On Monday afternoon, TV Guide Magazine revealed news that "General Hospital" actor Jonathan Jackson has decided to exit the role of Lucky Spencer on the ABC daytime drama. Sources indicate to the magazine that Jackson was denied a lighter schedule following two years of non-stop drama for his beleaguered character and that ultimately played into his decision to get out of Port Charles. Jackson was also apparently disappointed that his character never got the opportunity to properly reunite with his former love interest Elizabeth Webber played by Rebecca Herbst. The four-time Daytime Emmy Award winner will last tape on November 17.
As "One Life to Live" winds down production on its television run, the show has landed the mother of all returns -- literally. Agnes Nixon, who created "OLTL" and sister soap "All My Children," will make an appearance on the show as, what else, a soap opera scribe.
When "One Life" fans last saw Charlie Banks (Brian Kerwin) earlier this year, he was leaving town in disgrace after his love affair with Echo DiSavoy (Kim Zimmer) was exposed, ending his marriage to Viki Lord (Erika Slezak). However that isn't stopping him from creeping his way back into Llanview.
Even though nearly a dozen "One Life to Live" cast members have already signed on to remain with the show when it moves to online production with Prospect Park in the coming months, at least one actress won't be sticking around to make the transition. Terri Conn (Aubrey/Christine) tells Soap Opera Weekly that "I'm not going to stay."
With the father of her unborn baby still in a coma, a very much pregnant Destiny Evans (Shenell Edmonds) continues to inch closer toward her due date. However, the teenage mother-to-be will soon be going through labor pains as "One Life to Live" is already looking to cast her little bundle of joy.
