OLTL's Scott Evans Instinct Magazine's coverman!

evansinstinct.jpgScott Evans (Fish, OLTL) is Instinct Magazine’s coverman for the December 2009/January 2010 issue.  Here is some of what is inside the issue as it pertains to Fish’s coming out story.

“Coming-out stories have been done and done again in the nearly two decades since, Fish’s modern, adult variation on the theme has returned delight to the afternoon, garnering both attention and acclaim.”

The feature goes on to discuss Scott’s relationship with his real-life family and their acceptance of his coming out.

“Brother of movie star Chris Evans (Fantastic Four’s flaming hetero), the 26-year-old Scott experienced what can sadly be considered a rarity: coming out to an instantly supportive family. The actor describes his real-life mother—who also portrays Fish’s mother on the show—as a “liberal, awesome, crazy” woman, a woman who responded to her son’s coming out with, “‘Oh, yeah. I knew when I gave birth to you.’” Unfortunately, the Fish family was poised to react in a starkly different way to the experience, as thoughtfully penned by OLTL head writer Ron Carlivati and team. The Evanses, mother and son, would themselves depict the all-too-common story of intolerance and disapproval unleashed in the aftermath of a son’s coming-out moment. Filmed on set this past summer, Officer Fish’s mom immediately cut ties with him after learning of his sexuality—a stretch even for the talent of Lisa Evans. “It was heartbreaking for her. Once the scene ended, she came to me crying and would hug me, saying, ‘I love you,’” remembers Scott.”

Finally, the article talks about how Evan’s real life and on-screen coming out story have meant so much to the actor and gay people around the globe.  Evans said, “I’ve gotten letters from people saying that my story line has helped them, that they are in the closet and don’t know what to do. It’s extremely sad,” he laments. “The writers have been doing such a fantastic job with making it so real that a lot of people can relate to it.”

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”
