AMC's Thorsten Kayes Speaks On Zendall's Future & Susan Haskell On OLTL!

In an new blog post on the Tainted Dreams website, renowned soap columnist, Carolyn Hinsey spoke with All My Children fan favorite Thorsten Kaye (Zach) following the first week of production of Prospect Park’s reboot of the series.

In the interview, Kaye discusses the atmosphere on set, the storytelling, the recent cast photo shoot, and more.   There were two interesting excerpts that caught our eye, that fans have been inquiring about. First, what will be the state of the marriage between Zack and Kendall, in lieu of Alicia Minshew (Kendall) not yet confirmed to return to the series, and if Thorsten’s real-life wife, Susan Haskell might make a return to One Life to Live as Marty Saybrooke.  Here is what he had to say below:

Thorsten on the state of the relationship of Zendall moving into AMC 2.0:  “Someone says, ‘I’m sorry about you and Kendall.’  That makes me want to watch: ‘What happened? Where is she?’ I think people will want to tune in to see how we tell the story. In theater, you often know the end of the play but you still go to see how the actors tell the story. In soaps, you don’t know the ending which is cool in its own way. ‘Hey, you and Kendall aren’t together and your wife may be with someone else.’ That informs every scene I do. I care about where we left these people. ‘Where are they now? The writers aren’t ignoring past relationships. I’ll jump on that train.”

Thorsten on if Susan Haskell might return to OLTL even though the couple is raising two young daughters:  “I hope she does One Life to Live.   It would be nice for both of us to work a half hour away. This has been a tough few months for Connecticut. I want to be close to home.”

So AMC fans, what do you think about how the show will handle the relationship

One should never assume Kendall and Zach will never be again. Great soap couples are always kept apart for one reason or another yet later thrown back into eachother’s lives. Maybe Alicia Minshew isn’t able to come back now but might later in the future. If not her, a recast which I know is unheard of for most viewers. Who knows, a new character could come along and have a strong chemistry where viewers will root for them instead. I would love for Susan Haskell to return to OLTL. Don’t like how they massacred her character but it could be… Read more »

I agree Melonie. It’s been done before where a character is brought back into the show at a later date. It would be sad to see her recast, but again, it has been done before and accepted. Alicia’s shoes will be tough to fill though, but I am sure open to a new Kendall if Alicia can’t come back.

Kendall has always annoyed me , the actress I don’t think can even act as she always made me think THIS is NOT Eric’s daughter at all.
I think Zach is boring and wasted character for Thorsten Kayes and so he needs to pack he’s bags and head over to OLTL at Patrick so we can bring back mean full stories. It’s not so hard to write meaning full stories but AMC has proven
different in in this case. This is why soaps fizzled.

I love Thorsten and since Zach on all my children is not with Kendell now I would love to see him return as Patrick and workwith Susan again

Love him! So talented. I wonder where Zach and Kendall’s kids are though. Would she leave them? Would she take them? Interesting plot twist. Also proves that no couple is happy for long on daytime soaps.

Its really hard to predict how they’ll handle the realationship between Zach and Kendall when you you dont know if the actress is returning or not or if they’ll recast. Id b all 4 Marty returning to OLTL but there not be much there for her now that son Cole and granddaughter Hope were killed off on GH. However if they could get Starr back for a brief story arc with Marty accusing Starr for Cole & Hopes deaths, even though Starr wasnt responsible, something like that could work.

True love finds a way. Heck, Zach rose from the dead, didn’t he? Maybe Alicia Minshew will return, maybe not. Maybe they recast Kendall. This is why we tunein tomorrow, yes? As for Marty back in Llanview, I would accept it IF she returned as a strong vibrant woman, someone who realizes, despite her life’s tragedies, she has a new lease on life, and not as the plotline punching bag/loon she was in her final days previous. I wonder if we will be forwarded five years in Llanview as we are in Pine Valley come premiere week this spring. Does… Read more »

I love Susan Haskell and I love Marty Saybrooke. Considering the radical changes made in the character at the end, mental illness and murder, it’s isn’t likely Dr. Seybrooke will return. Besides, she flew off into the sunset with the newly found alive Patrick (Kaye’s old character). Perhaps she could make a clandestine return to grieve the loss of her son and granddaughter but I don’t see her coming back permanently. Which is a shame because Susan Haskell is a fantastic actor. Haskell and Kaye are super together. Since it looks like Alicia Minshew has moved on with her life,… Read more »

They are jumping years ahead.. a lot can happen to a soap couple in an years time and even more in 5yrs time (not knowing how many years ahead)
I do not see AMC picking up from where it let off with the exception of a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 year coma for the JR story..
AMC is going to look and be different, but yet somewhat the same..
A couple can not be the same when their children are not, they will be grownup..

Can’t wait to see how all will play out!!!

“Sorry about you and Kendall” could mean a lot things. I am going to wait see who says this to him. I still have high hopes that Alicia will be back for the next arc. For now I am just going to enjoy seeing Thorsten and having our show back.

Omg Finaly!!!! Susan Haskell please come back ! I would even accept Susan as a new Kendall!!

Fans seem to not like recasts generally speaking, but if Alicia cannot return as Kendall, and Kendall is important to the storyline, re-cast Kendall. It’s a part in a soap opera, if it is well cast, and of course that’s an important “if”, I think it would be fine. Before everyone screams at me, please keep in mind it’s just my opinion – they have recast J.R. Chandler, and he was played very well by Jacob Young so if they need to recast Kendall, I think it would be fine too.

Kaye was so angered at the way they made Marty, Kaye refused to play Patrick to escort off. Would been great to see a Marty and Todd closure since the guy she slept with Victor and not her rapist.

I’m glad both shows are back,but it is hard to believe that Tad and Dixie and to a lesser extent Kendal and Zac would ever separate after beating death to reunite.It would be so hard to believe,so hopefully they get creative about the separations.Perhaps outside forces not connected to their relationships are keeping them temporarily apart.

I agree that it’s going to be hard to accept that Zach and Kendall are not together for any reason. I have to hope that AMC knows what they’re doing and doesn’t blow them up too much. Whether Alicia returns or there’s a recast, Kendall is a core character and she’s got a great history with Zach. I’m willing to watch AMC without Kendall, and I’m very glad to hear how highly Kaye thinks of this new version and how well he’s being treated, but a Zach and Kendall reunion is a must for me.

Susan would make a great Kendall .. if Alicia isnt coming back

Being true to the previous stories, if Susan returned as Marty (OLTL), she would probably end up in jail or the “nut-house”. She doesn’t need to go to Llanview to mourn her son, if she wanted to do it, she should have done so already in Port Charles (where he did die).

I personally, would not be opposed to Susan returning as a Kendall recast. I truly believe that it could work. Want AMC 2.0 to work. To do so, we need Zack and Kendall as part of show!

There are a lot of talented actresses out there, some who might resemble Alicia somewhat more, who could be recast in the role, if they decide to go that way. I love Susan Haskell, but she does not resemble Kendall enough to work as her recast. It would be hard to believe it, unless they came up with some crazy plastic surgery storyline, which has been done before. On OLTL, Patrick and Marty were magic, but those days are over. I don’t think there is anything left for Susan at OLTL. Since there is no Tad and no Kendall, maybe… Read more »

Chrishell Stause and Singer G Flip Confirm Relationship

During the premiere of Friday night’s Selling Sunset reunion show on Netflix, there were several major moments, but one of them surprised many.

Former All My Children, Days of our Lives, and ‘Young and the Restless’ star, Chrishell Stause confirmed that she is in a relationship with Australian singer, G Flip.

Stause revealed that she is seeing the non-binary singer after the moderator, Tan France asked Chrishell if she was seeing anyone. The former soap star expressed: “I recently have been spending a lot of time with someone that’s very important to me. Their name is G Flip. They’re non-binary, so they go by they/them,” adding, “They are an extremely talented musician.”

Leave it to her soap background to play a part in the ultimate connection between Chrishell and G Flip. Stause explained: “It started because I was just going to be in their video. And it’s about this chaotic love story. I come from soaps, I love acting. And with the job that we have, I don’t always get to do it. At first of course I was like yes, let’s do that.”

G Flip’s latest single GAY 4 Me is out now and her new single is dropping on May 13th, GET ME OUTTA HERE.

Previously, Chrishell was dating her ‘Selling Sunset’ boss, Jason Oppenheim, who opined about the break-up of their relationship on the special. In a scene shown on the Netflix special, Oppenheim shared, “This is not the time of my life where I want to have a family.”  Months back, reports had surfaced that the couple had differences they could not overcome.  However, now Jason expressed that Stause was “the love of my life” and said he may regret forever the fact that he let her go.

Now back to present time.  According to PEOPLE.com, Stause is enjoying the company of G Flip, and the two were seen out and about at West Hollywood’s nightclub/bar, The Abbey, this past Thursday cozying up to one another.

In addition, it appears that Stause and G Flip are now living together in Chrishell’s Los Angeles home, which reportedly was purchased, in part, by her selling her wedding to her ex husband, This Is Us star, Justin Hartley.

Over the last 24 hours, Stause took to her Instagram story clad in a bikini, and showed us the renovation progress of a large closet at her home.  She closed the IG story withm “I’m gonna come out of it now,” to which several of her former DAYS castmates had fun with the ‘play on words’ response and shared some comments back to her.

So, what do you think of Chrishell entering into a relationship with G Flip? We wish them the best. Share your thoughts below.
