    I wish her well on “Tainted Dreams.” She will be missed on AMC, but you never know what the future holds. Maybe one day she’ll be back.

    ill always wonder now if ABC hadnt moved AMC from New York to California if PP wouldve been able to convince some of AMCs other former stars to join the reboot like they have with OLTL, that didnt make the move, and has a better selection of its vets. I dont mind cameos, and AMC is getting back some faves of mine for longer stays like Dixie, David, Brooke, Angie and Jessie and hopefully some new favorites will interest me but OLTL feels more like the serial i remember than AMC does. However, im still giving both equal chances to renew my interest in them but if not i still hope they both succeed.

    I think it’s great that Alicia has other projects going on.
    She was very good in the role of Kendall Hart, but I still think (I’ve said this before)
    that if the writers feel that Kendall is a key character in Pine Valley, they should
    consider a recast – that is strictly my opinion. If they feel they want to “write around”
    her until Alicia becomes available, that’s fine too.
    As for Susan Lucci, who of course plays her mom, Erica Kane, if she can’t come back,
    write around her or write Erica out of the show for a while, she could be chasing Jack out on the West Coast or in Europe, who knows.
    I wonder if other fans are getting as weary as I am of hearing these “who can’t come back right now” stories. I’m a LONG time fan of the show (longer than I should admit)
    but hey, there are Casting Agents and actors dying for work. I am sure there are a thousand pretty Brunette actresses who could play Kendall.

    Totally agree! They should recast the role of Kendall Hart….Alicia was a recast. It took me a while to warm up to her, because I was a huge Sarah Michelle Gellar fan, but I eventually caved and began to enjoy Alicia’s portrayal of the character. They could easily find someone to take on this role. Quit treating this actors like they are irreplaceable…..She will be missed, but soap fans have always been resilient, and we will move on and accept a new actress in this role.

    Great fun interview. I’m so excited about Tainted Dreams and can’t wait until it airs. I love the theme of “behind the scenes at a soap” and knowing the story is written by Sonia makes it even more exciting because it will be realistic. I can’t wait to see Alicia Minshew in that role and I hear there are other great actors on board too, i.e., Austin Peck and Walt Willey.

    I am an AMC fan and will miss Kendall, but right now I’m more excited about Tainted Dreams. Can’t wait.

    I’m very happy for Alicia and looking forward to Tainted Dreams. And I most definitely want her back on AMC as Kendall Hart Slater! She is Kendall.

    I’m still hopeful we’ll see Alicia on AMC. I get the feeling she still feels attached to the role of Kendall and AMC seems to want her on the show, too. In the meantime, I wish her well on her new projects. It’s great to see her so busy, happy and looking amazing.

    Great interview with Alicia and Sonia. I am happy for Alicia, she has so many projects in front of her. Can’t wait to see her in Tainted Dreams. Maybe with Sonia, a producer at AMC and creator of Tainted Dreams, she can work it out so that Alicia can appear again in AMC while doing Tainted Dreams.

    I hate to agree, but I do. I wonder if AMC is successful on line, how many of the hold outs would ask to come back? I say they should focus on the cast they have and make AMC a greatshow.

    I was wondering if there will be any vampires on the webs Tainted Dreams? Tainted Dreams was the title for Port Charles vampire story that was on years ago and its theme was the song by the same name, so i wonder if there will be a connection or was the vampire stuff finished on GH? Im joking…

    I like the idea of going behind the scenes of a soap and the soap-in-a-soap concept. I’m looking forward to watching Tainted Dreams. I think Alicia Minshew will be great as the “Sonia” of the show. It sounds like Sonia knows what she is talking about when it comes to soaps and is proud to be working on them. This sounds like a great series.

    Thanks for posting the interview.
