"It's been a fantastic journey," she said in a statement. "I've loved playing Erica Kane and working with Agnes Nixon and all the incredible people involved with All My Children. I'm looking forward to all kinds of new and exciting opportunities."

Meanwhile, Castle star Nathan Fillion, who got his start as Joey Buchanan on OTTL in the mid 90s, mourned the loss of the show on his Twitter page.

"A moment of silence for a disappearing genre," wrote the 40-year-old actor, "OLTL & AMC, we'll miss your hard work and talent."

And Grey's Anatomy actress Leven Rambin, who's played the dual roles of step-sisters Lily Montgomery and Ava Benton on AMC since 2007, tells UsMagazine.com.

I grew up watching the show with my mother and grandmother, and we so enjoyed watching our beloved characters day after day for many years. All My Children touched my life personally, and I will always thank the cast and crew for allowing me to grow up as a woman and actress in their company."
