Cameron Mathison Tweets That He Hopes To Be Part Of The Revival Of All My Children … Schedule Permitting!

Courtesy: Steven Bergman

Cameron Mathison took to Twitter to respond to fans and followers who were asking him, if he would indeed be part of the All My Children reboot via Prospect Park!  Mathison played Ryan Lavery from 1998 to 2011 until the series concluded on ABC Daytime.

As with many other performers from the original casts of AMC and OLTL, availability at this time could be an issue as actors are busy and committed to other projects.

However, Mathison tweeted the following:  “I’m thrilled for All My Children & OLTL fans that the shows seem to b making a comeback online. Nice job guys:) 4 those asking, I’m not sure if I’ll be part of the new AMC. I’m lucky to be working these days, so I’m working on the scheduling:) Hope so!”

So, do you hope Cameron can sign on to be with the reboot of AMC? Let us know!

I think it would be good for AMC & the fans, but…please, Ryan Lavery in small doses.

LoL have to agree with that comment – a little of him goes a long way. To be honest, at times the show dragged here and there with the endless triangle of Ryan, Greenlee and Kendall. The show was great back in the days of Kate Collins as Natalie and her crazy “twin” sister Janet – of course that was back in the 90’s but they really really need to get strong actors like Kate Collins and others of her caliber to get the show on track. They cannot just cast pretty faces and center it around those people, we… Read more »

The character of Ryan Lavery – mainly the overexposure of this character was one of the reasons AMC declined in quality so badly these last 10 years.

I wish him continued success – somewhere OTHER than AMC.

So agree with you. The character of Ryan Lavery only worked when Gillian was alive and still on the show….after they wrote her off, he bounced around from woman to woman, ruining each female character he came in contact with. Annie was normal until she got mixed up with Ryan….

Ryan and Zak were the only 2 worth watching on AMC. How do you know Annie was normal – she was a new character. I hope Erica is NOT coming back. Tired of Greenlee coming and going – stay gone too! Give Jack a better part with some backbone – tired of him being Erica’s doormat! Keep Kendall and Bianca. Tad is good. Krystal was good, but they changed her personality – she was great when she first came on.

@ Katie, because when she came on she was a single parent, taking care of her daughter, and she was stable. Ryan pursued her, and soon after she got mixed up with Ryan, the writers turned her into this looney cartoon character. Just like they did with Greenlee when she was played by the other actress, Sabine Sigh she went nuts because of Ryan, when she came back into town and tried to get back with him….which led to that whole horrible story of kidnapping Spike and him ending up deaf from the car accident. Or how Madison North got… Read more »

I hope Cameron can fit AMC into his schedule. I am sure scheduling/rounding up all of the original actors might be the toughest hurdle, but I trust it will all work out. I am happy to see that so many were able to find work, which is most important, but I am hopeful many will be able to be involved in AMC and OLTL again!!!

I can do without Ryan Lavery showing back up into Pine Valley…..The last few years of AMC were ruined by too much exposure of Ryan Lavery and his buffoonery.

Torrey, agree, and he is the reason I stopped watching AMC. He is nauseating.

One of my least favorites, and so many have signed on, but not him. Is he fishing? If so, small doses of him would be in order.

I am not sure what Prospect Park is trying to do. First, I hear they are trying to get the younger crowd well these actors are all over 40 if not 50 in some cases other than Lindsay and Jordi. Nothing agains tAngie and Jesse but both actors are over 50 it seems with limited budget young african americans would be better suited. Susan Lucci is needed for continuity at the very least and she was or is AMC. Even a limited role she atleast helps the show gets PR and is a big part of the branding of AMC.… Read more »

Would love it if he can do the reboot. Ryan was one of my favorites. If they can’t get more of the original cast who played central characters to sign on, the reboot probably won’t last. So far they have Dixie but no Tad, Zach but no Kendal, David, Jesse and Angie. Erica and Adam are recurring, which is at least something. JR is a recast and the other cast members signed on, honestly played background characters.

Eva LaRue Reveals COVID-19 Diagnosis

During former All My Children, B&B and GH star, Jacob Young’s podcast, Real Conversations with Jacob Young, he welcomed his good friend and former Pine Valley cast mate, Eva LaRue (Ex-Maria, AMC, and Celeste, Y&R).

At the very top of the episode, LaRue revealed she and her daughter Kaya tested positive for Covid-19.  She shared, “We thought we had dodged a bullet, but sure enough, on New Year’s Eve, we both tested positive.”

“Oddly enough,” she goes on to say, “I really feel like we’ve been so sick of being scared to death of the invisible monster underneath the bed all last year, always looking over our shoulders.”  Eva added, “Nobody knows which one they are. Are they someone who’s going to survive it or succumb to it? Or have residual effects? All we can do is pray for the best.”

 

However, LaRue has been trying alternative methods of helping her with Covid-19 via IV treatments.  “I’ve got this amazing integrative doctor who I’ve been working with for a long time, and I know a lot of people are like, ‘No, we only do Western medicine,’ and that’s fine, I love Western medicine… but integrated medicine and Western medicine have to go hand in hand, in my opinion. Because, I just feel like, we need to open our minds to what is new and what is out there.”   So because of that, Eva has chosen to receive these treatments to hopefully starve off any long term effects of Covid.

In addition, Eva told Young she has hopes for the new primetime All My Children reboot that is in the works:  “I have my fingers crossed that they’ll be doing something with this new Pine Valley show.”   Remember, the Santos family and the Kanes are said to be the epicenter of the revival, so perhaps LaRue will be a guest-star on it, since she is also close friends with two of the EP’s, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC)!

Send your well-wishes to Eva and her daughter, Kaya and let us know would you love to see LaRue on the ‘Pine Valley’ primetime reboot?  Comment below.

All My Children Primetime Reboot “Pine Valley” in the Works at ABC from Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos and Andrew Stearn

Huge news that could bring back a new updated version of daytime’s All My Children to primetime!

ABC is eyeing a revival of Agnes Nixon’s long-running beloved series that ran for 41 years on the network and then saw an online reboot from Prospect Park that lasted only one season.

According to Deadline, former AMC stars Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo) will executive produce along with Andrew Stearn and Agnes Nixon’s son, Robert Nixon.

 

The series is currently in the early stages of development, but what has been revealed is: the reboot will be written/executive produced by Leo Richardson (Katy Keene, Star), and it will center on a young journalist with a secret agenda who comes to expose the dark and murderous history of a town named Pine Valley only to become entangled in a feud between the Kane and Santos families. The series explores all the secrets that come with the Kane and Santos family names.

In the new incarnation, Pine Valley, will feature a new generation of characters and some old favorites.  As of this moment, no original cast members have deals, but the plan would be to have them make appearances, plus Ripa and Consuelos could also make a cameo.  Of course, many are already pondering if Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) might actually be a mainstay on the new primetime series; since the Kanes are one of the core families in the reboot.

Pine Valley plans to continue the original series’ tradition of tackling difficult social issues of our time and being inclusive, which the show was known for under the iconic Agnes Nixon’s storytelling.

Of note is that Stearn is also a lifelong fan of AMC and has been the driving force behind the reboot.  In fact when he was deciding between ABC Signature and one other studio for an overall deal, he chose ABC Signature because it was going to allow him to pursue his dream of rebooting All My Children.  It was then he started tracking down the rights to the soap.  As soap fans know, the rights to AMC reverted back to ABC after Prospect Park’s online version fell apart.

Later, after meeting with a number of writers to helm Pine Valley, Stearn went with Richardson, who had worked on the British soap EastEnders in his native Britain. Stearn also got on board the estate of Agnes Nixon, with son Robert Nixon joining the project as an executive producer.

So what do you think of “Pine Valley”, the All My Children primetime reboot being in development?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
