(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.


David A. Gregory (Ford) has announced his airdates for the month of June on his Facebook page. Fans can look for Ford on June 9th, 10th, 11th, 14th, 21st, 23rd, 29th, and 30th.

“One Life to Live” airs Weekdays on ABC. Weeknights on SOAPnet. Anytime on ABC.com and SOAPnet.com. Check local listings.
