So we have question for AMC viewers, who do you think Dr. Anders will be paired with romantically? We think we know, but won’t spill the beans! And what do you think of another Colby to the canvas, when there have been so many previously? Will this Colby get the golden Chandler ticket?  Let us know your thoughts!

I’m glad to see AMC is back, I just hope they introduce new characters slowly & give viewers a chance to know who they are & like/hate them before they’re put on the front burner. As for re-casts, please – don’t just hire pretty faces – hire people who can act! I’ve loved every moment of what I’ve seen thus far and am looking forward to decades more of All My Children! Welcome back, we missed you!!!

She sort of resembles Natalie Hall, the previous Colby.

You’re right I think it might be the blond hair and blue eyes.

I am not use to the swearing on AMC & not so much on OLTL . It seems to happen more often on AMC.. Like today. Which I don’t think is necessary. It is mainly the young
actors doing all the swearing. There are so many other words they can use… Is it so necessary to swear ???? Again I am not use to it after watching AMC for a long time. That is my only complaint. I will still watch AMC .

It will take a little getting used to but honestly, have you walked the halls of a high school lately, or been behind a group of teens at the mall? This is the reality of how teens talk when their parents are not around. Not judging whether it’s right or wrong for teens to act that way, but the reality is that they do.

When you’re trying to reach a younger audience they are not going to be interested if they are not going to be depicted as how things really are for them in the real world.

I’m happy to see that Colby is coming back to AMC. Kind of wish that Natalie Hall was returning, but I am willing to give Brooke an honest chance. As for Jason, I don’t know much but I’m sure he’ll be great!

Casting for amc should be for more African american chars and some Asian american chars. Best casting news for soaps though is from downton abbey! It finally has a racial minority cast member portraying a singer. There really should be more racial minority cast members on downton abbey. It would be very realistic to have Indian chars on downton abbey.

Well, honestly, I have literally lost count on how many Colby Chandlers there have been – for a while there it seemed like every six months someone else was playing the role. So, I guess it is fine that a new actress is doing the role, at least it is a character we all (sort of) know.
On Friday’s re-cap show, they did say that more core characters were definitely returning – I hope this means Michael Knight is returning as Tad Martin….they need him. Without him, I’m not sure what Dixie is supposed to do – and the same goes for Zach, who has stated that Kendall left him (rather simplistically) – they need Kendall back. I’m sorry, I don’t mean for my comments to come across as complaints, but for me to give an honest overview I think more familiar faces need to return to Pine Valley.

And they have been mentioning him A LOT lately! I can’t wait to see Tad the Cad back in Pine Valley!!

Kelly Ripa Reveals How Her Son Chose NYU Due To The Consuelos Connection To Former Soap EP/ Director, Chris Goutman

Last week on an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, the former star of All My Children, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) told Ryan Seacrest how a chance meeting when her son, Michael was deciding where to go to college; between her, Michael, and Chris Goutman (Ex-Executive Producer As the World Turns and former director, All My Children) changed the course of Michael’s creative and academic path.

Turns out that Goutman is now working over at NYU’s Tisch School for the Arts as an assistant professor and academic director.

During their banter on the talk show, Kelly revealed that Goutman directed the screen-test that landed Mark Consuelos the role of Mateo on All My Children, and thus how Ripa met her real-live enduring lovematch.

Ripa explained that Michael was waiting for a sign as to which college to go to as he liked most of the places he saw.  Then came the sign as Ripa explained to Seacrest: “We’re walking down the hallway and I hear a voice I know say, ‘Consuelos!’ “He turns around and I see Chris Goutman, who was our director at All My Children … I worked with him for 11 years.”

Ripa says Chris then expressed to Michael: “You have to come here, because I am the reason you literally exist.”

Ripa is reportedly also working on a film for the class, as well.  Watch what Kelly shared below.
