5 September 27th, 2011 AMC Finale Behind-the-Scenes of the Last Day – Photo Gallery!


As many watched the final episode on network television of All My Children, this past Friday, a few weeks earlier the cast taped their last scenes.  After the curtain came down, the cast gathered for some very emotional moments with AMC creator, Agnes Nixon who read her famous AMC signature lines, sang a song befitting of the moment, and toasted with the cast for a job well-done for 41 years of outstanding drama.

Surrounded by the likes of Susan Lucci (Erica) and David Canary (Adam/Stuart), Nixon was front and center and given her due by the final cast of the show, and some of the returning veterans.  In addition, a one of a kind cake was brought out that had the cast in sheer awe! Richard Ruskell, the pastry chef from the Montage in Beverly Hills, California, and the winner from a past season of Last Cake Standing donated the historic cake. A  big fan of the show, Ruskell had been working on it for over a month. It was a true work of art.

After the jump, view some final images from the cast gathering on the final day of taping as they said their goodbyes, and celebrated their achievements!

    Still can’t believe its finished on TV after 41 years. That one hour seems very odd now! These are lovely pictures and i am hoping that most (including Susan) will return!

    Really?????? I am so tired of Susan Luce Susan Luce Susan Luce. Yes, her body and face have got it all for the age she is, but the last few shows of her looking up to the sky at Hollywood and Vine with the wonderment and amazement of a new fresh young actress was almost too much to bear. I understand soaps are fantasy but sometimes you just need to reel in these writers and ask them if this is a ‘serious moment” or a laughable one. And then the Rhett Butler act at the end just took me over the edge.

    It was one of the most memorable moments in my “daytime” life. Making the cake for All My Children was an honor. Also, back in the day i was an under-five when AMC was in NYC. I delivered a pizza to Jesse and Jenny when they were hanging out in NYC at Mrs. Gonzalez’s
