Farewell, child actress Laura Parsons: Vanessa Bayer will exit Saturday Night Live after seven seasons with the show.
Bayer joined the cast as a featured player in 2010 and was promoted to the repertory cast two years later. She is the longest-serving current female cast member on SNL, and, per Deadline, this year’s season finale will mark the end of her contract.
Bayer’s announcement comes just two days after Bobby Moynihan announced his departure after nine seasons. Will Drunk Uncle and Bayer’s Miley Cyrus celebrate together? That seems like a good idea.
Thank you SNL for 7 years of laughs, love and incredible memories. It has been a dream come true. And thanks for this goodbye sketch at the table, Colin.
