Michael Easton (John McBain) posted an update for fans wanting to know where he currently stands in the dispute between ABC’s “General Hospital” and TOLN’s “One Life to Live.” In a Facebook message, the actor said, “THANK YOU…your kind words of support mean the world to me. No word yet on when we might return to work but the fridge is stocked, the bills are paid, and I get to spend lots of precious time with my little girl.”

As previously reported, Easton’s management team told Soap Opera Network on Tuesday, February 19, “Currently we have no plans to return to ‘One Life to Live.’ The rest is to be determined.”

Despite no final decision being made on Easton’s status with either “GH” or “OLTL,” as neither ABC or TOLN have commented, the fate of Easton’s co-star Roger Howarth (Todd Manning) seems a little more certain. Howarth’s representatives have repeatedly told Soap Opera Network that the actor will return to the set of “OLTL” on Monday, March 18 for four weeks before returning to “GH.”
