One Life To Live’s Future & Stars react to the last day of filming for ABC
Posted by OujaStrike on November 18, 2011
News broke late Thursday night that their is a snag into production on One Life To Live with Prospect Park due to funding,
According to sources, Prospect Park’s trouble securing funding could very likely result in a delay of OLTL’s TOLN debut. The serial was initially slated to begin airing on TOLN in January 2012. Additionally, what was a described to me as a “legal issue” is now preventing ABC from allowing the soap opera to continue using their New York City studio.
“I don’t think it’s [plans to continue airing OLTL] dead in the water yet,” says a setsider. via Daytime Cofidential
Actors from One Life To Live have reacted from the last day on the set of One Life To Live.
Mark Lawson Plays Brody Lovett aka my favorite on the show via fb post.
Studying for Brody’s last scenes for ABC. I can’t believe it’s here. The last three and a half years have flown by. I’ve learned so much and am so thankful for all the people I’ve been privilaged to work with. Above all, I’m overwhelmed by the support of the fans. Your love of the show, of Brody, and of me as an actor have made this ride worth it. Thank you.

This has been a sad day. I’m truly grateful 4 this awesome journey. I’ve had an amazing time in Llanview….& really hate 2 see it end. But it was great and my life is better because of the lives that have touched mine. Thank you OLTL/Blair fans for 18 years of goodness. It’s because of you that it has lasted this long. Until we meet again… Xoxo
