B&B's Down Off Contract

This morning, it was revealed on Lesley-Anne Down's (Jackie, B&B) official Web site, www.lesleyannedown.com, that her contract with the soap that she joined in 2003 was not renewed. "Bradley Bell has decided not to renew Lesley-Anne Down's contract on B&B. Lesley-Anne wants all of you to know how special and important you all are to her. Your continued effort and support of Lesley-Anne is so appreciated by her. When one door closes another one opens. This thankfully has been the case in this instance. We will let you know what it is when the time is right." This comes hot on the heels of the news that Brandon Beemer (Owen) and Zack Conroy (Oliver) have been dropped to recurring status. However, "Jowen" fans can look forward to scenes between the popular pair in February. Beemer recently tweeted: Had a great day today, working with @LesleyAnneDown @AshleyAJones #jackwagner #johnmccook & @KKellyLang #lovemyjob
