‘One Life to Live’ Breaks Down a New Kind of Destiny

Disney/ABC Television Group

As you may, or may not know, Prospect Park’s reboot of “One Life to Live” is currently recasting the roles of Matthew Buchanan and Destiny Evans, last played by actors Eddie Alderson and Shenell Edmonds on the ABC version of the soap. According to a character breakdown Soap Opera Network readers had been discussing ad nauseam over the weekend, it looks as though Prospect Park may be taking the title of the soap a little more seriously as it gets ready to transition into its new online format. According to a summarized breakdown, the soap appears to be including profane words and apparently is portraying Matthew as a deadbeat father.

Note: While this is a summarized breakdown of roles currently being cast, this does not in any way mean that a finalized script for the characters will utilize such details nor can any character traits described be expected to appear in the final on air/online version of the series.


Matthew stops by Destiny’s apartment. It’s clear they’re not on good terms, as they’re somewhat short with each other. Destiny says it isn’t a good time, she’s expecting someone. She goes into the other room to change Drew and Matthew is shocked by what he sees on Destiny’s laptop – SugarDaddy.com. She tells him it’s none of his business and he says yeah it is, you’re the mother of my kid. Destiny says it’s no big deal, it’s not a crime to talk to them, entertain them, provide companionship. They show more respect for her than Matthew does. “You waltz in here when you’ve got a hard-on and then you disappear. And when you’re gone, I still have a child to raise, bills to pay, like rent, tuition, doctor’s bills.” He says “So rich old men give you money for sex? Some mother.” Matthew acknowledges that he didn’t want to be part of that but he’s going to draw the line, she’s exposing him to sick, twisted stuff. She says he doesn’t know anything and tells him to get out. Matthew says “You know, Destiny, I just realized you’re nothing but a whore.” She slaps him and says “Listen to me and listen good: you gave up any rights over my life when you chose not to have anything to do with our baby. So don’t you dare judge me.” She shoves him out the door and once he’s gone, she bursts into tears.

‘Y&R’ Beefing Up African American Presence with New Female

Daytime's most watched soap is also daytime's most heavily viewed series for African American audiences, but you wouldn't know it based on the storyline's written for its African American characters of late. With a new writing team in place, that will soon change. According to Soap Opera Digest, the series has put out another casting call for an African American character. Unlike the previous casting call, this one is for a female and it definitely sounds like a possible recast of a current character, but we could be wrong.
