When Llanview’s Charlie Banks decided to go ahead and have an all-out affair with his wife Viki’s arch-enemy Echo Di Savoy (Kim Zimmer), that could only have set off a big red flag that the loveable Charlie is not the perfect human being and hubby. After all he has now betrayed the heroine of One Life to Live! Not good.

So word out today from Soaps In Depth twitter feed that than has been skyrocketing around the soap world is that actor, Brian Kerwin is on his way out at OLTL!  Although no official word has been handed down by an ABC or a OLTL spokesperson, multiple sources have reported to Soaps In Depth that it is indeed true.

Kerwin will be leaving the canvas as his character is being written out in a storyline-dictated move. With Erika Slezak’s (Viki) 4oth anniversary on the show about to happen, and the milestone being celebrated on a special episode in April, what do you think this could mean for Viki? We have our thoughts! What do you think? Let us know.

I think it sucks! The powers that be are idiots. I think Frons hated the fact that Viki/Charlie had been one of the most popular couples. The show backburnered the couple because of this. To let a talent like this go is just stupid!

maybe Viki finds out about Charlie and Echo and kicks him to the curb!

I say bring back the uber-talented, Emmy winning John Wesley Shipp back as Eddie Ford’s twin. He can romance Viki, Echo or Dorian.

Charlie has been a naughty boy, n’est-ce pas?! I will miss Brian’s performances though!

I don’t keep up with this soap but when I use to watch it I loved Viki with Ben!

Viki would not stand for the affair with Echo. His character was destroyed by the writers. He was wimpy and no match for Viki. I’m not happy to see Brian Kerwin out of a job, but I am happy to see Viki free for something bigger and better. I just hope it is not Clint.

Are you kidding me? After seeing Viki with Ben and now Charlie the chemistry was undeniable and I’m sorry to say I see no chemistry with Viki and Clint I don’t like that pairing at all! Big mistake!!! I would love to see Mark Derwin back the ratings would soar if he came back!!!!

I’ll miss Brian Kerwin but the writers turned Chrlie into a wimp and a cheat. I think they need to discover Ben Davidson’s twin and bring Mark Derwin back!
And Paul…I hope Zimmer is on her way out…can’t stand her or the character she plays.

I agree with you 100 percent! I wish they would persuade Brian Kerwin to stay but if not bringing Mark Derwin back would be the best thing the writers could ever do! Viki needs love in her life she is so romantic when paired with the right actor ! Her and Ben were so romantic could never get enough of them together!!!

I guess there’s no way to ever know what really goes on behind the scenes, is there? I like the idea of John Wesley Shipp coming back as Eddie Ford’s twin. Kim Zimmer’s “Echo” is becoming a good character. The writers decide how each will be perceived, so I have to remember that. Of course, I didn’t like Echo at first, but she didn’t write her lines.

It’s a drag that Charlie is leaving. I still hate that Kim and Stacey are gone. Speaking of Stacey, that baby she had with Rex somehow disappeared.

I agree – Charlie was not a good match for Viki. He was wimpy and instead of trying to handle their problems together, he turned to other sources for comfort. Good Bye and Good Luck!

cool…..more money available to bring back the one and only Roger Howarth….

I can’t believe what they have done to Charlie Banks. Letting such a talented actor go is a huge mistake! Having Charlie cheat on Viki is something he would never do. He has been sold out to keep the younger crowd on the show.

It really worries me the direction this show will take.

Does this mean a future Vicki/Clint/Echo triangle? Hope so, I love watching these 3 great actors.

Is Kim Zimmer staying? I certainly hope so, because she has chemistry with every actor she works with.

Brian Kerwin was a gift. Brilliant actor. The direction his character turned is disgusting. Look forward to moving on in a more Viki centered show

I WISH THAT JESSICA WOULD BREAK UP WITH BRODY AND GO AFTER WILL. I MISS JASON SHANE SCOTT. HE IS SO AMAZING. SO IS CATHERINE HICKLAND, KALE BROWNE, JESSICA MORRIS. I REALLY MISS THEM.

I can’t believe that Brian Kerwin would be leaving One Life he is wonderful with Erika Slezak, I think it’s very sad she finally found love again after losing the love of her life Mark Derwin! I wish the powers that be would keep Brian Kerwin on the show or if not bring back Mark Derwin they were fabulous together!!!

Lucille Ramella

I want to add to my comments that I would not want to see Viki and Clint together personally I don’t think they have great chemistry at all! She has wonderful chemistry with Brian Kerwin and of course she had fabulous chemistry with Mark Derwin!!!

I LOVE BRAIN KERWIN THE SAME WAY THAT I LOVE MARK DERWIN. . CHARLIE HAS BEEN A SWEET HEART. IT’S NOT CHARLIE’S FAULT THAT ECHO CAME BACK TO TOWN. IF SHE STAYED AWAY CHARLIE AND VIKI STILL BE TOGETHER RIGHT NOW. CHARLIE AND VIKI ARE A LOVE STORY JUST LIKE SHE WAS WITH BEN. I WISHED THAT BEN AND HIS FAMILY LEFT. KALE BROWNE, CATHERINE HICKLAND, JASON SHANE SCOTT,JESSICA MORRIS, DARLENE VOGEL AND SUSA MINSER. I WISHED THAT THE WRITERS WOULD WRITEN BETTER STORY LINES FOR CHARLIE. I’M A HUGE CHARLIE FAN AS MUCH THAT I’M STILL A BEN DAVIDSON’S FAN. I THOUGHT IT WAS STUPID TO KILL BEN OFF. SAME WITH SAM AND JEN AND GRACE. I’M STILL A HUGE FAN OF THE RAPPAPORT FAMILY. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE WILL AND JESSICA TO BE LOVERS AGAIN.

I WAS SO STUNNED TO LEARN ABOUT BRIAN KERWIN LEAVING. HE WAS SO MUCH FUN TO WATCH. I LOVE HIS SCENES WITH JOHN BROTHERTON AS JARED. HE ALSO DID A GREAT JOB WORKING WITH ERIKA SELZACK AS VIKI. I LOVE IT WHEN THEY FIRST FALLEN IN LOVE AND GOT MARRIED. HE IS SO GREAT WITH BREE WILLIAMSON. I WAS SO HAPPY TO SEE VIKI GETTING LOVE AGAIN. IT WAS SO HARD FOR HER TO LOSE BEN. GOOD LUCK BRIAN KERWIN. I WILL MISS YOU SO MUCH. THANKS FOR MAKING ONE LIFE TO LIVE SO ENTERAINING AND INTRESTING. I LOVED YOU EVER SINCE YOU FIRST AIRED. AND I STILL DO JUST LIKE JOHN BROTHERTON.

Since Brian is Leaving, Take Kim Zimmer with Him. She isnt as good as she once was in the “Acting” department. Also, When a Character has the nerve to Mess with “Vicki” then,,,,,,The Fans stand up and make a Stir. Get Rid of Kim Zimmer when Brian Leaves One Life to Live.
