OLTL Hunk Gets A Deal!


Just days after ONE LIFE TO LIVE's Sean Ringgold (Shaun) signed a deal with ABC, the soap has announced that Lenny Platt (Nate) has been upped to a contract player as well! Platt made his OLTL debut in April as a castmember of Starr X'd Lovers: The Musical. Nate quickly became romantically involved with Danielle and soon after, learned that he was a Ford brother.

"I was brought on for the musical episodes. When I found out that I was going to be kept on and this storyline was going to be developing, I was excited as an actor because I usually tend to gravitate toward more dark material," Platt tells Soaps In Depth. "I really found it interesting that we had this criminal background and our father was this terrible person and that's the reason I left town, because my mother was in fear of her life. These dramatic elements, as an actor, I really could grab on to. Not that the musical wasn't fun, but I was really excited to get down to what I, as an actor, am more interested in and what appeals to me."
