Will Kempe joined the cast of "One Life to Live" in February, 1997, as Ian Armitage, the son of a wealthy British businessman. The mysterious death of his mother brought Ian to Llanview, where he discovered surprising secrets about his past.
Like his character, Will has an international background, having grown up in Bermuda and attended boarding school in England. He earned a business degree from the University of Western Ontario, but chose a career in acting over the world of finance.
