Excellent interview…they are proud of their characters and they should be, shame ABC couldn’t be as proud and continue to share their story with us.

Thank you, Michael for posting up the interview video. I’m going to try and savour everything that’s coming up for the Kyle, Oliver and Sierra Rose storyline for the weeks to come. I want to express my praise and admiration to both Brett Claywell and Scott Evans for bringing to these characters. I wasn’t just a fan of OLTL only because of the KISH storyline. I, was a fan of the show, because of their DIVERSITY and their choices of showing how a community can have people from all walks of life, learning how to interact and deal with each… Read more »

SHAME on OLTL!!! SHAME on them! I’ve been pissed over their complete and utter lack of growth for Todd – and now this – one of the relationships I enjoyed.

And I’m mainstream as hell – 60 years old Wasp lol.

I’m DONE! I’m taking them off the DVR today — and that’s it.

Good wishes to the men that played KISH.

such a great interview with two wonderful actors who will be greatly missed on OLTL….they are so amazing together as Kyle and Oliver
and will forever be my favourite couple….theirs has been the most beautiful and romantic love story i have ever seen and when they leave Llanview this once longtime loyal viewer will leave with them.
ABC is making a major mistake in letting their two most talented actors go and going to have reason to regret it….

Michael,
I had to let you know how much I loved this interview with Brett and Scott. It was especially touching given the news that their characters are being written out of the show. Their obvious love for their characters and for one another brought tears to my eyes. They are a class act and am confident that the power of their work , their relationship, and their words will live on much longer than OLTL.

Thank you and great job!

Amazing interview, and that makes it even harder to realize that the guys will be written out of the show! The chemistry between them on screen was so wonderful, they portrayed their characters as Oliver and Kyle so good! They are the reason I got hooked up on OLTL at all!! The story, the actors, the chemistry is so rare, such a shame that it has to end like this!!! Scott and Brett all the best and thank you so much for this amazing/loving story <3 !!

Michael, thank you so much for this interview. It made me laugh and smile, which I haven’t been able to do since yesterday’s news broke. It’s all the more heartbreaking to know that this excellent working relationship has come to an end without Brett and Scott even knowing that an expiration date had been placed on KISH. Scott and Brett gave us such a great beautiful gift with their portrayal of Oliver and Kyle, and no one – not ABC Daytime, “the mainstream audience” and the haters – can ever take that away from us. Thanks to you, Michael, and… Read more »

Great great interview, I will miss them so very much together on OLTL. They told MY story! Once Kish is gone, OLTL will no longer be recorded in my household.

Scott mentioned my favorite Kish moment that gave me goosebumps, when ‘Kyle’ kissed ‘Oliver’s’ hand in the ‘afterglow’. I had wondered if that was ad libbed.

And by the way, Brett looks hot in glasses!

Thank you so much Michael, this is a wonderful interview. I don’t know if this is possible, but is there any way you can put this videon on itunes just like your podcasts? I have downloaded the long interview that Damon from We Love Soaps did with Scott and the short one he did with Brett on OLTL moving day but I believe you are the only one to have a video interview with them together (besides the little behind the scenes one of their photo shoot). Since there probably won’t be another one, especially this long, I imagine that… Read more »

Amazing wonderful interview. Both men are so soulful and intelligent, and gorgeous. So often you read or watch interviews that focus on the fluff, this was so much better and so much more. I still cannot believe that they are going to written off. Shame on ABC and all involved in this horrendous, cowardly decision. I wish the actors nothing but the best in their career. I personally will never watch the show again.

An amazing interview. Thank you, Michael.

One of the things that made the Kyle/Oliver relationship so believable was the friendship between Scott and Brett, which was on display here. Gutted doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel about the decision to end this amazing journey with two fantastic actors. I loved both their comments about the show, and their great chemistry.

I wish Scott and Brett the best, and wherever they go next–onwards and upwards–I’ll be following.

I love these guys! They are so real and without any pretension. You just want to root for them all the way. I’m saddened by what is coming down, but I’m sure they won’t have any trouble getting good roles from here on. They are really outstanding men. Their real life relationship is so nice and grounded. I am very sorry that the “higher ups” found it necessary to close out their story. I hope that their last episodes will knock everyone’s socks off. Good luck to you both. It has been nice being in your company….

Thank you for your interview with Scott and Brett and for the insightful questions you asked them. It is bittersweet seeing them here now knowing what we do but I am resolved to honor the beautiful characters and story they helped craft until the very end. The breathtakingly beautiful romance that is Kish was the only reason I started watching OLTL besides Roxy and when they are gone so am I. Shame on the network for blaming their poor ratings on Kish and not having the decency to tell the actors before breaking the news. Brett and Scott have created… Read more »

My partner and I (17 years together) have watched OLTL for years, but started watching regularly when Kish came on the scene. We TiVo and watch every episode. Once Kish is gone, so will we be.

Also, storylines like Ford and Langston suck and that’s the stereotypical soap opera BS that should be excised.

i have watched OLTL since 1983. During ABC’s upset over the whole Alam Lambert thing, i wondered why they were so bothered when at the same time, they had KISH on OLTL. I guess now that KISH, much to my disappointment, are being written out, I have my answer. SHAME on you OLTL and ABC.
Scott Evens is a very attractive man, and the gay fans are losing out big time.

Speaking of OLTL, I do not understand how they could possibly have a premature baby who just had heart surgery, go home from the hospital so soon. Talk about taking poetic license. This would not happen!

Great interview. The guys obviously had no idea what was about to happen. Although I didn’t care for the direction the sl was taking (custody battle) I really liked the couple and they were the reason I watched OLTL. If rumors that unprofessional behavior on the part of the actors is responsible for the cancellation of the characters are true, I hope TPTB will recast the roles and bring the characters back soon. Daytime needs a dedicated and loving gay couple as role models to counteract the many negative stereotypes. Claywell and Evans did a great job, but Kish should… Read more »

I agree, the interview was awesome, and clearly
Scott and Brett had no idea what was in store for them.
as for the rumors of unprofessional behavior, both men deny the allegation and I am one of many who believe them. Brett and Scott are fine young actors who have a lot to offer. I hope they are grow through this experience and that we get the opportunity to see them more in other endeavors.

These two young gentlemen are “class acts.” I will miss them so much. In my opinion, they were the two best actors on the show. The fan base they generated in such a short period of time (6 months) is phenominal. Just imagine what they could have done had they stayed with the show and not been terminated. The big loser here is OLTL. Kish was the next supercouple in the making. Too bad OLTL couldn’t see the treasure buried in their own back yard! Instead they have chosen to promote the absolute worst couple in daytime, not to mention… Read more »

i disagree vehemently that the roles of Kyle and Oliver could be recast……Brett and Scott created these characters with great love and dedication and their amazing chemistry that made them so special can never be duplicated….they simply cannot be replaced…
They are and always will be the only Kish……….

I am so sad and angry that we are losing Kish. Scott and Brett are such talented actors and had a chemistry that doesn’t come along too often. The story was unique on ABC daytime, and many of us were looking forward to watching Kish raising Sierra Rose and continuing their careers.

April 16th also will be my last day watching.

i’ve done it too, i stop wathciing OLTL after my favorite couple Kish is leaving the show, so i say, fuck them who is homophobia for forcing my two best gay guy ever for leaving the show. i start to write my own story for oliver and Kyle, i write the novels about them but, i cant find where i save the file, guess i have to rewrite the gay love story i have been writing, their story would be the forth gay romance love story i ever wrote

I was watching this interview again this morning and everytime I see it I am amazed with OLTL decision to get rid of these 2 wondefull young man and great actors. Their friendship off the screen is so obvious and they were looking forward to the next fase of their storyline and so were their fans not only in the USA but all over the world. It’s a shame what OLTL has become and I have been a viewer for over 20 years off this show and have many people see come and go but nothing angered me a much… Read more »

Excellent interview of the two guys. It is just sad that the producers have decided to end the Kish story, (BIG SHAME) which I believe is the greatest, inspiring, admirable gay storyline ever shown on tv. It encompasses the real situations that a lot of people are in and made it so convincing and real. All respect and admiration to these two great people. I wish that they will bring Kish back on OLTL. I believe, from where and how their story has started will develop into a very interesting and brilliant story weaving into the Llanview community. It will… Read more »

I really do not use to watch soap operas, actually, I do not watch TV at all, BUT, after this great discovery, I’ve been addicted to Brett and Scott’s storyline.

Y&R’s Camryn Grimes and Fiancé Brock Powell Talk On Their Roles as Mrs. Claus and Santa in ‘Mickey Saves Christmas’

Two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Camryn Grimes (Mariah, The Young and the Restless) has been involved in a very special passion project in more ways than one!  Now, everyone will be able can see it, and hear it, when Grimes voices the role of Mrs. Claus opposite her real-life fiancé and voiceover star, Brock Powell as Santa in Mickey Saves Christmas.

The new stop-motion holiday special premieres Sunday, November 27th (7:00-7:30 p.m. EST) on ABC, Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney XD, and Monday, November 28 on Disney+ and Hulu.  It features Disney icons: Mickey, Minnie and the gang, who are sent to the North Pole on a quest to save Christmas and find the true meaning of the holiday.

Camryn and Brock Powell became engaged earlier this year on January 7th, which also happened to be Camryn’s 32nd birthday. How the two met all comes back to the world of voiceover and Disney, as you will learn.

Michael Fairman TV chatted with the real-life lovebirds to preview Mickey Saves Christmas, how they wound up voicing the important voices of Christmas, Santa and Mrs. Claus, and just what Brock thinks of Camryn’s Genoa City alter-ego Mariah being married to Tessa (Cait Fairbanks), and more.  Is Brock #TeamTeriah? Check out what they shared with us below.

The two of you were actually introduced by Bill Farmer, the voice of Goofy! How did that happen?

BROCK:  So, Bill Farmer is my mentor, and through him, that was the first time I actually met Camryn.

CAMRYN: I knew Bill growing up, and in 2020 when I wanted to get into voiceovers, I reached out to him and that’s how this all started and I guess, the rest is history.

Now you are voicing Santa and Mrs. Claus in Mickey Save Christmas. How did it come about that you both landed parts on the project?

BROCK: I got to play the role of Santa in Mickey and Minnie Wish Upon a Christmas, which was the first time I got to voice Santa for Disney, and now I’m returning to the role this time. Camryn received the audition randomly for Ms. Claus on the day we were getting engaged, and it was perfect timing because I had to get her out of the house so I could set up the proposal here.  So, it really was a Christmas miracle because I was sweating!

CAMRYN:  We were cast separately. The production team had no idea that Brock and I were a couple. When I went in to record, they were like, “Here’s the voice of Santa for you to record to, and I was like, “Yeah, I know… that’s my fiancé!”  They were like, “What??” (Laughs)

Photo: Sarah Irene Decristoforo

Did the engagement go off without a hitch?

BROCK:  Yes, so after the audition process, Camryn returned home. I proposed, and there was a whole Disney/Pixar theme going on in the backyard. It was a really special day. To have her say, “Yes”, and also to have this crazy opportunity for her to audition for the role of Mrs. Claus happening at the same time … and then weeks later finding out she booked the role, it was all amazing.  We were now going to be working on this Christmas special together.  I think anytime you get to voice an iconic character, it’s special.  However, if you’d told me that I would get to return to the role I love, with the person I love playing opposite me … I think I’m done.  I just don’t know how you can ever top it!

Camryn, what did it mean to you to be in this film as Mrs. Claus, because fans saw this post of yours with a photo of you outside the Anaheim Convention Center where Disney’s D23 convention was happening.  It made everyone speculate  just what you were working on, which you shared was a lifelong dream.

CAMRYN:  Yes!  Y&R and CBS is my home, but I’ve always wanted to do something with Disney.  My family raised me on all things Disney and all things Christmas.  They were huge into the holiday, and so this kind of just checks every box.  It’s not only Disney, it’s Christmas, it’s stop-motion animation, and it’s Mrs. Claus.  I think my family was more excited for me to book this then anything I’ve ever done. I think there were tears! So sentimentally, this project really meant a lot to me.

Photo: BrockPowellIG

Camryn, did Brock coach you on doing voiceover work, or give you any tips?

CAMRYN:  I mean, I live with my voiceover coach. (Laughs) It’s amazing!

BROCK:  You know, I do coach for voiceovers and Camryn is my star pupil now.  She’s a talented actress, obviously. The biggest misconception is that, while it starts with the voice, Camryn, as well as most of the amazing voice actors I know, they have access to this childhood imagination which I think makes their performances possible. So, while you’re watching Mickey Saves Christmas, even though we recorded everything separately, what you’re looking for is that energy and every character connecting. You’re inventing the circumstances, you’re inventing your scene partner, where we have to close our eyes and embody a character we may, or may not, have a reference for. I think watching Camryn and hearing Camryn’s work on this, and a couple of other projects she’s worked on, I’m just so impressed at how coming from daytime television where there is a very stringent set routine and at the level that she excels at there, to then come into my world and then just kill it behind the microphone. She was able to let all of that go and have the bravery to try something new. I think a lot of people are going to love what Camryn has done here.  I’m most proud of her to be willing to look silly which is what is required in voiceover.

CAMRYN:  That’s true, and that’s probably the most fun thing about it.

Now, what can you tease us that happens in the story of Mickey Saves Christmas?

CAMRYN: It’s kind of built into the title a little bit, but I think what you’re going to get out of this is a deep sense of community and coming together to fix a problem and being able to lend a helping hand.  I feel, it’s just a really lovely film about chosen family.

BROCK:  It’s about family, it’s about friends, it’s about putting a lot of pressure on the holidays be perfect.  I think everyone involved in this special from the animators to the music team, everything in it helped make this a love letter to the holidays. The film really just talks about that Christmas is who you spend it with, and not necessarily how it turns out. I think it’s a really positive reminder that the most important part about Christmas is being with the ones we love. These are characters that Camryn and I love, not just the ones we voiced. To be with these actors, to be with these characters. it is just is going to be so special with everyone watching on November 27. It’s going to be the first tine for all us watching it together,

Photo: CBS

Now Brock, do you watch Camryn on The Young and the Restless?

BROCK: Yes, and I will say sometimes when Camryn is at work, our puppy does sit and watch mommy on TV, too!

Is Brock, #TeamTeriah on Y&R, as well?

CAMRYN: Yes, Brock is all about #TeamTeriah. It was actually really beautiful kind of getting engaged around the same time, Mariah and Tessa did on the show.

In another post of yours on social media, I saw that you had picked a spot for your wedding to Brock.   

CAMRYN: Yes. We don’t actually have a set date (we have three options), but we did pick a location.  So, we will be figuring that all out very soon.

Check out a clip from ‘Mickey Saves Christmas’ featuring Camryn as Mrs. Clause and Brock as Santa below.  Then let us know, will you be watching the special? What did you think of Camryn getting to work on this project and opposite the love-of-her-life, Brock Powell? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Patrick Duffy and Linda Purl Talk On Their Guest Star Turn on The Bold and the Beautiful, Bobby Ewing and ‘Dallas’, and Finding Love with Each Other

On today’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, arriving on to the scene during a crucial moment for Brooke (Katherine Kelley Lang) is none other than real-live lovebirds, Patrick Duffy and Linda Purl.

Duffy’s appearance marks the first time he had been back on the CBS daytime drama in the role of  Stephen Logan since 2011.  He had left his role on the soap to join the cast of TNT’s Dallas reboot to reprise his signature TV role of Bobby Ewing.

Photo: CBS

Now 11 years later, Patrick returns, but he brings with him, Linda Purl, heralded for so many memorable TV movies of the week earlier in her career.  In story, Stephen comes t0 Los Angeles with his new girlfriend, Lucy (Purl), only to stumble on drama with the Logan sisters, Brooke, Katie (Heather Tom) and Donna (Jennifer Gareis).  The two also appear on next Monday’s November 28th episode.

For Purl, this marks her second foray into the world of the soaps.  Just recently, she appeared on General Hospital as Peyton, who definitely provided angst and drama for Carly (Laura Wright) when Carly was stuck in Jacksonville.  Fans loved Purl’s performance on the ABC daytime drama series. Don’t be too surprised if Linda winds up with a Daytime Emmy nomination next year for her work.

Michael Fairman caught up with Patrick and Linda for a virtual interview now on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel.

In addition to their visit to B&B, Patrick opens up about his disappointment on the cancellation of TNT’s reboot of ‘Dallas’, plus being part of one of the most iconic moments in TV history, when in the closing moments of the original Dallas’ ninth season, Bobby was seen lathering up in the shower, when he had been killed-off on the show a year prior.  It was later revealed that the whole previous season was a dream!

Photo: PDuffy

In addition, Patrick and Linda discuss how their friendship turned into a romantic relationship and partnership some 20 years after they originally met, and how they even have gone into business together with ‘Duffy’s Dough’, (www.DuffysDough.com) just in time for the holidays.

Check out the interview with Patrick and Linda below.
