Rebecca Budig reveals she wanted Leo & Greenlee to be together at the end of AMC!



Everyone loved seeing Rebecca Budig (Greenlee) on-screen with Josh Duhamel when he returned for a brief stint as Leo du Pres, recently on All My Children. Problem was Duhamel’s return made Leo  just a dream and not one of the Pine Valley un-dead, care of the Project Orpheus.

Now Budig is admitting to TV Guide, just how she wanted Greenlee’s happy ending to turn out as All My Children bids farewell on network television on September 23rd. “You know how I wanted Leo to come back? I wanted him to be my ending,” Taking nothing away from Ryan (Cameron Mathison), but I wanted Leo and Greenlee to go through this whole thing. I wanted to be struggling because I find out he’s alive, and when I find him, he’s struggling because I’m the love of his life. In the end, I wanted them to go off together. The audience doesn’t know what’s going to happen to them, we just see them going away.”

Instead, of course, Greenlee woke up to find Zach (Thorsten Kaye), still alive after going down in a plane crash several months ago.  “It was a little bizarre. I was thrilled to work with Josh again, but it was sort of a tease, too,” Budig said.

The actress went on to admit, “I had something special with Josh that I’ve never had with anyone. It just felt really real and authentic and that’s hard to come by. I do feel that with Cameron, too, though. I don’t know — I got lucky.”

Would you have preferred a Leo and Greenlee reunion as AMC fades to black on ABC? Let us know!

I think I speak for a lot of people when I say HECK YES!!!! Rylee is putrid disgusting crap that is insuluting to the longtime viewers of AMC. Heck, even the actors don’t like it. Put Greenleo and Ryan/Gillian together and call it a day.

Absolutely!!! Rebecca understands and knows the GreenLeo fans so well! As happy as I was to see Josh come back as Leo, it was a HUGE disappointment that the writers chose to have him come back simply as a dream. I mean, Josh returning was a GIFT, and that was the best they could do?! Seriously, Rebecca was so right. Her ending for Greenlee would have been THE perfect ending, not only for Greenlee herself, but for Leo & Greenlee together. After all, they were one of AMC’s most loved couples EVER! There’s no reason why they couldn’t have written that way. As far as I’m concerned, once again AMC blew it BIG TIME! I wish Rebecca all the best and I hope she gets a chance to work with Josh again some day, hopefully on the big screen. Their chemistry is too incredible not to be seen again!

Nice to see someone’s in touch with what the audience wanted. Why in the hell didn’t they write it so that Leo was alive and so that he and Greenlee rode off into the sunset? I don’t know how they are going to do the whole Gillian story, since it was released that she is coming back, but if she shows up alive and Leo isn’t that will be a real disappointment for me. It doesn’t make sense, since we all saw her die, go through the operation and be buried…..but Leo whose body was never recovered is dead? Greenlee should be with Leo!! Not Ryan….

It is funny how the actors and the audience know what’s working and what doesn’t but not the people in charge, Frons mostly (but then again he is the idiot who canned OLTL when it’s the highest rated soap on his network!!! Moron!)
I love Leo and Greenlee too, they were my favorite thing about AMC EVER!!! Seeing clips of them from the past shows me how perfect they were and how much Leo is missed!!! At least the actor came back before it goes off.

Perhaps Josh/Leo didn’t have the time or desire to come and stay. I have also missed him a lot. He and Greenlee definitly had chemistry.

Something tells me that Leo would have turned out alive if the Prospect Park deals hadn’t come into play. That said, even then, if Rebecca Budig was sure to not make the transition to the web soap, they could have worked out in time a GreenLeo happy ending.
