In the most heartbreaking report we have written at On-Air On-Soaps, former One Life to Live star Nathaniel Marston died late Wednesday afternoon after valiantly trying to survive from injuries and complications sustained during his horrific car accident on October 30th in Nevada.

Nathaniel’s last prognosis was not good and doctors said that he would most likely live out the rest of his life as a quadriplegic.  Now, Nathaniel instead is in heaven.  Martston’s mother, Elizabeth Jackson, who has continued to post updates since her 40-year-old son’s tragic accident, broke the news of her son’s passing on her facebook page.

Jackson, in her grief and sorrow expressed, and related the news on Nathaniel’s passing:  “Dear family and friends, it is with a heavy heart that I share this devastating news. My beloved and cherished son, Nathaniel Marston, who was putting up the good fight until last night was not able to continue due to the traumatic and devastating nature of his injuries. Nathaniel passed away peacefully as I held him in my arms. Father William, myself and his second Mommy Lisa, and our dear friend Charlotte were by his bedside, he was not alone. His injuries, which Dr.’s did their best to heal were not responding to treatment and one after another his bodily functions failed to support his life. Had Nathaniel lived he would have required a ventilator and would never have been able to utter one more word and would have been sentenced to life as a quadriplegic. A condition that Nate would have never have been able to tolerate. By Gods love and mercy Nathaniel was spared this living hell and has traveled on to be with God, his cherished Grandmother Mary Jackson, Grandfather John Jackson and my sister his Aunt Nora…. God is merciful and because of his mercy God ended Nathaniel’s pain and suffering at 3:15 today PST in Reno, NV. Nathaniel now lives with Father God, surrounded with peace, love and light.  Know that I am deeply grateful for all of you for taking this tragic two week journey with me Nathaniel and our family. Your unfailing support, prayers, love and positive thoughts that you have sent our way, in what has been the worst two weeks of my life, have held all of us up giving us the strength to get through each hellish day.  Arrangements will be made for a memorial service in New York City, NY, Kauai, HI and Gerlach, NV. As soon as dates for these services are known they will be posted. Again, thank you for your prayers, your love, your kindness and your friendship which has allowed me and my family to be strong enough to be by my son’s side for these past 12 days. The outpouring of your love came as an unexpected gift and I don’t know how I will repay you for all of your love, prayers and support. Thank you for sharing your love, your experiences with me about how my treasured child, a man who grew into an individual who touched more lives than I ever could have known. XOXOXOXOXOOX”

My heart and blessings goes out to you, and the rest of Nates family and friends. I thoroughly enjoyed watching him on OLTL. He and Marcie were a fun couple, a strong couple that his fans loved to watch.
I am glad that God was merciful. He has brought your son home to a place he can live peacefully.

Blessings!

That was the saddest FaceBook post I have ever read. His mother showed so much grace and compassion sharing her grief with his fans. She could have just as easily told very one to leave the family alone but she continued to update everyone daily.

I can’t begin to express how sorry I am to hear this. It’s incredibly sad news. I’ll always remember Nathaniel from OLTL. Some actors don’t get a chance to play one memorable character, but Nathaniel played two different ones. God bless him and his loved ones at this difficult time.

I remember him playing Marcie’s love interest, Al. And when OLTL killed off his character, the fans fought to bring him back and they did and in a “Heaven Can Wait” storyline, he became Michael McBain. He will be missed. God bless his mother Elizabeth and give her the strength she needs. RIP

Devastating and heartbreaking…this is not the ending we would have written for Nate. The Michael and March storyline was so enchanting and I just adored how he brought Michael to life. It’s strange how you feel you know a character that follow on a soap. The cast of OLTL is so very missed and as a 30 year viewer I lost a family member today. Nate’s mom Elizabeth is so courageous and gracious to keep his family, friends and fans updated on Facebook with daily updates. Where do you gather the strength to do this…she is amazing and can’t imagine what she’s been through. God bless her and the entire family .

I am truly sorry for your loss. I can feel your pain in your words. Your son is at peace. My Brother was a year older than me and was in a car accident when he was 20 and he passed away when he was 41. He was a quadriplegic and I got to tell you it was a very very hard life for him. For this reason I know that your son is definitely in peace. He is in a good place. I will pray for you. My sympathies to you and your family.

We never know where life will take us so we have to live each day as if it were our last. My heartfelt sympathy to his Mom & family, and his friends.

General Hospital Receives Honor From Ruderman Family Foundation

General Hospital was one of five television shows that has been named and honored by the Ruderman Family Foundation for their accurate depictions of people with disabilities.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the soap received the recognition for the casting of Maysoon Zayid who portrayed Shilohs’s (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) lawyer, Zahra Amir.

Zayid is an actress and disabilities advocate living with cerebral palsy. In addition, Maysoon is also one of America’s first Muslim women comedians.  Zayid said landing on GH was a “lifelong dream,” after finding it difficult to land roles due to her disability.

Along with GH, the foundation’s seal of authentic representation went to: Netflix’s Tales of the City and Raising Dion, and BBC/HBO’s Years and Years and Audience’s Loudermilk, great company for the ABC daytime drama series to be included with.

Jay Ruderman, president of the Ruderman Family Foundation expressed in a statement. “By giving credit where credit is due in Hollywood, we hope to inspire a broader, longer-term, industry-wide sea change when it comes to authentically casting actors of all abilities.”

In addition, Frank Valentini, executive producer of General Hospital stated: “Our goal has always been to provide stories that are authentic and relatable for our viewers. Having the opportunity to welcome Maysoon Zayid onto the show was exciting for us. She is an incredible talent and was a perfect fit to guest-star as Zahra Amir. It takes all kinds of people to tell a story; especially those that are rich and entertaining enough to resonate with our audience.”

Networks To Preempt Daytime Programming For Donald Trump Impeachment Hearing Coverage

Just as your favorite soaps are kicking into high gear for November sweeps next week, comes the news that due to the House public impeachment hearings on President Donald Trump, daytime programming will endure several pre-mptions starting with the first two on Wednesday November 13th and Friday, November 15th.

CBS was the first network to announce their plans for their extensive coverage, and according to the Washington Post all other networks have followed suit.  By this move by the networks it gives the hearing some extra weight and exposure to the American voters and viewing audience.

So far, leading network coverage for CBS will be reportedly anchored by Norah O’Donnell and for ABC George Stephanopoulos.

On Wednesday, the hearings begin at 10am EST, the second is scheduled for Friday beginning at 11am EST.

William Taylor, the U.S. diplomat in the Ukraine, is scheduled to testify Wednesday and on Friday Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, is scheduled to testify.

The networks are expecting big numbers for covering the hearings, as they have in the past for impeachment proceedings and hearings.

No word yet how the soaps plan for you to see the episodes that don’t air at their regularly scheduled times, or if it shifts your soap viewing schedule by several days.
