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!

They need Michael and a lot more! They are supposed to start taping shortly and have NONE of the lead actors, Susan, Walt, Alisha, Cameron, David C.. what are they doing, nobody is getting signed, many like Walt havent even been contacted! Whats going on, Prospect????????

Bring back Cady and Michael! Tad and Dixie – together forever!

Good news : )

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!

I just adored Krystal….. what a transformation…. from good girl innocent Macy… to smelling salt femme fetale…. Krystal….. She gew in to her womanhood…. course she could have dallianced more with that hot dr. david hayward…. loved her twin daughters….

especially, now with Marissa, wed to Bianca! Krystal is a must have on the nuAMC.

Yes, hopefully they will bring back Marissa and Bianca. If they do, I hope it’s the same actors.

Thrilled to hear that Cady has signed on for the AMC reboot, and would LOVE to see Michael E. Knight return as well. I agree with Kristin above – Tad and Dixe together forever, and hopefully on our computer screens soon!!!

IF Dixie returns – I agree that it wouldn’t be the same without Tad

This is great news!!! Thanks for the scoop!! We definitely need some TnD so now where is the T? 🙂

Hoping MEK shows up shortly!

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?

Praise the soap gods if Cady is on board! Her and MEK sign on, I’m there. My T&D back on my screen, oh that will be a happy day. 🙂

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 hoping to see Chrishell Stause & Ricky back and that sweetie Stephanie Gatschet. Thorston Kaye & Alicia please come back home.

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 ..

Yay!!!

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 the show with familiar faces and then as momentum builds they can gradually add in new additions to Pine Valley but it would be nice to have the Martins and the Chandlers and the Kane women in place.

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).

would love Tad and Dixie back, they are awesome!

YAY! I was hoping Cady would sign on for the online version. Dixie really was great her last return, and need more years of her being alive on my screen! Bring Tad with you!

Cady McClain & Michael E. Knight would make me so happy. Love Tad & Dixie!

Great news, I’d love Dixie to be back for good! And Tad should be with her. And let’s face it AMC need more vets like OLTL has!

Please bring back Michael Knight!! I have watched Tad and Dixie since I was a young teenager and love them!!!

YES PLEASE!!! Together Forever

Sure hope that both Cady and Michael will sign and bring us Tad and Dixie again.

Michael … we need you. Tad without Dixie ?????

I am so excited she is coming back! Now Tad must come back!!! He was my favorite actor on the show, so so funny! Please bring back Tad & Dixey!

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.

Love Tad & Dixie. Need Tad and Dixie. Need Cady! Need MEK!

Billy Miller Memorial Scholarship Endowment Created at His Alma Mater to Help Others ‘Realize Their Dreams’

Two months since three-time Daytime Emmy-winning actor, Billy Miller passed away, the beloved All My Children (ex-Richie), General Hospital (ex-Jason/Drew) and The Young and the Restless (ex-Billy) star, will now have a permanent scholarship endowment in his honor at the University of Texas at Austin which was Miller’s alma mater.

Through the scholarship, it will be able to help radio/television and film undergraduate students with financial need. Billy’s family and friends have established this permanent scholarship in his memory, naming it the William Jon Miller II “Billy Miller” Memorial Scholarship. They hope the endowment will be a legacy to his life and love of acting.

Before becoming soap-famous, Billy graduated from the the university’s department of Radio-Television-Film (RTF) at the Moody College of Communication. On its official website, they shared the news of this special memorial scholarship and how Miller died at the age of 43 after surrendering his life to bipolar depression, which he struggled with his whole life.

Megan Hubbell, Billy’s sister, expressed, “We want something positive to be held in his name in perpetuity through the University he loved. He would be honored to know that even in death, he can help someone else realize their dreams.”

She added how she hoped her immensely talented brother will be remembered: “I hope BJ (as Billy was known by to his friends and family) is remembered for the kind-hearted, silly, funny, goofy, generous, beautiful soul that he was His megawatt smile, deep belly laugh and gorgeous mug were gifts on screen, but his true self was a bright light that will be carried with us forever.”

According to Miller’s family, Billy had his picks of schools and UT was his first choice. When he first came to the university, Billy started in the zoology program before switching to radio-television-film, where he felt he belonged. Miller was one of just 20 students at the time accepted into the department’s prestigious production-sequence program.

“BJ was extremely proud to be a Texas Longhorn and always remembered his time there fondly,” Hubbell said. “The time he spent at UT allowed him the space to explore who he wanted to be and what he wanted to accomplish.”

In honoring her brother’s work and strength to persevere in the often heartbreaking world of entertainment, Megan related: “I always admired the guts it took to go after a dream in Hollywood that so many people tried to discourage. He heard, ‘You’ll never make it’ more times than I care to count, but he used those comments as fuel and said, ‘Watch me.’”

Miller’s roles went far beyond those on daytime soap operas, as throughout his career he played major parts in primetime’s Suits, Ray Donovan and Castle to name but a few.

In his death, Billy’s family is encouraging people to take stock of their own mental health. “BJ would want anyone struggling with intrusive thoughts to seek professional help,” Hubbell said. “Do not suffer in silence or try to muscle through on your own. Mental health is vitally important and shouldn’t be spoken about in silos behind closed doors but rather in open forums with open arms. Shame has no place in the discussion to seek help.”

As is tradition with “Live’s Halloween” episodes, they are always filled with costume and pop culture moments and special guest surprises.
