Changes continue as All My Children's new head writing team puts their own spin on the show's storylines and the characters that make up its canvas.

A spokesperson for the show confirms that relative newcomer, Jason Olive (Frank Hubbard) has been let go from the show. Olive joined the cast as the son of former supercouple Angie and Jesse Hubbard in July.

That character, too, was written off the canvas quickly.

Frank has not been without story since his return, however, the character's storylines have seldom been front and center. Frank was revealed to be the father of Mia's son as well as the videographer of a tape showing the near-death of Simone's brother.

"I have enjoyed working with the show and cast members," Olive said in a statement. "Great adventure awaits, and I am always in the breech."

Olive's final airdate was December 23.
