Those of you who missed and loved Oliver Fish on One Life to Live, and the work of Scott Evans, were concerned over recent developments where Evans last year was arrested for possession of a controlled substance after he tried to buy some off an undercover cop in Los Angeles!

However there is good news today from TMZ.com that the case against Evans has been dropped mainly because of Evans good behavior and attending 60 Narcotics Anonymous meetings.  According to the report, “Evans had struck a plea deal with prosecutors back in January in which he agreed to plead guilty — and in exchange he would have to complete 60 NA meetings.  Well, Evans came through — and earlier this week he proved he completed his obligation in just 6 short months. In exchange, the judge dismissed the case. “

So what do you think of the news on Evans’ case being dropped?  Would you love to see Scott get an opportunity to return to the new One Life to Live?

I wish him well but he is a grown man who knew what he was doing and shouldve known better…i do not concern myself with foolish people who get involved with drugs, especially when they know its wrong, seen what happens to others including possible death and yet think nothing bad will happen to them so they do it anyway! The drugs out there isnt the problem…its the idiots who take them. He got off too easy…these people will most often make future attempts. Its happen in my family and ended tragically. I may sound harsh but ive experienced it…most of these people will never learn no matter how hard you teach them drugs are wrong. Some might…but still not enough!

You sound like a stuck up prude…..Just because someone does something that you don’t agree with doesn’t make them less of a person…..It’s wrong to judge other people, but you have no problem with that…Sorry you had such a screwed up life because of drugs, but that doesn’t mean everyone who uses drugs is bad…

I didnt take drugs…maybe you need glasses…i said a family member did…how many times do we read someone gets arrested or dies from drugs…100s of times…the message is clearly out there that drugs are wrong and dangerous…my relative died from drugs…yet others hear and read this everyday and they still do it anyway which makes them an idiot…i never used illegal drugs nor have broken the law…and you call be a prude…why because im not foolish to break the law or do drugs(i love my life and dont intend to waste it)…you call me a prude because im a law abiding citizen who lives a clean drug free life? Why you are the biggest idiot around. P.S i didnt say he was a bad person..i might even like him if i met him…i said he’s an idiot for being a grown man who should know better and YOU should too.

He didn’t get off easy, he got the standard ‘punishment’ for a first time offender. Counseling/therapy, community service, good behavior for a length of time = charges dropped.

Just because something happened in your family – does not mean it will happen that way for everyone.

Sure what happened to my family wont happen to everyone but is taking drugs worth that risk when there is still a chance it could?

I never loved nor missed him nor that douche Brett Claywell (who dissed daytime when he didn’t get an Emmy nomination in 2009).

Both are losers in my opinion.

ALL THE BEST TO HIM .HOPE HE CAN DO IT. I DON’T WANT TO SEE WHAT HAPPENED TO CORY ,HAPPEN TO HIM.AND I’D LOVE TO SEE HIM BACK ON OLTL.

So we are praising a guy who bought drugs off a undercover cop? Sorry he should have done time like everyone else .

And what would he likely be doing right now if he hadn’t gotten busted??…..Exactly.

I loved the Kish story, but I’m not feeling a whole lotta love for Scott – I do wish him well though.

Like I said on another comment: He didn’t get off easy, he got the standard ‘punishment’ for a first time offender. Counseling/therapy, community service, good behavior for a length of time = charges dropped. Like most everyone else.

Good I’d like to see him put the drugs behind him and get back to acting. Then he can again be a positive gay role-model.

Loved him on OLTL – hope he stays away from the drugs. Good Luck to him.

I think he should be given a chance and be hired back. I think he made a mistake that he didn’t think through and took his punishment like a man. He could have plead mot guilty, done time in jail, and came out worse. Be strong Scott. Go down the right road, too many have died way too young because they were too weak. Wish you the best.

I am thrilled for him and very proud, I know it wasn’t easy! We have all made mistakes, it is what we learn from them and how we move forward that builds charector!

Good to hear. Hopefully he learned his lesson. And hey, if Robert Downey Jr. can go from multiple arrests and stints in rehabs to being one of Hollywod’s top paid actors, Scott definitely deserves a second chance.

And I’d love to see Kish again someday!

Scott played one of the most beloved characters on OLTL. It was a sad day for fans when he and his partner comprising “KISH” were let go. I personally would be very happy to see him on nuOLTL. (Perhaps his brother Chris from the Fantastic 4, Captain America, and the Avengers could put in a good word for him!) I wish him the very best.

Glad to hear he was able to comply with the court’s orders. Now he can get on with his life. Would LOVE to see KISH stop by Llanview for a visit, or longer! 🙂

I enjoyed the Kish storyline, but there are many actors/characters I’d prefer to have back before revisiting this one. It played out and we had closure. I’d rather see John McBain, Jessica Buchanan, Roxy Balsom, Kelly Cramer, Tina Lord, Rex (no Gigi) and on and on and on…

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
