Breaking news this afternoon! Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) has signed on for her first television role post-All My Children!  The soap icon will be appearing in a multi-episode story arc of Lifetime’s Army Wives! Lucci will appear in at least two episodes and maybe even more for the sixth season of the series!

According to TV Line, “Lucci will play the wife of a retired general who gives Kim Delaney’s Claudia valuable advice on how to deal with a potential rival.”   Army Wives also gives soap fans an inside hook, as it will reunite Susan with her former AMC castmate Kim Delaney who played Jenny Gardner.

Now with that being said, does this mean Susan has moved on from life in Pine Valley, and is not reconsidering an offer from Prospect Park to join AMC in some capacity when it moves online next year? Or, perhaps, it’s just a great fun choice role that came up in the interim … and that Susan is looking at this point in her career to take on other roles?  Only time will tell, but it will be great to see Susan back on our television screens once again.

While it is great for Susan to have a new temporary role, it will be a huge disappointment if she does not remain in the role of Erica Kane. Disappointing because since April 15, 2010, every AMC fan fought to have this soap remain in some way, shape or form. Susan praised the fans in their fight. I am hoping she will remain faithful to her fans and sign up for the online trip. I am still missing All My Children very much. Having hopes of its return come January.

I’m thinking it’s cool that La Lucci is playing a nice change-of-pace role for the time being! 🙂

That is fantastic news! I love Army Wives and Ms Lucci will be a welcome addition to the cast. “Erica Kane gives Jenny Nelson some advice!”

I just wish that we could get more news on the cast of AMC…..it’s seems like the news is few and far between. I agree with Nancy’s statement….the fans have fought really hard to keep AMC alive in one form or another, and I really hope the cast is considering moving along with AMC once it goes online. It would be devastating to have AMC return in January, only to find that the show is left with a skeleton cast….it would be hard to accept a version of the show that lacks so many familiar faces. Plus, I’m concerned that if Prospect Park can’t woo the talent to join up with the online venture, they will just scrap the whole show and focus their attentions on something else.

It doesn’t look too promising for AMC to make the move. Lots of actors from OLTL have already signed up but only a few from AMC.

I hope this isn’t for good.

I imagine Susan Lucci and Prospect Park will come to some agreement, don’t you? Erica Kane is Lucci’s legacy and she will want to protect that. Even if Erica is in the “new” Pine Valley on a limited basis or for short-term periods (as Anthony Geary does on GH), everyone wins. I am hoping for a fresh start for AMC 2.0. I fear some of the lamer stories are the ones that will be kept on. I am so over resurrections and plots that truly strain credulity. AMC has strayed in the last years here and that is part of why ABC felt compelled to cast it away.

the reason abc felt compelled to cast away amc & oltl because when disney bought abc their ultimate goal was to get rid of day time soaps – to be sure gh will be next

Good for Susan! She should take every job she can before AMC starts again. I am hopeful she will go online with them. I have heard from a reliable source that Prospect Park is in intense negotiations right now with All My Children cast & crew. While we may not hear anything, it is happening! Yay!

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.

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. . .”
