(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Jason Tam is taking the summer off from his day job as Markko Rivera on “One Life to Live.”

According to his website, the 27-year-old Tam, who joined “OLTL” on March 21, 2007, has been “selected to take part in the Public Theatre’s Summer Shakespeare Lab, a classical intensive for mid-career actors. He’ll be taking a two month hiatus from ‘One Life to Live’ to accommodate the Lab’s rigorous schedule.”

A last airdate for Tam has not been announced, and it is not clear how exactly the character of Markko will be written off the canvas for the summer.
