This past Saturday; in a very special fan gathering featuring many of your favorites from All My Children, the citizens of Pine Valley showed up to say “Thank you” and to meet fans from all across the country and abroad for the annual All My Children Fan Club Weekend Main Event. While spirits were high throughout the day, it was bittersweet as well, as this might just be the final time that perhaps many of the cast will be together in front of their beloved audience. (Depending of course on how all of the issues are resolved with Prospect Park taking the show to the web) Regardless, this was to be the last fan event while the show is on network television and wrapping up an unbelievable 40 year run!
While there were so many highlights of the day that we will be reported on throughout the week at On-Air On-Soaps, there was none more special than Susan Lucci making an appearance, sitting with her castmates on the stage, and thanking the fans for sticking by the show through thick and thin. Susan let them the audience know, that it was the fans’ voices that truly helped keep AMC going and moving to the web… as she put it at one point in her speech, “When fate hands you a lemon, make lemonade. And that is exactly what we are going to do!” She was of course referring to taking the axing of AMC and turning it around and having the show saved and moved online!
Of note: Michael E. Knight, Walt Willey and Cameron Mathison could not make the Saturday event, but we hear Cameron was on hand for hours at the Friday night, AMC Past and Present Cast Gathering!
