One Life To Live actor fun fact:
Phil Carey played the iconic role of Asa Buchanan from 1979 to 2008. What fans might not know is how he caught the attention of the "One Life To Live" casting directors. Carey had auditioned for the role of "All My Children's" Palmer Cortlandt, which ultimately went to James Mitchell. His audition tape piqued the interest of the Pine Valley sister soap and landed Carey a Llanview role that will surely go down in Daytime history.
