In an new blog post on the Tainted Dreams website, renowned soap columnist, Carolyn Hinsey spoke with All My Children fan favorite Thorsten Kaye (Zach) following the first week of production of Prospect Park’s reboot of the series.
In the interview, Kaye discusses the atmosphere on set, the storytelling, the recent cast photo shoot, and more. There were two interesting excerpts that caught our eye, that fans have been inquiring about. First, what will be the state of the marriage between Zack and Kendall, in lieu of Alicia Minshew (Kendall) not yet confirmed to return to the series, and if Thorsten’s real-life wife, Susan Haskell might make a return to One Life to Live as Marty Saybrooke. Here is what he had to say below:
Thorsten on the state of the relationship of Zendall moving into AMC 2.0: “Someone says, ‘I’m sorry about you and Kendall.’ That makes me want to watch: ‘What happened? Where is she?’ I think people will want to tune in to see how we tell the story. In theater, you often know the end of the play but you still go to see how the actors tell the story. In soaps, you don’t know the ending which is cool in its own way. ‘Hey, you and Kendall aren’t together and your wife may be with someone else.’ That informs every scene I do. I care about where we left these people. ‘Where are they now? The writers aren’t ignoring past relationships. I’ll jump on that train.”
Thorsten on if Susan Haskell might return to OLTL even though the couple is raising two young daughters: “I hope she does One Life to Live. It would be nice for both of us to work a half hour away. This has been a tough few months for Connecticut. I want to be close to home.”
So AMC fans, what do you think about how the show will handle the relationship
