Stars took to social media to remember Roscoe Born (ex-Mitch, ONE LIFE TO LIVE et al), who passed away at the age of 69.
Greg Rikaart (Kevin, Y&R)
Roscoe Born was a talented and generous actor and a kind man to boot. He would often say that everything he did was for his daughter. My thoughts are with her and his family today. #RIP
Kristen Alderson (ex-Starr, ONE LIFE TO LIVE)
Roscoe was always so incredibly warm & sweet to me & my family! I’m so lucky that I knew him & got to work with him. One of the BEST villains to ever exist in Llanview! RIP Roscoe
Melissa Archer (ex-Natalie, ONE LIFE TO LIVE)
I can’t put into words how incredibly heart broken I am to hear of Roscoe Born’s passing. He was an incredible partner to work with and a master in his craft. I can say without a doubt that some of my favorite work on Oltl was with Roscoe. He will be greatly missed
Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH, ex-Brody, ONE LIFE TO LIVE)
I learned some important lessons from this man. I think about him often. Gonna miss him. Wander on, Roscoe.
Darin Brooks (Wyatt, B&B)
Oh man…Roscoe… You were an amazingly talented, generous actor, always giving your best for other people to shine… I know this because I had the honor of working with you back on @nbcdaysand I remember in between takes, you turned to me and said “Ya know, the last time I played someone’s abusive father they won an Emmy… and you could too!” And yeah, we laughed but that year… I did win the Emmy! And it was because of you man! My scene partner in those scenes! Wouldn’t have had it any other way! Pushing me to “Go man! Keep going!” You didn’t care how evil your character was, you just went all in for me! To get the reactions out of me! And I am forever grateful… It was an honor and a pleasure! #RIP brother…
Eddie Alderson (ex-Matthew, ONE LIFE TO LIVE)
I will miss going to ball games with you, #RosoeBorn may you Rest In Peace now…thanks for all the great memories
Andrea Evans (ex-Tina, ONE LIFE TO LIVE et al)
So sad to hear of the passing of my old friend Roscoe Born. I loved working with him. He was a sweet, dear soul. And whenever I hear Sade’s Smooth Operator I will smile & think of him. RIP.
Lisa LoCicero (Olivia, GH)

One of the greatest. What a presence.

Wonderful talented actor… rest in peace.

Mitch Laurence as portrayed by Roscoe Born was one of my all-time favorite TV villains as a teenager watching One Life to Live. I was privileged to get to write for him, and while I eventually sent Mitch to hell, I sincerely hope Roscoe is in heaven… #oltl #RIPRoscoeBorn
