exit broke.
