Cameron Mathison who is visiting the Big Apple for the final date of A Tribute to Pine Valley personal appearance series tonight stopped into TV Guide.com’s studios to discuss the latest on Prospect Park and how he would like to see All My Children going forward online.

During the video segment, Mathison reveals that his long time on-screen love interest, Rebecca Budig (Greenlee) is open to … possibilities, in terms of Prospect Park and Cameron encourages,  “I would say to the fans to try to be patient.”

Cameron also says that the reports that Susan Lucci is not joining All My Children online is not a done deal, and that Prospect Park and Susan are still in contact.

One of the more interesting things in the interview is that Mathison had a idea that when AMC premieres online it should jump the story five years ahead from where it was left on network TV.

So what do you think soapers? Would it be cool to fast forward Pine Valley five years when its online? Let us know! For now watch the video segment with Cam!

I’m starting not to care anymore…. It’s two months until January, and we the fans still have no clue of what’s going on with AMC. I know I should be patient, but it’s getting harder and harder to accomplish that. This whole not knowing who is signing on and who isn’t, doesn’t build intrigue….it just makes me furious. I’m mad that AMC was cancelled in the first place, but this not knowing is just making it worse. Get on the ball PP and get us informed!!!

Don’t think I agree on the 5 year jump. We left a great cliffhanger. We want to see what happened with the shot AND Cara’s baby. Also want to see David find happiness with Cara and baby Cara/David. Ohhh I just can’t wait to see it period! I miss AMC!

I love Cameron and I am happy that he did this interview. I know most people don’t care for Greenlee and Ryan but I loved both of them under the right writers. I really want to hear more actors signing on, especially Susan Lucci.

Duh big no to 5 yr jump. We need our soap to continue as promised in the most recognizable way with the majority of the current cast and story lines. These story lines were not wrapped up period. Jr who did he shoot? Cara/David falling in love? Baby on way what will happen David continue on good side or slide back as usual to Dr. of Doom. Regardless a 3 mth waiting period and then a 5 yr jump would be way too much of a transition for AMC. The fans want to recognize and need to re-connect with this… Read more »

And what about David’s other secret save besides Stuart? The woman who was in the room with Dixie wearing the bracelet with a B on it? We have to know who else was saved by Orpheus!!! Again we want our soap back and recognizable as possible. We have already been cheated out of 3mths of viewing bring it back as close to the day it left as possible!

No, a five-year jump is a really bad idea. I sincerely hope they continue from the point of the cliffhanger and that they retain as many original actors as possible. AMC needs to shift as seamlessly as possible, without gimmicks. I will definitely be watching.

No jump ahead! I want it to follow up right from where it ended with the gunshot. I also want to see David & Cara’s romance develop & have David end up delivering their beautiful little bundle of joy. I hope we’ll soon be hearing about more developments such as all the other actors being signed on or at least most of them.

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.
