SPOILER ALERT: Blair Cramer's (Kassie DePaiva) latest lover-turned-moustache twirling villain, Eli (Matt Walton) bites it next week on One Life to Live when Cole (Brandon Buddy) pops him like a zit, and his portrayer tells Soap Opera Digest he knew the writing was on the wall.
"Not knowing where it was going was a little hard," he tells Digest. "But I knew it couldn't go on forever and there was no redeeming him after a certain point, so I was just waiting for that Joey-Tribbiani-falls-down-the-elevator script to come my way, and it did the Friday before my last week, so I was just like, 'Okay, I guess that's it!"
Sigh. I loved Walton as Blair's sexy lover, who broke her back all over one of Madam Renee Buchanan's hotel suites, but the moment he turned kooky villain, I raced for my fast forward button. So glad this story is over! Check out more of Walton's exit interview, where he dishes his new gig on Comedy Central's The Onion Sports Network, in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest, on newstands now.
