    One Life To Live: Carl Gordon Dead.

    Wednesday, August 04 2010

    Our condolences…

    Soaps.com is sad to report that actor Carl Gordon, who appeared as Shaun Evan's (Sean Ringgold) grandfather Fred back during the hate crime storyline in 2007, passed away on July 20 after a battle with non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He was 78 years old.

    Aside from his Llanview role Carl appeared as Wade Griffin on As the World Turns. Fans may remember him from his role on "ROC" as Andrew Emerson from 1991 to 1994, as well as in numerous other film and television roles.

    Let's honor Carl's memory by revisiting a video clip of his time in Llanview…



    Soaps.com sends Carl's family and friends our deepest condolences. As always, please stay tuned to the One Life to Live News Room for more breaking news.

    Yes, PLEASE bring back Sean and his family!!!!!!! For goodness sake, we need more diversity in Llanview!! It is amazing we still have to request this in this day and age!!!

    Sean, has a great family dynamic, I love his little sister, Destiny! Layla is leaving or going on recurring status, so now there are no other Blacks/Asians/and only Christian is representing the Hispanics, in residence that have any kind of storyline.....Is it because the writers, can't or won't write these storylines or are they just not interested, period!!!!????
