Sarah Brown, the first of four actresses to play the role of Carly Corinthos, will be making a return to . Interestingly enough, she won’t be there to take her old spot back (like recently did on ).  Brown will be making a splashy entrance as an entirely new character: Claudia Zacchara, mobster Johnny’s sister.  (Don’t try and question how this could happen; played a different character on the vampire-filled before she became Sam on the bloodsucker-less GH.)

Sarah, who originated the role of Carly back in 1996 (she left in 2001), will not only have a juicy face-to-face with the current Carly (played by ), she’ll have a heated encounter of the bedroom kind with her old hubby, Sonny Corinthos.  I can’t wait!  Brown currently has a one-year contract with the daytime drama and is scheduled to make her debut on Thursday, Jan. 31.

‘One Life to Live’ Star Arrested for Assault

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Daytime, ABC, Gossip, News, Rumors,

Nathaniel MarstonActor , who plays Dr. Michael McBain on ABC’s , was arrested Sunday morning in New York.  Unlike other celebrity scandals which usually involve misdemeanors, Marston is facing at least one felony charge.

The actor, who was reportedly enraged after exiting a cab, used a crate to assault three men; one of his victims suffered a broken leg.  It’s unclear what ignited his attack, though officers believe he was under the influence of a narcotic at the time.  Nathaniel, 32, was arrested for felony assault, reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a weapon and resisting arrest.  He was later transported to a local hospital where he was listed as ‘emotionally disturbed’.  This would not be Marston’s first brush with the law.  Back in 1999, while he was working on CBS’s , he was arrested for taking his rage out on an ATM machine.  (Dude, no money means no money.)

It is unknown what the producers of One Life to Live will do about the situation at this point; Nathaniel is currently involved in a major storyline on the show.  Meanwhile, a rep for told TVGuide.com that they ‘are aware of the incident and are reviewing the details.’  If fired from OLTL, this would be Marston’s second time around.  He was killed off back in 2003 (reportedly due to questionable work habits) but later brought back as a different character due to strong fan reaction.
