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.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.

AMC Alum Sarah Michelle Gellar Reflecting on Her Time on Soaps: “Anything I Can Do to Continue the Legacy I’m Very Proud Of”

Daytime fans knew of Sarah Michelle Gellar her way before her Buffy the Vampire Slayer days, when she stepped on to the small screen as Erica’s (Susan Lucci) troubled daughter Kendall Hart on ABC’s All My Children. 

Gellar played the role from 1993 to 1995, and made a brief return in 2011 as the show came to its conclusion on ABC. Additionally, Sarah won a Daytime Emmy for her performance in the Outstanding Younger Actress category in 1995.

Sarah has partnered with Lysol for their brand’s Disinfecting Wipes “Buy One, Donate One” program. where now through September 26, whenever a pack of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes is purchased, another pack will automatically be donated to an under-resourced school through the Kids In Need Foundation.

The program is aimed to help curb the spread of illness-causing germs in schools this back-to-school season, a total of up to 16 million packs of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes will be donated to Title I schools across the country.

The program is the latest component of Lysol’s HERE for Healthy Schools initiative. Started in 2019 with the mission to help curb the spread of preventable illness and to help kids miss less school so they are able to learn, grow and thrive, HERE for Healthy Schools has provided educational materials for students and Lysol disinfecting supplies for educators and administrators to more than 49,000 schools across the country. This year, HERE for Healthy Schools is focused on helping to protect children, educators and parents as they make their big return to in-person learning in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking with TV Insider on the partnership, Gellar recalled her time on the soaps and how it changed her career and outlook, noting: “it was the training ground for the rest of my career.”

She went on to say: “I made incredible friends at that time and I learned incredible work habits, and soap operas are an intense amount of work, and I’m incredibly grateful for that time and the people that I met.  We live in a world now where my kids don’t even really know what a soap opera is, so anything I can do to continue the legacy I’m very proud of.”

So, do you remember Sarah’s time on AMC? What do you think of her thoughts on her time on the soaps? Comment below.
