Several weeks ago the revival of All My Children re-introduced the character of Colby Chandler, a part that on the ABC version had been recast quite a few times! But this time, it looks like the AMC casting director, Alison Goodman and the powers-that-be who preside over Pine Valley got it right with Brooke Newton (Colby)!
In a relatively short amount of time, this scheming bitch on wheels version of Colby has slept with Pete (Rob Scott Wilson), slept with David (Vincent Irizarry) insinuated herself into the Chandler Media Gala, and is making poor Celia (Jordan Lane Price) feel awful about herself and her relationship with Pete, no matter what Pete says to Celia to try to smooth things over after sleeping with the hot to trot Chandler gal!
But on this week’s second episode of All My Children #44, Colby after hitting the hay with David, is hit with the news that her childhood friend Cassandra (Sal Stowers) is in bad shape, and she runs to the hospital to see her! Once there, Colby tries to cheer up the battered and pregnant Cass with a beauty make-over! But it is to no avail. However, for the first time as viewers, we see Colby has a heart! She loves her dear friend Cassandra, and wants to help her, even helping her friend get an abortion!
So we ask you, what did you think of the key scene this week? What do you think of Brooke Newton as the latest Colby Chandler? Would you give her thumbs up? Share your comments below, and watch a clip from the Cassandra and Colby scene entitled, “Making the Pain” after the jump!
