Wanting his “loyal” fans to know his upcoming story arc would be his last, Goddard claimed that the series didn’t know what to do with Cane following the death of Kristoff St. John (Neil) and the exit of Christel Khalil’s Lily (Goddard’s longtime love interest), despite the show’s numbers attempts of of linking the character of Cane to the other established families by teasing pairings with Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) and Traci Abbott (Beth Maitland).

It is with a heavy heart that I share the news that I will no longer be part of the cast of the Young and the Restless. I am as shocked and gutted as you are… I almost didn’t post but I felt that the most loyal & loving fans an actor could wish for deserved to know and watch the last story arc knowing the rich meaning behind it. I am forever grateful for the 13 years I have been a part of the Y&R family… but sadly it seems that without Neil and Lily there just is no Cane. 💔 #yr
