While thus far the cast list has been small for Prospect Park’s online version of All My Children, especially with the returnees from the ABC version of the iconic series, there is some very encouraging news today from ABC Soaps In Depth.

SID is hearing from multiple sources that fan favorite Cady McClain is set to reprise her role of Dixie in the online reboot.  Given that Prospect Park has yet to announce additional names to the cast, many feel an announcement may be imminent.

Are you excited about Cady being part of the new All My Children? Would you like Michael E. Knight to come on board, so the duo could continue to tell the love story of Tad and Dixie?  Let us know your thoughts!

I’m excited but need Michael too, I’m hoping more actors have signed on and we just haven’t been told yet, Last I heard Walt WIlley hasn’t been contacted or Bobbie Eakes, Sarah and Christine.

I agree, Jewell. I can’t understand why Walt and Bobbie haven’t been contacted! They have been major players on AMC for years. Walt even posted that he’d be happy to bring Jackson back. I don’t get it!

Since LH, Cara Castillo will be returning Tad should be with her.
He does love her and those two had chem and Tad was soooo alive when they were together, Tad was renewed while with Cara, an awesome couple..

Tad and Dixie were worn out, they are not good together any-longer, but Tad and Cara WOW!! they are great together!! Loved Tad with Cara!!

I couldn’t believe it…. Tad and Cara….. SIZZLED….

we both know… they were split to accommadate Dixie….

I was so happy Cara at the very least ended up with Dr. David… and was Pregnant… Tears…. even for Dr. David….. for all the drama of his “demons”… watching him with Marissa and Krystal…. and hopefully… now, with Cara….

if Cara was to triangle with Tad again…. and Dr. David….. that would make for excitement…. and notwithstanding… Dixie.

Call me confused but we found out in 2009 (when we found out that Trevor was not his) that Dr. D couldn’t bear children. Whose baby is Cara really carrying?

Yes, Yes, Yes, Tad and Dixie together again. What could be any better. Father Clarence told me that Tad and Dixie is AMC’s favorite couple. I know he is right. He always is you know. He told me if I were patient, AMC would return. I left my trust in him and now look. Ta Da. All our friends and family are returning to Pine Valley. I am so excited, I hope I don’t pee my pants.

I’m wondering if the lead actors haven’t been contacted or if they have been sworn to secrecy? Maybe AMC for the most part is going to be a BIG surprise. Didn’t Jennifer Bassey aka Marian Colby Chandler hint at a big surprise a few weeks ago someone said in a tweet but she couldn’t say what it was? So it makes me wonder??

SL/Erica and MK/Tad did not want to go on with PP, online, I doubt they will change their minds..
No matter if we’d like them back some simply do not want to go on-line and now it seems they have retired from the soap scene.. .

time will tell ..

Well it would be great if she could return as Dixie, to help give advice to the “new” JR Chandler [whomever he may be] – I have not heard a word about Michael Knight returning as Tad Martin, maybe they will recast Tad – there have been 4 Tad Martins through the years but of course the role is most remembered as being portrayed by Michael Knight. Maybe actors are holding out for, how can I phrase it nicely, more lucrative offers than what is currently being put on the table. At any rate, they need to at least launch… Read more »

Yes, love Cady. Was always a fan of hers. It would be fantastic to have Michael E. Knight back too. He adds the humor to the show. I’m quite excited about this going online. Will be wonderful to have old cast and some new. Looking forward to seeing AMC again (maybe with a new twist).

BRING BACK TAD and DIXIE. Michael Knight should come back for the fans who have always loved him and his superior acting abilities. There isn’t anyone better for a romantic and/or comedic role. Please consider coming to Online AMC!!

Michael isn’t returning at this point. Something about scheduling conflicts and he can’t do it right now. Vincent, Darnell, Debbie, Thorsten and Cady are the only members of the main original cast signed on. Everyone else is really supporting cast. They’re supposedly trying to play to a younger audience, but if they don’t get more familiar faces to play the characters we love, the reboot isn’t going to work.

All My Children Alum Ben Jörgensen Reportedly Dead At 51

According to his former All My Children castmate, Brian Gaskill. there is sad news in the soap world today.  Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin on All My Children and Chris on As the World Turns passed away on Tuesday at the age of 51, apparently via suicide, although unconfirmed as to his cause of death.

Gaskill, who played Bobby Warner while in Pine Valley shared via his Instagram:  “Sad news to report. Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin Sheffield on All My Children has past away at 51 years old.  My understanding is it was suicide.  I have heard he suffered from Bipolar disorder but as I have not spoke to him in years I do not know all the details. I just want to remember the good times we had on the set of All My Children 24 years ago. He was a good guy and had the courage to play a gay teenager on tv back when it was nowhere near as common to have representation as it is today. He was part of an award winning storyline…but mostly we just had some good times back then…my condolences go out to his friends and family. Please everybody hang in there and reach out for help if you need it. ”

Since the time of Brian’s posting, friends, colleagues and fans have been posting tributes and condolences on the actor’s Facebook page.  You can view that here.

 

In this heartbreaking photo below from Steven Bergman, during his time on As the World Turns, Ben is pictured with the late Nathaniel Marston, as well as Jaime Nicole Dudney and Terri Conn.

On All My Children, Ben was part of the important social issue storyline brought into the ABC legacy soap opera by the iconic Agnes Nixon, who was always trying to move the needle forward in daytime, as the character of Kevin was a gay high school student facing bullying, ridicule and discrimination for his sexuality.

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.
