"After a long wait and wondering whether or not I was even going to be asked back on the show, my team (agents and managers), and myself decided to pursue other opportunities," the actor explained. "We all believe this is the right decision to take, although it was very hard. My decision is simply a career choice, and has nothing to do with the show Passions. I believe life is full of risks, and this is just one i have to take. I am a dreamer, and i dream of having a big successful career. One of my dreams did come true...Passions."
Bellani joined the cast of Passions in February 2006 and he will remain with the show through its finale on NBC. A show spokesperson indicates that the role of Miguel will most likely be recast sometime in the future.
