“As the World Turns” actress Marnie Schulenburg has died after succumbing to stage 4 metastatic breast cancer.

Industry Entertainment representative Kyle Luker has confirmed that the 37-year-old Daytime Emmy-nominated actress died at a hospital in Bloomfield, New Jersey, Tuesday, two years after she had been diagnosed with the disease.

Born in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Schulenburg started her acting career in 2006 after moving to New York City to take part in readings at the Dramatists Guild of America and The Flux Theatre Ensemble. A year after relocating to NYC, she was cast as Alison McDermott Stewart in a crossover episode of “The Young and the Restless.”

She reprised her role in “As the World Turns” until the series was canceled in 2010. That year, she received a nomination for a Daytime Emmy in the Outstanding Younger Actress category.

The actress portrayed Jo Sullivan in the “One Life to Live” reboot in 2013 and appeared in several other TV series, including “Army Wives,” “Tainted Dreams,” “Blue Bloods,” “The Good Fight,” “City on a Hill” and “Elementary.”

Schulenburg took to Instagram earlier this month to share a heartfelt Mother's Day post, in which she disclosed that had been released from the hospital but had to be sent home with an oxygen machine.

Sharing a photo of herself with her daughter Coda and her mom, she wrote, “It’s not my ideal to be a 38-year-old mom who needs an oxygen tank to survive right now. I want to be strong and beautiful for her. I want to show her how to move throughout this world with compassion, strength, vivacity, humor and joy like my mother showed me.”

“I know that me being here for her is the best gift I can give her but right now it feels like settling since she’s getting a half-life version of myself. My mother showed up 100% all day every day for me growing up or at least it seemed that way. I want to give Coda the same but I must be kind to myself and remember that nothing is permanent,” she continued.

Schulenburg was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020, five months after she gave birth to Coda. In addition to Coda, Schulenburg is also survived by her husband, actor Zack Robidas, who plays Mark Ravenhead in the HBO series “Succession.”
