Scott Evans (born September 21, 1983)[1] 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.[2] He is the younger brother of actor Chris Evans.[2][3]

Personal life[edit]

Raised in Sudbury, Massachusetts,[1] Evans is the son of Bob Evans, a dentist, and Lisa, a dancer[4] and later artistic director at the Concord Youth Theater,[5] He has two sisters, Carly and Shanna,[4] and an older brother, Chris, who is also an actor. He studied theatre at New York University.[2][3] Evans is openly gay.[6]

Career[edit]

Evans began playing the recurring role of police officer Oliver Fish on One Life to Live on January 15, 2008.[7] 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."[2] 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.[2] In July 2009, his character Oliver Fish became involved in a romantic relationship with another man named Kyle Lewis (played by Brett Claywell).[8] 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.[8] Evans was later outed as gay by his brother Chris.[9][10]

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.
