Former One Life to Live star Nicholas Rodgriguez, who worked closely with Brett Claywell (Kyle) and Scott Evans (Fish) when his character, gay activist Nick Chavez, was put in a love triangle with the pairing on the sudser last fall, has spoken out on the record to Daytime Confidential.com about what it was like to be a part of that groundbreaking storyline, as well as his experience working with the two actors on the set of the ABC soap opera.
"I am so proud of them both for how they are handling this situation," says Rodriguez, who is currently in Washington D.C. performing in the musicial Light in the Piazza. "I am truly proud of all our work together and the honesty and sincerity that came with these relationships. Not only was there an emphasis on professionalism and good acting, but there was always an obligation to present these gay men as honest, true, fully fleshed out human beings. I absolutely treasure my part in the creative process with Brett Claywell and Scott Evans. I have no doubt they will go on to do many more incredible things."
There really ought to be a law against getting rid of a character like this one. Don't be surprised when you hear that one soap opera has thrown out one of its most popular actresses. I guess fans won't have to worry about who __________ should be with anymore. Want more clues? Follow me on Twitter.
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
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.
Pack your bags. This two-soaper who seems SO excited about her job and front burner storyline has likely already taped his last episode on one sudser and doesn't know it. Don't feel too bad for the talented, Twitter-happy thesp, who has grown leaps and bounds (and quite a bit hotter!) since her last television gig. I doubt his career will be ending up back in any basements anytime soon... Want more clues? Follow me on Twitter! (By the by, like how I switch up his and her to keep ya guessing? :p
I imagine fans of this former ABC Daytime superstar will be quite happy to learn he or she just joined a CBS sudser in quite the bitchin' role! I can't reveal who the wildly popular thespian is yet, or who he or she will be portraying (it's a recast), but let's just say this will go down as one of the biggest casting coups of the new millenium!
Ruh roh. Looks like more trouble for Nicole Walker Roberts Kiriakis DiMera (Arianne Zucker) once she gets out of the clink. Sources say John Callahan is back on set at Days of Our Lives this week reprising the role of Dr. Baker, the sinister physician who helped Nikki switch Sami (Alison Sweeney) and Mia's (Taylor Sprietler) babies. Look for this stint to be a bit lengthier, according to one mole.
