As On-Air On-Soaps reported early Wednesday evening, former One Life to Live and As the World Turns actor Nathaniel Marston passed away from unimaginable and horrific injuries and complications from his October 30th car crash in Nevada.
The outpouring of love and support and acknowledgement for Nathaniel, and his mother, Elizabeth Jackson since the news spread of Marston’s death has been overwhelming. Several of Marston’s One Life to Live co-stars, and former As the World Turns star Michael Park, took to social media with touching posts, quotes, and song lyrics which speaks to Nathaniel’s life and their time with this man who was taken from us at 40-years-old.
Michael Easton, who played Nathaniel’s brother John McBain on OLTL on his official facebook page Wednesday night quoted the great Jimi Hendrix and said: “MISS YOU MY BROTHER – The story of life is quicker than the blink of an eye. The story of love is hello and goodbye. Until we meet again.” And in a heartbreaking and touching post with a picture of Michael and Nathaniel and his mom, Easton added: “FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS – I remember the hat. Nate wore it often. He would wear it on a winter’s day in New York with no jacket. Just a sweatshirt and that brown hat, brim turned up and he’d be laughing. That’s how I’ll always think of Nathaniel. Walking up Columbus Avenue, the wind blowing against him. He is smiling, moving towards me, growing larger and larger. My thoughts and prayers go out to Nathan’s family, his friends and all the fans who mourn his passing.”
Kathy Brier, who played Nathaniel’s longtime love interest and wife on One Life used the lyrics of Simon & Garfunkel’s classic song, The Boxer, as a parallel to the life of Marston on her facebook page. The lyrics begin: “I am just a poor boy
though my story’s seldom told, I have squandered my resistance for a pocketful of mumbles. Such are promises all lies and jest still, a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest ….”
Jessica Morris, who played Jennifer Rappaport opposite Nathaniel on One Life took to her facebook page with a photo of herself and Marston in a scene from OLTL. She related: “Rest in peace #nathanielmarston . Working with you was always so fun! Such a gifted actor and warm soul.”
Melisssa Archer, who played Natalie Buchanan, and was, of course, involved in story with the McBains took to Twitter and said: “Rest in peace Nathanial Marston. You are loved and will be missed.”
Robin Strasser, ex-Dorian Cramer Lord posted on Twitter her sadness: “SAD NEWS Nathaniel Marston has died of injuries sustained in a car crash. A talented actor, I wish his personal story ended differently- RIP”
And Michael Park posted a touching few sentenced on Twitter simply stating: “My heart is heavy with this news. Sweet dreams dear Nate.”
