(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — The latest “One Life to Live” comings and goings for the month of June.

Nicholas Robuck has been cast in the contract role of James, who will cross paths with Starr and be revealed as Ford’s younger brother.  His first airdate is Wednesday, June 9th.  Two days later, a thug (remember the recent audition script for “Bull”) wants to settle the score with the Llanview newcomer. 

Jessica Leccia debuts as Nate’s mother Inez Sallinger on Friday, June 18th.  Head Writer Ron Carlivati tells Soap Opera Digest that “We’ll see a lot of her” as the summer progresses.  The role is recurring.

Despite rumors to the contrary, a show rep tells SOD that Matt Walton (Elijah) has not been bumped up to contract status with “OLTL,” and remains a recurring player. 

Ada Maris returns as Markko’s mother Aurelia Rivera on Wednesday, June 9th when she gives Dorian a verbal smackdown and questions her parenting skills.

Sean Ringgold continues to air as Shaun Evans into the month of the June as he remains steadfast in his duties of keeping an eye on Kelly and Reed.  In an attempt to get a little alone time with her old flame, however, Kelly asks David to try to keep the big guy distracted.

While Catherine Hickland is not reprising the role of Lindsay Rappaport next month, look for Bo and Nora to receive a wedding gift from Lindsay on Tuesday, June 8th, in the form of a personalized license plate from Stateville. 

And don’t look for Robert Krimmer to return as Andrew Carpenter either, even though the character of Andrew will be mentioned late next week.  Turns out, Andrew is a no-show, which prompts David to offer to perform his pa and step-mom’s wedding ceremony.

In other news…

Kristen Alderson (Starr) tweeted Wednesday that “I had such a great time in Princeton for our location shoot. Lots of fun stunts, lots of laughs, & really pretty scenery. Love the ‘OLTL’ fam.”
