More changes at The Young and the Restless and this one comes about longtime All My Children fan favorite, Michael E. Knight (Ex-Tad Martin).

According to a tweet Friday morning from Michael Logan of TV Guide/TV Insider, Knight will complete his run as Dr. Simon Neville after a few more episodes.

Logan related: “More #YR news: Three time Emmy winner Michael E. Knight out as Dr. Simon Neville after a few more eps. Decision made before EP switch.”

While Knight’s Simon was put in a storyline with another Daytime Emmy winner, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), seems the show may be going in another direction.  Thus far, the CBS Daytime drama has made no announcement or confirmation on Knight’s departure.

Sad to hear Knight seems to be exiting Y&R? Hope he comes to another soap? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I watched a few eps. with him on and he just seemed out of place…jmho

I completely agree with you!

Patrick
Patrick

there certainly hasn’t been any “press” about Ashley and/or Dr. Neville

chalk it up to writing?

I wonder if this is a Mal Young “move” ???

lighting striking twice is so rare…

ED certainly did it… with Ashley and Kristen/Susan/Mary and the man…. LOL

should Mal Young have capitalized on Michael E. Knight Talent… ?

or must he know… his writing team just doesn’t have it in them

we “addicts” are cursed

this never ending gotta love it cycle

Becky

As much as I love him, I have to agree with you; he needs a lighter role.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

and i agree with you…a lighter role might have worked better for him!!1

Jiim, Dr Neville was funny as heck. And he didn’t fit in with Y&R because he was never given a chance. They have him in isolation tending to a comatose Hillary in Neil’s boathouse. He could have fitted in–he is an amazingly talented actor who rose above the crap that was thrown at him

@Harry – I completely agree!

Sad to hear that . I am 57 years old .I watched All my Children from day one . I would love for them to put it on from the 1st day.I thank a lot of fans would watch .or some how let the fans by them .

Maybe “Dr. Cliff Warner” recommended he should rest.

Joe

Enjoyed him for years on AMC, but he just never caught on with Y&R. He might have stood a better chance if they had kept Cady McClain and paired Simon with Kelly. Both of them might still be on the show. Just goes to show the Jill Farren Phelps has no clue what soap fans want. Glad she’s gone!

Ron
Ron

Don’t mind the actor, but I did mind the character– sci fi on Y and R? Here’s hoping things return to the origins of the program, starting back in 1970s with groundbreaking, honest and true stories, especially medical ones.

Rod

Loved him and Ashey they had really good chemistry & his quirkiness brought out some fun in Ashley too!! Will be sad to see him go but maybe that will mean less Hillary LOL she’s doing a great job being a witch!!

Nikki
Nikki

I loved him with Ashley as well. He brought a lighter side to the show and made Ashley laugh as well. I think there all crazy down there from the writer up. They don’t listen to the fans & get annoyed when we stop watching. Oh well no use complaining nobody is going to do anything. Hope your right Timmm and he goes to G.H. they seem to have a better story than Y & R right now.

Terri

I loved he and Ashley they were one of my favorite couples on the show. Very sad.

@Nikki – I agree and also loved him with Ashley. He brought a lighter side to the show. Very sad indeed!

Timmm
Timmm

GOOD! He was misused. Very talented but never clicked with anyone on the show. I hope he goes to GH and they pair him with Tracy Quartermanine. Those two would be awesome! BUT, you need a good story. Maybe he is Rachel’s father Raymond Berlin? Yummy!

Harry

MEK is only 10 years older than that dreadful Hayden.

Celia
Celia

That would be 15 years, Harry. Rebecca is only 42.

Celia
Celia

Sorry…
PS.
Remember that William/Julian is only 8 years older than Kelly/Sam (GH), and he plays her father. She looks her age, too….so if we can believe that, we can certainly accept ‘Hayden’ as Michael’s daughter. Rebecca can pass for a thirty-year-old. Not so Kelly, in my opinion.

Timmm
Timmm

Watch it Harry!

Celia
Celia

OH, OH, I loooove that idea, Timmmy. What a stroke of genius!! But, isn’t he in jail? I bet you’re on the right track, though.
….Gets out on a technicality: enter Michael. I am fantasizing, now. LOL.

Timmm
Timmm

Oh C, jail smail, Raymond Berlin is out of jail as soon as ABC decides they want to cast the character ! I know he isn’t much older than Hayden but the white hair helps.

Celia
Celia

@Timmm.
So true, Timmmy. If TPTB are ready to cast Ray, then, they will. I hope your eish is not out of reach. Technically, Michael is old enough to be Rebecca’s father. It is conceivable. As I said to Harry, if it works between Kelly M and William D, who’s depiction as Sam’s father is outrageous, age wise; then, it should work for Michael and Rebecca.

Ridiculous-keep Michael E. Knight and give him a “real” storyline!

Sammie Jo

Exactly! I liked him and his quirky personality and he and Ash were great together.
Maybe they’ll rework the story and bring him back.
I would much rather see hillary go.

Wrong role for Michael, wrong guy for Ashley!

Well, that’s a matter of opinion. I’ve never seen him before so I have nothing to compare, But I loved this pairing.

BRING HIM BACK IN A COUPLE OF MONTHS AS A TWIN AND LET HIM FALL FOR ASHLEY……YOU DONT LET A GEM LIKE MICHAEL E. KNIGHT GO!!!!!!!!!!

Sammie Jo

Oh please, lol not ANOTHER twin! LMAO
It really irked me today to see ash take the fall, didn’t she already try that to save John or was it the reverse? Too long ago to remember.

Magneto

Love him as an actor but I think the story has run its course. Honestly it’s time to refocus on the core families and cut down on how many characters are on the canvas. Hilary for example needs to go. Maybe via a “Who dun it?” or drop dead because the meds didn’t work. The whole Victor story is utter trash. I feel for those actors. I want to throw something at the screen every time Victor talks. He never truly pays (even when jailed) and it’s become ridiculous at this point. I’d even suggest him as a victim of a “Who dun it?” Storyline. Bring him back later but appear to whack him initially and perhaps even have the killer be Kelly Andrews back from the dead! Oh and can we just make Patty sane already. That character has so much promise but has been kept the resident loon for way to long. Wrap up the whole Sage’s baby story and give custody to Adam and Chelsea.

Timmm
Timmm

Dr. Neville could have “cured” Patty.

Celia

Yes, he could have cured Patty by ‘de-Jacking’ her. Ha! My Timmmbo!

I’ve watched Michael Knight on soaps since the first day he came on AMC. I was so glad to see him on Y&R and very sad that he’s leaving. I really thought there was a storyline brewing for him with Ashley…..In any event, I truly hope to see him on another soap very soon!!

jaybird369

Y&R…VERY, VERY D-U-M-B MOVE ON YOUR PART!!!!! Morons.

Abruzzfan

@jaybird369 I completely agree!

Mary SF

Nothing against the actor, but the story they stuck him and his character in was lame beyond description. So if his leaving means this whole miracle drug that isn’t story will go way, I am all for it.

And it is my profound hope that all soaps stop this silliness of stunt casting, bringing in a big name for what are essentially dead end roles. These talented men and woman deserve better–

Harry
Harry

Right–no actor can make bad writing work for a long period of time. They painted MEK into a corner and then that horrid JPF comes in for the kill.

Bart
Bart

One of the dumbest storylines ever on “Y & R” – pointless, convoluted and preposterous!!

Dr Helen Ruth
Dr Helen Ruth

I am in mourning over this. I love him. He was one of my favorites on “All My Children” and was a breath of fresh air on Y&R under Pratt, as he had humor and wasn’t always yelling and screaming at other people. Plus he’s an excellent actor.

Celia
Celia

You bet, Dr. I’m with Timmm. He should be Ray Berlin on GH. Michael is such a versatile actor-of-many-faces. His good looks and easy-going personality can make one eat out of his hand.
He was, Tad, the Cad, afterall. He can certainly assume the role of Ray B.

Timmm
Timmm

I pray I’m right C!

Celia

@Timmm.
Hey, Timmmy,
What about this…..what if Michael is a Cassadine? I would love to see a wicked Michael. I know he’d be able to work that role.
What if he staged Nik’s fall? What if Nik was not the real Nik, at all? Helena/the Cassadines had the real Nik all this time and an imposter took his place? A creation of Helena’s.
It’s the only route to take in order to redeem him.

Timmm
Timmm

You are so smart! Yes, michael as a Cassadine, a male version of Helena or an evil scientist who switched Nicks and created impostor Jason! That way sleepy Miller can go and Steve Burton can return! Big story possibilities!

Celia
Celia

@Timmm.
Thank you, Timmmy. Those of us who know Michael, the actor…..well, we are well aware that he can play any complex role given him.
He, as a Cassadine, would bring the house down with his suave, easy-going ‘stride’.
Now, Nikolas! What an enigma!! I can bet we all guessed that the peson (all covered up) sitting next to Ava on the plane was Nik. That scene was heralded by another scene…..’the sleepwalking duo’, Sam and Jason, who were hard at work finding clues on the Laptop about Nik. Too much of a coincidence.
As asinine as this story may be, wouldn’t it be such a gift if Michael would assume a Cassadine role?

It is a shame this did not work. Mr. Knight is a delight. But the storyline seemed out of synch with the endless Newman-centric shenanigans. I found it difficult to invest.

Wonder what all we might expect to Y&R in the post-JFP era?

Mo

That’s too bad. I liked him, although storyline did seem disjointed at times.

ALEXA

I think that MEK was one of the better new hires for Y&R… He was terrific in the role and his chemistry with Ashley was off the charts. His interactions with the other actors seemed exceptional along with his sense of humour and delivery… I would much rather have heard that STEVE Burton and Hunter King were leaving the show…. Maybe the new EP can make an executive decision and keep Simon Neville, at least for awhile longer!

Martin Verlander
Martin Verlander

Hunter King is now recurring since she’ll be on Life In Pieces…

Nikki

She’ll be back, she thinks everyone loves her. That crazy Chloe is coming back Dr. Neville could have cured her If they want to get rid of waste they can get rid of Hunter King for good and send Luka with her.

Suzanne

I love him! Don’t want him to go. But if he does I hope GH snaps him up!

Mary Lou DeVriendt
Mary Lou DeVriendt

I started watching Y&R to see him. It was so wonderful to see him again! I thought his chemistry with Eileen Davidson was off the charts! Other than Michael, I didn’t find that much to interest me, so I won’t continue watching. I’ll stick with GH & Days.

Terry L Kershaw
Terry L Kershaw

I think they should keep him and let him and Ashley become a couple. Everybody rushes to judgements with ratings or study groups. If that attitude went into everything we do there wouldn’t have been Law & Order or CSI or even cures for deadly diaseases.

Carole

He had a rapport with Eileen!

Sad to hear that lame excuse.. Oh he was already out.. HMMMM… then that should have been reported… And now the scrambling and rumors begin.. Just a hot mess

Mr. X
Mr. X

I enjoyed watching Mr. Knight but not so much his storyline. He would have been better off as a recast for a legacy character. Maybe he would have stuck around longer.

Tomas Torquemada
Tomas Torquemada

So sad. Did he even have a story line?

I know everyone her loves to chant ‘No need characters’. IMHO it should be No Characters without Stories!

He and Eileen could have worked. But she doesn’t have a story either. Half the cast on this show have no story. That’s the problem.

He’s as talented as they come. But you can’t animate what isn’t there. Stupid. For what it’s worth, I would have hoped he had been retained and finally given something to do. He was a plot point for a character on hiatus who needed to be returned. Well, Hillary came back and he hasn’t had anything to do since that

Harry
Harry

He is immensely talented and charming. They never gave him a decent story. I guess this is the last decision that that grim reaper of soaps (JFP) inflicted upon Y&R.. This is terrible unfair.

Timmm

Yes Harry, no story and no chemistry with Ashley. (no pun)

too bad…. doc neville and ash had a genuine sweet rapport!
hate to say this as much as i love eillen s ashley abbott… her imense talent is wasted on y n r!
how come she has nt visited vic, her once great love, father of her child once since he s been in jail?! she used to see the good in vic, moralised him, caused rifts between jack and nikki too
eilleen needs to be back in salem, days, as the fiery kirsten… days really needs her

The thing with Y&R—
If, a character is not connected to the Abbots or Newman’s, they are disposable; short lived.
It has always been that way always will be; if not of the Newmans and Abbotts then the actor had best have 2 jobs.

Harry

Or the Winters family.

Me too–they should have made him a long lost Chancelor or something. The Winters family gobbled him up.

jaybird369

Celia…I know. So totally true. Oh…as far as I’m concerned, those bone-heads at Y&R should have kept Michael E. Knight aka ‘Simon’ and FINALLY got rid of BOTH that dim-witted Devon and that FAKE-ASS WHACK-JOB H-O Hilary!!!!! Y-e-p.

Later, my friend.

Celia
Celia

Too bad the gods at Y&R used and abused this unique actor. Michael is so misplaced as Neville. I saw a possible fire between him and Ashley; but, no one cared enough to fan the flames. Thus, where else could he go except the corner?
Soon, Jay.

Ashleigh

Noooooooooooo!!!!!! Simon and Ashley was the only story I liked!!!!!! Ugh!!!!!

I don’t know if I even want to watch anymore. Now I don’t have my mom any more to watch it with and thr storylines are awful. How depressing.

Dawn D

I’m going to see what direction they are going in. I liked the doc. I’m just concerned how they are going to change the s/l’s. Sometimes the changes are worse than before as I have experienced on other soaps. So I’ll keep an open mind.

Sean

I bet Frank and the people at GH will bring him in as another new character

I love michael and I think they didn’t use him right. I remain hopeful another soap offers him something right. Bah to bnb

Tani Sterling

Yes, he may have seemed “out of place,” but I found it delightful. Neville was as close to a dramedy as it gets. I always looked forward to seeing him although it wasn’t exactly clear where and how he would develop. It could have gone several different directions. Wish he could stick around.

Cindy
Cindy

Hope he comes to GH then, I miss Tad and he could be someone new on GH perhaps a Cassidine!!

Harry

I’d rather see him as some lost Quartermaine. Or better yet, make him the new butler since Alice doesn’t seem to be around anymore.

Melissa

Really like the actor and would love to see him land elsewhere in daytime. Maybe the new doc at DOOL? That would make me start watching!

diane

They really never did anything with his character.

Rose
Rose

Join Y&R at your own peril…Michael (Tad) and (Cady) Dixie both done wrong. And Patrick (Billy) not looking so good. Some think the same of Steve (Dylan) as well. But then roles at GH haven’t done justice to Roger (Franco), Michelle(Nina) or Michael (Finn) either. Tough to switch from one show/ identity and assume a new one on another soap, no matter how popular. Still I wouldn’t mind seeing MK at GH…I think Harry suggested as a Q.

Leslye A.
Leslye A.

Stupid decision…..I thought he had good chemistry with Eileen Davidson-lots of potential for story. There are other people on Y&R that I would have liked to see go.Hillary, Devon, Luca for example. Please let another soap hire Michael.

tey just never developed the character..they brought him in on a rediculous storyline,..that just never took off…they just kept him in a lab coat in stead of developing a love story with ashley…as i did kind of liked the 2 together..now lets get rid of hillary,,devon,,,computer geek,,,brethany i mean cm,on writers please,,wtf…recast jill,,,and give the role to someone who wants to be there,,,some how continue the lagacy of the character of catherine chancellor through a relative maybe a sister,,,Kim Zimmer anyone….put the chancellor estate baxk to its old glory,,,oh yes and send new billy with new phylis to port charles,,dump this whole victor in prison crap,.i mean seriously the actors in his late 70s and were to believe prison drs are doing him on the infermatory floor…sorry but erics days as a leading man are done,,get back to the hystory of the show bring back matured fan fave actors like jamie lyn bauer and janice lynde,,bring them back with a few kids of there own and start your younger set there,,,maybe even woo john mcok from b and b back,,,bottom line start over,,,

If true, it is heartbreaking, though not unexpected given the miserable treatment of Darnell Williams, Debby Morgan and Cady McClain.
It is clear that whoever is in charge of this show has no clue what talent looks like nor how to write for it.

So saddened to hear this!. I thought he was a welcome breath of fresh air. It’s too bad he was placed in a dud of a storyline.

I’m really sad to hear this, as well. He is a magnificent actor, still so handsome and talented and just right for Ashley. Major opportunity blown, there.

Harry

The sad thing is that MEK was all excited about getting this gig and was just glowing about how good his cast mates were.
I cannot but help but think he was too isolated from the core families/characters.
GH made the same mistake with such characters as Nina, Franco and the second character Michael Easman played (forgive me, he’s played so many characters on GH, I cannot recall his name).
I also cannot help but think that if Jeaane Cooper were around this would not have happened. It’s easy to visualize Mrs C taking Simon under her wing

Maybe IMDb hasn’t been updated but it does not indicate he appeared in many episodes.

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.

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.

Photo: SOD

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. . .”

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.”

Photo: JPI

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.
