About Andrea Evans
Andrea Evans Biography
Andrea Evans was born June 18, 1957 in Aurora, Illinois and
is an American Emmy-nominated actress. Evans is most recognized for her
portrayal of Tina Lord on the ABC soap opera One Life to Live, a role she
played from 1978 to 1981 and 1985 to 1990, returning from June 11, 2008 to
November 25, 2008. and finally on September 27, 2011 to the present.
She has also appeared on the soap operas The Young and the
Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful, and Passions.
As a child, Evans appeared in beauty pageants, and later regional theater and
commercials. She graduated early from high school and attended the University
of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. While there Evans was cast as an extra in the
1978 Brian De Palma film The Fury, and the same year in the miniseries The
Awakening Land. Casting director Mary Jo Slater soon got Evans the role of Tina
on One Life to Live, where she stayed until 1981. Evans then went on to portray
Patty Williams, Paul Williams little sister and Jack Abbotts wife, on The
Young and the Restless from 1983 to 1984.
Evans returned to One Life to Live in 1985, in a storyline
credited with putting the series back on course and ultimately
bringing Tina to her height of popularity. She was nominated for a Daytime Emmy
Award in 1988 for Outstanding Ingenue for One Life to Live, and has appeared on
the cover of Soap Opera Digest five times.
Evans left One Life to Live abruptly in January 1990. and
dropped out of public view for nearly a decade. Years later she revealed that
she had left to escape a persistent stalker who had gone as far as breaking
into the ABC studios in New York City, intent on killing her. At the time, the
stalker incident had been played down heavily in the press. On One Life to
Live, the character of Tina returned after a short hiatus, with former Playboy
Playmate Karen Witter in the role.
Evans made two feature films during the 1990s, performing a
small part in A Low Down Dirty Shame in 1994 and a major role in Ice Cream Man
in 1995. She returned to television in 1999, appearing as Amber Moores
trashy mother Tawny on The Bold and the Beautiful until 2000. That
year she stepped into the role of Rebecca Hotchkiss Crane on the NBC soap opera
Passions (replacing Maureen McCormick, whose ten-episode stint had ended),
where she would stay until the series final episode. Evans longtime recurring
status on Passions and the subsequent cancellation of the series for years
fueled rumors of her return to the One Life to Live role of Tina, but it was
announced in July 2007 that she would stay with Passions for its continued run
on DirecTV. The series finished taping in March 2008, though new episodes were
broadcast on DirecTV through August 2008.
In the June 26, 2007 issue of Soap Opera Digest, Evans was
asked what her favorite role was besides her current one on Passions; she answered
Thats an easy one ... Tina Lord Roberts on One Life to Live because in
every actors life, you hope for a role that becomes bigger than yourself and for
me, Tina was that role.
ABC.com announced in April 2008 that Evans would soon return
as Tina; she reappeared onscreen on June 11, 2008. Executive Producer Frank
Valentini noted, Even though Andrea has not appeared on OLTL since 1990,
she has remained among the most requested characters to return to the show ...
I welcome her home to OLTL and to the role where she made an indelible mark on
our audience. Evans imminent departure from the series was announced on
November 5, 2008. Both Evans and ABC noted that the actress return was always
set to be short-term, as her life, family and home are in
California while One Life to Live tapes in New York City. Valentini continued
in a statement, 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.. Evans last
appearance was on November 25, 2008.
On April 6, 2010, TVGuide.com announced that Evans would be
returning to The Young and the Restless, not as Patty Williams, but as Evans
trashy The Bold and the Beautiful character Tawny. The one-episode
stint aired on May 12, 2010. On November 8 of the same year, it was
announced that Evans would be crossing back over to The Bold and the
Beautiful with the character of Tawny. This time, Tawny will face off with her
daughter Amber Moore once again for the first time in a decade.
While still appearing in recurring capacity on The Bold and
the Beautiful, Evans reprised the role of Tina on OLTL on September 27, 2011.
Evans couldnt pass up the opportunity to play Tina one last time before the
show leaves ABC. Her long time on-screen love interest, John Loprieno also
reprised the role of Cord. It is unknown how long Evans run will last, but
conceivably until the end of the shows run on ABC.
