Well what can we say about this terrific video from the folks at The Online Network and All My Children!  Soap opera actress and daytime drama director and producer extraordinaire, Francesca James is back working on AMC, but not behind-the-scenes as a director or a producer or executive producer, as she has done previously with AMC, and in part with General Hospital, but as one of the new online revival characters named Evelyn Johnson! But is she really “Evelyn Johnson”? That remains a big question!

Daytime and AMC fans remember Francesca for her role as Kitty Shea Tyler, and later as  her identical twin Kelly Cole!  Francesca also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in 1980 for her work on AMC! In this newly released video which landed first at TV Guide, “Meet Francesca James”, the talented woman is seen coming back to work for the first time in AMC’s new Connecticut studios, and having some very humorous banter in the dressing room hallways with co-star Thorsten Kaye (Zach Slater).  In addition, Julia Barr (Brooke) and Vincent Irizarry (David) add their comments on having this true soap legend back in the saddle as one of the series cast members!

And yes, you will hear On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman asking Francesca questions and commenting on her return to All My Children during the clips from an interview conducted at the Sleepy Hollow cast photo shoot in New York City a few months back.

So what do you think of Francesca playing a role on-camera on the new All My Children? Who do you think Evelyn Johnson will turn out to be?  Related to who?  What will be her “drama”?   Share your thoughts below!

I’m almost certain she was killed. She killed his father or caused the father to kill himself. She was a maniac.

Michael, you are so correct, Ms James is one of the best actresses ever on daytime. I admired her as Marcy Wade on OLTL before she joined AMC. Her speaking voice is so distinct and wonderful to hear again. I hope her new character is somehow related to Kitty and Kelly.

Michael, this does not have to do with this video, but why is there no way to reach Prospect Park /TOLN.? I found a FB page, but it turns out to be just a fan page. thank you for keeping us posted through all of this, Michael. You are the best. I didn’t discover your page til our shows were originally in Jeopardy but am so glad I did!

I agree…there should be an address to write them…they should listen to viewers feedback!

They should have a presence on Facebook or a “contact us” or something on their website. Heck, if they’d hire me I’d do it from home, if they’d give me info. There is no way to contact them at all. I found a site on Facebook that looks like it is them. Then I read really old posts and it used to be an “anti” Prospect Park site. And once it looked like the shows were coming on, it changed the name, and now it looked like it IS Prospect Park, but it is just a fan page.

Love Francesca – But I must confess I do hope it’s revealed that she’s actually Kelly Cole Tyler and that Linc (Peter White) is not far behind.
It would be nice to have some (old) stock of Pine Valley in the form of some Tyler blood (was there any left when AMC went off the air)?
In any case glad she’s back – in front of the camera.

This is wonderful. I remember as Kitty/Kelly years ago when I did watch AMC and I’ve certainly watched episodes she directed on GH. Can’t wait to see her as a new character.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!! All I dreamed of was to retire and be able to watch All MY Children. I retired last July, and I have been waiting for you. Now my wait is over. I will be with you everyday. I have watched this soap from the very first episode b&w 1/2 hr.
See you Monday

One of my earliest soap memories was the Linc and Kitty pairing-though I ran into Kelly at some point, I’m sure. At any rate, this will be my first REAL exposure to Francesca-looking forward to it

Would love to see Gillian Spencer show up in Llanview claiming to be the real Viki Lord!(she did originate the role from what ive been told) Or is the war of two Todds, and the Natalie/Jessica storyline enough of the twin story? I still think the two Vikis would be fun to watch…especially if they turn out to be faternal twins like Nat and Jess!

It seems incomprehensible that Brooke at least won’t say something about how much she resembles her cousin Linc’s wife. She and Joe Martin are probably the only character’s still on who really knew the Kelly Tyler character. She looks wonderful, and her spirit is as lovely as I recall.

Hey Gracie. Actually, She was on in 2005 at Phoebe’s Funeral and that was 8 Years Ago. She was on in 2008 at Myrtle’s Funeral and that was 5 Years Ago. Maybe She Meant as Her Storyline was that They Moved to Switzerland. Francesca Took Care of Eileen in Real Life. Also, Ginger had It Wrong when she said that Francesca was on from the Beginning. Francesca came on in 1973. I Remember when Hal Short was on there and Somebody said He is A New Character. He was Actually Al Shea and He was her Ex Husband. He wanted… Read more »

Hey Kim. NO, I want Erika Slezak to be Viki. Whenever I see Gillian Spencer, I Think of Daisy Cordtlandt. Jody

Hi, Michael Fairman, I just recently viewed your interview and video of Ms James! I am so happy that she is on the show as a new character! She looks fabulous! Do you ever get a chance to run into her? I am sure that a lot of people have missed her performances! She has accomplished greatness in her professional life. What a gift!Thank you, Karen Fredericksen!

I kept racking my brain trying to figure out who Evelyn is!! I googled and it brought me here…..got my answer! Of course, it is Francesca! It had been so long! I loved her then……cannot wait to see where this goes! It feels so great to have the AMC family back in my living room again. Now if I could just get the GL family back too! thank you OWN for doing this……I hope it is not temporary!

I went to school with Francesca and watched her on the soaps and I must say she is just as beautiful as she was then, and so talented. We all knew she would succeed in anything she tried, Good Luck Francesca, welcome back to the front of the camera

I too, went to school with Ms. James and knew always that she was going to become somebody special in the acting arena. She could act, sing, dance, and she was a brilliant student. She had it all. I don’t watch the soaps but wish Francesca the best in the years ahead I am sure there will be another emmy for her in the near future.

All My Children Alum Finn Wittrock To Headline ‘Green Lantern’

From Pine Valley to the DC Universe! Now comes word that former All My Children star, Finn Wittrock (Ex-Damon Miller) will take on the role of Guy Gardner/Green Latern on the upcoming HBO Max series, Green Lantern from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Brothers Television.

According to Deadline who dropped the casting news, Wittrock’s Guy Gardner/Green Lantern is “a hulking mass of masculinity, and, as rendered in the comics, an embodiment of 1980s hyper-patriotism. And yet, Guy is somehow likable.”

In the premise of the series, Green Lantern reinvents the classic DC property through a story spanning decades and galaxies, beginning on Earth in 1941 with the very first Green Lantern, secretly gay FBI agent Alan Scott, and 1984, with cocky alpha male Guy Gardner (Wittrock) and half-alien Bree Jarta. They’ll be joined by a multitude of other Lanterns — from comic book favorites to never-before-seen heroes.”

Previously, Finn received Emmy nominations for his work on American Horror Story: Freak Show and for Versace: American Crime Story.

So what do you think of Finn’s new role? Comment below.
