One Life to Live's Scott Evans may be the little brother of the Human Torch himself, Chris Evans, but he's also breaking ground as an out actor in his own regard. In the coming months, his character, police officer Oliver Fish, will join the growing ranks of daytime characters with gay storylines of their own. This week, the Advocate's Michael Fairman caught up with Evans to get all the details.

About his own coming out process, Evans says "I wanted
to put myself first before my career. I did not want
to go through life having to deal with extra issues when I
am dealing with trying to get a job. So I went, 'OK,
this is me. Either you like or you don’t.
Hopefully you can accept it, and if you can’t,
bummer. If you can hire me, great.' " Read the full interview on Advocate.com.
