‘Young and the Restless’ (Y&R) spoilers indicate that Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby) recently said good-bye to Genoa City. The news came as a massive shocker to Y&R fans, since it came a bit out of left field. Rumors are that Daniel Goddard was let go/fired, although the latter verbiage sounds a bit more offensive. Regardless, Daniel Goddard sure as hell sounded absolutely shocked and blindsided by the decision to the point that his grief and sorrow was palpable even across our computer screens. We truly feel bad for the guy who, in his own words, was “gutted”. Ouch.
‘Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: Daniel Goddard’s Shocking Exit & Firing Revisited – Did Producers Make A Mistake?
The reports indicate that Daniel was left completely stunned by the decision to let him go by the producers of the hit CBS soap. In a picture he shared that was taken just outside of CBS studios in the greater Losan Angeles are, Goddard wrote on his Twitter account:
“It’s with a heavy heart that I share the news that I will no longer be part of the cast of the Young & the Restless. I’m as shocked & gutted as u r. I’m forever grateful for my 13yrs in the Y&R family but sadly it seems that without Neil & Lily… there just is no Cane.”

The actor proceeded to finish off his tweet with a broken heart emoji, but he didn’t specify whether he was fired or if he was simply let go from the soap. Regardless, multiple reports have specified that he was fired, although no further words from the actor himself on this matter have been made public – probably due to legal reasons, as well as financial ones (possibly).
Daniel Goddard was a well-liked actor who played a bit of a controversial role on the show. Cane came on as a con artist, and spent a decent amount of his Y&R life being less than an upstanding Genoa City citizen. Still, his fans have made it no secret that he will surely be missed on the show.
Some of the highlighted comments include; “I’m shocked and sad. You have always been so wonderful to all of your fans and help to promote the show. We love you so much I may cry,” along with, “I don’t know who made the decision but this is awful. I’m hoping that maybe Ron Carlivati may see this and offer you a role on ‘Days of Our Lives’.”
Another fan wrote, “So you are leaving? With is up with the writers? They need to quit bringing in new people and use the veterans that they have. Veterans equals substance!”
Is there a chance Daniel might see a sting on Days of Our Lives or General Hospital in the future?
It’s quite possible. After all, the soap world is full of actors who jump from one show to the other, with some going on the entire merry-go-around of American Daytime TV. Suffice to say that, for now, Daniel will take some time off and recharge his batteries. We do have a feeling that it won’t be long before his talents are put to good use once again. We wish Daniel all the best in his future endeavours and will miss him in the role of “Billionaire Cane” that never quite materialized
