After all the rumors and speculation, it is confirmed that Andrea Evans will be leaving “OLTL” after only six months. Her last air date will be November 25th, Thaksgiving Day as Tina Lord Roberts.
Frank Valentini, the executive producer of “OLTL” made this official statement: “ABC and One Life to Live were thrilled to have Andrea Evans reprise the role of Tina Lord after 18 years. Her return was made possible with the understanding that it would be short-term as Ms. Evans’ life, family and home are on the West Coast. “OLTL” did not ask that she move across the country in order for her to return to the show. The character of Tina is a very important part of the OLTL canvas. If there is an opportunity to have her — Tina and Andrea — return at a future date, the show would be happy to explore it.”
Andrea summed up her experience and leaves the door open as well, “I had a fabolous time bringing Tina back to
the show, and certainly hope that the chance to take on the roll will manifest itself again.”
