Phil Carey
March 2007
One Life to Live is poised to lose another veteran performer. Phil Carey (Asa Buchanan), who has appeared as OLTL's Asa for nearly three decades, will exit the show when his contract expires. The actor and the show were unable to come to terms on an agreement that would keep Carey in Llanview.
Kamar de los Reyes
April 2007

Trevor St. John

Fans of Renee Goldsberry are going to be holding their breath and crossing their fingers for the next few weeks. The two-time Emmy nominated actress and show execs are currently at an impasse over a new contract.
Virginia Tech
April 2007

Farah Fath
May 2007

May 2007
arah Roberts is returning to One Life to Live later this spring -- but it's not what most fans were expecting. Buzz had a popular Days of our Lives star hopping aboard to take on the role. Well that star is still coming to Llanview, but it's another actress who has landed the role of Flash.
