The current Kendall Hart Slater, Alicia Minshew,  made a statement this afternoon after the confirmation that the original Kendall, played by Sarah Michelle Gellar is now coming back to All My Children before its network television conclusion on September 23rd for a guest appearance!  In response to Gellar’s earlier comments that Gellar wanted to come back and play a different role than Kendall, Alicia had this to say to Soap Opera Digest about the endless possibilities of a scene with her!

Alicia Minshew: “That is brilliant! I think her ideas are brilliant and I hope if she does have a scene at ConFusion that I get to be in it! Whatever she ends up doing, I hope I get to be a part of it. I think it would be so funny if the two of us looked at each other and went, ‘Don’t I know you from somewhere?’ or if we said the same thing at the same time and looked at each other like, ‘Hmmmm.’ I’ve only met Sarah one time, but she couldn’t have been sweeter. I would love, love, love to work with her.  This is what’s really weird.  I actually had a dream about her last night! She had her baby right around when I had Willow and I was just looking at a picture of her with her daughter in a magazine, and maybe that’s why she popped up in my dream, but I totally dreamed that we were hanging out doing mommy things together. It was crazy!”

So what do you think Kendall vs. Kendall? What should the historic soap moment be if both Alicia and Sarah are in a scene together?

For copyright reasons, I don’t think so. This is ABC after all.

As far as I’m concern, Alicia is Kendall and Sarah is Buffy.

I love it! Alicia is my all time favorite daytime actress but SMG is a close second so to have the two of them on together is like a dream come true.

I WOULD LOVE TO SEE ALICIA AND SARAH IN THE SAME SCENE. I HAVE WATCHED AMC SINCE THE FIRST DAY IT CAME ON THE AIR AND ALL THE MEMORIES IS WHAT WE A RE GOING TO HAVE SOON. ALTHOUGH I HEAR THINGS ABOUT A CABLE CHANNEL FOR IT WE , THE FANS, CAN ONLY HOPE THAT BECOMES REAL. I LOVE ALICIA AS KENDALL AND THE FANS HAVE GOTTEN TO KNOW HER AS KENDALL BUT THE EARLY FANS WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER SMG AS THE YOUNGER KENDALL. THESCENES WITH SUSAN LUCCI WERE JUST ON THATS FOR SURE.

I would just like to be a fly on the wall when she runs into Susuan Lucci ! Don’t they have an intense dislike for each other? Or is that nasty gossip!

I love that she is coming back. I’ve always loved her and loved her as Kendall but, I feel that Alicia is a great Kendal and did not want Sarah to come back if it meant Alicia was going to off the air. I love SMG she has always been a nice person and though I’m not sure, but years ago I think I read somewhere that Susan did not like SMG. It might have been a jeou thing as SMG was the one the show centered at that time, and SL came back after not being 100% successful off… Read more »

In addition you could have Sarah’s character go on the attack against Erica and have Alicia as Kendall stand up for Erica and then have Sarah say something like…”You can bet if I was your daughter I wouldn’t be so nice” haha

I like Alicia as Kendall but to me the real Kendall Heart is SMG. She originated the roll as Kendall and when I think of Kendall the first picture that comes to my head is SMG. Not saying Alicia is not doing a great job, she is and she is fine !!!! Talk about a stunning woman… So if I had to lose SMG, Alicia is a good replacement… and nice to look at. Maybe they should bring SMG back as Silver, Erica’s sister !!!! I should be a writer for AMC. It wouldnt be cancelled if I was in… Read more »

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.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.
