Starr and Cole are THROUGH on One Life To Live…


One Life To Live characters Starr and Cole, played by actors Kristen Alderson and Brandon Buddy, are seen in photographs posted in Lucky’s Arcade, on of the locations used in local filming April 2008. The popular on-screen couple, who shot much of their teen pregnancy/runaway storyline in Seaside Heights, have broken up on screen.

Starr and Cole are THROUGH on One Life To Live:  One Life To Live characters Starr and Cole, played by actors Kristen Alderson and Brandon Buddy, the key actors in scenes filmed April 2008 in Seaside Heights, are officially through on the soap opera. Readers might remember that Starr and Cole ran away to “Virginia Beach” on the show, but the scenes were actually shot at places like Lucky’s Arcade, The Kearney Avenue Lifeguard Headquarters/Information Center, The Kearney Avenue Crabbing Dock, The Aztec Resort, and the Casino Pier.  At that time, Starr had recently learned she was pregnant, had decided against an abortion while at the doctor’s office, and had run away with Cole to avoid her evil-on-the-show father Todd Manning. Since returning to Llanview, the fictional city where OLTL is set, Starr has decided to give up her baby for adoption. Cole initially fought Starr in court over the matter, but eventually allowed for the eventual adoption. All the soap opera unpleasantness was too much for the star-crossed romance, resulting in the breakup of the on-star couple, once nicknamed “Sole” by their legions of fans. During the height of the Starr/Cole romance, Kristen Alderson blogged, and continues to blog, daily about her on-screen teen pregnancy drama, and she and Brandon Buddy also appeared nationally on The View, discussing the envelope-pushing storyline. Kristen Alderson was also honored by the Candie’s foundation during their “Event To Prevent” in May 2008.


ON-SCREEN COUPLE NOW THROUGH Kristen Alderson and Brandon Buddy are seen in Seaside Heights during a break from the April 2008 shoot. In real life Kristen (Starr) just turned 17, while Brandon Buddy (Cole) is 23.
