Andrea Evans, a star of The Young and the Restless, passed away at the age of 66. Nick Leicht, the actor’s current manager, confirmed the information.
“I’ve spent the last seven years working with Andrea. She was an incredible joy to work with and such a fantastic talent,” Leicht said in a statement to People.
On Sunday, July 9, Evans reportedly passed away from breast cancer at her Pasadena, California, home.
She was well-known for playing Patty Williams on The Young and the Restless on CBS, Tina Lord on One Life to Live on ABC, and Rebecca Hotchkiss on Passions on NBC/DirecTV. Evans’ performance in One Life to Live earned her a nomination in 1988 for the Outstanding Ingenue Daytime Emma Award.

But in the 1990s, the actor abruptly left the program and disappeared from view. Her choice had, it was later discovered, been influenced by her encounter with a stalker.
In the wake of her passing, her 1998 husband Stephen Rodriguez released a statement.
He remarked, “Andrea was a fantastic person, loved by those who knew her.
“Throughout her fearless fight against this relentless disease, her unwavering strength, positivity, and indomitable spirit inspired us at every turn,” the statement reads.
She handled the difficulties with grace, fortitude, and a persistent love of life. I dated Andrea for more than 30 years. She was a wonderful mother and wife. She was my KING. Andrea passed away from cancer, but her spirit survived. She impacted each of us, and her soul now lives on in each of us, he continued.
Her co-stars have also paid respect to her on social media by the late actor.
Her death was described as “heartbreaking news” by Melissa Archer and Kassie DePaiva, co-stars of Evans’ One Life To Live.
On Facebook, Archer praised Andrea as “a kind woman, fun to work with, and such a pro.” “I am so grateful that I got to work with her on OLTL and The Bay the Series,” she said.
Kylie, Evans’ daughter, and her husband Evans are still alive.
Words are inadequate to express how deeply saddened I am given that I am only 19 years old and that my world has been irrevocably altered. In a statement to People, Kylie revealed that her mother was her closest friend.
