Nathaniel Marston's Temporary Recast!

Last week reported that One Life to Live's Nathaniel Marston (Michael McBain) would be taking a temporary leave of absence for four episodes starting January 10, 2007. Although we are still unsure as to the reason for this change, we respect Nathaniel's privacy and are happy to report this official statement from him to reassure all of his fans that everything is all right�

"My role as Michael McBain was recently temporarily recast for four episodes, and I've learned that it has caused some concern among my fans. I apologize to everyone who was unnecessarily worried by this news, and wanted to let you know that I am back at work and everything is just fine.

I would also like to thank all the wonderful people who have sent their good thoughts and prayers to me and my family. The positive energy and support I get from all of you means the world to me.

As the holidays are upon us, I would like to send my heartfelt wishes for a joyous season and a peaceful 2007 to everyone."


Seeing as the actors tape the shows weeks ahead of time, as Nathaniel said, he is again back at work as Michael McBain. However, you'll see Robert Harte filling in Nathaniel's shoes for those four episodes in January.
