Guest Stars Offer Helping Hand

By Angela Rosa


(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Various guest stars offer a helping hand to some of Pine Valley’s most beleaguered.

Susan Lucci

Starting on April 14, real-life doctor Gail Saltz begins playing the role of Ryan’s psychoanalyst. The amnesiac looks to be in good hands as he struggles to deal with the quandaries of his memory blockage. In the real world, Dr. Gail Saltz M.D. is a renowned practicing psychiatrist, columnist, bestselling author, and television commentator. NBC Nightly News achor Tom Brokaw once referred to Saltz as “a voice of wisdom and insight in a world of confusion and contradictions.”

On the Friday, April 25 edition of “AMC,” a group of Erica, Erica Kane’s biggest fans gather outside of the fashionista’s prison to rally for her freedom. Amongst that groups of fans will be real-life R&B boy band “B5.” The band made up of five brothers, who happen to be fans of the daytime drama, will perform their song “Erica Cain,” – Susan Lucci’s alter ego makes an appearance in the video to the track – from their album Don’t Talk, Just Listen at the “Free Erica Kane!” rally.

Though a nice thought, the rally is an unsuccessful tactic – so Opal brings in the big guns: the richest person on the planet earth. Conglomerate Warren Buffet, the head of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., will make his third “AMC” appearance in May. He will play himself, of course. Opal hopes her friend, who is worth no less than $62 billion, can use his influence to get her best gal pal off the hook for her insider trading conviction. Buffet, an “AMC” fan and a close friend of “AMC” creator Agnes Nixon, first appeared on the soap in 1991 with then-ABC chairman Thomas S. Murphy.

    McClain Makes a Spirited Return

    With the ABC soap operas profusely bleeding out viewers, “AMC” has seemingly chosen a path of goodwill in an attempt to bandage the situation. Fans of one of “AMC’s” all-time greatest super couples, Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Dixie, will reap some benefits from that effort. Many shocked and disappointed fans vividly remember that Dixie’s last go-around in Pine Valley ended with the former Mrs. Martin abruptly killed off before she and Tad could share a long-awaited reunion with their daughter. ABC promises that Tad and Dixie will get that reunion as Dixie guides her oft-time husband into “the loving embrace of their daughter, Kate.” Understandably some fans aren’t pleased because Dixie will be facilitating this reunion as a ghost and not in the flesh. McClain, though, asks fans to “please give the story a chance” as she’s had the chance to discuss the story with the powers that be and feels it will be “very uplifting, fun and rewarding for fans.”

    Expect Dixie to also interact with her former brother-in-law, Jake Martin – who will be played by Ricky Paull Goldin as of May 2. In the newest issue of TV Guide, “AMC” Executive Producer Julie Hanan Carruthers explains that Dr. Martin has spent the past few months being held captive in an enemy camp in Darfur, where detective Aidan Devane (Aiden Turner) will go on a potentially deadly mission to save him. Once home, “emotionally scarred and carrying a very big secret,” Jake will be in no mood to reunite with his family or to stay in Pine Valley. Dixie, who has “a lot of work she must do before her spirit can be free,” according to Carruthers, will be instrumental in helping Jake see things differently.

    McClain played Dixie Cooney Martin on “AMC” from 1988 to 1996, from 1998 to 2002 and from late 2005 to January 2007. For her work as the beleaguered heroine, McClain earned a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Ingénue in 1990. When not on the popular ABC drama, McClain could regularly be seen on the popular CBS sudser “As the World Turns” (from 2002 to 2005, and from July 2007 to January 2008). As Rosanna Cabot on “ATWT,” the actress earned a 2004 Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress.
