The joy of many Sole fans was quickly crushed when news broke that plans for Brandon Buddy to return to ONE LIFE TO LIVE as Cole had to be scrapped, and he was ultimately replaced by Broadway actor Van Hughes. Now, for the first time, Buddy is speaking out.
"I wanted to say that I am so sorry that I was unable to make a return to OLTL as I intended due to personal family issues," the actor tweeted. "I cherish the time that I had on the show and always will. The fans mean more to me then words can express. I'm devastated about this! Again I am so sorry! Thank you all for your love and support! It really helps me in times like this. Thank you and God bless!"
