INTERVIEW: OLTL's Scott Evans (Fish)
On being nervous for the first Kish love scenes: "Nervous about shooting it? Abso-freaking-lutely. The days leading up to it I was absolutely terrified. Jill Mitwell who directed those scenes was absolutely wonderful. Another one of our directors, Danielle Feraldo sat me and Brett down the day before and gave us this really, really, really incredible speech. She used an analogy with skydiving, how the experience will be much more enjoyable if you jump without fear."

  1. On the AMC tribute for James Mitchell, I was pleased at first when they said it wouldn't be till spring, thinking they are taking their time with compiling 30 years of substantial flashbacks (hopefully lots with Nina, Daisy, and bantering with Myra). But THEN I was disheartened to learn the reason was they are waiting for the new writers to come on board?!?! Ok, let me get this straight... instead of having Lorraine Broderick or even Agnes Nixon pen these episodes dealing with Palmer's death, they are going to wait for writers who know very little about Palmer and his impact on the show. ((scratching head))
