Word to the wise for today – never buy a new laptop AND pay your car tax in the same credit card billing period; it does not end well! Opened mine last night and nearly had heart failure – but I suppose it could have been worse, am thinking of changing the car so I only taxed it for 3 months as opposed to the year….
Just saw this on welovesoaps.net – Out magazine spoke to Scott & Brett at the GLAAD Awards:
Out: What are your thoughts on One Life to Live ending your storyline?
Brett Claywell: It was a journey we went on together this whole year, and we had no idea it was going to be received the way it was. I couldn’t have been more privileged to work with a better actor to figuratively and literally hold my hand through the whole process. There’s definitely going to be some sadness, but we really are proud of what we did. We’ve been boyfriends on screen, and now we get to just be brothers. If nothing else we told a great story and developed a new friendship.
Out: What was it like doing the groundbreaking sex scene?
Scott Evans: We didn’t know when we were shooting it that it was the very first one. Then afterward we heard all about the breaking of new ground, and we thought it was pretty cool.
Out: Why do you think presenting a storyline like this one is so important on daytime TV?
Scott Evans: You’re reaching an audience that you normally wouldn’t reach. These are people who may not be watching primetime TV or might not be so in to what is going on in modern times.
Brett Claywell: We’re glad to celebrate the telling of a truthful love story in every day households in the Midwest and the south, and that’s important.
Classy guys – unlike ABC, who seem to be blaming the actors for the storyline ending (if you want to know what I mean, read Nelson Branco’s latest Soapgeist column at tvguide.ca/soaps – I’m refusing to link to the piece itself, because I loathe the way that ABC are spinning this, and that people appear to be buying into it).
