‘AMC’s’ Jill Larson on Show Cancellation: ‘It Was Not A Surprise’
On her official Facebook page, “All My Children” star Jill Larson (Opal Cortlandt) broke her social media silence after it became apparent earlier this week that Prospect Park was not moving forward with a new season of either “All My Children” or “One Life to Live,” at least “at this time,” according to the actress.
“I finally got the official call, saying PP is not going forward with ‘AMC’ ‘at this time,’ left the door open a crack, hmmm! As disappointing as that news is, it was not a surprise. Just as they did the first time, PP chose to remain silent regarding their activities, and now that I’ve had some experience with them, I do believe that it was because Jeff [Kwatinetz] just kept on beating the bushes trying to raise the money, never willing to cry uncle. I am sad for all of us, from Jeff to all of you, but gosh I’m grateful for the chance we had to make something new and wonderful from our beloved shows,” Larson said. She added, “Maybe when more fans are computer-savvy, and go online for content as a regular habit, investors will feel comfortable putting money into what was a grand experiment, perhaps ahead of its time, and only time will tell. Take care of yourselves, my lovelies, sending love to you all!”
