Slezak confirmed the news of her daughter’s sudden passing in a heartfelt message posted on her website, expressing the family’s devastation and requesting privacy during this difficult time.

The “One Life to Live” family is mourning the loss of Davies, who leaves behind her mother, father, and brother Michael. She was well-known for her role on the show and her contributions to the legacy of the soap opera. The details of any memorial or funeral services have not yet been announced.

Davies’ passing is a tragic loss for the entertainment industry, and her talent and presence on screen will be dearly missed. As fans and loved ones grieve her loss, memories of her work on “One Life to Live” will continue to live on. The impact of her portrayal of a young Viki Lord will be remembered by soap opera fans for years to come.
