Judi Evans, Wally Kurth Off Contract at Days of our Lives

Apparently, Bo and Hope aren't the only Salem supercouple, who have reached the end of the line. According to behind-the-scenes sources, Judi Evans and Wally Kurth, who created the roles of Adrienne and Justin back in 1987, have been taken off contract at Days of our Lives.

The pair received the news on Monday, November 30, and were understandably surprised. After all, both actors had only been put back on contract with the soap earlier this year.

On March 30, 2015, Kurth tweeted: "Hey all, guess I should confirm. I did sign a contract with #Days. Which will require me to leave #GH. It's bittersweet. I can't do both."

Kurth, in fact, did leave his recurring role as Ned Ashton on General Hospital to return to Days full-time, shortly thereafter. Now, that contract has been terminated.

The Days writers had separated Adrienne and Justin a few months ago, after Justin had an affair with a co-worker named Elsa. Adrienne then found solace in Lucas' arms. Lately, however, Justin had grown closer to Eve, while comforting her over the loss of her daughter Paige.

There's no word yet as to whether or not Evans and Kurth will remain on the show as recurring players. No matter, don't expect the pair to be involved in major storyline moving forward. The two actors' screen time has dwindled considerably, since the departure of Freddie Smith, who played their son, Sonny.

Evans and Kurth will be both missed.
