<strong>Susan Lucci</strong> portrayed the iconic role of Erica Kane on ABC's "All My Children" for more than 41 years. Sadly, the character would last be seen on September 23, 2011, when a shot rang out during an event that brought Pine Valley's most prominent citizens together. Despite Prospect Park bringing back the series for a short-lived online iteration in 2013, Lucci was unfortunately not part of the cast. Currently pulling double duty as host of the Investigation Discovery series, "Deadly Affairs," and starring in Lifetime's "Devious Maids," Lucci recently told <em>Soap Opera Network</em>, during an Investigation Discovery/<em>Glamour Magazine</em> event honoring actresses <strong>Rosario Dawson</strong>,<strong> Marcia Gay Harden</strong>, <strong>Tamara Taylor </strong>and<strong> Stephanie March</strong>, that she remains proud of her daytime run as Erica Kane and that's she's having a great time with where her career has taken her since.
