Kassie de Paiva (Blair, One Life to Live/General Hospital)Huge news for ABC soap fans!  Llanview heads to Port Charles. 

Frank Valentini, executive producer of General Hospital, announced today that Emmy Award-nominated Kassie DePaiva (Blair, One Life to Live) and Emmy winner Roger Howarth (Todd, One Life to Live), along with fan favorites Michael Easton (John, One Life to Live) and Kristen Alderson (who we watched grow up as Starr on One Life to Live), will reprise their One Life to Live characters and head to General Hospital as part of...

....a new storyline for the multi-Emmy Award-winning daytime drama. Production begins late January 2012 in Los Angeles.

“We have a very exciting story planned for the citizens of Port Charles, with Sonny Corinthos at the center of it! I am confident viewers and fans alike will be excited for the arrival of John (Easton), Starr (Alderson), Blair (DePaiva) and Todd (Howarth),” said Valentini. “Incorporating characters from ‘One Life to Live’ continue the legacy of the show as we weave them into ‘General Hospital.’”

With many television, film and stage credits to her name, DePaiva played the role of beautiful Blair Cramer on One Life to Live since December 1993. In addition, she played good-girl Chelsea Reardon on the daytime drama Guiding Light. Horwath returned to portray Todd Manning on One Life to Live in 2011, a role he originated from a day-player to a compelling long-term character. Performing at many prestigious regional theater centers, he has many theater credits to his name, and in addition appeared in the television series “Prey” and in the primetime teen drama Dawson’s Creek, as well as the daytime drama As the World Turns.

Easton joined the cast of ABC’s long-running One Life to Live in 2003 as John McBain. 
A published poet, he also played vampire Caleb Morley on the ABC daytime drama Port Charles, among many other television and film credits, including playing the very hot life class model on Ally McBeal with Calista Flockhart.

As for Alderson, she continuously played the role of Starr Manning on multi award-winning One Life to Live since March 1998, the precocious young daughter of Blair Cramer and Todd Manning.

One Life to Live, the orignal home for the characters of Blair, Todd, John, and Starr, was cancelled last spring by ABC and ends it's 44-yr run this Friday, January 13, 2011.
