Being dead in Daytime doesn't mean a thing, especially for John Wesley Shipp's character, Eddie Ford. The actor will be returning to "One Life To Live" before the show migrates online in 2012. Though there are no details as to how Eddie will appear, John posted on his Facebook, "The ideas for this last week of ‘OLTL’ on ABC truly approach brilliance; when I was told, roughly, what I would be asked to do, it was not what I had thought, and man was I psyched. I tripped on the idea for a week before I ever got the script. Kudos to Ron Calivati and his staff, to Exec Producer Frank Valentini whose praises I continue to sing (some show is going to grab him up if they’re not careful) and a technical crew that not only functions with the proficiency that comes from doing this a lot of years, but every time you give, they give back, and you feel it."
Soaps.com will keep readers posted on John's return date. He last appeared on December 15, 2010 when the investigation into Eddie Ford's murder began.
