Vale: Andrea Evans | TV Tonight

US soap actress Andrea Evans best known for One Life to Live, Passions, and The Bold and the Beautiful has died, aged 66.

She died at home in California, after losing her battle with breast cancer, her representatives said.

“I’ve been working with Andrea for the past seven years. She was such a tremendous talent and an absolute joy to work with,” Evans’ representative Don Carroll confirmed.

Evans also played Tina Lord, once nicknamed “Daytime’s Diva of Dirt” on One Life to Live from 1979-81 and from 1985-90. However, she had to abruptly quit the soap after a stalker accosted her in the lobby of the studio in 1987 and later sent her death threats, some of them written in blood.

The fear “forever changed me. There’s no way it could not,” she once told People.

On The Young and the Restless, she played Patty Williams from 1983-84 and Tawny for an installment in 2010.

Evans returned to the world of daytime as Tawny Moore on The Bold and the Beautiful in 1999-2000, then spent the next eight years as Rebecca Hotchkiss on Passions from 2000 – 2008.

She also featured in 12 episodes of The Bay from 2017-2020.
