A character proclaims, “Pine Valley lost a part of its soul that night, but today the sun shines bright.” That day in particular is Monday, April 29, when “All My Children” premieres with all new episodes via Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes with Pine Valley’s citizens having picked things up five years after that traumatic night Adam Chandler (David Canary) and Brooke English (Julia Barr) celebrated their engagement and a shot went off. Fans will quickly be able to jump right back into the soap where “cute, sexy, action and adventure, romance and sex” may be a simple way to summarize the storytelling on any given daytime soap, but on “AMC” things are just all the better.
Like “One Life to Live” with its storyline integrated, or otherwise, celebrity appearances with the likes of Snoop Lion, Australian DJ sisters Mim and Liv Nervo, Jenni ‘JWOWW’ Farley (Nikki; “Jersey Shore”), rapper Riff Raff, etc., The OnLine Network has announced that RCA recording artist and American Music Awards winner Hot Chelle Rae will appear in the Thursday, May 9 episode of “All My Children” as they perform their brand new single “Hung Up.”
The OnLine Network’s “All My Children” has a new logo, a new home, new actors and of course, a new theme song. Fans have already been privy to details on the first three fresh and shiny elements on that list, and low and behold, it looks like we may have all been subtly introduced to the last one, as well!
There are lots of questions surrounding the Monday, April 29 launch of “All My Children” on The OnLine Network (TOLN), the main one being, “What can we expect?” Debbi Morgan (Angie Hubbard), Darnell Williams (Jesse Hubbard) and David Canary (Adam Chandler) took that question by storm during the show’s first official photo shoot in February, and while they couldn’t reveal storyline details, the three stars did open up about the high number of new and young faces on the show, how the shorter 30-minute time slot will affect their acting and how they feel about the women who hold Pine Valley’s future in their hands.
As previously reported, “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” began production on Monday, February 25 in Stamford, CT for new episodes scheduled to release later this spring on Hulu and iTunes. Today, The OnLine Network (TOLN) announced the following contract cast for the reboot of “AMC”:
Soap Opera Network has learned exclusively that Denyse Tontz has been cast in the contract role of Miranda Montgomery, Bianca’s (Eden Riegel) now aged daughter. It was previously reported that Jordan Lane Price had been cast in the role, but it looks like Price will be portraying the role of a new character by the name of Celia Fitzgerald instead.
PREVIOUS: With news that Eden Riegel would be reprising her role of Bianca Montgomery on TOLN‘s “All My Children,” for what Deadline calls a “cameo guest arc,” the actress has taken to Twitter to thank fans for their kind words and to welcome her “daughter” to the show.
“Thank you all for the outpouring of support today. I am thrilled to be returning as Bianca!” said Riegel. She later added, “So I guess I better follow my… ahem… daughter: @JordanLanePrice Gabby, you’re still to young for twitter. I hope.”
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.”
UPDATE 1:30 AM ET: Looks like Jordan Price will be portraying an aged Miranda Montgomery!
PREVIOUS 12:13 AM ET: “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!”
