OLTL's Tuc Watkins to Michael Fairman: "It's Six Years Later!"

Publish date:

On-Air On-Soaps sleuth Michael Fairman sat down with and got a lil' dirt from One Life to Live scene stealer Tuc Watkins (David) on the revelation that his character is the long lost son of Texas bad boy millionaire Asa Buchanan (Phil Carey):



Will David finally find out this time out, that he is really Asa Buchanan’s son?


You know, they have been teasing this story for eternity. Talk about dragging out a story! Even by soap terms, it’s taking a long time. I remember when the previous head writer was there and I went back under contract for three years starting in 2003. They told me, “We are going to reveal you are Asa Buchanan’s son.” I thought,” That’s cool, because he is the patriarch of the show, and that means I will be working a lot!” Well, I tell you now, it is going to be revealed, but it is six years later! This is 2009!

Fairman also dishes about the side-splitting return of David "Vickeroshi" Vickers, and his first time working at OLTL. To read up more of the interview visit Fairman's website.
