So after a week’s worth of conflicting reports, it has been confirmed through an ABC spokesperson to ABC Soaps In Depth that indeed Dr. David Hayward has taken his last breath, and thus Vincent Irizarry has exited the ABC soap. “We are sorry to lose Vincent, but David’s death was storyline-dictated and the payoff of this story will reveal many unexpected twists and plot developments,” says the rep in a statement to the publication.

This news came to light after Irizarry’s recent statement on his website: “Regarding my character’s sudden end and any previously reported news of negotiations between me and ABC, those statements were not authorized and premature,” says the new message. “Unfortunately, there’s really not much more I can say at this time except how truly appreciative I am for all the comments on websites and message boards which have been written in support of my work and my character. There would be no doubt to me whatsoever, if I ever do return to AMC it will be in greater part because of this wonderful outpouring from all of you who love the show and David as much as I do. I am forever grateful to all of you…we’ll miss you, Vincent …and David!”

Sudden demise? Did they kill him off with poisoned pancakes?
The guys been employed in daytime for 25 years. AMC is crazy to let the talented Irizarry go.

Does this mean there is room for a new Dr. in Pine Valley?
May I suggest Dr. Reid Oliver. He and his partner Luke Snyder come fully equipped with a built in fanbase. A very large one.

He and his character were the reasons I watched All My Children. I thought his acting were superb, and great to look at too. He gave the show excitement. I don’t know how you can bring him back, however others have come back from the dead. The show isn’t the same without him.

Vincent, you truly are a great actor, otherwise you could have not made us hate you (David) so much! You will be missed. Good luck in your future endeavors.

Zach is not worth the money. Boring, same suits, same disposition, no comparison to David. Although I do think David could have done a better job on Kendall’s heart scar.

The writers at ABC for All My Children are truly moronic—-how do you get rid of such an incredible actor as Vincent . He made the show interesting and his goodguy/badguy portrayal of David Haywood is comparable to none. Vincent – you are an incredible actor and don’t let the idiotic writers at all my children tell you otherwise. You will be sorely missed, but fear not, I’m sure some other soap, with the common sense to see how truly gifted an actor you are, will sign you up in not time. Shame on you All My Children writers— unfortunately… Read more »

I keep hoping that somehow David managed to pull a big hoax off, and that he is alive, well, and just waiting to return to Pine Valley. I believe the show really needs David to add some spice to it…JR can’t be the only bad boy on there. So, somehow someone has to convince the writers they can finda way to bring David back and create even more of those twists and turns they want.

I miss Zach, he is easier on the eyes, but I am and is tired of Kendal putting everyone in front of Zach. She just keep doing the same thing over and over and over. It like watching the same movie again and again with her and Zach’s relationship. So for that I am glad Zach is dead. It Kendal’s fault Zach is dead, she should stop putting people before Zach. So if Zach dying means I do not have to look at Kendal running behind everyone else and their family playing “captain save a boat” in regards to everyone… Read more »

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.
