Kish fans will make sure to note of two interviews on the web right now with One Life to Live’s departing Scott Evans.  First right here at On-Air On-Soaps, Michael Fairman talked with Scott about Fish being revealed as the biological dad of Sierra Rose, and his feelings on Fish’s  entire story arc from the coming out story, to the sex-scene, to the pushback and the prejudice.  This interview was taped a few days prior to Scott shockingly finding out he was released from the show.

Today, We Love Soaps posted a fascinating interview from this weekend’s Gay of our Lives event in New York.  Damon L. Jacobs caught up with Scott for a few minutes to ask how he was handling things post-Kish, and his how he is dealing with the disappointment, and confirming how he found out about the end of his character via the Internet!

OLTL doesn’t deserve such class. Although I’ve been sending in my postcards and emails. I’m sure we will be seeing Scott a lot more in the future. He’s a great actor.

Once Kish is gone it can be the Rex/Gigi hour.

Damon Jacobs is jokingly (not really IMO) offering his therapeutic services to Scott Evans for kish firings? The clear favoritism and kiddy (or kishy) gloves for Scott Evans and Brett Claywell is out of control. Some in the media are feeding into kish actors’s delusions that OLTL’s homophobic and this is a homophobia issue when it’s not. This is not the first firing on Daytime done in a brusque way and it certainly won’t be the last. Majority of actors go thru this. Heck majority of talented actors don’t even get hired! Countless actors are waiting in the wings to… Read more »

And of course Jacobs holds the interview in front of the word Stonewall. That is extremely manipulative.

Evans’s axing is not in any way a parallel to events leading up to the Stonewall riots. For Jacobs to subtlely parallel the 2 is sheer lunacy!

The next interview w/ the other actor in the same clip is not in front of the word Stonewall, so that’s very telling.

“Gay people” aren’t the only ones being affected by this axing. Kish is a rather popular couple on this soap, if you haven’t realized, loved by gays and straights alike. Brett Claywell & Scott Evans are not “screaming to the media” that this was about homophobia, they are simply defending themselves after their names were erroneously dragged through the mud. Someone at OLTL/ABC put them in a position where they had to defend themselves & their professionalism (of which they did, very well actually – they dispelled the rumors against them, which no one really believed anyway, because anyone who’s… Read more »

There’s no pt in debating w/ kish fans who only blame it on these shadowy agents who weild so much power bec of their homophobia that they can axe any gay couple they like. OLTL is last in the ratings and these so called homophobes are trying to get rid of them, yet not going after the more far reaching ABC gay characters on Modern Family, excellently portrayed by Eric Stonestreet, who always steals the show from Jesse Tyler Ferguson. As for the Stonewall reference, of course a psychotherapist would choose to have the interview there for its psychological impact.

Some people closely involved with all this don’t believe the firings had anything to do with “the gayness,” although they do acknowledge that the kish s/l was dropped b/c of focus groups, and ABCD has gone on the record stating kish was “killed” as a result of failing to resonate with “mainstream” audiences, and ABCD said they don’t want to waste their time on non-mainstream viewers, or basically any open-minded people. But there are plenty of mainstream fans who did enjoy these characters and s/l. And, since Evans andClaywell were fired b/c their s/l was dropped for these reasons, it… Read more »

Oh, and in regards to your outrage that the WLS interview took place in front of the Stonewall, you should really relax-it wasn’t some huge conspiracy. Evans, and a host of other actors were all attending a charity event that took place there. WLS covered the event, and conducted every interview in front of the venue there, as inside the tiny bar it was loud, crowded, and too poorly-lit for filming. Hope this clarification can put you at ease.
