I’m still waiting for Susan Lucci to sign! I want to see her do both a primetime role and All My Children.

Thankful to Lindsay, Cam, & Darnell for enlisting! I would like to see just about everyone else from AMC sign on w/ Prospect Park! For starters, Vincent Irizarry, Jordi Vilasuso, Michael E. Knight, J.R. Martinez, Cady McClain, Walt Willey, Bobbie Eakes, Rebecca Budig, Alicia Minshew, all the kids, Susan Lucci, Ricky & Chrishell…well as I was saying…everyone! And bring back more former stars!

Thank you for the news. I’m getting somewhat skeptical over the way they are pursuing the AMC stars. Though I love Darnell williams, his signing isn’t enough to get me to watch. And certainly, Lindsay Hartley and Cameron Matheson are no incentives either. When I hear Susan Lucci, Alicia Minshew , and Thorsten Kaye have signed on maybe I’ll be more enthusiastic. By the way, who made Lindsay Hartley the Pine valley Gazette on twitter? Shouldn’t this kind of an announcement come from Prospect Park? Or can’t they afford a PR person yet?

I’m a bit skeptical too….and like you, I find it funny that Lindsey is being the PR person for letting the fans know who is signing on to AMC. Maybe she’s doing it because she is in fear of the fans moving on and losing all interest. Although, I don’t think it helps to know that Darnell is signing on, when we know Debbi is now on Y&R…Jessie with no Angie, how fun is that gonna be? 🙁 I’m not for sure the fans are gonna get those names that we want to hear so badly….I think a large number of the cast still has a very bitter taste in their mouth. After I read the interview that Michael E Knight gave, that’s the impression that I got. So even though I would like to hear that Alicia, Rebecca, Susan, Michael, David, Jill, Cady Bobbie….among others, I’m starting to feel like it’s not likely.

Great news! I became a new viewer of AMC because of following my favorite Lindsay Hartley there when she joined the show, but very quickly fell in love with Michael E. Knight. Please, oh please, Prospect Park bring MEK to AMC 2.0!!! I’m also hoping that Vincent Irizzary and Jordi Vilasuso will sign up as well. Love to see Jill Larson back as Opal.

I have my doubts about the success of continuing AMC online. I think things were way too rushed. I agree with Torrey about the actors having a “bad taste” about how AMC was ruined by the network execs over the last few years. Read Carolyn Hinsey’s new book and it will really open your eyes about the goings on that contributed to AMC’s demise.
OLTL was given more time to wrap things up and have PP start negotiations with their actors. Seems to me OLTL has a better shot of continuing seemlessly onto the internet.

I agree with the prior comment. It may be too late now for AMC to rebuild and continue, as it was so ruined and quickly rushed off the air. ONE LIFE TO LIVE may have a better chance at retaining some of the actors and carrying momentum to its new platform. This all is such a tragedy. With so much upheaval in the world and in America, we need some sort of grounding continuity, and our beloved daytime dramas have provided that for so long. I urge my fellow fans to stay vigilant and boycott abc, especially the goo, except for the 2-hour time slot when OLTL and GH are airing.

Thrilled about Darnell, but Susan Lucci’s a deal breaker for me. Pine Valley without Erica Kane? Not for me.

I am excited that Lindsay, Cam and Darnell are on board. The Minx fans want to see Christina and Sarah approached/offered and sign on. Bianca’s character is too important to PV and Marissa too. Much more story to tell with them. Plus, hello, they are perfect age/target mkt age range for online, fairly new to AMC family, fantastic amazing actresses with a HUGE fanbase! Really feel it would be a big mistake to not have them on board.

That’s great. Can AMC go live with just 3 characters? Are they going to sit in a room and just stare at each other or is this a love triangle that will play 5 days a week for years to come?? Come on PP!! Who’s next… you need to work a little harder and a little smarter if you’re going to resurrect AMC anytime in the next 6 months.

Good news! Question is how will the absence of Angie be explained? I guess Lindsay was so eager to share the good news b/c that means she and Cam aren’t the only ones. I get why she did it, and it’s cool with me.

All My Children Alum Christopher Lawford Dead At 63

Sad news to report this Wednesday.  Christopher Lawford, best known to soap fans as Charlie Brent on All My Children from 1992-95, as well in the role of Senator Jordan on General Hospital in 2004, passed away at age 63.

Lawford who is the son of the actor Peter Lawford, and Patricia Kennedy, and whose uncles were Ted, Robert and President John F. Kennedy apparently died at a Yoga Studio on Tuesday night during a health emergency according to a report from TMZ.

Christopher had battled addiction in his life back in the 70’s and 80’s.  The actor was also a New York Times best selling author with his book, ‘Symptoms of Withdrawal.’

Being the nephew of John F. Kennedy, Lawford also spent time in the political arena with staff positions with The Democratic National Committee, and campaigns whether it be at the national, state, or local level

Lawford’s cousin Kerry Kennedy announced his death on social media.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica Kane), Lawford’s co-star on All My Children, shared her thoughts on Instagram at his passing: “Such very sad news that wonderful Chris Lawford has passed away. Chris was so great to work with—always prepared and always with a smile and an ease about him. He was warm and charming whether on set at AMC—or working hard for his charity. My deepest sympathy to his family. RIP, Chris”

One Life to Live & All My Children Reunion Event Photo Gallery

Over the weekend, actors who appeared on two beloved legacy soap operas: All My Children and One Life to Live took part in a reunion event held over GH Fan Club Weekend.  And while the fans in attendance were excited to see some of their favorites, it was the former cast members themselves getting to see their former co-stars for the first time in years which made the event all the more touching.

Then, in big surprise to the attendees, none other than former One Life to Live star, Nathan Fillion showed up to give hugs to his former castmates including: Erin Torpey (Ex-Jessica), and James (Ex-Max) and Kassie DePaiva (Ex-Blair), among others.  Fillion, who has gone on to primetime success with his show Castle, and his upcoming new series on ABC, The Rookie, has never forgotten his beginnings in show business as Joe Buchanan!  Who can forget his on-screen affair with Robin Strasser’s Dorian, which sent Viki (Erika Slezak) into orbit!

Kassie DePaiva (now Eve on DAYS) told Michael Fairman TV on Fillion’s appearance that she had reached out to him to let him know about the event: “I knew the fans would love it.  He is very proud of his roots.”

When asked about seeing the original Blair, Mia Korf, at the same event whom she had never met, Kassie said, “I went, ‘There’s the real Blair,” but it was really nice meeting her.  You know with One Life to Live actors, even if you didn’t work with somebody there is such a camaraderie, which makes this show so special.”

All My Children fans were thrilled to see appearances by Rebecca Budig (Ex-Greenlee), Vincent Irizarry (Ex-David), Jordi Vilasuso, who will soon be seen in his new role on Y&R, and played Dr, Griffin Castillo in Pine Valley, and many more.

Check out our photo gallery of some of the past cast from both AMC and OLTL who showed up to say “hello again” to each other and the fans below.  Then, let us know if it makes you miss Pine Valley and Llanview all the more in the comment section, and which photo you liked the most!
