Many One Life to Live fans were dumbstruck when seemingly Starr’s entire life blew up in her face, literally, when her boyfriend Cole and their little girl, Hope were trapped inside the car, following an accident involving Anthony Zacchara! With a big assist and thanks to having his tires shot out by presumably Sonny Corinthos, although in our minds, Kate is acting very weird these days and perhaps she had gone trigger happy, or her alter?
Kristen Alderson (Starr) who made her debut on General Hospital last week took to Twitter to share her sentiments on the story which obliterated her on-screen “family” unit! Kristen tweeted, “Sole fans-Trust me. I LOVE & will miss Starr & Cole. But don’t blame Ron Carlivati. Not his fault that both of our Cole actors r unavailable lol. I know this is a tragic storyline, but it’s VERY well written. There are great obstacles & triumphs ahead for Starr to encounter. Thank you for being constantly supportive. I just wanted to help ease the pain by telling you “business” wise why Cole isn’t … well alive. lol “
Alderson is referring to the fact that Van Hughes (Cole) is not available due to his schedule with his role in the touring company of American Idiot. And, in our recent On-Air On-Soaps interview with Hughes, he revealed about Cole’s demise and Starr’s plight, “It is not anybody’s decision what happens with us. It’s an accident, let’s put it that way. There is something that has nothing to do with either one of us, but you know how it goes in the soap world. People keep coming back and they are never really gone, and people are never really broken up, and so I like that prospect and the potential to play Cole Thornhart here and there.” So far remember soapers, the body had not been found or recovered! So it will be interesting to see if they ever find the body, or if later down the line Cole could reappear to stir up Starr’s life down the road, or if he is in the true sense “dead”.
Let us know what you thought about the story that now lands Starr squarely in Port Charles and clearly near Michael Corinthos!
