Breaking news this afternoon via TV Line. Looks like just as All My Children is about to say farewell to network TV this Friday, comes word out of Prospect Park that it has, pending a final agreement with AFTRA, signed its first two stars to continue with the series with its  move to the web. And, they are … Cameron Mathison (Ryan) and Lindsay Hartley (Cara).

Here is the statement from Prospect Park: “Pending a final agreement with AFTRA, Prospect Park has confirmed that … Cameron Mathison (Ryan Lavery) and Lindsay Hartley (Dr. Cara Castillo Martin) have agreed to deals to join the company’s new production of All My Children.

This marks the first confirmation of cast members since Prospect Park began planning for the AMC production to live on the new online network beyond its final televised date on ABC this week.”

Prospect Park says it will announce the start date of AMC‘s new production in the coming weeks!

Congrats to CM and LH! 🙂 Now I need to hear that VI is onboard, so my wonderful David/Cara/Baby Dara saga continues! 🙂

I think that they are going to try and groom Lindsay to be the new leading lady of AMC, since it doesn’t seem like Susan Lucci will be joining the cast. I just have a feeling that’s what’s happening. She is a talented actress, but those are hard shoes to follow….and notice I did not say fill, cause no one can do that.

I’m glad they’ve gotten LH to sign – and will be VERY happy if VI does too.

Not so glad about CM staying on, though. To put it mildly. His character has been overplayed, over-exposed, and over-acted for about the past 10 years. And “Ryan”, along with the other members of the sextet of suckage and the Carey’s are a large part (due to Frons’ insistence that they be the focus) of AMC’s decline.

I wish CM the best, but I deeply wish that meant we’d never have to see or hear Ryan Lavery ever again.

Hope more actors sign on but the last few years — poor writing and moving from NYC to LA — have been hard on them.

Happy about CM & LH. Hope they sign the rest. Especialy MK & CM. And of course WW, AM, etc. Maybe SL will change her mind. From what I read in her book, I’m surprised she hasn’t signed. Maybe that will change.

Mixed news. Glad some marquee stars are on board. As much as I like AMC, and VI, I could do without more of the David story. I will appreciate the “resurrection” plot line as a means to end a storied broadcast run for a fave serial, but for a relaunch, I would prefer a new start with Pine Valley citizens off the canvas. That way, we get history to link old and new, and focus on family and relationships. I tend to tune out when stories step far beyond the realm of reality, so my emotions at seeing AMC end… Read more »

I agree with you. At this point, there are a lot of characters that I wouldn’t be sad to see go….. Starting with Marissa & Bianca. I can’t for the life of me, understand why AMC will not get rid of the Marissa character. I know that the last actress wasn’t that popular, but I don’t think this one is either….actually, I don’t think it has anything to do with the actresses…it’s just the whole character. And I don’t like or agree with how suddenly she and Bianca are an overnight item. I would love to see Colby, Liza, JR… Read more »

This is good i hope they put out good writing and good acting. Would be nice to see some fact based stories that are true but hard to believe … Lindsey hartley is a good actress and i’ve grown fond of her character. I hope that opal lives on too.

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

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.
