I wish her well on “Tainted Dreams.” She will be missed on AMC, but you never know what the future holds. Maybe one day she’ll be back.

ill always wonder now if ABC hadnt moved AMC from New York to California if PP wouldve been able to convince some of AMCs other former stars to join the reboot like they have with OLTL, that didnt make the move, and has a better selection of its vets. I dont mind cameos, and AMC is getting back some faves of mine for longer stays like Dixie, David, Brooke, Angie and Jessie and hopefully some new favorites will interest me but OLTL feels more like the serial i remember than AMC does. However, im still giving both equal chances to… Read more »

I think it’s great that Alicia has other projects going on. She was very good in the role of Kendall Hart, but I still think (I’ve said this before) that if the writers feel that Kendall is a key character in Pine Valley, they should consider a recast – that is strictly my opinion. If they feel they want to “write around” her until Alicia becomes available, that’s fine too. As for Susan Lucci, who of course plays her mom, Erica Kane, if she can’t come back, write around her or write Erica out of the show for a while,… Read more »

Totally agree! They should recast the role of Kendall Hart….Alicia was a recast. It took me a while to warm up to her, because I was a huge Sarah Michelle Gellar fan, but I eventually caved and began to enjoy Alicia’s portrayal of the character. They could easily find someone to take on this role. Quit treating this actors like they are irreplaceable…..She will be missed, but soap fans have always been resilient, and we will move on and accept a new actress in this role.

Great fun interview. I’m so excited about Tainted Dreams and can’t wait until it airs. I love the theme of “behind the scenes at a soap” and knowing the story is written by Sonia makes it even more exciting because it will be realistic. I can’t wait to see Alicia Minshew in that role and I hear there are other great actors on board too, i.e., Austin Peck and Walt Willey.

I am an AMC fan and will miss Kendall, but right now I’m more excited about Tainted Dreams. Can’t wait.

I’m very happy for Alicia and looking forward to Tainted Dreams. And I most definitely want her back on AMC as Kendall Hart Slater! She is Kendall.

I’m still hopeful we’ll see Alicia on AMC. I get the feeling she still feels attached to the role of Kendall and AMC seems to want her on the show, too. In the meantime, I wish her well on her new projects. It’s great to see her so busy, happy and looking amazing.

Great interview with Alicia and Sonia. I am happy for Alicia, she has so many projects in front of her. Can’t wait to see her in Tainted Dreams. Maybe with Sonia, a producer at AMC and creator of Tainted Dreams, she can work it out so that Alicia can appear again in AMC while doing Tainted Dreams.

I hate to agree, but I do. I wonder if AMC is successful on line, how many of the hold outs would ask to come back? I say they should focus on the cast they have and make AMC a greatshow.

I was wondering if there will be any vampires on the webs Tainted Dreams? Tainted Dreams was the title for Port Charles vampire story that was on years ago and its theme was the song by the same name, so i wonder if there will be a connection or was the vampire stuff finished on GH? Im joking…

I like the idea of going behind the scenes of a soap and the soap-in-a-soap concept. I’m looking forward to watching Tainted Dreams. I think Alicia Minshew will be great as the “Sonia” of the show. It sounds like Sonia knows what she is talking about when it comes to soaps and is proud to be working on them. This sounds like a great series.

Thanks for posting the interview.

All My Children and Guiding Light Vet, Gil Rogers Passes Away

Gil Rogers, who played one of the all-time most dastardly villains in soaps on All My Children and was the on-screen father to the one and only Reva Shayne (Kim Zimmer) on Guiding Light, has died at age 87.

News came via his daughter, Amanda Rogers on her Facebook page, relating that Gil passed away on March 2nd.

The actor had played Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Jenny’s (Kim Delaney) father, Ray Gardner on All My Children from 1977-1978 making multiple appearance though 2001, then later as Hawk Shayne on Guiding Light from 1985-1992 making multiple appearance through 2009.

Gil also appeared on Another World, Search for Tomorrow and The Doctors.

In her post, Amanda wrote: “Gil Rogers died this morning. As you all know, my dad was awesome. He was my best friend, confidant, mentor and just an awesome dad. He came to pick me and  Charlotte Whitaker Zdanowski up at clubs at 2AM in our teens to keep us safe, and drank bourbon with me every day since moving out here 2 years ago. He was welcoming and kind, funny and gregarious, a shameless flirt and a fierce protector. He loved his dinners with grandkids and endured animated movies and discussions about pokemon. And I miss him so terribly already. He died in his sleep, without pain or fear. I am so grateful to have had such a great father and to have spent these past 2 years with him every day.”

Check out this vintage scene below from All My Children where Ray played by Rogers blows up the Martin house.

Now share your remembrances of Gil’s performances and along with condolences for his family in the comment section.

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.
