One Life to Live's Scott Evans Does Instinct
One Life to Live's Scott Evans, who plays hunky gay cop Oliver Fish on One Life to Live, appears on the cover of the Dec/Jan issue of Instinct magazine.
"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."
