What can one say about the loveable Kevin Fisher? He’s certainly the boy next door with a crazy past. Kevin has had his ups and downs when it comes to love and seems to have a thing for women who are a little mentally unstable.

He’s been very quiet on the soap as of late, being on recurring contract, but let’s hope he takes center stage again very soon!
