Many of you have already heard reports from around the Internet that Kyle and Oliver (aka Fish) -- the romantic duo played by Brett Claywell and Scott Evans on One Life to Live -- will be exiting the show. We can confirm that this is true. ABC recognizes the special place this coupling holds in many fans hearts, so they've issued the following statement:
"The groundbreaking Kyle/Fish relationship on One Life to Live was embraced by fans both as a great story and a fair and honest reflection of the LGBT community. We're glad their story resonated with the audience, and understand the fans' disappointment now that it has concluded. The show has a history of bringing LGBT stories to the screen -- earning two GLAAD awards in the process -- as well as returning popular characters when they serve the ongoing story. These great characters remain in Llanview, and while there are no immediate plans to advance their story, the door is always open for their return."
The weeks to come -- building up to the conclusion of their story -- are going to be filled with some explosive "Kish" (Kyle and Fish) craziness (in a good way) that puts the couple right at the forefront.
As OLTL has recently shown (paging Kelly Cramer!), never say never to a return ...
