(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — With his character Matthew Buchanan in a coma after suffering a severe brain injury, many “One Life to Live” fans have been left wondering if Eddie Alderson was leaving the show. Fortunately they can breathe a little easier now after hearing from the actor himself.
According to Soap Opera Digest, Alderson told fans at a Daytime Stars and Strikes benefit for the American Cancer Society benefit on October 4 that “[Matthew] misses Llanview, he misses being awake and being able to talk,” and that he returns to the studio this week to tape more scenes.
This comes as good news to the father-to-be Matthew, whose girlfriend Destiny (Shenell Edmonds) is pregnant with his baby. Look for his scenes to air sometime in November. Alderson joined “OLTL” in 2001. His older sister Kristen Alderson, has played Starr Manning on the show since 1998.
