A Potential Problem From All These Soap Operas Ending

I just realized that with all these soap operas going down, one of the avenues for young actors to learn their craft and get exposure is slowly being squeezed out of existence.

I am sure most of my peers in pop culture and entertainment blogging have seen at least one list of high profile actors and actresses who got their big break working on a soap opera, and with live theatre going through its own downturn (well, it has been on the decline for a while given the costs of producing new and existing work), it seems that there are going to be fewer opportunities for those in the acting profession to learn their craft professionally. And that will be a real shame.
