One Life to Live Character Descriptions
Played by Michael Easton
(October 1, 2003 to Present)
A 12-year-old boy runs through the hospital holding his father's hand just hours before his death. John, that boy of
12 had to go home to
his mother Eve and his brother Michael after his father was murdered and became
the head of the household. John promised himself that one day he would be a
police officer just like his father and catch the one responsible. It was not
until 25 years later and his move to Llanview that he was able to get the man
who murdered his father, Thomas McBain. The following is the story of the man
whose mission was to bring down a murderer.
In swaggered the dangerously gorgeous FBI agent posing as right-hand man to
the notorious Flynn Laurence. While trying to obtain evidence to take down bad
man Laurence, John met Natalie wielding a cue stick. Natalie unwittingly got
involved in an unsavory pool tournament which caused a whole heap of trouble.
The day after he married Natalie, Cristian fell victim to
Laurence and was thought dead.
John ended up making his home in Llanview and exchanging his FBI shield for an
LPD one. John was there for Natalie to blame for Cristian's death and then
lean on when the anger was gone. The sparks that were ignored before Cris’s
death and then not seen through the grief were finally recognized.
John found himself in his biggest Llanview case so far, The Music Box
murders. This case reintroduced him to the man who killed the only woman to whom
John had ever truly committed himself. John eventually took down Dr. Stephen
Haver, the murderer of love Caitlin Fitzgerald and many more. John and Natalie
still had those sparks but, for reasons unknown, there was very little acting on
During another case, John got close to the town’s gorgeous defense lawyer
Evangeline Williamson. They explored a beautiful relationship, but she wanted
more and he was incapable of giving her what she needed. The gorgeous twosome
ended their passionate relationship on friendly terms.
At this time in his life, he still had the death of his father hanging over
him, but John and Natalie finally took those steps that made them the couple we
thought they would become in 2003. John being John, he still had issues when it
came to relationships, which made it less than easy for the pair. John was
finally able to pin his father’s murder on the one responsible, Spencer Truman.
John found peace and wanted Natalie to become his wife, but it seemed his death
was to come instead of his proposal. Of course, he was not dead but severely
burned and thought to be dead. When Natalie and he were finally reunited she was
scared for his health, and he was obsessed with not letting Truman get away with
murder. Truman ended up murdered, but instead of the couple getting closer, they
grew apart. John liked to do things on his own, and Natalie was willing to do
anything, including lying to John and drugging him, for his own good.
Yet again, the gorgeous troubled man is alone but maybe not for long. Do you
think Marty and son Cole can reach that place that no one else has?
