Kristen Alderson and Brandon Buddy
Brandon Buddy (Cole), Brittany Underwood (Langston) and Kristen Alderson (Starr) recently examined their characters' grieving process on One Life to Live.

They spoke to Soap Opera Weekly about new developments on the series:

Soap Opera Weekly: Starr has been rude lately, especially to Langston. What's with that?
Kristen Alderson: Best friends always have arguments. Starr prefers things her way.

Weekly: Like her parents?
Alderson: Sort of like them (laughs). Also, she's so close with Cole and loves him so much. If another girl says she knows what Cole would do it's like, "No! You don't know what Cole would do, I know what Cole would do." It was, "Don't act like you know him better than me." She was being very protective.

Brittany Underwood: It was kind of harsh, some of the things Starr was saying. Especially after everything that Langston has done for Starr, the blows were a little below the belt. I understand why she was upset. All Starr wants to do is help and be there. There's not so much that Starr can do, because Langston knows more about (losing a parent). Starr hates not being able to relate or understand the way Langston can understand Cole.

Weekly: Cole and Langston are headed for grief counseling. How was that?
Underwood: It was weird. It was a small group of people. I was nervous to have only a handful of kids in this small circle, all looking at me. It felt like we were really there, like we really had to share this with people we didn't know in this small space. It's a little scary. Brandon did an excellent job with his speech. I think it went well.

Weekly: How does Cole like the grief sessions?
Brandon Buddy: He had to do it when his dad died, so he has kind of the upper hand on the whole situation. But what kid wants to sit there after a parent dies and talk about it with a bunch of their peers? It is just not a situation most people want to be in.
