On Halloween night, October 31st, former One Life to Live fan favorite Nathaniel Marston (Ex-Al and Ex-Michael) was involved a serious car accident that has rendered him in critical condition.  Marston’s mother, Elizabeth Jackson has been posting updates on her facebook page on her son’s medical status throughout the last 24 to 36 hours, and it is has been heartbreaking.

Jackson first reported:  “Please pray for my son Nathaniel Marston. He was in a car accident last night and is in the intensive care on life support. Back and neck broken in several places. Other internal injuries. Please pray that he will recover and walk again.”

For those who were concerned that alchocol or drugs were a part of the cause of Nathaniel’s car crash, Elizabeth related to his fans, friends, and long time colleagues: “Just spoke to highway patrol and tribal police. In case rumor mill gets going. Nate was sober according to cops.  Waiting to speak to Dr.  Please pray that Nate does not end up a parapalegic … neck broken and fracuted in neck vertabrea 3,4,5,6, and 7. Shoulder broken along with all ribs. Collapsed lung and pnenoma. Please please pray for him”

However, the updates became more intense when Elizabeth posted: “Spoke to Nates Dr. In all likely hood if he lives he will be paralyzed from the neck down and will not breathe without a ventilator machine. Oh my God please give me strength.”

LATEST UPDATE:  On Monday afternoon:  Jackson posted an update to her facebook page which said that Nathaniel went into surgery – stating:  “Nate was able to decide and express very clearly this morning that he is not going to give up without a fight,” she wrote. “He is going into surgery at 3:00 this afternoon. The goal is to get him breathing on his own. The Dr said that there is a good chance that he will recover the use of upper body movement and a slim chance that he will walk again. Recovery will take 2 or more years but where there is life there is hope. Nate has never walked away from a fight and he is determined to win this one….  Both Nate and I appreciate your love prayers and support.”

Marston is dear friend’s whith his former One Life to Live cast mate Michael Easton who posted on his facebook page, a photo of himself with Nathaniel relating: “Please say a prayer for Nathaniel.”

Nathaniel started his soap career as Eddie Silva on As the World Turns.  He next played Al Holden on One Life to Live from 2001-2003, and then after much outcry was brought back to the series as Michael McBain from 2004-2007.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Nathaniel and his family at this time.   On-Air On-Soaps will continue to bring you updates on the situation as they warrant.  Please share your thoughts and prayers for Nathaniel in the comment section below!

He did, Mo. So young. It seems that he has been under a dark cloud for a while. Poor guy. I remember him being fired from OLTL due to his arrest after a brawl in Manhattan.
I pray that his luck will turn for the better and be whole again. No one deserves this….I hope he’s not in pain. And, his poor mother must be a mess!!

Mo

Yes, he has had a lot of probs, some I would say were of his making, but no one deserves this. His mother posted that he did well in the surgery. She sounds very frantic indeed, no surprise.

Hopefully she knows that a lot of people hope he gets better. I didn’t watch OLTL when he was on, but I hope he can improve.

When I hear news like this about strangers, my heart always goes out to the victim and their families. My heart is doubly affected about Nathaniel. I only knew him from his work but he did such a fantastic job of bringing his characters to life. He did a great job with Al but I was partial to Michael McBain. He truly made that character come alive so I guess in some way I feel like I knew him even though I didn’t. I truly feel for his poor mother, family and friends. He’ll be in my thoughts and prayers. So tragic.

Omg this is horrible. I pray for him to get better, at the same time it would not be great for him to be completely paralyzed and not be able to breathe without a ventilator machine! I send prayers to him, his mother and all of their loved ones!

Mo

I get that. It wouldn’t be much of a life.

What caused the accident? Was anyone else involved? So said any way you slice it. I believe he was married.

I don’t think his mother has said how it happened, just that police are saying that alcohol wasn’t involved.

Dear God have mercy and bring peace to his family at this time. I pray for a miracle as Your will is done in Jesus’ name.

From her latest post, it sounds like there is a good chance he will have upper body movement and a slim chance he will walk again. Recovery will be 2 or more years.

Here is his mom’s update from Facebook just a few hours ago:

Nate update: Nate was able to decide and express very clearly this morni that he is not going to give up without a fight. He is going into surgery at 300 this afternoon. The goal is to get him breathing on his own. The Dr said that there is a good chance that he will recover the use of upper body movement and a slim chance that he will walk again.

Doubt spell checking is the concern on this post? Not really right up there with the sadness of this particular board.

So right, Clh. It’s tragedies like this that should make us stop and realize what’s really important…critiquing spelling whilst reading of Nathaniel’s plight is beyond comprehension.

So many times over the decades, when my soap addiction was in full swing and (sadly) all-consuming, I would agonize and worry over many plotlines and the predicaments of the characters for whom I cared. I was so wrapped up in the story, I invested so much energy, effort, time, and emotion. Even at this site, I will sometimes provide impassioned views on something I like or something I don’t like that is going on in the soaps. Bottom line: all of these efforts are just ridiculous…

What is happening in the life of Nathaniel Marston is REAL. He is a young man whose way of life has been altered forever. I was just one of many of his fans that enjoyed his work on OLTL. Usually, prayer is not a daily exercise for me, but I will make the effort now. My genuine prayers and thoughts go out to Nathaniel, his mother, and his entire circle of family and friends. What is happening in Nathaniel’s life is what is TRULY important. Please, God, let him recover…

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.
