Andrea Evans Dies
The two-time Daytime Emmy nominated actor who rose to fame in the 1970s and ’80s as the troublemaking teen Tina Lord on the ABC soap One Life To Live, died Sunday of cancer.
She was 66.
Casting director Don Carroll announced her death.
“I’ve been working with Andrea for the past seven years. She was such a tremendous talent and an absolute joy to work with,” her manager, Nick Leicht, told The Post.
Born in Aurora, Ill., Evans appeared in beauty pageants and regional theater as a kid. She got her official start in show business as an extra in Brian De Palma‘s 1978 thriller The Fury.
Starting in 1981, the two-time Daytime Emmy-nominated actress played Patti Weaver on CBS’ “The Young and the Restless,” Tawny Moore on “The Bold and the Beautiful,” and Rebecca Hotchkiss on NBC’s “Passions.”
She was also an extra in the NBC miniseries The Awakening that same year.
She is most famous for playing Tina Lord on “One Life to Live,” where she started on that series in the late ’70s, and had a memorable run through the ’80s, and during the early 2010s with recurring appearances.
Most recently, Evans portrayed Patty Walker in 12 episodes of Amazon Prime’s drama series “The Bay” from 2017 to 2020.
