Tonight, we have posted Brett Claywell and Michael Fairman’s guest appearance on last week’s Frank DeCaro Show on Sirius Satellite Radio. For those who did not get a chance to hear the live in-studio segment, you can listen to it in it’s entirety by clicking here to our media gallery. On-air, Brett talks about his thoughts on the ending of his wildly popular storyline, and takes some calls from his many fans who were concerned for one half of their favorite soap couple, Kish.
Also out tonight, EW.com’s Lynette Rice profiles Brett in a new Q&A about how his experiences in the same-sex storyline, and if he received any pushback from the network, and how he wrapped up playing Kyle Lewis. Then Rice posed the question, if the critically praised same-sex love scene between Kyle and Fish could have been the contributing factor to the couple’s demise. Brett’s response is below.
Claywell on if sex scene was part of the reason Kish was abruptly ended; “I don’t know if we’d want to be there if we hadn’t done the sex scene. A year ago, I wouldn’t be saying this. I think the storyline would have been incomplete without the sex scene. Daytime, for 42 years or however long it’s been on television — that is what daytime does. They tell love stories over and over and over to people across the country. Year in and year out, day in and day out, they’re telling stories of love and they’re telling true stories of relationships. We would not have been truthful if we had held back that scene. I will never, ever regret [it]. I’m very proud and I stand by all the work we did.”
