This week we'll say goodbye to one of daytime's most durable actresses, when Nancy Addison Altman (below), who plays attorney Jillian Ryan, tapes her last scenes for ABC's Ryan's Hope. On the show, Jillian will go to Australia to see her mother, leaving the proverbial soap door open should she decide to return. Altman has been on Ryan's Hope since its premiere in July 1975 and is off to try her luck in Hollywood. Her last show, set to air next month, promises to be a three-hankie farewell.
