More sad news in the soap world. Actress Bronwen Booth, best known to daytime fans as Andy Harrison on ONE LIFE TO LIVE, died on April 4, 2023, at the age of 59 after a battle with ampullary cancer. “She felt the love around her to the last moment,” wrote Michelle Covello, who organized a GoFundMe to help support her during her cancer battle. “Her husband, Nick, was with her holding her hand, talking to her, and supporting her through her transition.”
“Bronwen and I believe that our life force, the energy, the soul, whatever you want to call it, is like all energy, it is transformed from one type to another and is never created or destroyed,” Nick wrote in a message on the page. “The love you have all shared with Bronwen throughout her life has already been transformed by you into the most stunning acts of kindness one could imagine.
“in her human form, Bronwen had limitations of time and space,” he continued. “Not anymore. As we collectively carry her love into the world may it give us all a clarity of purpose, a passion for empathy, and the grace and joy of a life well-lived.”
At the start of her acting career, Booth joined the cast of OLTL in 1989 in the role of Andy Harrison, Max Holden’s sister, and she remained with the soap until 1991. She went on to appear in movies like The Call of the Wild, Kayla, Glory & Honor, Airspeed, and Jackie Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. The actress could also be seen in episodes of series like LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT, SCRUBS, and NURSE JACKIE.
Booth wished that donations in her memory be made to Blue Rider Stables, a non-profit organization that offers therapeutic horseback riding. Our thoughts are with her family and friends during this difficult time.
