CONFIRMED: Scott Clifton OUT at One Life to Live!





Sorry Schuyler fans, I am hearing Scott Clifton has taped his last episode of One Life to Live and is telling pals he's been let go from the sudser! Just last month the talented actor, who hunked up considerably between playing Dillon Quartermaine on General Hospital and joining OLTL as Sky, was tweeting his excitement over landing Susan Lucci's dressing room, following OLTL's move to the old AMC studios. Now we hear his character will more than likely be phased out following the climax of the Big Gay Custody Battle For Sierra Mist Rose. Here's hoping Clifton can return to his former Port Charles stomping grounds, since GH is in the process of rebuilding Generation Next of the Quartermaines!

UPDATE: Scott Clifton has confirmed his exit from One Life to Live on Twitter, with the following tweets.

Hey guys, just want to let you know the rumors are true: I killed JFK. (Oh, wait, the OTHER rumor? Yeah that's true too. OLTL let me go.)

Had a blast working on the show, with a KILLER conclusion. I really hope you guys keep watching 'cause I did some work I'm really proud of.

I'd rather see John-Paul Lavoisier go.

Dang I actually liked Skye after this year I'm kinda done with Rex/Gigi and I thought Skyler/Gigi were good together. Maybe he'll leave town with Rachel and then head to Port Charles, the Quartermaines need him badly, or over to Days.

Personally I think Scott has grown so much on OLTL. Feel free to disagree. I only hope that Frons can take his head out of wherever it is these days and see that the rebuilding of the Q's needs a face the fans recognize. Dillon needs to return to Port Charles. I'll be sad to see him leave Llanview but I will welcome him with open arms back on GH. If not, I'm sure Jamey can think of another soap that will gladly take him.

Bummer...but I agree with others.  Put him back on GH.

 Sad for Scott, hopefully GH takes him back. But THANK GOD they ended up giving Brett Claywell the role of Kyle instead of keeping him as Sky, that could have been him instead.

Aawwww.............poor thing!!!

I was kinda' misled by the clues, because I don't necessarily see Scott as "hot" or "sexy" (cute, but not SEXY!!!) and I don't think he has really "improved" on OLTL. I never saw much NEED for improvement. I always thought he was great on GH.

Why would they get rid of him and keep Farah Fath??? Since when did she become the "younger Robin Strasser" of OLTL?? She is TOTALLY replaceable and forgettable!!!! I actually like John Paul Lavoisier, so I am kinda' glad he is staying!!! He may not be much of a dramatic actor, but he is GREAT at comedy!!!!!

Oh and on a side note:

OLTL can't think of ANYTHING for him to do after this storyline?  If all these daytime shows can't get creative enough to WRITE AND PRODUCE and always fall back on  "the storyline came to a climax" BS, then I really don't feel that bad that they are all in trouble.  C'mon peeps get creative, if you are out of ideas, us fans can help you out!!!

This really sucks. I hope he goes back to GH. It should have been JPL...

I'm sorry to hear this. I don't watch OLTL regularly, but Scott Clifton is a great actor and one of the smartest people in the business. His Youtube channel "Theoretical Bullshit" is the shit!

Drats! He's one of my favorites on OLTL. Schuyler's the one who's coming off sympathetic in this storyline, because of Scott Clifton's wonderful acting job, whereas Gigi and (especially) Rex are coming off as smug and spiteful...

I don't want him back on GH. 

I do agree that I would rather see JPL get the bot over Scott but at the same time I'm not particularly fond of Schuyler so I won't miss him.

This sucks...the writers are, clearly, at a loss for what to do with him now that they don't have a triangle to portray. I've been a fan of Carlivati's for a long time but the first sign of a show that's going downhill creatively is when it gets rid of its talented actors. Ask Chuck Pratt.

I wouldn't mind him back on GH...I'd like to see  them rebuild the Qs and as a possible obstacle for Lante. Oh, and also: if they're SORASing Abby Newman with Marcy Rylan, they're going to need a new Noah.

This is another head-scratcher like DD's, because both Rachel and Sky seem to be being positioned for post-Sierra Rose drama, Sky with a breakdown and Rachel perhaps with a "saving Sky" thing.  Now they're both gone, though.  Has Fronsie's dread hand struck again (SC's showing up his boy JPL something fierce), or has FV gone insane?  I demand you get to the bottom of this, Jamey!!!!1!!!

I honestly think this was a reworking after Amanda Setton left the show... Something tells me her leaving affected the shows re-writing a great deal. It affected this specific storyline a great deal as well. I have a feelingClifton is a casulty because of it.. Daphne Dupalix was already cut prior to her resignation.

With Daphne and Amandas characters out of the picture
and
Farahs Character doubtful to be with anyone other than rex

With that being considered Schuyler has now has no real chance of being paired with anyone so they just let Scott Clifton go...

SORRY SC FANS

IM ONE OF THEM..

BUT I WANT HIM BACK AS DILLON ANYWAY...

THE FRICTION HE COULD CAUSE FOR LULU / DANTE

I don't really know what to feel about this lol.

Part of me is happy, I never really connected with Sky, but at the same time i alwaysed enjoyed Scott's portrayal....

I hope that this isn't the last we will see of SC, hopefully he will go back to GH, or join another soap soon.

What about rumors that Sky is Mitch Laurence's son?  Wouldn't that offer reams of story, since Rex hates his father (and Sky)?  He and Sky could bond over their psycho dad.

All the progress OLTL has made is being undone. I no longer consider it Must See...makes me think the show is really on its way out soon.

I'm going to miss Schuyler and I like SC.....I guess this means OLTL is trimming their budget in order to put Fish on contract.

WOOO!

Time for Dillon to come home and bring my love Georgie back. I dont care how it happens, just make it happen.

Though, I may not agree with him on his youtube channel, I love him as an actor and hope he comes back to GH with Georgie.

lets hope it comes through!

This sucks!!  I really enjoyed Schuyler.  Scott Clifton is a great ACTOR.  Did I say ACTOR?  Why yes, I did!

What's is wrong with these fools?

I guess if your not a pet of Frank and Ron your firing is "story dictated". This sucks b/c Scott has been a welcome edition to the canvas. Even though I bashed them just now I see why this happened since the cast is already a large ensemble and I guess they need to start saving some cash money.

First Daphne and now this.

OLTL must have paid that old/new Kelly lots of money.

Yet Gigi, Rex and freakin GREG is still on?

Gee.. if he's as great as has been implied, maybe he should return to California and become the recast Noah Newman on Y&R? (Which would bring the character in line with his newly-SORASed cousin, Marcy Rylan-as-Abby Carlton.)
