An actor known for his work on a daytime soap opera is reportedly on life support following a traffic collision Friday night. Variety reports that Nathaniel Marston, 40, known for his appearances on ABC’s “One Life to Live” from 2001-2007, was in critical condition.
Variety reports that Marston’s mother, Elizabeth Jackson, began posting Saturday about the collision, which reportedly happened near Reno, Nev. Jackson wrote: “Please pray for my son Nathaniel Marston. He was in a car accident last night and is in the intensive care on life support. Back and neck broken in several places. Other internal injuries. Please pray that he will recover and walk again.”
Marston’s mother updated his condition on Sunday, indicating that things were not going well. She reportedly wrote then: “If he lives he will be paralyzed from the neck down and will not breathe without a ventilator machine.”
Jackson also reported that Marston has a broken shoulder, a collapsed lung and broken ribs.
Marston played Al Holden on “One Life to Live” from 2001-2003, then returned to the series as Michael McBain from 2004-2007. Earlier in his career, he was Eddie Silva on the CBS soap opera “As the World Turns,” earning a nomination as Outstanding Male Newcomer from the Soap Opera Digest Awards.
