Months of wondering who was going to fill the role of Marissa Chandler since All My Children’s decision to let-go of Brittany Allen has come to an end.  Word from the AMC show spokesperson today is that the role has been recast with former As the World Turns star Sarah Glendening who played Lucy on the now defunct CBS soap.

Sarah is on contract and will debut on air on the December 20th episode in the role of Marissa, while Brittany Allen’s last airdate will be December 17th.    So what do you think of the casting choice for Marissa?  Let us know.

Marrissa on AMC had to be changed as the role needed an actress with more pizzazz. GOOD LUCK SARAH!

Brittany was doing quite a good job. She also has an exotic look.Sarah hasn’t a memorable look. Too soon to asses how talented she is. I will misss Brittany.

How about just kill the Marissa character off ? It’s not like she would be missed ! I mean Babe was the only Carrey who was popular and also the most hated of the Carreys, yet her death was cheered by fans. Marissa is an useless character created by an incompetent HW who was fired last year for his poor job.

I do NOT like the recast! The first girl they chose was the best Marissa. She was perfect for the part. I have recently found myself not watching taped episodes of AMC.

WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.

It’s always great to see these veteran performers, but Strahan & Sara is trying to capture the soap viewers to put eyeballs on their show by bringing in talent from the show that sadly and wrongly went off the air.

Watch the clips below from the All My Children reunion below.  Then, let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below.
