Alicia Minshew Reveals She Has Been Approached For AMC Reboot!

Courtesy/ABC

Soap fans are of course hoping that Alicia Minshew (Kendall) will be able to participate and come to terms with Prospect Park for the upcoming All My Children online reboot!

The beautiful and talented fan favorite took to Twitter this afternoon to let her fans and followers know just where things are at this point, tweeting,  “I’m so happy for all of you getting your AMC and OLTL shows back! Many of you have asked me-Yes I have been approached. No news yet! We will see. I am shooting 2 other projects that may interfere with the timing. Again we will see. ”

As some have been concerned, many of the original actors of both All My Children and One Life to Live are currently busy and confirmed for other projects, so scheduling could be a key factor in getting some back in time for the reboot.  Can Prospect Park woo Lish?

So would you love to see Alicia back in Pine Valley as Kendall?  Let us know!

Hasn’t anyone from OLTL been contacted? All the news seems to center on AMC.

Since they’re doing alternating story arcs, and it appears that AMC gets the first arc, it would make sense that they have to get that show up and running first. Once they’ve made progress on that, I’m sure they’ll start working on OLTL.

That is what I was thinking. Must be focusing on AMC right now and then they will go full force with OLTL. This may give GH some more time to use Todd, Starr, and John which will be nice. I enjoy them on GH. I think John should go back to OLTL but I like Todd better on GH. He has more characters to play off of there.

Yeh! What about OLTL ? Have the been aproached yet? We need to hear from
Erika Slezak !

Thank you, Susan! Yes, I, too, keep wondering about Erika, the backbone of OLTL. I would speculate that Prospect Park’s been wise enough to approach her and that things are quiet until something’s been worked out?

Elizabeth

Absolutely! And if she’s not available to shoot right away, I hope they work with her and allow her to come back when her projects are done.

Yes I would love to see her back on AMC. I hope that something can be worked out.

isn’t she stunning? i grew to love her and Mother Erica’s relationship… considering how Kendall came about… the rape… not living with her mom… and adding to that… Bianca… like she was the favorite…. Geez her and Zach were fantastic… and watching how Erica and Kendall evolved.. was beautiful.

the Kane women.

Tops is Mona.

I feel all will come back if asked if just to get their AMC family back together..
the cast was family! very close and I do think that will be a factor..

So great all this is coming together and I’ll see my soaps once again!! awesome!

Little worried that we have not heard one OLTL actor confirmed yet, I’ve been worried about it since they were all burned last time….lets hope its just being kept hush hush right now…sounds like they will tape AMC first then OLTL? They have the GH mess to deal with too

Me TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OLTL !!!!!!!!!!!

She was a fan fave and important character, so I hope they can come to an agreement. I really want PP to make this work.

She is my favorite and they really need her and Eden (first Binx) back also. They can work around their schedules just like to do all the time for other daytime actors who have other projects and medical issues. We also need Thorston back as Zach and Susan Lucci back even if she is only on 1 or 2 times a week at first if she is still filming Devious Maids.

It is a reality that these reboots are NOT going to get back all the players but that is exciting!! As long as they have a few familiar faces, some recasts, and fresh new faceds, it is a chance to reenergize the shows! Toss me a couple Martins and Chandlers and a slew of newbies, im on board. Give me some Buchanan action and new families, im there.

If I were an actor, after I’ve played the same part for over ten years, I’d really look at moving on, because while it’s nice to have that steady paycheck, I’d grow stale as a performer. Unfortunately there is a stigma in the business of actors being in a soap, and yes, you can point all you want to those who have found success on the big screen (Susan Sarrandon, Christopher Reeve, Tommy Lee Jones, Demi Moore) for the most part, that time has come and gone.

I guess my biggest question is after the truly horrific writing on AMC its last few years on ABC, are there any stories really left to tell in Pine Valley? I can see OLTL, because there is some diversity and some rich casting, but who really cares about what happens to Erica Kane anymore?

To both Soaps: If you are going to go back and tell the same stale stories, don’t come back.

That’s why I think they should focus on OLTL before AMC….OLTL was at the top of it’s game, when it went off the air….there was really nothing to fix. AMC on the other hand, had so many problems from the horrific storytelling, that it’s going to take pulling several rabbits out of the hat to bring it back to the gold standard that we all once loved.

I hope alicia and Thorston will back together as Kendal and Zach they are fantastic together. I also hope Michael will come back too.

Lew S

Yes, she is needed and hopefully they will work around her schedule.

This is great, I hope they get her also. They also need Bianca played by Eden Reigel. Zach for Kendall would be great also.

Alicia is an integral part of AMC, so I think it’s important that she be included in any re-boot of the show.

I’m still not holding my breath for any of this to happen though. Look what happened last time…what’s different now? Prospect Park had all kinds of actors, writers etc. lined up and it never went anywhere. They just tied up some actors so they couldn’t work on any other soap.

As much as I’d like to see AMC back, I don’t know if I would actually watch it on-line. I would love to see the show on a cable network and be a one-hour show again. I hate B&B’s 30-minute format…the stories move much too slowly.

(I didn’t include OLTL in my comments because I quit watching it the last year it was on.)

Again, what about OLTL ? Are the actors & actress”s being approached as well????? I want my OLTL!!!!!!!!! What’s up with this?????????? Don’t want to be dissappointed again! Any news on this yet? Hmmmmm!!!!!

I would hope that Sarah Michelle Gellar could come back as Kendall, or that there could be a recast. I was never that much of an Alicia Minshew fan at all. The character of Kendall became increasingly annoying, too.

I’m just happy AMC alumni are being contacted unlike last night.

Torrey
Torrey

Glad to see I’m not the only one who feels this way. Although Alicia has a huge fan following…..I was never a big fan of hers. I have always felt that Sarah Michelle Gellar was a much better Kendall. Besides, it doesn’t seem like Alicia is that interested in joining back anyway…..just the tone of that tweet didn’t feel right to me.

Scott (ATWT Fan)

Alicia does have a huge fan following. But her acting is not on the standard that SMG’s is! And I think Alicia lost interest in the series after she had her daughter and after she had to relocate to LA.

We cant expect everyone back. Although I cant imagine how busy this one is?

This all smells extremely fishy. When all is said and done, I don’t think these soaps will ever see the light of day on the internet and even if they make it on, it will be very short-lived. I just don’t see any way that these shows can survive on online advertising alone to offset the costs involved and the almost certain steep decrease in viewers. IMO, Prospect Park is risking major embarrassment again to their reputation. Are we ever going to actually hear direct quotes from a Prospect Park executive about any of this?

Kelly

I agree – I don’t see how these shows are going to survive without any revenue stream coming in because ultimately, they were too expensive to produce on ABC. I think they have probably received financing for a about 6 months to a year and they have to show that they can make money during that time – remember it not just to cover the cost of production, they have to show a profit or the potential for return on investment. It’s a huge gamble. If it doesn’t work the shows will be canceled and we will be in worst shape than when they ended on network TV. I would like to know what creative direction they are going with on both shows. I’ve moved on and will not be watching – these will not be the shows I remember.

I’m starting to think AMC will launch first and both soaps won’t launch together. OLTL might launch later maybe part of the problem is the GH factor with that show. I think its better for them to concentrate on launching one soap at a time anyways.

Scott (ATWT Fan)

According to rumours, each series will run 5-6 weeks, alternating and sharing sets. And it seems like AMC is more likely to launch into those 5-6 runs.

Cady McClain Remembers ‘All My Children’ On Its 50th Anniversary Sharing: “I Will Always Be Grateful For the Experience, and For The Lifelong Relationship With All The Fans”

The beloved All My Children first aired on January 5th, 1970 on ABC and ran on the network until it was canceled back in September of 2013.  The next year, the show received a short-lived reboot online via Prospect Park.

One of the actresses to appear in both the network and online version was Daytime Emmy winning actress Cady McClain, who became soap-famous for her role as Dixie Cooney Martin and together with Michael E. Knight, became one of soaps all-time popular duos as Tad and Dixie.

While so many miss All My Children every single day and the indelible characters created by the late, great Agnes Nixon, McClain took to her Instagram on Sunday to relate what the soap opera meant to her in her life.

Here is what Cady shared along with a cover of Soap Opera Digest featuring Michael Knight and herself as Tad and Dixie: “Today I am celebrating the 50th Anniversary of “All My Children”! I started on the show when I had just turned 19 in the fall of 1988. I worked as a contract player thru 1996. I was back in the fall of 1997 again under contract and worked through 2001. That’s roughly 13 years. Then I came back for a year in 2006, then for a couple months in 2012. Then I did the internet version for six weeks and then… the show was done.

For many years this show and the people on it were like family to me. The makeup artists as much mom’s as my own mom to me at times. And thanks to the work I was able to afford some art school and college as well. I saw many great shows (both American and International) that came to NYC, which opened my eyes to what performance could be. It allowed me to do a lot of Off-Broadway theater and roles in five Indie films while working my day job.

I was nominated three times and won my first Emmy. I made some lifelong friends like Michael E. Knight, James Patrick Stewart, Jill Larson, Penny Bergman, Julia Barr, Lonnie Quinn and many others both in front of and behind the scenes. And most importantly, I was able to take care of my wild but wonderful mother. ‘She who drove me nuts’ but impressed on me the importance of having art in ones life. Who read me poems and took me to museums. My child who died but who I so grateful to have known. Thank you ABC and all the producers and writers who supported me and my work. Because of your support my life was richer, broader, more interesting. I will always be grateful for the experience …. and for the lifelong relationship with all the fans! Massive shout out to the daytime fans who continue to support me in my projects. When I meet one of you on the street I am truly grateful for your time and that we got to share some really special moments together. . .”
