Finally! And we mean finally, John McBain will learn that after a year or more of being denied his child that he is the bio-dad of cute little baby Liam, and according to TV Guide it all happens on next Tuesday’s, November 15th episode of One Life to Live!
TVG chatted with Michael Easton (John) and not only talked how the reveal goes down, but the future of Jolie, and his decision to continue with One Life when it moves online via Prospect Park. Here are a few excerpts below!
Easton on how the truth about little Liam is revealed: “For a story that got dragged out, it’s resolved pretty quickly. I had nightmares of people on rooftops, and guns flashing and searchlights and rain, with Brody becoming a desperate, crazed lunatic when the truth came out. We’ve done that on our show before. A lot. Instead, they resolve it really nicely between the characters, I think.”
Easton on if the Liam reveal will finally bring John and Natalie together: “They’ve contrived some circumstances that once again keep him and Natalie at arm’s length, and in the middle is Liam. I don’t think two people who’ve been through all this would let that happen. They’d be spending an enormous amount of time together, but the story is what it is.”
Easton on his decision to put his name to Prospect Park’s version of OLTL online: “No one asked for my blood on the dotted line or anything like that. They basically said, “If you’re unhappy after a period of time, take off.” Obviously, they haven’t yet made their deal with the union but if this is to continue I want to be a part of it. We were all so down when the network cancelled us but this new team came in with really positive energy and enthusiasm. They feel what we do is good and worth saving. Not only that but they feel they can improve the show. There are so many jobs at stake. You’d have to be a bit of a Scrooge to not to jump in and support that. Prospect Park has been getting a lot of pessimism and maybe even some grief, from the establishment at the unions and they needed some of us to chip in and support this thing. If it helps move things forward, I was happy to step up. They’re not out of the woods yet, but they’re bright, amazing guys. ”
So are you ready for John to finally be reunited with his son, after so many people came between him and Liam? Let us know!
