When “One Life to Live” ends its 43-year run on Friday, some of the series’ beloved characters will find a new home on “General Hospital.”
New York Daily News reports that actors Kassie DePaiva, Roger Howarth, Michael Easton and Kristen Alderson will resume their roles on the still-standing ABC soap opera.
“We have a very exciting story planned for the citizens of Port Charles, with Sonny Corinthos at the center of it," "General Hospital’s” executive producer Frank Valentini said in a statement to the New York Daily News. "I am confident viewers and fans alike will be exited by the arrival of John (Easton), Starr (Alderson), Blair (DePaiva) and Todd (Howarth). Incorporating characters from ‘One Life to Live’ will continue the legacy of the show as we weave them into ‘General Hospital.’”
