Three-Time Daytime Emmy Winner, Cady McClain, Reveals She’s ‘Back On Set’ But On Which Show?

Photo: HutchinsPhoto.com

After her Instagram post earlier this week, fans of Cady McClain have been attempting to dissect her cryptic tease of a message. McClain, a three-time Daytime Emmy winner, shared the good news with fans that she is ‘back to work’, except she didn’t share which show or project she is working on … just yet!

In her post, McClain teased: “Back on set! Fun to be working again on such a terrific show! Can’t wait to be able to share the news with you all soon! Meantime, hoping you are all taking good care of yourselves. Sending hugs!! ”

Now, it could be Cady is working on a primetime show, not a daytime show, but we shall see.

She has previously appeared on The Young and the Restless and Days of our Lives of the four remaining daytime soaps.  On Y&R she played Kelly Andrews, and on DAYS, Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  And, as viewers of the NBC soap saw this week, Jennifer (in a short appearance by Melissa Reeves) returned to Salem with Jack (Matthew Ashford), only to tie-up loose ends over the holidays and exit the show.

Since DAYS still tapes months ahead, could McClain be returning there, or might she pop up on GH and B&B? The character of Kelly was killed-off of Y&R back in 2015.

Previously, Cady became soap-famous for her roles as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children and Rosanna Cabot on As the World Turns.

Share your thoughts on which show you hope Cady is working on, whether, primetime, daytime, or a streaming series, in the comment section below.

It would be nice to have her pop up on GH as Dixie but I don’t know if that would work since Michael E. Knight is now Martin Gray on that show.

She could go back to Y&R as Roseanna Cabot…that might be nice too.

But if she’s going to be a new character, I’m sure it will be good either way.

A short-term gig as one of Martin’s ex-wives on GH could be fun. Heck, I’d buy her as Esme’s birth mother. Would give Cady scenes opposite her husband.

However, since GH is dark this week, I’m guessing that it’s a different show. B&B?

Thank You, James! Rosanna was my favorite character when Cady played her. Rarely do we get such a smart, admirable, and brave woman who actually respects herself the way Rosanna did. She and Maura West as Carly, her half-sister, were pure soap magic together. Y&R was not a good fit for her, not as Kelly anyway. Not even Cynthia Watros could salvage that train wreck character!

Show up on B&B as Liam’s supposedly deceased mother

If we’re sticking to daytime, and going by her costume, hair & makeup, I’d wager to believe she is on the set of General Hospital. However, she could also be on set of a primetime series and/or film. Who knows. Am hoping it is daytime related, though. Days of Our Lives should have kept on her; reception was positive, and she did marvelous work. However, given the dire look and state the soap is in, I wouldn’t want her near it.

Scott, aren’t you the detective! I was hopeful for her return to DOOL, but that hairstyle alone is the not Jennifer’s style last time we saw McClain in the role. And I certainly get your point about the current status of DOOL. Whatever show has hired McClain is lucky to have her! Happy New Year!

I hope she’s coming back as Jennifer Horton Deveraux. I think DAYS needs more Hortons on the set. The grandparent generation is there, but not the parent generation of Hortons. (And, yes, I know I’m not counting Tom and Alice since they passed away.) Julie, Doug and Maggie are still around; seen every once in a while. But Hope and Jennifer, our mainstays for so long, are gone. Even Lucas just left again. Allie and Johnny, Shawn and Belle, and even the next generation in Ciera and Ben (plus baby), are difficult to identify as Hortons since they spend so… Read more »

Here Ye, Here Ye !!! ^^^^^ “… With only four soaps left, there is an embarrassment of extremely talented actresses who could take on the role. ” that’s just it… a treasure chest trove of ideal actors to step up. I get that at least @Days is trying to canvas the whole cast.. hence ALL the comings and goings.. which should satiate the legion of fan . I hoped this was so… Newbies, don’t know the past , supercouples, they want to watch Ben and Cierra, Jake and Gabs… as the desired demographic… I go with this… just throw in… Read more »

Please let it be on the set of All My Children/ Pine Valley!! I’ll be happy wherever she is though.

And she’s married to Jon Lindstrom, or Kevin Collins on GH. Seems good acting runs in the family.

She could be on GH as a love interest for Martin Gray her old love on AMC.

Sounds like fun. It would be interesting when Candy and Kevin’s paths might cross on GH if this happened.

Would be fun if it is GH since Cady and Maura were fantastic as Rosanna and Carly on ATWT, and her hubby is also there, as are so many other fantastic actors. But if not, I actually really enjoyed her with Jack on Y and R, until she went psycho. Seems Jack has a pattern on that front, and I have absolutely no desire to see Jack and Phyllis reunite. Not sure why Peter, aka Jack, has been off campus during the holidays (hopefully he is healthy and simply taking a vacation in “NYC”), but with Stitch returning earlier this… Read more »

Here’s hoping she’s playing Jenny Eckert on GH! It would be great to see her on-screen with Jon Lindstrom since they’re married in real life. Jenny is also Luke’s cousin, and with his recent “death” (he’s 100% not dead), it would be neat to see her factor into this story somehow.

Sorry Jimmy – but bite your tongue. As someone who lived through that challenging period in GH history, I hope we never see an Eckerdt on screen again. Even when they occasionally mention the Eckerdt Bakery, my skin starts to crawl.

LMAO!! Ya, that era was not Monty’s best work!! To say the very least!!

Although…the character of Jenny did blossom nicely towards the end! When they have her a nice flattering hairstyle, gave her more personality, and pitted her against Tracy, I really enjoyed her.

Cady is a fireball, she brings subtle grit and total commitment to all she bites into, and always retains her likeable star aura. I look forward to her next adventure.

It will be great to have her back on any one of the shows. Y&R has been my favorite for a long time, so hope she goes there! Welcome back Cady!

I think she’d be perfect for Jack .Caddy is beautiful, the right age and everything Jack needs in a woman.

I can’t agree on this one, Violet. When Cady played Kelly Andrews years back, Cady and Peter Bergman didn’t click at all, at least not for me. I was hoping she’d be Ashland Locke’s unmentioned sister who could knock Victoria off her high horse. Or something similar. Pray she won’t be ANOTHER long lost Quartermaine on GH!

I see what you’re saying, now that you refreshed my memory. I had forgotten that kook Kelly she played, keeping Jack prisoner on that island. Thinking back, she seemed altogether different than the Cady we all know and love. Yes, the last thing we need is another Q.

Oh see, I did believe Peter Bergman and Cady McClain had some fantastic chemistry. Hell, even in writing my own web serial drama, years prior to McClain joining The Young and the Restless, I wrote my Bergman and McClain characters as spouses.

I would love to see Cady on G.H.; real life husband plays Dr. Kevin Collins on the show. He is married to Lara Collins; I would hate to see them break up though.

I’m hoping she is NOT returning to Y&R. I’ve never been a big fan of McClain. I never watched AMC so I can’t speak to her performance on that show. However, I thought she was a poor recast of Rosanna Cabot on ATWT and didn’t think she was very good as a recast of Kelly on Y&R. I know that I may be in the minority. McClain has had a long career and a following among viewers. I’m just not one of them. To me, she has little screen presence and I would prefer not to watch her in anything… Read more »

I’m having a major guess at this moment, but maybe she will be on Y and R as Avery Clark. Cady is 52 years old, and Jessica who previously played Avery is 51 years old. Phyllis needs someone on canvas and it doesn’t seem like either Daniel or Summer will be returning to GC anytime soon. Maybe this will allow Nick to have a rekindled romance. I don’t know. Just an idea. Y and R needs to get a major jolt! Especially with Richard Burgi departing.

On Jan. 11 episode of GH, Austin mentioned his mother to Britt….

Cady is one year younger than Roger Howarth. Austin’s mother, Charity was already up there in years when she took up with Jimmy Lee. Probably not a character we need to see again on screen.

Perhaps long forgotten Kristin Forrester on B and B?

Hayden on GH?

The go-to recast for Kristen should be Brenda Epperson, who resembles O.G. portrayer, Teri Ann Linn.

GH please. She could play that southern Belle that was Martin Grey’s “the one that got away!”. She could give Lucy some competition and Michael E Knight a chance to play some romantic comedy. I miss his smile and the mischevious glint in his eyes. Let Martin Grey lighten up just a smidge.

Michael B. Jordan Recalls His Acting Start as All My Children’s Reggie in SNL Opening Monologue

Last night, Michael B. Jordan hosted Saturday Night Live.  The Creed star, who is the director of the upcoming Creed III due out in March, took to the stage to deliver his opening monologue, and right off the top he mentioned his beginnings as All My Children’s Reggie.

Jordan portrayed Reggie from 2003-2006 on the ABC soap opera (his character was eventually adopted by Jack Montgomery).

When Michael hit the stage, he shared: “Yesterday, I had a crazy full-circle moment. We pre-shot some videos for the show and when I got to the studio I realized it was the exact same place where I shot one of my first acting roles on the soap opera All My Children.

He then tossed to a clip of his 16-year-old self in which Reggie says, “sometimes the animal in me gets kind of crazy” and then howls life a wolf at the end of the scene. Back to the SNL stage, Jordan said mockingly, “I’m pretty sure I hit puberty mid-howl.”

Jordan ended his monologue by looping it back to his early acting days on AMC, sharing: “I just want to say, I’m so grateful to be standing on this stage. Sometimes, I can take myself a little too seriously but tonight, I’m going to have fun, I’m just going to go for it. And maybe, just maybe let the inner animal get a little crazy.”

Watch Michael’s opening monologue below.  Then let us know, what did you think of the the AMC Reggie clip reference? Do you recall Michael’s days on the ABC daytime drama series? Comment below.

TONIGHT: AMC Alum Jonathan Bennett in Hallmark’s First LGBTQ+ Led Rom-Com ‘The Holiday Sitter’

In Hallmark’s first holiday movie offering featuring a same-sex love story at its epicenter, Jonathan Bennett (ex-JR Chandler, All My Children) not only stars, but is the project’s executive producer.  And, on Sunday night, when The Holiday Sitter premieres at 8 p.m. EST, it’s a big deal.

After much outcry for Hallmark’s Countdown to Christmas programming block to be more inclusive, the channel is now poised to be on the right side of history.

The set-up of this ‘meet-cute’ rom-com goes something like this: Sam (Bennett) who is a workaholic has to ditch his Hawaiian holiday plans when he is asked to watch his sister’s children (his niece and nephew).  However, when Sam becomes overwhelmed, he gets a helping hand from his sister’s neighbor, Jason played by George Krissa. And within a blink of an eye, Sam and Jason find they are both unattached and attracted to each other, and Christmas becomes a lot brighter for the two of them.

As for Bennett, he previously appeared in Hallmark’s 2020 film, The Christmas House which was the channel’s first holiday movie to include a same-sex storyline. He later returned to that role in last year’s sequel The Christmas House 2: Deck Those Halls.

Bennett told USA Today on tonight’s milestone Hallmark holiday tale: “What’s so special about The Holiday Sitter is that it’s the first time we’ll see two men meet-cute and fall in love at Christmas. We tell a story that’s really important, so people that are watching it feel seen when they watch it. But just like Christmas is for everybody, The Holiday Sitter is for everybody… It just happens to have two men as the lead.”

Hallmark Media’s Executive Vice-President, Lisa Hamilton told Deadline: “We felt that it was time for a story with a gay couple. We are really trying to make it so that everybody sees themselves when they tune in. We are trying to stay true to the Hallmark brand values, one of which is inclusiveness. It’s a true of Hallmark cards, which has a card for every kind of occasion. In the past, there was a focus on one particular kind of love story, and I think everybody thought, ‘wow, we’re not telling the whole story here.’”

The timing of The Holiday Sitter comes after Candace Cameron Bure received much backlash for her sentiments when she told the Wall Street Journal that the Great American Family network in which she stars in several of their holiday films, will “keep traditional marriage at the core” and never do stories/movies featuring same-sex couples.

Check out a preview for The Holiday Sitter below.

Now let us know, what do you think of the Hallmark Channel finally featuring a gay love story for one of its holiday films? Will you be checking out the landmark movie? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
