OK so what is up with the possibility of David Canary and Jennifer Bassey joining the Prospect Park’s All My Children?  Will Stuart and Marion and of course, Adam, be part of the canvas?

Well in a tweet a few hours ago from fan favorite Jennifer Bassey (Marion Colby Chandler) looks like something IS on the horizon when she stated: “News. there will be some wonderful surprises in the next few months on AMC.  That’s all I can say right now. Sworn to secrecy. xxxx J”

This came on the heels of some prior tweets in which Bassey originally revealed that she and Marion were not coming back to Pine Valley, and that was then followed with a new tweet saying she was indeed meeting with the the new producer of AMC to find out what is going on!

So would you be happy to see Marion back in Pine Valley?  Do you think David Canary could be dropping in too?  Let us know your thoughts!

I would love to see Jennifer Bassey, but would be even happier if David Canary returned. IMO he would be the biggest asset to the canvas!

Well, I would have to add Michael E. Knight would be up there with David Canary on my “must-have” list. Can’t forget Tad. He’s been my favorite since I started watching AMC.

At the end. The Chandlers and the Martins had but 2 or so left to carry on..
The core families were on the endangered species list ..
I wonder if and how they could be rebuilt..

Marian, Adam, Stuart, Dixie, and Tad all need to come back to AMC!

Yes, but don’t bring back Jamie Luner as Liza!!!! Please try and bring back the one and only Marcy Walker. She is the one and only Liza in my book. And the chemistry that she had with Tad, Dixie, Marion and Adam was unbeatable.

Yeah but it seems Marcy is retired from acting, she’s big into her religion, I believe Christian. Maybe a recast Liza would help. People have mentioned Beth Chamberlain that played Beth on Guiding Light and I think she could be good. She definitely has the chops.

You know Blake, they should have given that role to Beth Ehlers when she came on AMC….she had good chemistry with Tad, but they blew her storyline to pieces and wasted her talent. And I’m from the school that on some characters, just don’t recast because it won’t work. Liza was played to a T by Marcy, so I just don’t think they should recast it.

The show would be boring without David and Stuart. Hope they bring him back, if they do, then I might think of watching again. And don’t forget Brook.

I did not think that David Canary wanted to return ~ but then again what would Pine Valley be without Adam Chandler – but we have to realize that these are NEW shows, a new inception of AMC – they will be introducing new characters I’m sure and some fans will like it and some may not – the soaps are being launched into unchartered waters and just how they will float is anybody’s guess (how’s that for poetry) ~

I hope we get to watch Jennifer Bassey…. Marion is GOLD.

At the “ending” of AMC….. it was the scenes with Marion and Stewart (coming back to life) that had me sobbing…. my favorite “ending” off…..

I’d like to salute and Commemorate the superlative…. ubber talent… Marcy Walker…. Liza….. Mother and Daughter ran with the gamut of emotions…. They transcended.

Marion and Stewarts’ loving relationship beamed….

Ms. Bassey is a wonderful actress and in the final months showed her comedy chops as well! Hope we will be seeing her!

I believe that means that David Canary will be on board. Julia Barr is rumored to be returning also, so with both of his leading ladies on board – he can’t be far behind. Also noticed we haven’t heard from Michael Knight or Susan Lucci yet.

I do understand this is a reboot and not all characters will be returned…but to start, you really must have Tad and Erica..

Donna Lawson

David Canary is just the best……..It won’t be the same if he doesn’t return. I love Tad……he needs to be with a woman that will love like he does. Hope Erica can get out of the contract she has and also that Kendall and Ryan will return.

I am sick and tired of cooking shows & eating shows like ‘The Taste”. Give me a break with that one. Yes all these cooking shows should be directed to the Food Network where they belong. Never watched one ever and never will. They
don’t interest me in the least. I rather go to my cooking book not these cooking
shows!

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.

AMC Alum Sarah Michelle Gellar Reflecting on Her Time on Soaps: “Anything I Can Do to Continue the Legacy I’m Very Proud Of”

Daytime fans knew of Sarah Michelle Gellar her way before her Buffy the Vampire Slayer days, when she stepped on to the small screen as Erica’s (Susan Lucci) troubled daughter Kendall Hart on ABC’s All My Children. 

Gellar played the role from 1993 to 1995, and made a brief return in 2011 as the show came to its conclusion on ABC. Additionally, Sarah won a Daytime Emmy for her performance in the Outstanding Younger Actress category in 1995.

Sarah has partnered with Lysol for their brand’s Disinfecting Wipes “Buy One, Donate One” program. where now through September 26, whenever a pack of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes is purchased, another pack will automatically be donated to an under-resourced school through the Kids In Need Foundation.

The program is aimed to help curb the spread of illness-causing germs in schools this back-to-school season, a total of up to 16 million packs of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes will be donated to Title I schools across the country.

The program is the latest component of Lysol’s HERE for Healthy Schools initiative. Started in 2019 with the mission to help curb the spread of preventable illness and to help kids miss less school so they are able to learn, grow and thrive, HERE for Healthy Schools has provided educational materials for students and Lysol disinfecting supplies for educators and administrators to more than 49,000 schools across the country. This year, HERE for Healthy Schools is focused on helping to protect children, educators and parents as they make their big return to in-person learning in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking with TV Insider on the partnership, Gellar recalled her time on the soaps and how it changed her career and outlook, noting: “it was the training ground for the rest of my career.”

She went on to say: “I made incredible friends at that time and I learned incredible work habits, and soap operas are an intense amount of work, and I’m incredibly grateful for that time and the people that I met.  We live in a world now where my kids don’t even really know what a soap opera is, so anything I can do to continue the legacy I’m very proud of.”

So, do you remember Sarah’s time on AMC? What do you think of her thoughts on her time on the soaps? Comment below.
