“It saddens me that the genre seems to be dying.”

News came this afternoon that One Life to Live has been canceled and many are devastated by this turn of events.

“One Live To Live’s” Mark Lawson (Brody Lovett) tells Soaps.com, “One Life has been the best training ground and proving ground I could have ever asked for as an actor. In my time on the show I’ve been fortunate enough to work with wonderful, hugely talented people across the board and I hope to honor that foundation throughout the rest of my career. It saddens me that the genre seems to be dying, but I’m not worried about anyone who comes from the One Life family. We all are pro’s and will carry the tradition forward.”
