Because Phil Carey declined to continue on with One Life to Live this past spring, those behind the show had a decision to make:

How will they get rid of his long-time character, Asa Buchanan? Well, the choice has been made - and Asa will die off-screen.

The funeral will coincide with One Life to Live's 10,000th episode August 17 and will give past cast members a chance to reunite over this monumental passing. Those expected back for the show include:

  • Nathan Fillion
  • James DePaiva
  • Dan Gauthier
  • John Loprieno
  • Tonja Walker
