As the World Turns debuted in 1956, and it will end its run in September of this year. Julianne Moore got her start on the show in 1985, and she will make an appearance to pay her respects. I think that George Clooney set a precedent for this when he returned to ER before it went off the air. It’s sad that soap operas are getting canceled, but with so many women working now, it is hard to get valuable numbers. See a clip of Julianne Moore on ASWT below. She won a daytime Emmy for her role on the show.
