(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “One Life to Live” brings diversity back to Llanveiw by resurrecting the African-American Gannon family.Throughout the 1990s, the Gannon’s made quite a splash in Llanview. Patriarch Hank was the ex-husband of the town’s noted Caucasian defense attorney Nora Hanen; creating one of daytime television’s only interracial couples of the time. They also brought along their daughter Rachel and Hank’s brother R.J., whom it was later revealed had once had an affair with Nora while she was married to Hank. Over the years, Rachel would become a murderer and a drug addict, and R.J. a thorne in the side of the Llanview Police Department and his brother Hank, who became the District Attorney following the resignation of Herb Callison. But by the end of the decade, the Gannon’s had faded into the background and were rarely seen or mentioned by the residents of Llanview.
