Talk about bring your family to work day! One Life to Life star Robert S. Woods (Bo) is going to have doubled the fun when the 40th anniversary episode of the show tapes, due to his wife and son making an onscreen appearance.
Entertainment Weekly online reports that Woods’s real life wife and son will be seen on your tubes starting July 21 during a storyline that centers on Bo and Rex (John-Paul Lavoisier).

Now Mrs. Woods’s slated to play Dallas and Renee, who happens to be the deceased Asa’s (Phil Carey) wife while the junior Woods Tanner, will play a younger Bo at the end of the story.
*Whew!* Lot to take in huh?
