Two One Life to Live stars are in different phases of contract talks with the network. According to show sources, Trevor St. John (Todd Manning) reached a deal with the show and then changed his mind - but his sometimes on-screen love interest, Renée Elise Goldsberry (Evangeline Williamson) has yet to reach a deal.

It doesn't look good for Evangeline, as the show is currently planning to write the character off the show. Sources say that Evangeline will fall into a coma and remain that way until there is a resolution between the two sides.
If the coma storyline sounds familiar, it should; last year the show scripted a coma storyline when contract talks with Hillary B. Smith (Nora Hanen) broke down. Fans were outraged and flooded the show with email, letters and phone calls. Late last year, Smith was stunned when the network approached her with the offer of a new, long-term contract.
Goldsberry joined the cast of One Life to Live in February 2003, in what was to have been a short-term, recurring role. By April, the show offered the actress a contract. Prior to joining the show, Goldsberry appeared on Broadway in The Lion King. She has also originted the role of Nettie in the Broadway version of The Color Purple.
