The current Kendall Hart Slater, Alicia Minshew,  made a statement this afternoon after the confirmation that the original Kendall, played by Sarah Michelle Gellar is now coming back to All My Children before its network television conclusion on September 23rd for a guest appearance!  In response to Gellar’s earlier comments that Gellar wanted to come back and play a different role than Kendall, Alicia had this to say to Soap Opera Digest about the endless possibilities of a scene with her!

Alicia Minshew: “That is brilliant! I think her ideas are brilliant and I hope if she does have a scene at ConFusion that I get to be in it! Whatever she ends up doing, I hope I get to be a part of it. I think it would be so funny if the two of us looked at each other and went, ‘Don’t I know you from somewhere?’ or if we said the same thing at the same time and looked at each other like, ‘Hmmmm.’ I’ve only met Sarah one time, but she couldn’t have been sweeter. I would love, love, love to work with her.  This is what’s really weird.  I actually had a dream about her last night! She had her baby right around when I had Willow and I was just looking at a picture of her with her daughter in a magazine, and maybe that’s why she popped up in my dream, but I totally dreamed that we were hanging out doing mommy things together. It was crazy!”

So what do you think Kendall vs. Kendall? What should the historic soap moment be if both Alicia and Sarah are in a scene together?

    For copyright reasons, I don’t think so. This is ABC after all.

    As far as I’m concern, Alicia is Kendall and Sarah is Buffy.

    I love it! Alicia is my all time favorite daytime actress but SMG is a close second so to have the two of them on together is like a dream come true.

    I agree with Alicia, it would have to be fun. Both are excellent actresses and it would be interesting. I’m sure it will be written just right! :-)

    I WOULD LOVE TO SEE ALICIA AND SARAH IN THE SAME SCENE. I HAVE WATCHED AMC SINCE THE FIRST DAY IT CAME ON THE AIR AND ALL THE MEMORIES IS WHAT WE A RE GOING TO HAVE SOON. ALTHOUGH I HEAR THINGS ABOUT A CABLE CHANNEL FOR IT WE , THE FANS, CAN ONLY HOPE THAT BECOMES REAL. I LOVE ALICIA AS KENDALL AND THE FANS HAVE GOTTEN TO KNOW HER AS KENDALL BUT THE EARLY FANS WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER SMG AS THE YOUNGER KENDALL. THESCENES WITH SUSAN LUCCI WERE JUST ON THATS FOR SURE.

    I would just like to be a fly on the wall when she runs into Susuan Lucci ! Don’t they have an intense dislike for each other? Or is that nasty gossip!

    glad to see her comeback2 replied

    I love that she is coming back. I’ve always loved her and loved her as Kendall but, I feel that Alicia is a great Kendal and did not want Sarah to come back if it meant Alicia was going to off the air. I love SMG she has always been a nice person and though I’m not sure, but years ago I think I read somewhere that Susan did not like SMG. It might have been a jeou thing as SMG was the one the show centered at that time, and SL came back after not being 100% successful off the show. SMG left because she was not happy with the coldness she received from SL. SL though seems to have grown up a bit (lol if you could grow up at the age she is) and accepted others being just as important on the show. Thank god she did not pull the same thing on alicia. When I heard they were bringing the character back I was worried, that Susan would be a diva again. Not sure if Susan is still a diva but she did give SMG a hard time and SMG at that time was under 18 and SL should be ashamed of herself for treating a young girl the way she did.

    SL will suck it up though because now she’s in her late 60′s and knows that she can’t compete. SMG is a nice person and has always been a nice person.

    In addition you could have Sarah’s character go on the attack against Erica and have Alicia as Kendall stand up for Erica and then have Sarah say something like…”You can bet if I was your daughter I wouldn’t be so nice” haha

    I like Alicia as Kendall but to me the real Kendall Heart is SMG. She originated the roll as Kendall and when I think of Kendall the first picture that comes to my head is SMG. Not saying Alicia is not doing a great job, she is and she is fine !!!! Talk about a stunning woman… So if I had to lose SMG, Alicia is a good replacement… and nice to look at.

    Maybe they should bring SMG back as Silver, Erica’s sister !!!! I should be a writer for AMC. It wouldnt be cancelled if I was in charge…
