Alicia Minshew Set For One Episode Return To All My Children! Will More Follow?



All My Children fan favorite, Alicia Minshew (Kendall) is making her way back to Pine Valley! But, the news is that at this point in time she is only set for one episode in Prospect Park’s reboot of the series!

TV Line revealed, “Minshew is at this time set for just a one-episode cameo as Kendall, taping this week — though the actress remains in talks to return in a short- or long-term capacity. ”  

In addition, TV Line’s reliable insider also related that “Minshew is shooting scenes with, at the very least, her TV sis Eden Riegel (Bianca).”  Could Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) also be part of this scenario for her one guest shot appearance that has been bantied about?

So soapers, do you hope Alicia gets at least a few scenes with Thorsten Kaye (Zach)?  Are you hoping she will come back for a longer run? Let us know your thoughts!

I am having a hard time seeing a Pine Valley without Kendall. Hope she signs on for more.

Pine Valley has been without Kendall since Sarah Michelle Gellar left in 1995. Alicia Minshew (yawwwwwwn) was such a bore fest.

I totally disagree. Alicia is “Kendall”.

Yay!!! I am so glad that Alicia is coming….hopefully, she’s coming to stay….

One is still more than nothing.

I can take it or leave it…..I wouldn’t mind a recast in this role. I mean, she didn’t originate the role, and I got used to her.

Happy she will be there to help launch AMC.. even if for a scene or two..
Some have moved on with their careers and have obligations to honor and can not just jump back to AMC and some may not want to return.
Anyways, they/the cast of AMC seem to be making the effort and time to help launch AMC, and that is a very nice thing to do..

That would be yes! Zen is the destiny couple & the one I’m most hoping to see!

Ok what do i have to download to see all my children

No downloading needed.. It is streaming online/via HuLu..

Hulu is Free to view soaps by PC..
7.99 a month to watch on TV through a internet box, like Roku ..

I have Roku and Hulu Plus and will be watching the soaps on my TV..
(but- I do prefer to watch my soaps/ GH & Y&R / on the PC ..

Zach and Bianca need Kendall to be in Pine Valley! Hopefully, Alicia’s schedule will allow her to come back full-time in the near future!

Im thrilled one of my favorites Alicia Minshew is making a cameo. I hope that her neck pops in AMC permanently soon as possible.

I think Alicia is fine as Kendall, but if she’s not available for more than a cameo, I would not object to a recast if they really feel the need to keep Kendall. Let’s keep in mind that right now, there is no Greenlee, there is no Ryan and we haven’t heard talk of recasting those roles and there is no Erica, so whom would Kendall be interacting with besides Zach and her younger sister Bianca? I realize the story can go in many directions, but isn’t it fair to say that the majority of Kendall’s scenes were with Ryan, Greenlee, her now departed brother Josh Madden, her mom Erica Kane, and, from time to time, J.R. Chandler –
What about the character of Krystal Carey? She was involved in different ways with Tad Martin (not coming back that we know of, well not yet anyway) and she is
the mom of Marissa, I don’t know if that character is returning.
I’m sorry…..what show was this again….anyway, I can’t speak for others but if I were a writing a storyline that needed a Kendall I would love to see Alicia reprise her role but if she’s not available I think there are plenty of Pretty brunette actresses who would jump at a chance to play Erica Kane’s pain in the neck older daughter.

Sorry to disagree, Kendall was one of the central character in the show. She’s interacted with lots of characters. She’s been in Griffin, Carla, David obit before the show got cancelled…and dont forget Bianca, Miranda and Bianca still in the show where she interacted heavily.

Yes Cystal I understand what you are saying. It was unfortunate that by the time PP came up with a deal, so many actors were not immediately available. It’s nice that they are willing to negotiate with Alicia’s reps, let’s face it that’s what alot of this comes down to. I completely understand that Alicia has a following, and I like her in the role of Kendall since she took it over, but I would accept a recast if it were absolutely necessary – now, mind you, that’s just my overview of it, I understand others feel differently.

You can’t say that like they are never going to be on the show A LOT of these actors have been and are in talks with PP, Some can’t come back due to obligations but want to come back after their obligations are over. If there was no way that Kendall/AM and Erica/SL could ever come back and reprise their roles they could easily have written them out without them being seen on screen, I think them being on Screen at least once is for a reason….I just hope they don’t give Zack a Love interest….There is only one Zendall!!

I hope all this turns out well, I hope that AMC and OLTL make it big time on the net, This means so much to me, I have missed the soaps so much, ABC afternoon will never be the same to me, I refuse to watch anything on that network except GH, I will never return unless the soaps are back on ABC where they belong and never should have been removed, I hope that my heart doesn’t get broken again if the soaps should fail on the net, There are a lot of older people who don’t have a computer and will miss seeing the soaps make a comeback, I really wish they were coming back to TV, Anyway Welcome back AMC and OLTL I will be watching and supporting my soaps, I hope I get to see them for many, many years.

I wish she will sign up specially if they could not get the real Diva Erica Kane. She’s the only one who can fill the shoe of her mother .

Alicia is slated to Co star in a Up coming Film called Here and Now. I bet that is why she is not coming back yet except for that One Episode. I’d be willing to bet that she comes back after she is done with her movie…..

This is great news. I hope Alicia will come back for a longer stay. I love Kendall and I love Zach and Kendall, and I think AMC needs her and the Slaters back on the show.

Oh yes I want her back full time. Come on! What’s Zack without her and vice versa!!!!

Would LOVE to see her back permanently — although I only liked her with Zack — and I only liked Zack with Kendall! Before they got together, I didn’t like either of them!! She’s got to come back AND get back together with Zack!!

she’s kinda like amc’s kkl. Not a great actress but has front and center storylines. The real casting coup though belongs to annie elonzeh. Wasn’t she formerly on gh? She was on the failed charlie’s angels reboot w/ minkankles kelly who is the gf of chris evans from that racist capt. america movie. This modern retelling of hatfield and mccoys has cast elonzeh as the leading lady. She’s the adopted daughter of the rich family battling the blue collar family. And of course she falls for the leading man from the blue collar family. Soaps love their core families battling bec of economic status. You’d think soaps would have more families battling bec of racial differences given that there must be conflict. But hollywood doesn’t wanna go there bec the only racial storylines hollywood prefers are “white savior” storylines where the white chars help the black chars who are often portrayed by hollywood as coming from lower economic status compared to the white chars. Of course the rich family and poor family have to both be white bec hollywood would be uncomfortable making the rich family be racial minorities. Thus elonzeh’s char is adopted. There really should be more adopted racial minority chars on soap operas. That’s the only way to have more racial diversity bec hollywood only writes white families as the core families on majority of their soaps. Chars of color on soaps tend to be tokens if they are not part of the white core families. That’s tolerance for tolerant hollywood.

I’m so HAPPY I can hardly contain myself. It is about time AMC is back. ABC , CBS
and NBC really don’t care what the public wants in programing. They all put on a new program, and before we know it is canceled.

I would love To see Erica,Kendall and Zach come back to All My Children for a long long time.I just love them.

show won’t be the same without Zendal!!! and Alicia is Kendall.

Without the original cast members it won’t even be like All My Children…just a new soap, new faces…not sure about it yet. All My Children was my favorite of all soaps but I need to see the old faces…

PLEASE bring Kendall back. In my opinion her role as Erica’s daughter was one of the best. The return of the series is just not complete without Erica and Kendall!

Yes please return Kendall. Zach needs her!!!!!!!! The show will be complete.

it;s weird cause half the cast is still missing !where’s erica ,kendall,, ???

miss Alicia Minchew, hope she comes back soon. Also I am very unhappy that All My Children will be on only on Monday and Wednesday. Way too short. I never saw One life to live so only seeing AMC two days a week is not enough. Fans are so happy to have these shows back again even though only on the internet for free.
Thanks for at least having two days but please try to go back to four days. We the fans from the beginning really love your show. The very best to you and your actors and actresses as well as your backstage crew, writers, etc. GOOD LUCK!!!

It would be great if she returned and was reunited with Zack. It would make AMC seem a little more like the “original!

When are Tad & Erica returning ?

AMC needs Tad and Erica .How about during the winter holidays?

Alicia is kendall and pine valley is the kanes I need alicia and eden and erica back!

I hope Alicia returns to AMC. I hope she gets a long term contract and I hope she has some scenes with Thorsten.

I hope Alicia returns to AMC. I hope she gets a long term contract and I hope she has some scenes with Thorsten.

Got to have alicia and susan yes thank goodness that jesse and angie have held down the fort they are a power couple and their strength as actors is the only thing that makes me tune in to amc. Thanks to OWN amc can live on be brave pushing the boundaries .Iwas going to beg Oprah to make up for her horrible reunion goodbye for amc.She missed the boat on that intervjew. It is Alicia and Susan and Debbie Morgan, Jesse( forgot real name right now ). One of the most memorable moments of acting by anyone film or television was ALICIA’S visit to the sight of Zack’s plane crash. She gave a performance matching talent of all of the great actors. It brought me to tears and stays with me as one of the greatest actresses of our time.Oprah give them a full hour. The only reason I subscribe to OWN is because of AMC

Billy Miller Memorial Scholarship Endowment Created at His Alma Mater to Help Others ‘Realize Their Dreams’

Two months since three-time Daytime Emmy-winning actor, Billy Miller passed away, the beloved All My Children (ex-Richie), General Hospital (ex-Jason/Drew) and The Young and the Restless (ex-Billy) star, will now have a permanent scholarship endowment in his honor at the University of Texas at Austin which was Miller’s alma mater.

Through the scholarship, it will be able to help radio/television and film undergraduate students with financial need. Billy’s family and friends have established this permanent scholarship in his memory, naming it the William Jon Miller II “Billy Miller” Memorial Scholarship. They hope the endowment will be a legacy to his life and love of acting.

Before becoming soap-famous, Billy graduated from the the university’s department of Radio-Television-Film (RTF) at the Moody College of Communication. On its official website, they shared the news of this special memorial scholarship and how Miller died at the age of 43 after surrendering his life to bipolar depression, which he struggled with his whole life.

Megan Hubbell, Billy’s sister, expressed, “We want something positive to be held in his name in perpetuity through the University he loved. He would be honored to know that even in death, he can help someone else realize their dreams.”

She added how she hoped her immensely talented brother will be remembered: “I hope BJ (as Billy was known by to his friends and family) is remembered for the kind-hearted, silly, funny, goofy, generous, beautiful soul that he was His megawatt smile, deep belly laugh and gorgeous mug were gifts on screen, but his true self was a bright light that will be carried with us forever.”

According to Miller’s family, Billy had his picks of schools and UT was his first choice. When he first came to the university, Billy started in the zoology program before switching to radio-television-film, where he felt he belonged. Miller was one of just 20 students at the time accepted into the department’s prestigious production-sequence program.

“BJ was extremely proud to be a Texas Longhorn and always remembered his time there fondly,” Hubbell said. “The time he spent at UT allowed him the space to explore who he wanted to be and what he wanted to accomplish.”

In honoring her brother’s work and strength to persevere in the often heartbreaking world of entertainment, Megan related: “I always admired the guts it took to go after a dream in Hollywood that so many people tried to discourage. He heard, ‘You’ll never make it’ more times than I care to count, but he used those comments as fuel and said, ‘Watch me.’”

Miller’s roles went far beyond those on daytime soap operas, as throughout his career he played major parts in primetime’s Suits, Ray Donovan and Castle to name but a few.

In his death, Billy’s family is encouraging people to take stock of their own mental health. “BJ would want anyone struggling with intrusive thoughts to seek professional help,” Hubbell said. “Do not suffer in silence or try to muscle through on your own. Mental health is vitally important and shouldn’t be spoken about in silos behind closed doors but rather in open forums with open arms. Shame has no place in the discussion to seek help.”
