Scott Evans joined the cast of "One Life to Live" in late 2007 in the recurring role of sweet and sorta geeky police officer Oliver Fish, but over the last few months has seen himself placed on the front burner in a much-anticipated -- and buzzed about -- upcoming romance with the character of Kyle (Brett Claywell). Currently, Fish is totally in denial that he's gay, and to prove it is dating his roommate Layla Williamson. On Thursday, August 6th's "OLTL," Kyle and Fish (dubbed "Kish" by many) shared a long-awaited kiss. We talked with Scott Evans to get his thoughts on the kiss, Fish, and all things "OLTL."
How does it feel to be part of a story that's gotten so much attention from a lot of different outlets?
It feels incredible! It's something I certainly didn't see coming at all. I joined the cast in a smaller role and it's just been getting more airtime. I had no idea where my character was going -- and then when it happened, it was awesome. To be part of a story like this [Fish and Kyle's romance; Fish's coming out] is incredible.
So what's up with Fish? What's going through his head? He seems to be very blatantly denying that he's gay.
Right now, [he's in] an insane internal struggle -- which a lot of people go through, depending on where they come from and their backgrounds. He was raised in a really conservative background. So there's this huge struggle trying to figure out what to do -- if anything.
