The reason? The young As the World Turns star is involved in a young, homosexual romance in that show's storyline. We think it's great and we admire Hansis and co-star Jake Sibermann for making the angle so believable.
Meanwhile, here are five fun tidbits about Hansis:
- His real name is Evan Vanfossen Hansis. Vanfossen means "House of the Fox."
- He'd be writing comic books if he weren't an actor.
- He replaced Jake Weary as Luke Spencer. Weary is the son of Guiding Light actress Kim Zimmer.
- Van is an avid cyclist who rides around New York whenever he can.
- Favorite actor? Sir Ian McKellan.
