Courtesy/ABC

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”.

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..

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

Hulu is Free to view soaps by PC..
or
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,… Read more »

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.

Johnny
Guest

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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!

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… Read more »

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.

Photo: JPI

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.
