Former All My Children star, Terri Ivens (Ex-Simone Torres) joins the ranks of well-known soap stars who comprise the cast of All My Children’s current Supervising Producer, Sonia Blangiardo and her upcoming project and series Tainted Dreams for her NYC Brand Productions!

According to Blangiardo, “Ivens will play the role of ‘Kassandra Bentley,’ an in your- face, manipulative actress who stars in Tainted Dreams soap within the soap, “Painted Dreams”.

Alicia Minshew (Kendall, AMC) who is already been previously announced will play ‘Angelica Caruso,’  “Painted Dreams” senior producer who is stuck trying to deal with all the backstage chaos actors like Iven’s ‘Kassandra’ leave in their wake.

For more on Tainted Dreams, visit the NYC Brand Productions website here!  Ivens joins former All My Children stars, Walt Willey, Michael Lowry, Minshew, plus former Guiding Light star, Grant Aleksander and more for this new series!

So what do you think of the cast and premise thus far of Tainted Dreams, with the addition of Ivens?

I miss Alicia playing Zach’s paramour in AMC – loved them. Trying hard to be happy for her because she’s amazing.

You and me both. I love Zach and Kendall too. I hope AMC can make room for Alicia and that she still wants to do AMC. In the meantime, I’m very happy Alicia will be on Tainted Dreams with her good pal Terri and others. At least Alicia lives in NY, will be working on TD in NY, while AMC films in CT. She’s on the right coast, at least. (Trying to stay hopeful and find the silver lining here…)

Yes – I’m so happy I get to see AMC and I’ve wondered about Alicia – I thought maybe she was on Broadway or happy to raise her child…but I’ll definitely check out Tainted Dreams, I’m presuming it will be available in some form, yes?
The silver lining, I think maybe, is that we have these people back in our lives in some new and experimental and progressive fashion..that’s so much better than two years ago! Thanks very much for you reply and the info. L

I think the cast so far is promising. Using actors and actresses from multiple soaps is a brilliant way to utilize aspiring talent. When is the debut of Tainted Dreams? I especially like Alicia Minshew, Terri Ivens and Walt Willey. I would love to see Rebecca Budig (Greenlee) and Reva and Josh (The Guiding Light) back in action once again. I will watch Tainted Dreams as the line-up so far is great.

I like Sandy’s comments and am looking forward to Tainted Dreams. I like the fact that a soap will be done in NY as many great soap actors still have NY as their home base. When will it debut and will it be on television or on the net?

I am excited that so many talented actors with soap opera experience were hired for this new show! MIchael Park & Trent Dawson, from ATWT and Robert Newman & Kim Zimmer from GL would be great additions to this show. Michael or Robert would be great as Ethan Washington. Trent would be great as Eddy Parish. Maybe Kim could play Courtney Parish. Just some ideas! 🙂

All My Children Alum Christopher Lawford Dead At 63

Sad news to report this Wednesday.  Christopher Lawford, best known to soap fans as Charlie Brent on All My Children from 1992-95, as well in the role of Senator Jordan on General Hospital in 2004, passed away at age 63.

Lawford who is the son of the actor Peter Lawford, and Patricia Kennedy, and whose uncles were Ted, Robert and President John F. Kennedy apparently died at a Yoga Studio on Tuesday night during a health emergency according to a report from TMZ.

As of now, it is being reported that Christopher’s death appears to be from “natural causes.” The coroner is performing an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death.

Christopher had battled addiction in his life back in the 70’s and 80’s.  The actor was also a New York Times best selling author with his book, ‘Symptoms of Withdrawal.’

Being the nephew of John F. Kennedy, Lawford also spent time in the political arena with staff positions with The Democratic National Committee, and campaigns whether it be at the national, state, or local level

Lawford’s cousin Kerry Kennedy announced his death on social media.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica Kane), Lawford’s co-star on All My Children, shared her thoughts on Instagram at his passing: “Such very sad news that wonderful Chris Lawford has passed away. Chris was so great to work with—always prepared and always with a smile and an ease about him. He was warm and charming whether on set at AMC—or working hard for his charity. My deepest sympathy to his family. RIP, Chris”

One Life to Live & All My Children Reunion Event Photo Gallery

Over the weekend, actors who appeared on two beloved legacy soap operas: All My Children and One Life to Live took part in a reunion event held over GH Fan Club Weekend.  And while the fans in attendance were excited to see some of their favorites, it was the former cast members themselves getting to see their former co-stars for the first time in years which made the event all the more touching.

Then, in big surprise to the attendees, none other than former One Life to Live star, Nathan Fillion showed up to give hugs to his former castmates including: Erin Torpey (Ex-Jessica), and James (Ex-Max) and Kassie DePaiva (Ex-Blair), among others.  Fillion, who has gone on to primetime success with his show Castle, and his upcoming new series on ABC, The Rookie, has never forgotten his beginnings in show business as Joe Buchanan!  Who can forget his on-screen affair with Robin Strasser’s Dorian, which sent Viki (Erika Slezak) into orbit!

Kassie DePaiva (now Eve on DAYS) told Michael Fairman TV on Fillion’s appearance that she had reached out to him to let him know about the event: “I knew the fans would love it.  He is very proud of his roots.”

When asked about seeing the original Blair, Mia Korf, at the same event whom she had never met, Kassie said, “I went, ‘There’s the real Blair,” but it was really nice meeting her.  You know with One Life to Live actors, even if you didn’t work with somebody there is such a camaraderie, which makes this show so special.”

All My Children fans were thrilled to see appearances by Rebecca Budig (Ex-Greenlee), Vincent Irizarry (Ex-David), Jordi Vilasuso, who will soon be seen in his new role on Y&R, and played Dr, Griffin Castillo in Pine Valley, and many more.

Check out our photo gallery of some of the past cast from both AMC and OLTL who showed up to say “hello again” to each other and the fans below.  Then, let us know if it makes you miss Pine Valley and Llanview all the more in the comment section, and which photo you liked the most!
