Scott Evans (born September 21, 1983) is an American actor, best known for his role as the police officer Oliver Fish on the ABC daytime soap opera One Life to Live. He is the younger brother of actor Chris Evans.
Raised in Sudbury, Massachusetts, Evans is the son of Bob Evans, a dentist, and Lisa, a dancer and later artistic director at the Concord Youth Theater, He has two sisters, Carly and Shanna, and an older brother, Chris, who is also an actor. He studied theatre at New York University. Evans is openly gay.
Evans began playing the recurring role of police officer Oliver Fish on One Life to Live on January 15, 2008. He subsequently appeared briefly on Guiding Light as Trey in 2008, and guest-starred as Woody Sage in the June 22, 2008 Law and Order: Criminal Intent episode "Betrayed" as well as the role of Ben in the October 21, 2008 Fringe episode "The Cure." Evans was also seen as Chad the Mail Clerk in the 2009 film Confessions of a Shopaholic.
Initially brought in to One Life to Live for five episodes, Evans returned several times. In July 2009, his character Oliver Fish became involved in a romantic relationship with another man named Kyle Lewis (played by Brett Claywell). The storyline came to wider attention when Patricia Mauceri, an actress who had played a recurring role on the One Life to Live since 1995, was replaced after reportedly voicing personal religious objections to her character's involvement in his storyline. Evans was later outed as gay by his brother Chris.
The Fish storyline on One Life to Live was dropped and both Scott and Brett were let go in 2010. Scott also had a guest role on the AMC series Rubicon as an American involved in a serious terrorist attack with al-Qaeda.
