With today's news that Prospect Park has officially begun making offers to actors in hopes of them joining "All My Children" 2.0 in time for its January 2012 debut, it's only fitting to get an insiders perspective on the innerworkings of a canceled soap opera.

Cady McClain returned to "All My Children" during the Tuesday, May 17 broadcast of the soap despite filming her first scenes just seven days prior (May 10).

During fan club weekend last month, McClain spoke with Soap Opera Network about her return, what the cancellation news meant for cast and crew, the reunion of Tad Martin (Michael E. Knight) and Dixie Cooney (McClain) and even how she got to wear sweats to work while filming scenes of Dixie laying in bed.

On Thursday, July 28, while visiting the "Days of our Lives" set, my crew and I had walked in noticing a tray of cupcakes sitting at the security desk.

After completing some scenes that are set to air in October, Burnett and Casey Deidrick (Chad DiMera) headed outside to Salem Place, one of the sets no longer used by the soap, and spent more than 11 minutes talking with us about their characters, what they do in their personal life outside of work, and some of their favorite TV shows and movies . Also, for those fans clamoring for some Chill (Chad/Will), Deidrick shared he's not opposed to a possible pairing.
