THE ONE-EYED REBEL

ABC Soaps In Depth - - Feature Interview -

When Nichols first stepped into his iconic role, he had no idea how much fun he was in for. “When Patch was es­tab­lished in 1985, there was an amaz­ing cre­ative team at DAYS… The at­mos­phere on set was elec­tric!” Nichols re­calls. “They gave me a crappy dime-store patch, a leather jacket, and I hit the ground run­ning!” While he ad­mits that wear­ing Steve’s eye cover is “ir­ri­tat­ing,” Nichols has found ways to min­i­mize that. “I don’t walk around wear­ing it un­less I’m ac­tu­ally on the set work­ing,” he of­fers. “Oth­er­wise, it’s up on my fore­head.” He also re­places his glasses dur­ing scenes with mono­vi­sion con­tacts. “The left eye is a read­ing lens, and the right eye is a dis­tance lens,” he shares. “If I need to look at my script or some­thing, I can just flip the patch up and use the read­ing lens.”

Be­fore DAYS, Nichols had played small parts on DAL­LAS and DY­NASTY.
