Casting is now in full swing for Prospect Park’s revival of One Life to Live and this time it appears from various reports that they are looking to either age, or are having to just plain recast the roles of Matthew Buchanan (last played by Eddie Alderson) and Destiny (Shenell Edmonds)! When One Life went off the airwaves on ABC, Destiny had just given birth to Matthew’s son, Drew. Just, how is this story going to pick-up?
In addition, word from Soap Opera Digest is that the series is also casting the role of “Billy” who is said to be, “Caucasian, 30s, ruggedly handsome. Charming yet naïve when it comes to relationships. He falls in love first and thinks second. He is a man of strong values who puts family before all else.” SOD alluded to the fact that the last Billy on One Life, was played by Ryan Phillipe, and who was the first gay teen character on daytime. Could it be him? Or a brand new character? Or a character we have already known on the Llanview canvas in which they are just switching the names for casting purposes although that may be a stretch?
What do you think of the news that the show is recasting Matthew and Destiny? What actors would you suggest? Who would you suggest for the role of Billy? Let us know your thoughts!
