Edge of Night and All My Children favorite, Larkin Malloy is the next big name soap star to join the cast of Tainted Dreams in the role of “Henry Steinman,” a director of “Painted Dreams,” (Tainted Dreams’ soap within the soap.)

According to executive producer, Sonia Blangiardo, “‘Henry Steinman’ is the most politically incorrect director in the history of Daytime…truly the ‘Archie Bunker’ of the soap genre. Whatever crosses ‘Henry’s’ mind comes out of his mouth…in the most inappropriate way possible,” and Blangiardo grins, “Before you ask, yes, Larkin and I may have known a real-life director who might allegedly fit this description.”

Tainted Dreams follows senior producer of the show “Painted Dreams,” Angelica (Alicia Minshew, All My Children) as she navigates the craziness of running a daily soap opera. Blangiardo promises, “Tainted Dreams proves the drama behind the drama is the real drama.”

Malloy joins what Blangiardo has begun to refer to as her “Dream team” which includes Alicia Minshew (All My Children), Terri Ivens (All My Children), Grant Aleksander (Guiding Light), Kelley Menighan Hensley (As the World Turns), Walt Willey (All My Children), Natalia Livingston (General Hospital), Marnie Schulenburg (As the World Turns), Michael Lowry (All My Children), Austin Peck (Days of our Lives), Colleen Zenk (As the World Turns), Dina Manzo (Dina’s Party and Real Housewives of New Jersey), Anthony Wilkinson (My Big Gay Italian Wedding and the new My Big Gay Italian Funeral), Lisa Marie Varon (IMPACT WRESTLING) and “Mr. PEC-Tacular” Jessie Godderz (IMPACT WRESTLING and Big Brother).   The series is set to begin filming in and around New York City on July 29th.

Malloy, who is one of NYC’s most successful and sought after acting teachers and private coaches, has played a variety of soap roles including:  “Dr. Weston,” As the World Turns (2002); “Travis Montgomery,” All My Children (1987-1992, 1997, 1998, 2001); “Clay Alden,” Loving (1992); “Kyle Sampson,” Guiding Light (1984-1987); Search for Tomorrow (appeared in final episode); and the dual roles of “Schuyler Whitney” and “Jefferson Brown,” The Edge of Night (1980-1984).

Kelly Ripa Reveals How Her Son Chose NYU Due To The Consuelos Connection To Former Soap EP/ Director, Chris Goutman

Last week on an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, the former star of All My Children, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) told Ryan Seacrest how a chance meeting when her son, Michael was deciding where to go to college; between her, Michael, and Chris Goutman (Ex-Executive Producer As the World Turns and former director, All My Children) changed the course of Michael’s creative and academic path.

Turns out that Goutman is now working over at NYU’s Tisch School for the Arts as an assistant professor and academic director.

During their banter on the talk show, Kelly revealed that Goutman directed the screen-test that landed Mark Consuelos the role of Mateo on All My Children, and thus how Ripa met her real-live enduring lovematch.

Ripa explained that Michael was waiting for a sign as to which college to go to as he liked most of the places he saw.  Then came the sign as Ripa explained to Seacrest: “We’re walking down the hallway and I hear a voice I know say, ‘Consuelos!’ “He turns around and I see Chris Goutman, who was our director at All My Children … I worked with him for 11 years.”

Ripa says Chris then expressed to Michael: “You have to come here, because I am the reason you literally exist.”

Ripa is reportedly also working on a film for the class, as well.  Watch what Kelly shared below.

Y&R, AMC and GL Alum, Jeff Branson Featured In New AppleTV+ Drama, ‘For All Mankind’

Daytime Emmy winner, Jeff Branson is featured in a new drama coming your way on the new AppleTV+ platform.  Branson takes on the role of famous astronaut Neil Armstrong in For All Mankind.

At the epicenter of the story is NASA and the Soviet space program as they square off in the space race of the 1970s.  But this has a twist, America has lost the race and tensions boil over between the two nations.

The main focus in the series is the lives of the astronauts and the personal and professional relationships they encounter. For All Mankind presents an aspirational world where NASA and the space program remained a priority and a focal point of our hopes and dreams.

Branson is fondly remembered in soapland for his performances as Ronan Malloy on The Young and the Restless, Jonathan Randall on All My Children, and Shayne Lewis on Guiding Light.

For All Mankind is created by Emmy Award winner Ronald D. Moore (Outlander, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica), Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi.

In addition to Branson the cast includes: Joel Kinnaman, Michael Dorman, Wrenn Schmidt, Shantel VanSanten, Sarah Jones and Jodi Balfour. General Hospital’s Jason David (Aiden Spencer) also appears in the series.
