Deadline is reporting that Eden Riegel is returning to TOLN's "All My Children" to once again portray Bianca Montgomery for a cameo guest arc. Riegel last appeared on "AMC" in January 2010. The role was later played by actress Christina Bennett Lind, who is currently appearing in John W. Engeman Theater Production of "Wait Until Dark."
Earlier today, Prospect Park announced that actress Julia Barr will reprise her role of Brooke English on TOLN's "All My Children," which resumes production on Monday, February 25. Barr, who last appeared during the finale episode of the soap operas ABC run in September 2011, has signed on as a series regular, a Prospect Park representative tells Soap Opera Network.
We're just days away from "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" resuming production with Prospect Park, after more than a year having gone by since airing their final ABC episodes, but "AMC's" Jill Larson (Opal Cortlandt) is helping build anticipation for eager fans as the actress has posted a behind the scenes video of sets being built at the Stamford, CT studio for both series as well as a photo of herself alongside David Canary (Adam/Stuart Chandler), who reportedly has returned to the series now that filming is essentially in his back yard (Canary reportedly lives in CT).
As previously reported, "All My Children" has named Marlene McPherson and Elizabeth Snyder as co-head writers. What's so significant about their hiring is that this marks the first time since 2003 that a daytime soap opera has had two females leading its writing team. The last time was with Ellen Weston and Carolyn Culliton co-head writing CBS' "Guiding Light." Prior to that was in 2002, when Millee Taggert and Culliton also co-head wrote for "GL."
"All My Children" and "One Life to Live" casting director Alison Goodman and assistant casting director Michael Morlani have been busy these last couple of weeks casting pivotal roles for the reboots of our beloved daytime soaps. Now comes word that one pivotal role may have gone to daytime newcomer Jordan Lane Price, who tweeted just a short time ago, "Soo I'm pretty much beyond excited to start work. #PineValley, here I come :) #AMC." Both Goodman and Morlani responded to Price's tweets with Goodman saying, "I couldn't be happier! Just remember me when you are a big freakin star!" Morlani added, " SO excited. Me too....remember me as well!"
Sure it looks generic (and that's just us being nice) and may not be the final product, but TradeMarkia.com has a posting on its website which shows that Prospect Park Networks, LLC has filed a trademark on the TOLN logo. There is also a posting for TOLN's more widely known name - the OnLine Network.
With just a week to go before production is set to begin once more on "All My Children" and "One Life to Live," after more than a year since both series aired their last episodes on ABC, a number of behind the scenes personnel have been hired on to help spearhead the soaps into the digital world via Hulu and iTunes later this spring.
Just a short time ago, singer Fergie (real name Stacy Ferguson) announced on Twitter that she and husband Josh Duhamel (ex-Leo du Pres, "All My Children") are expecting their first child. The multi Grammy Award winner tweeted an instagram photo of herself and Duhamel with the caption "Josh & Me & BABY makes three!!! #mylovelybabybump"
When we reported that Marlene McPherson (pictured right, with former "DAYS" co-head writer Darrell Ray Thomas) had been hired on as head writer of Prospect Park's version of "All My children" back on January 23, it was unclear at the time as to whether she would be joined by a co-head writer. Soap Opera Network has since learned that it'll be a "Days of our Lives" reunion of sorts for "AMC" as McPherson will be joined by Elizabeth Snyder, who was an Associate Head Writer at "DAYS" from 2011-2012.
