One Life To Live stars revived by General Hospital

Jan 11, 2012 at 10:12 p.m. ET

This is epic for any Todd, Blair, Starr and John fans. The One Life to Live actors who portray the iconic soap personalities are checking into General Hospital -- as their characters.

Todd always said nothing could keep him from his one true love, Blair -- apparently, not even a canceled show.

We get choked up just looking at this picture of Todd (Roger Howarth), Starr (Kristen Alderson) and Blair (Kassie DePaiva) as a happy family knowing we'll never see them on One Life To Live again. Sad face, indeed.

Soap fans grab your Kleenex and dry your eyes, because the powerful family is heading to another soapy show and they're bringing John McBain (Michael Easton) with them.

One Life To Live stars Roger Howarth, Kassie DePaiva, Kristen Alderson and Michael Easton are taking a bow on Friday's finale and then hopping over to the town of Port Charles on General Hospital.

Here's the deets: The stars will bring their characters to GH -- not develop new ones!

This is huge news, folks, especially for those who grew up with the Manning family and have come to fall back in love with Blair and Todd since Howarth's return to the show.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, so what if we talk like they're real people.

In a report via TVLine, new General Hospital showrunner and old One Life To Live head honcho, Frank Valentini, said, "We have a very exciting story planned for the citizens of Port Charles, with Sonny Corinthos at the center of it!"

He added, "I am confident viewers and fans alike will be excited for the arrival of John (played by Easton), Starr (Kristen Alderson), Blair (Emmy nominee Kassie DePaiva) and Todd (Emmy winner Roger Howarth). Incorporating characters from One Life to Live continue the legacy of the show as we weave them into General Hospital."

Fans of One Life To Live are getting the chance to relive some of their favorite moments as the show comes to a close this Friday.

Like many of you, we will miss the sudsy goodness it brought to our lives.

Here's to the next chapter for Todd, Blair, Starr and John -- and the stars that play them!
