OLTL alum Robert Vaughn passes away

One Life to Live alum Robert Vaughn (ex-Bishop Corrington) has died at the age of 83.

Former One Life to Live star Robert Vaughn (ex-Bishop Corrington) passed away today at the age of 83. The actor has been battling acute leukemia.

"Mr. Vaughn passed away with his family around him," his manager, Matthew Sullivan, confirmed.

Vaughn was most known for his role as Napoleon Solo on NBC's 1960s spy series, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., but soap fans likely recognize him as OLTL's Bishop Corrington, a role he played in 1996, or from the British soap Coronation Street, on which he starred as Milton Fanshaw in 2012.

Vaughn is survived by his wife, Linda, son, Cassidy, and daughter, Caitlin.
