Last night, One Life to Live took home the prize for Outstanding Daily Drama Series as recognized by GLAAD. Scott Evans (Oliver), who was a pivotal part of the victory, attended the ceremonies with Brett Claywell (Kyle) and One Life’s head writer, Ron Carlivati.  Evans was asked on the red carpet what was next for his career, and his feelings on the news handed down this week that the gay-storyline involving his character is being written out of the series in April.  

Since the video is very hard to hear, On-Air On-Soaps transcribed Evan’s comments.  “I think we told a fantastic story. Of course we feel like there’s always more places it could go. We told an incredible story. It got a lot of great reactions, maybe one or two not so great ones from people who are closed-minded. Now we’re done and moving on and I’m excited to see what’s next in store for me.”

Scott Evans is claiming that only closeminded (therefore homophobic) people didn’t like Kish. He’s acting as closeminded as the homophobes he’s critiquing. Evans should realize that not everyone who doesn’t like Kish is automatically closeminded (which is his word for homophobic).

I’m a queer male fan of soaps since my childhood, I thought Evans delivered unconvincing, awful portrayals on a consistent basis. I thought Nuke and Otalia had good moments, I really liked Bianca’s coming out on AMC since the writing was great and Reigel brought a sensitivity to the role. Reigel was great with Lucci, and she would have won an Emmy earlier had it not been for B&B’s Jennifer Finnigan.

Scott Evans needs to realize that some people who were open to the storyline of Kish got turned off by the political overtones, Carlivati’s writing and Evans’s goofy, distracting acting. Also OLTL should not have won for glaad, but GL should have won bec of Chappell’s acting in Otalia. GL had its same sex couple til it got canceled, but OLTL wrote out Kish. Chappell even created Venice for her Otalia fanbase. But I’m guessing glaad gave OLTL the award bec it would create a story in the media that would generate a lot of buzz. Here’s glaad awarding a show that just axed its same sex couple. Like glaad would award GL when Ellen Wheeler, GL’s much maligned EP, is Mormon. And of course Ron Carlivati being the only openly gay Headwriter on Daytime was a factor in glaad awarding OLTL.

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”
