On All My Children, Adam Chandler (David Canary) had an on again and off again love affair and relationship with Brooke English (Julia Barr).  Meanwhile, Stuart Chandler (David Canary) fell madly in love with the often times infuriating Marian Colby (Jennifer Bassey)

Now the two women who played many scenes and spent much time with the late David Canary have come forward, and shared statements on the passing of this icon. Canary died back on November 16th, but news of his death made headlines just a few days ago prior to the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

Daytime Emmy winner, Julia Barr told SoapSheKnows: “David Canary was my TV soul mate! I could not have asked for anything more in an actor or a fellow human being. He was the essence of kindness, a gentleman and my years of playing ‘Brooke’ to his ‘Adam’ were a joy! We were all blessed to have him in our lives.”

Jennifer Bassey tweeted her sentiments: “The best of the best is gone. David Canary, great actor, terrific gentleman, kind, considerate and funny. I will always miss him. So sad. ” 

So, what did you think of Julia and Jennifer’s posts on the death of David Canary?  Did you want Adam to end up with Brooke, and Stuart with Marian? Who do you feel was Canary’s best all-time love interest on AMC?  Comment below!

Julia Barr’s Brooke was the perfect complement to Adam. Even when the character was brought on for Erica, I wanted him to be paired with Brooke. While I loved Marian with Stuart, Stuart’s love affair with Cindy was magical and groundbreaking on a number of levels.

Adam was best with Liza, Brooke, and Krystal. He also had great chemistry with Kate Collin’s Natalie and Janet. Stuart with Marian of course. I always hoped for a Winifred romance. If not with Adam, maybe Caleb Cooney.

Each couple complemented each other and David Canary did a terrific job playing Adam/Stuart with Julia Barr/ Jennifer Bassey as the wife. How lucky that they got to work with him and the audience got to know such a wonderful man.

Know something funny? When I first glanced at this article I thought ‘David Canary was NOT with Marion Colby! He was with Brooke and the guy who played Stuart was with Marion!’
Silly me! That’s how much he still has me convinced that they were two different people playing those roles!
Such a tremendous actor! RIP.

I was doing the same thing….It’s such a shame that the guy who played Adam is no longer with us, but at least we have that guy who played Stuart. If only he knew how often that happened in mind, he’d either be flattered or think I was an idiot. When David Canary performed, he took you deep in the characters he acted, and I could be so angry at Adam one minute, and then allow myself to fall for his explanation just as the damsel in distress he was taunting at the time did. A loss for his fans,… Read more »

It is no surprise that these great ladies of AMC praised Canary. He was such an outstanding actor. I was always impressed by his talent. I had read articles that Mr. Canary was great support behind the scenes.

It is hard to believe that he is gone.

My heart goes out to his family as I understand he had dementia. it is a brutal disease for all To watch the person you love and care for slowly fade away from you

Love all of these actors. All My Children and David Canary will be missed forever. Brooke was my favorite character on the show.

Nice to hear from Julia Barr, no doubt.

Also, nice to see Jennifer Bassey making pubic statements that show her in a good light, unlike that airline fiasco from a couple of years ago…

As a long time fan of All My Children and co-founder of the Julia Barr fan group The Barr Association, I have always loved Brooke English. I thought she was wonderful with all of her co-stars, but David Canary was an exceptional actor and Adam Chandler an exceptional character. I think David and Julia brought out the best in each other as actors and that their relationship on screen was wonderful. I miss seeing them both on my screen and my thoughts and prayers are with David Canary’s family.

Brooke was the love of Adam’s life. David Canary and Julia Barr had amazing chemistry.
Marion and Stuart were sweet. He made her a better person.

Julia Barr is a class act and just from watching David and Julia on screen as Adam and Brooke , you could see firsthand the mutual respect and love they had for one another .. Brilliant actors, and compelling characters they portrayed . One of the best working relationships and on air chemistry they shared for years . I will miss that .

It’s so funny. When I read he died, I expected to read what Julia Barr had to say. He did so well playing two totally different people that the thought that Jennifer Bassey also played his wife (as Stuart) did not cross my mind. He was a brilliant actor and I’m so glad to read he was also a wonderful human being. That this scourge, Alzheimer’s took him makes his passing all the more tragic.

As Stuart he seemed much more fitted with Marian but I am torn because as Adamhe was too Julie Barr was also a great fit too!

Yes, I know I am no help. lol

Without a doubt, his most beautiful relationship was with Cindy. The aids storyline brought so much dimension into the relationship, and it allowed David as Stuart, to show a tenderness that he could never have shown as Adam. Although it was short lived and very tragic, it was also some of the most moving television I have ever seen on daytime. His simple truth, honesty, innocence and ability to open his heart no matter how much hurt he would have to bear from it, is why Stuart was so beloved. Seeing him become a father to Scott, and the relationship… Read more »

Julia Barr’s Brooke English was hands down the love of Adam Chandler’s life. I spent 25 years rooting for Brooke and Adam and was thrilled by their 2010 reunion. Nobody else but Brooke could bring out the best in Adam and also put him in his place. Julia Barr and David Canary had amazing chemistry, and Brooke and Adam will always be my all-time favorite couple. Stuart had a wonderful love with Cindy, but I do think Marian was a great complement to him, too.

Having been fortunate to meet, David, found him handsome, a naturally sweet man. He evoked an aire and we were just drawn to him. Loved him on Bonanza as well. The Gentleman of gentlemen.

Mark Consuelos on the All My Children Primetime Reboot: “I Know They’re Going to Bring Back Some Fan Favorites”

On Friday, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) was a guest on the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, where he shared his excitement and some insight into the upcoming All My Children primetime reboot, Pine Valley, in development at ABC..

As previously reported, Mark and his wife Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) are two of the executive producers on the project.

Consuelos shared on the reboot:All My Children was such a big part of my life and my wife’s life. And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

You can watch a portion of Mark’s virtual visit on The Talk below.

Then let us know, which AMC characters do you want to see back and on the primetime series, Pine Valley?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Will AMC Favorite Josh Duhamel Replace Armie Hammer in JLo’s Film, ‘Shotgun Wedding’?

After a controversial few weeks, which saw Armie Hammer exit his leading role opposite Jennifer Lopez in Liongate’s upcoming romantic-comedy/adventure film Shotgun Wedding, it appears the motion picture has found its replacement if the ink is signed.

Former All My Children and Daytime Emmy winner Josh Duhamel (Ex-Leo) has been picked as Hammer’s replacement.

The film tells the story of a couple that gathers their families for a destination wedding even as they get cold feet. If that wasn’t enough, the entire party then gets taken hostage.

Lopez and Hammer were headed for the film shoot in the Dominican Republic when salacious DM’s rumored to be attributed to  Hammer came to light on social media and derailed the films for now.  However, if Duhamel signs on to the film, they could can retain its start date in February

Hammer had responded to the allegations against him and the DM’s by sharing: “I’m not responding to these bullshit claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,”

A Lionsgate spokesperson  also responded to Hammer and his exit sharing: “Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film, and we support him in his decision.”

The Hollywood Reporter first broke the casting news update.

So what do you think of Duhamel as Hammer’s replacement to play opposite JLO? Comment below.
