All My Children has part of fan favorite couple ‘Zendall’ slated to appear on the upcoming Prospect Park revival of the series when heartthrob Thorsten Kaye signed on to reprise his role of Zach Slater.  However, one of the top hold-outs thus far has been his on-screen lady love played by Alicia Minshew (Kendall).   However, according to an update today exclusively at TV Line.com, Minshew related her status with the online reboot!

“I’m really excited for the fans to have their shows back,” said Minshew. “I am currently in discussions with Prospect Park to work out scheduling around other projects I have already committed to, We’re keeping the lines of communication open, and hopefully it can work out for me to join later on.”

Alicia has been one busy bee since AMC concluded on ABC, shooting two independent films with another one in which she will co-star up next titled …  Here And Now!

Happy at least i half my couple from AMC and I’ll keep the faith that both couples transition to the new format since i half my oltl couple too!

Yes we need Kendal abs Zendal. Where is Rebecca Budig. We need Greenlee

yes we need Greenlee I love Rebecca Budig So excited for All My Children to have new life.

Rebecca Budig has gone onto the record stating that she has been asked, however, has some other projects she’s involved in at the moment, but is open to suggestions of how they could make it work for her to return.

I hope they do manage to get AM back on board at some point. But I hope they do it WITHOUT Rebecca Budig. Her and Kendall together were a toxic and unenjoyable friendship I could never believe in. And the bitter Valley Girl Greenlee has been a played out character for longer than I can remember.
I wish she and Cam Matt well – far, far away from Pine Valley.

I would be happy if it was just Erica and Miranda and Maybe Bianca on periodic visits. I think it would great for it skip a generation and Erica having to deal with her Teen Granddaughter, like the old Mona/Erica moments.

I am totally thrilled about AMC coming home to Pine Valley. I am hoping for as many cast members as they can get. I will be satisfied if the rest make in and out visits to Pine Valley. Keep their door open. Who knows, they may finish up the projects that they have started and then be able to move back to Pine Valley. Father Clarence has been with me on this long journey. He tells me it is all going to work out. My trust is in his hands. He whispered this to me the first day AMC went off the air and now look. Who would have thought!

I would be very happy for a new actress to take over the role of Kendall. I would rather have the original Bianca back . I will be happy to just get something going that I can watch. I can wait for actors to join in later.

Can we be patient? I think we have already answered that question. 🙂

never forget- back when only 3? from AMC wanted to go with PP..
Most likely they sill don’t care too ..

I could personally live with Alicia Minshew as Kendall. I say re-cast the character or try and bring Sarah Michelle Gellar back to the fold. Moving AMC back to the east coast is what’s driving the show to not get its core actors/actresses back. A lot of them located back to Los Angeles for the series, and that’s why it worked. You’ve got to get people invested in re-locating their whole lives again to make it work.

My only hope is that Christina Bennett Lind (Bianca), Sarah Glendening (Marissa), Rebecca Budig (Greenlee) and Natalie Hall (Colby) sign on for the re-boot. Without them, I won’t be interested in their characters any longer.

Patient yes. Would love them all back. Will watch no matter who is there.

Never cared for the role of Bianca or the story line.

I’m hopeful that Alicia Minshew can return as soon as possible because (a) she’s the definitive Kendall, a character that I love, and (b) she and Thorsten Kaye’s Zach have dynamite chemistry together. Greenlee (RB) would be a welcome addition too, but somehow I’ve always preferred Kendall. Kendall’s the daughter of Erica Kane, the daughter most like Erica, and a mighty Kane Woman. But what about Bianca—shouldn’t she be back too, for the same reason? Both of Erica’s daughters need to be on the scene for the reboot!

My dream would be to have Kendall, Greenlee, Erica, Bianca, Zach, Erica and Jack back. No, truth is my dream would be to have all of AMC characters back; they never should have been cancelled. I still refuse to watch ABC Daytime and as for the CHEW, I still say ABC was crazy!

Katie I so agree with you I still won’t watch abc daytime and the Chew should be on all the other cooking channels. Do they think they don’t have enough of them yet. Kendall played by Alica has got to come back. What will Zack do without her?? Not that he cant’ play any role they give him but the show is about them to together for ever.No one else will ever fit into her role with Zack. So I hope they don’t try that one.

How about it for Alica to return as Kendall???

If Alicia isn’t back as Kendall, Zandall won’t work. It shocked me to see TK signed on for sure, but without AM it isn’t Zandall. So PLEASE find a way to work with her schedule and bring her back as Kendall.
