Daytime Mourns Roscoe Born

The daytime world suffered a heartbreaking loss on March 3 when veteran actor Roscoe Born passed away at the age of 69. A renowned soap hopper, he was best known to ABC soap fans as the evil Mitch Lawrence on ONE LIFE TO LIVE, to CBS viewers as the twisted Tom Fisher on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, and NBC fans as the nasty Trent Robbins on DAYS OF OUR LIVES. Not to mention his additional roles on SANTA BARBARA, THE CITY, ALL MY CHILDREN, AS THE WORLD TURNS, GUIDING LIGHT, and PASSIONS.

From his daytime debut in 1981 on RYAN’S HOPE all the way to his 2007 appearance on PASSIONS, Born worked with daytimes best and brightest over the decades. And many of them took to social media to express their admiration of the Daytime Emmy nominated actor and offer their sympathies to his loved ones.
