Colby Shows A Sensitive Side On This Week's All My Children! What Did You Think Of Brooke Newton's Performance?

Several weeks ago the revival of All My Children re-introduced the character of Colby Chandler, a part that on the ABC version had been recast quite a few times! But this time, it looks like the AMC casting director, Alison Goodman and the powers-that-be who preside over Pine Valley  got it right with Brooke Newton (Colby)!

In a relatively short amount of time, this scheming bitch on wheels version of Colby has slept with Pete (Rob Scott Wilson), slept with David (Vincent Irizarry) insinuated herself into the Chandler Media Gala, and is making poor Celia (Jordan Lane Price) feel awful about herself and her relationship with Pete, no matter what Pete says to Celia to try to smooth things over after sleeping with the hot to trot Chandler gal!

But on this week’s second episode of All My Children #44, Colby after hitting the hay with David, is hit with the news that her childhood friend Cassandra (Sal Stowers) is in bad shape, and she runs to the hospital to see her! Once there, Colby tries to cheer up the battered and pregnant Cass with a beauty make-over! But it is to no avail.  However, for the first time as viewers, we see Colby has a heart!  She loves her dear friend Cassandra, and wants to help her, even helping her friend get an abortion!

So we ask you, what did you think of the key scene this week? What do you think of Brooke Newton as the latest Colby Chandler? Would you give her thumbs up?  Share your comments below, and watch a clip from the Cassandra and Colby scene entitled, “Making the Pain”  after the jump!

I loved the softer side of Colby this week, and would love to see more of that. She can be a good person when she wants to be, and not a spoiled brat. I must say that Brook is a talented actress, and she’s showing that she can play what ever character comes her way.

It was the first show I saw of her that I didn’t want to push her out of a 10th floor building. She’s laying it on way too thick when she’s doing the bitchy shtick. This was way more understated and genuine.

Loved seeing the softer side of Colby, made her a more human and believable character! Brooke Newton did a wonderful job showing this softer side.

I thought both Brooke Newton and Sal Stowers did their best work yet in these scenes. While I’ve been enjoying campy Colby, she has been over the top, as has Cassandra with all the screaming and crying, and then in this episode they both calmed down and had a real, heartbreaking conversation. Kudos to both actresses, as well as the writers and directors!

Brooke is a very beautiful and talented young actress, and I think she’s doing an excellent job as Colby. She has breathed fresh, youthful life into this iconic show. I hope Brooke has a long run on AMC and that they don’t recast Colby again. She’s perfect for the role. I loved to see Colby’s tender side, which helped make her a more fully-developed and believable character, plus a good girl for a bit. Hopefully, there will be more of that to come. Overall, AMC has been terrific online. I’m very impressed with what Prospect Park has done. I’m so… Read more »

Brooke is doing a fabulous job as Colby! She does over-the-top bitchy SO well and now she is showing she can do softer scenes. Very reminiscent of when Colby first came on the scene as a teen. Nice job. I felt her and Sal had a good friend chemistry, it felt real.

I thought she did a good job of showing that even a b——- has a good side. I think she is doing a good job with the role, Lord knows it’s been played by at least six actresses that I can think of so Brooke Newton can pretty much make the character her own and I think she has the ability to do that.

Outstanding performance… and, so real! Colby shows there is true humanity in all of us. True friendship and shared past moments are priceless. Thanks for making my day… :o)

She plays both sides of Colby well. You need both for a well rounded character.

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.
