OLTL Favorite Eddie Alderson Reveals He Is Cancer-Free After Long Battle

Photo: EAldersonInsta

We must all celebrate and send our thoughts and love to Eddie Alderson, who was beloved as Llanview’s Matthew Buchanan on One Life to Live.  For Eddie shared in a touching post via his Instagram and across social media on Monday, that after his over three-year battle with lymphoma cancer, he is now cancer-free.

Not only did Eddie share the news but his proud sister, who loves him so much, former One Life and GH star, Kristen Alderson  (Ex-Starr and Ex-KikI) also weighed-in on the big moment in Eddie’s Life.

First, Eddie shared: “Today is a good day. A damn good day. For the most part I’ve been quite private and selective about updating the status of my health the last few years. I’ve shared some of the down times and some of the good times. Today, I had a scan that showed no active disease in my body. For the first time in the past 3 years, I am done chemo and treatments. To think of all the ups and downs I (we) have gone through, this day is worth celebrating. I’ve used the phrase “No Surrender” these past 3 years to hopefully inspire some of you that nothing is worth giving up over. I was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and look at where I am today. I am fucking proud of this day. I am proud of myself and ALL of the people who are fighting today or have fought. The impact that my family and friends and all of you’ve had on me has given me the drive to fight. I will always fight and spread awareness for #LLS This may not be the end of my fight, but this as damn close as you can get to shutting the damn door on cancer and saying GOODBYE. I will always be ready to fight. #NoSurrender 💚”

Then Kristen posted on her Instagram:  “No Surrender! Celebrating my amazingly brave, wonderful, & cancer-FREE brother tonight & EVERY DAY!!💚”

To say that we watched from afar at this young man’s ability to get through the ordeal of rounds of chemo, the ups and downs of treatment, and the disease, it has been nothing short of inspiring.

Now, share your well-wishes for Eddie via the comment section below!

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”

Luckinbill’s Black Label Media recently produced the war movie, 12 Strong in which he co-stared, while he was also one of the producers on the hit movie, La La Land.

Intrigued to see how Postscript turns out? Wish Thad would return as. J. T to Y&R for a another stint? Comment below.
