AMC’s Greenlee Smyth has risen again!  As reported earlier by Daytime Confidential, Rebecca Budig is on her way back to AMC to resucciate her role of Greenlee just in time for the shows LA move, where Rebecca lives with her hubby, Bob Guiney.  The actress is set to tape scenes in New York next month and then continue with the show out in LA.  Here are some excerpts from the TV Guide interview by Michael Logan on Rebecca’s return…

What are you doing back? Didn’t Greenlee go over a cliff and plummet hundreds of feet into some kind of icy water?
I leave. I come back. [Laughs] I’m the Brett Favre of soaps. I think Greenlee went into a river. Or maybe a lake. I don’t know. Pine Valley is ridiculous. They even have a freakin’ ocean in that town.

It’s been reported online that you only agreed to a recurring stint on AMC so that you can do other projects.
They got it wrong. It’s a contract deal. [Executive producer] Julie Carruthers and I had a really nice conversation where she was feeling me out about coming back. I said, “I’m open to returning, but I just want to make sure there will be a great story because it’s going to be right at the start of pilot season. I don’t want to commit to something that’s not worthwhile and fun.”

As I recall, you weren’t happy with the way they were writing Greenlee, which is why you left earlier this year.
I want to play that interesting girl I played years ago. I think everyone at AMC wants to focus on character now, rather than having [plot move the show]. It’s about what’s going on underneath. They really want to revamp the show and take it in a better direction. Last time I was there, we kind of lost Greenlee along the way. I didn’t recognize her sometimes.

Greenlee was about to marry Ryan [Cameron Mathison] when she “died.” Now he’s romancing Erica [Susan Lucci]. Will Greenlee try to get him back? It’s not too late. Weirdly, they haven’t had sex yet.
They haven’t? And Ryan’s such a whore! But they do look great together. I have to say, I do love shooting those catfights with Susan.

Cady McClain Remembers ‘All My Children’ On Its 50th Anniversary Sharing: “I Will Always Be Grateful For the Experience, and For The Lifelong Relationship With All The Fans”

The beloved All My Children first aired on January 5th, 1970 on ABC and ran on the network until it was canceled back in September of 2013.  The next year, the show received a short-lived reboot online via Prospect Park.

One of the actresses to appear in both the network and online version was Daytime Emmy winning actress Cady McClain, who became soap-famous for her role as Dixie Cooney Martin and together with Michael E. Knight, became one of soaps all-time popular duos as Tad and Dixie.

While so many miss All My Children every single day and the indelible characters created by the late, great Agnes Nixon, McClain took to her Instagram on Sunday to relate what the soap opera meant to her in her life.

Here is what Cady shared along with a cover of Soap Opera Digest featuring Michael Knight and herself as Tad and Dixie: “Today I am celebrating the 50th Anniversary of “All My Children”! I started on the show when I had just turned 19 in the fall of 1988. I worked as a contract player thru 1996. I was back in the fall of 1997 again under contract and worked through 2001. That’s roughly 13 years. Then I came back for a year in 2006, then for a couple months in 2012. Then I did the internet version for six weeks and then… the show was done.

FRIDAY: All My Children Icon Susan Lucci To Co-Host 'The Dr. Oz Show'

For many years this show and the people on it were like family to me. The makeup artists as much mom’s as my own mom to me at times. And thanks to the work I was able to afford some art school and college as well. I saw many great shows (both American and International) that came to NYC, which opened my eyes to what performance could be. It allowed me to do a lot of Off-Broadway theater and roles in five Indie films while working my day job.

I was nominated three times and won my first Emmy. I made some lifelong friends like Michael E. Knight, James Patrick Stewart, Jill Larson, Penny Bergman, Julia Barr, Lonnie Quinn and many others both in front of and behind the scenes. And most importantly, I was able to take care of my wild but wonderful mother. ‘She who drove me nuts’ but impressed on me the importance of having art in ones life. Who read me poems and took me to museums. My child who died but who I so grateful to have known. Thank you ABC and all the producers and writers who supported me and my work. Because of your support my life was richer, broader, more interesting. I will always be grateful for the experience …. and for the lifelong relationship with all the fans! Massive shout out to the daytime fans who continue to support me in my projects. When I meet one of you on the street I am truly grateful for your time and that we got to share some really special moments together. . .”
