All My Children is definitely looking to add the character of Cassandra Foster, Dr. Angie Hubbard’s (Debbi Morgan) adopted daughter to the canvas of the online version of the series!

According to Soap Opera Digest today, “AMC is seeking to recast the role of Cassandra, last played by YaYa DaCosta in 2008” Many remember that DaCosta was the runner-up of cycle 3 of America’s Top Model! 

The last time we saw Cassandra … after having problems in Pine Valley she high-tailed it to Paris!   So who do you think would be a recast for Angie’s daughter, Cassandra Foster?  Any casting suggestions? Let us know!

Although I’d love her back on OLTL, how about Renee Goldsberry !

I think Renee is Awesome and wish OLTL could find a way to bring her back, she’s a bit too old to play Angie’s daughter.

This is exciting! I missed Cassandra when she left the series. YaYa was amazing in the role, hopefully they find someone equally as good! Maybe Davetta Sherwood?

They really never gave YaYa DaCosta a chance.

I dont see this as a necessary cast addition at all.

Neither do I ~ they need STRONG experienced actors to make this thing really work, not just pretty faces with marginal acting talent. I love Angie and Jesse
as played by Debbi Morgan and Darnell W. but I barely remember the girl who played their daughter briefly – I guess they have to develop stories somehow though. I think the fans should have more say in characters ~ times have changed and today’s higher Tech world should allow for greater interaction with viewers.

Oye! “Reservations” about …America’s Top Model….”Wannabes’ ”

I don’t know her from the next oscar winner….

IMO… I just hope they have the budget to hire good actors… This comeback and/or Sequel needs to be operating on all cylindars…. quality… to SOS…. save our shows.

it’s too much when hunks/models – take the place of established ACTORS…

I thought Jesse and Angie’s son was a good actor… is he coming back?…. Dr. Frankie Hubbard.

good luck to her.

This is a great idea. No idea who to cast but I’m sure they’ll do a good job casting. They also need Colby and Pete Cortland recasts!

I was just going to say that!! She was my favorite Colby, she has been doing some TV movies. Guess maybe a recast would be in order, if she does not want to go back East

Weren’t there like Three gals who played Colby, JR’s younger sister? Not exactly a major character role, almost any passably good blonde haired young actress could do that role I would think – I still think that the “core” of the production had better really have some strong actors holding it together ~

Darnell and Debbie are pretty strong! But I do think a Martin family member is nessasary!

I was sort of hoping that the “50ish” actors would stick together, meaning that they are not the young young set, but I was thinking that Michael E. Knight, who is good friends with Darnell and Debbie, would join the cast, as of now it doesn’t seem so, but who knows. Would not be so easy to re-cast the role of Tad Martin.

Hasn’t even aired yet and already receiving negative feed back. We don’t know what characters are necessary until the show starts airing. I would like to see Kent Masters-King cast as Cassandra, she’s 39 but can pass for early 20’s.

Wow did not realise she was 39, she does look young.

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.

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.

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.
