Michael E. Knight, who plays Y&R’s quirky Dr. Simon Neville and gained soap superstardom as AMC’s Tad Martin, has been let go, reports TV Guide’s Michael Logan on Twitter. Knight debuted on October 5, 2015 for what was supposed to be a few-episode run, but wound up entrenched in story and eyed as a potential romantic partner for Eileen Davidson’s Ashley. The decision to wrap up the actor’s run was reportedly made before Jill Farren Phelps was removed from her executive producer post. Posted Logan, “Three time Emmy winner Michael E. Knight out as Dr. Simon Neville after a few more eps. Decision made before EP switch.”
