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.”
