Although we last saw Nathan’s character onscreen in 2003, he will return to Llanview on April1!

This news comes off the heels of a casting rumor, saying the show is planning to bring back the character of Rachael. Though there has been no news as to if they’ll bring back one of the few actresses who have played the role, or if they’ll get someone new into place, will keep you posted!

Since leaving One Life to Live, Nathan appeared in “Living In Captivity” as Mr. Faston and on “Law & Order” as a Sergeant. is very excited about this return! Nathan’s character was a great presence in Llanview, and we can’t wait to see what the show has in store for him! As of right now, there is no word on whether this will be a long or short term deal.
