Today, both Brett Claywell and Scott Evans (Kyle and Fish, One Life to Live) decided to  respond differently to the rumors that it was one actor’s partying and the other’s busy schedule that led to them being let go, Claywell told Soap Opera Digest, “It’s so false it’s slander. Scott and I were nothing but professional and completely 100 percent dedicated to our work.”

Evans tweeted his disdain for the situation, “Such a bummer what all of this is turning into. I will continue to respect the decision but will remain unhappy with the tactics.”

The saga continues!

Evans’s tweet’s really unclassy since he’s trashing his former employer by passive aggressively commenting on this so called “tactic”. Evans uttered that the Daytime audience may not watch primetime tv? What the hell? And he even uttered that the Daytime audience may not know what’s happening in modern times. Huh? That’s how he regards the daytime audience, which is comprised of his Kish fans. And these same people will be rallying for him and for Kish. Tsk.

Evan’s former employer deserves to be trashed. OLTL is the only soap that I am still watching, but I won’t be watching it anymore after Kish is gone. Thirs was the only great story left on OLTL. The other stories are either just bearable or totally ridiculous (Allison and Mitch). Evan’s employers should be ashamed of themselves for keeping such garbage on the show and getting rid of the best story they had. Scott and Brett were the couple with the most chemistry on the show (besides Bo and Nora).

Brett and Scott are a class act and have every right to defend themselves against false allegations. of misconduct….one only needs to watch their performances to see how committed they were to telling the kyle and Oliver story and they should be very proud of the excellent job they did…..

The Kyle and Fish story is my favourite on OLTL by far. Brett and Scott bring so much sincerity to the story, it is so wonderful to watch them. I started watching OLTL when my daughters were little (back when Todd raped Marty). I think this has been my favourite story and they are definately my favourite characters. I find so many of the stories completely ridiculous(ex. Jessica’s loss of memory, everything about Mitch Lawrence and Allison Perkins, fed up with Stacy,Schyler and Rex) that I tape the show and fastforward to the parts I think are worth watching (ex.… Read more »

General Hospital

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
