LOS ANGELES, Jan. 21 (UPI) -- Actors who joined the cast of "General Hospital" when "One Life to Live" was canceled are temporarily leaving their new U.S. show, Daytime Confidential said.

Michael Easton, Roger Howarth and Kristen Alderson began reprising their "OLTL" roles of John McBain, Todd Manning and Starr Manning on "GH" when ABC canceled their soap in 2011, alongside "All My Children."

However, Prospect Park's The Online Network is developing an Internet version of "OLTL" and wants to bring back McBain and the Mannings, Daytime Confidential said. The characters are expected to remain on "GH" until at least February.

"Prospect Park realizes these three characters could initially help draw fans to the new 'One Life,'" a source told the soap opera news website. "There are ongoing talks between ABC and Prospect Park about the characters returning to 'General Hospital' at some point, which could be fine with [Prospect Park] as they eventually want to go much younger with their soaps."
