Weary's departure from As the World Turns was the cause of some controversy, as the timing coincided with a change in course for the character of Luke, who would be revealed to be gay.[2] Initially, news reports suggested that Weary or Zimmer may have been uncomfortable with the story. Zimmer subsequently told the press that Weary's departure was related to his age (at the time, he was 15) and that such a storyline would require a much larger time commitment than originally agreed to. Weary wanted to be able to focus on school and make occasional appearances.
