Awesome interview MEK is right I never blamed PP I do however think ABC/D had a part in spoiling their plans. Now that ABC is feeling the pain in the rateings they might help PP out or steal the glory for themselves

Thanks so much for the wonderful interview! It will be so wonderful if the plans work out for this soap and OLTL to come back. I still love seeing the Soapnet episodes even if they are four years old!

Wonderful interview. Made my day. All My Children was family for many viewers and to lose them was a great loss.
I also think ABC was clueless in the last yrs. It was liked they wanted to sabotage ratings to replace with a cheaper sow that I refused to watch.
Seeing Agnes on the View when her shows were being honored but canceled, it broke my heart to see her cry.
She brought happiness to millions.
Thanks Cady, MEK, Jill, Bobbie, Vincent,Lee, Amanda for being our Martin family we loved so much

Wow! What a great interview, Michael. Just to see and listen to all the actors and their take on what went down in the end is sad and very powerful. Vincet has the best idea about a prime time special, Hey, producers you should tak a good look at this. I hope you do more of this type of interview, Michael, with all of the cast members from various soaps.

I watched this show from Day 1 and loved every moment, recording the show every day. When weddings, funerals and memorial services were about to be seen, I would stop the recording, set my chair closer to the TV, grab my tissues, and then start the action. I cried with you; I laughed with you!
I would love to see it on the “air” be it TV or web, but I agree that closure is needed for the show if it is not to be revived. Even a two-hour special would be better than “Bang bang we know who got shot and you don’t!” scenario that the show left for the audience.

How fun! I met Vincent Irrizarry at a fan event in Milwaukee…what a nice man! I hope that the show truly does come back. I want to see them all back in action! Great interview. Thank you!

I think she’s a good actress, by my heaven’s Cady McClain spoke nonstop! She just kept going and going, with nonsense! Lee got a couple seconds to speak and Ms. Blabbermouth took over for many minutes on end!

MEK is so reserved and so poised. It’s easy to overlook him because he doesn’t put himself “out there” like other actors, but when you see his work on screen, your jaw just falls to the floor.

I just was able to look at the video this morning. It was very good. I do agree that Cady does talk a lot, but I like her. Obviously. you never liked her.

Jules

Why is it obvious I never liked her? “Never” is a long time, “like” is a subjective term, and I’m pretty sure my personal feelings of the actress was not expressed at all in those sentences.

You know nothing of me, let alone on anything related to AMC. Please think twice before you make assumptions.

Oye – Cady and those jabber jaws! I love Michael but ran out and had two orders of Peanut Butter Pancakes when she ate those poisoned ones!
;-D
Now that AMC (& OLTL) are coming back I have visions of Cady doing everything but skydiving buck naked to get her tiny feet in the cyber door of AMC’s online show. Sorry Tad & Dixie fans but after watching AMC since day one – she started driving me nuts on and off the show. She’s a wee bit of an airhead. ‘I’ liked Cady until I saw her (more than once) literally talk over other cast members in a attempt to turn the focus on her. There are other reasons for the way I feel but enough said. I cannot wait for AMC to reboot – let the good times roll!

I started watching All My Children when I was pregnant for my son,on the first day it was on. All those years till the end. I really miss not seeing it, after all those years I wish it was still on, and I record all the past runs so that I could look of all those memories , I hope that it still has a chance to finish the show online.

Same here, when I was pregnant the hormones would make me cry at the last few notes of the theme song, lol. I still watch the reruns because I did not watch religiously until 2010 and I just LOVE the show so much, those characters are part of my life…they remind me of raising my babies and watching it during their naptimes 🙂 I would cry if they ever came back!

This was a wonderful interview with the Martin Family and Vincent Irizarry during the Christmas holidays, Michael. Now that Prospect Park is bringing back AMC and OLTL, have you talked to any of these people about how they would feel about returing to AMC on the Web – TOLN? I know that Vincent has already signed on as his evil Dr. David Hayward and am very excited about this. Do you know if Michael is going to return as Tad Martin, or if any one else in the Martin Family is returning? I would love to hear from you regarding other people from AMC who have decided to make the transition from TV to the Internet. If you have done such an article, would you please let me know where I can find it as I would very much like to read it. I enjoy all your articles on the soaps …. I feel you are a soap lover just as I am. Thanks for all your support in helping to get these 2 soaps back … and I feel PP will do their best to present these soaps in a way that will make us fans happy!!!!!! It is like a Christmas miracle for us soap fans!!!!!!!

‘The Masked Singer’ Runner-up, Ex- AMC’s Jesse McCartney, Recalls Working With David Canary

If you caught the finale of The Masked Singer this week, you know that “The Turtle” was revealed to be none other than former All My Children star and recording artist, Jesse McCartney.

While McCartney came in as the runner-up, losing out to Kandi Burress, he spoke to Digital Journal about his latest single, “Friends’ and recalled his time working with the one and only David Canary (Ex-Stuart/Adam) on the now defunct ABC daytime drama series.

As a young JR Chandler from 1998-2001, that put him sharing on-screen time with Canary, who played his father.  Jesse remembers all of the lines of dialogue thrown at him at a young age was not fun.

When speaking of his time with Canary, McCartney shared: “He was one of the sweetest guys on the planet and he was such a kind soul. He played my father, Adam Chandler, and not only was he the star of the show but he played his own twin brother, Stuart. He had double the lines of any character on the show, and in my three years on the show, he never messed up a line even once. There was a time when David helped me when I was having a moment and I struggled with remembering my lines, so as a result, the soap world for me is very sentimental.”
