Stage Vet Patti Perkins Gets OLTL Contract Role!

David Tom (ex-Billy, The Young and the Restless ) seen here in a publicity photo by Bob Lamb, has accepted a role on One Life to Live, assuming the part of Paul Cramer from departing portrayer Brock Cuchna.

Initially hesitant about relocating from sunny Los Angeles to New York City, where OLTL is filmed, the Emmy-winning actor took a cue from his real-life sibling Heather Tom, who plays Paul's half-sister Kelly, and will make the move for his newest contract role.

Far as we know, this is the first time in soaps recent history that a real-life brother and sister have appeared as family at the same time on the same soap.

OLTL has yet to announce Tom's first airdate.
