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!

So soapers, can you be patient for the return of Kendall as played by Alicia Minshew?  Do you hope things can work out to accomadate her schedule? Let us know!

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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.

All My Children Alum Ben Jörgensen Reportedly Dead At 51

According to his former All My Children castmate, Brian Gaskill. there is sad news in the soap world today.  Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin on All My Children and Chris on As the World Turns passed away on Tuesday at the age of 51, apparently via suicide, although unconfirmed as to his cause of death.

Gaskill, who played Bobby Warner while in Pine Valley shared via his Instagram:  “Sad news to report. Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin Sheffield on All My Children has past away at 51 years old.  My understanding is it was suicide.  I have heard he suffered from Bipolar disorder but as I have not spoke to him in years I do not know all the details. I just want to remember the good times we had on the set of All My Children 24 years ago. He was a good guy and had the courage to play a gay teenager on tv back when it was nowhere near as common to have representation as it is today. He was part of an award winning storyline…but mostly we just had some good times back then…my condolences go out to his friends and family. Please everybody hang in there and reach out for help if you need it. ”

Since the time of Brian’s posting, friends, colleagues and fans have been posting tributes and condolences on the actor’s Facebook page.  You can view that here.

 

In this heartbreaking photo below from Steven Bergman, during his time on As the World Turns, Ben is pictured with the late Nathaniel Marston, as well as Jaime Nicole Dudney and Terri Conn.

On All My Children, Ben was part of the important social issue storyline brought into the ABC legacy soap opera by the iconic Agnes Nixon, who was always trying to move the needle forward in daytime, as the character of Kevin was a gay high school student facing bullying, ridicule and discrimination for his sexuality.

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.
